Matt is a very friendly and patient tutor. He was able to asses my needs clearly and focus on the gaps I needed to work on which were grammar and report writing. This resulted in me managing to obtain the necessary IELTS grades needed – for university visa entry requirement to the UK. In fact, I achieved higher grades than I actually needed which has increased my confidence generally. I would recommend him to you
