I play a game of Chess with the pupil and point out common mistakes.
Apart from the games, I teach up to 70 things to help you improve your Chess game with exercises and puzzles.
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 29 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.
