I play a game of Chess with the pupil and point out common mistakes.
Apart from the games, I can teach many things to help you improve your Chess game with exercises and puzzles, including an excellent Chess program for in between our lessons.
My lessons also cover the Opening and understanding the ideas behind the moves and not learning loads of moves parrot fashion, also because many opponents won't play the book moves.
I have been playing Chess for 30 years and my Chess tuition helps my pupils improve significantly.
My lessons are ideal from complete Beginner Level to a good Club Player Level with the patience to go over every minute detail that not many people explain in some cases.

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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
This is to confirm that Matthew
tutored my son in
Spanish from February to the end of May 2012,
focusing on grammar.
Matthew was clear in his objectives and always
reliable and punctual.
My son achieved an A* in GCSE Spanish and
Matthew's help in preparing
for the exam has been much appreciated.
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.
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.
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
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
