Engaging, professional and qualified Teacher with 18 years experience, offering Maths tutoring, up to GCSE level, online or in the North West.

Methodology

I will provide free support to students outside of tutoring sessions, when necessary, using Email and Zoom.

Together with instructions and demonstrations, I like to use a range of resources, including screen sharing, puzzle sites, my own Kahoot quizzes, instructional videos, a writing tablet, and interactive maths software, while providing my complete support throughout. These tools make my lessons fun, stimulating, engaging and challenging, which achieves much better results.

I base my teaching on developing a quick rapport with students, through being easy going, talkative, engaging, supportive, understanding, passionate about my subject(s), pleasant, polite and humorous - in my opinion anyway! I also have interests such as music, sport, gaming, science, comedy and movies, which can help deliver teaching objectives, build connections and start conversations.

I have years of experience at being able to pitch lessons at the right level for each individual student, ensuring that work is both challenging and achievable.

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Matthew will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

I`m a qualified teacher with 18 years experience of teaching and tutoring Maths & Computer Science.

I've tutored from my home, at a tutoring company's premises, and online - both live and on-demand, in both Maths and Computer Science. As a consequence of the lock-down, I now also have experience of teaching online from home. I used Zoom to provide live one-to-one video lessons, as well as support and feedback sessions. I also provided on-demand teaching, using a Learning Management System (LMS) called Canvas, which enabled me to create, set, receive, and mark assignments, as well as make announcements, create and moderate chat rooms, and give students feedback and support when necessary, using various methods such as recorded video, live video, comments and messages.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £115
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £220

Details

My rates can vary depending on things like subject levels, goals, travel and the individual circumstances of the students and their parents or carers.

Perfect! My younger brother absolutely enjoy Matti's lessons, he's diagnosed adhd and autism so it's a bit hard for him to find the right tutor. It's the first time we try Superprof and I must say I'm so glad we found Matti in the right time! My brother finds his lessons fun, light hearted and helpful :)

Matthew's response

T is an excellent young man - pleasant, humorous, passionate, and keen to learn. He is a pleasure to teach, and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him.

Matthew is not only a great teacher, but also a great teacher trainer. He was my mentor during my time as a trainee teacher and even though that was over a decade ago, I still use the lessons and theories he passed on to me on a regular basis. His subject knowledge is excellent and his teaching style fits the subject perfectly. Dan Evans, Head of Computing at Tameside College.

Matthew is an absolute professional who prides himself on being able to successfully teach all ages and levels to a high standard. He has an excellent history of being able to teach pupils with varying abilities as well as complex behavioral, social and emotional difficulties and/or high achieving pupils. He takes such pride in all aspects of teaching and is an extremely likeable and pleasant teacher.

Mathew is a great teacher , I have been in his lessons whilst he is teaching. Great atmosphere, it really is. When I use to be a keyworker and I would bring my class into his lessons, they loved making apps and creating games from scratch, step by step instructions would be shown through the big board and all the children would engage in the activities.

Sam

Mathew is great at what he does, he’s very clued up and intellectual and has a very good teaching style that caters for everyone, would recommend!

Amy

I worked with Matthew for 4 years and in that time I came to recognise that he was not only entirely competent in his professional field but also nurturing, funny, caring, trustworthy and patient to a fault. He really cared about the pupils he taught and helped those with the lowest esteem to recognise their potential. I would recommend Matthew 100% to not only develop academic potential, but a well rounded pupil.

B
Bassline

A very approachable person, with perfect personality with a huge passion with what he does and he’s also very good at it! He taught me in school 5 years ago! Would highly recommend ️️️️️

I’ve worked with Matthew for over a decade, during this time he has consistently delivered outstanding lessons to pupils with a wide range academic abilities, ensuring they access the breadth of the curriculum and reach their potential.
