I write to confirm that Matthew tutored my daughter in GCSE French. She achieved a grade A*. He was thorough in his preparation. His subject knowledge was good and he was always very reliable in terms of attendance and punctuality.

A
Alan

Matthew was a French Tutor to my son James from Christmas 2010 until May 2011. He only achieved a D in his French mock exam but went on to achieve an A grade in his final French International GCSE examination with only 5 months of his tuition. We are therefore very happy to recommend Matthew to any other parents wanting tuition as he pays great attention to detail in both his explanations and spotting mistakes in a way and to a degree not seen by many tutors.

Alex

Matthew is a great tutor. While I was doing my International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), I was really struggling to meet the high requirements from our maths teachers. I especially had large gaps in algebra, which Matthew helped me fill in. Once that was fixed, I went from strength to strength. Matthew helped me advance from a predicted grade of 3 to an actual grade of 6 in Maths (7 is the highest), in just 5 months. I have got into Bath University.

Dawn

I was searching for a Spanish tutor for my daughter who was predicted an E grade at GCSE and found Matthew's details on a website. From the very beginning Matthew was professional and helpful and willing to go the extra mile (which was very helpful as my daughter was not keen on the subject at all but needed an improved grade). With Matthew's help, my daughter gained a B grade which is more than we had hoped for! Matthew is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him!

B
Bevan

Matthew helped me raise my standard from a B level in class to an A* in the GCSE Maths exam. He gave me a lot of opportunities to practise the application of Mathematical concepts that I didn't understand. He made me understand all the things I was confused about.
I also went on to achieve an A grade at AS Level, also with the help of Matthew's tutoring.

We were very happy with the GCSE Spanish and Maths Tutoring we had for our daughter, Alisha. She got A's in both subjects, and the help she received from Matthew was invaluable. I have no hesitation in recommending Matthew for tutoring.

Sharon

Matthew tutored my son in French for his IGCSE, Matthew is thorough, very organised and clear in his teaching.He was a great support for my son who gained an A*.

I would highly recommend him.

S
Sally

We sought Matthew's services when my son's French marks didn't appear to be reflecting his potential.
Matthew is knowledgeable and encouraging. He provided reliable and interesting sessions that helped my son enormously, allowing him to became more enthusiastic and engaged.
Matthew was able to effectively offer appropriate extension activities whilst supporting what was was being taught at school.
We would highly recommend Matthew as a French tutor.
My son achieved and A* in his GCSE

C
Claire

Liam had a predicted grade B for his GCSE Maths, so we enlisted Matthew's help as a Maths Tutor at Easter and Matthew tutored Liam up to his Maths exams. Liam has achieved a grade A through the help of Matthew's tuition, encouragement and homework that he gave Liam.

Liam is delighted that he achieved this grade as he did not anticipate to achieve above his predicted grade but the extra tuition with Matthew did help Liam achieve his grade A
