« Matthew is doing a great job. His lessons are stimulating, structured and tailored to meet my sons needs. I can see the difference already in the way my son tackles his English homework. He feels more confident and has a widening range of knowledge and skills to draw on. His school must also be impressed as he has just been predicted an A* in his English GCSE! I would highly recommend Matthew as a first rate tutor. »

Matthew - Mile End - Ukcat

Methodology

I'm a graduate of Oxford and LSE with extensive tutoring experience, and have taught A-level politics at Ealing College. I now work for the Department for Education in Westminster, giving me valuable insight into the latest political developments.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Politics (A-level)
University entrance (specialising in Oxbridge entrance)

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Masters degree from LSE in Politics & Communication
BA from Oxford University in Politics, Philosophy & Economics
A-levels: Government & Politics - A, History - A, Philosophy & Theology - A, English Literature - A

- How much do you charge?

£35 per hour for A-level tuition, £40 per hour for university entrance tuition (includes help with personal statement and, if necessary, interview preparation).

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my house in Mile End, east London, and in the surrounding areas of Bow, Whitechapel, Aldgate, Hackney and Shoreditch. I also teach around my workplace in Westminster, including the surrounding areas of Pimlico, Belgravia, Mayfair and Victoria.

- When are you available?

I'm available on weekday evenings from around 6.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach A-level Government & Politics (all exam boards) and university entrance. I specialise in Oxbridge entrance, and can provide help with personal statements and conduct mock interviews to give you the best possible chance of showing your university of choice what you're capable of.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am willing to tutor over Skype and via email correspondence.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a friendly, enthusiastic person who greatly enjoys helping students realise their potential. I'm a graduate of Oxford and LSE with extensive tutoring experience. I achieved one of the top ten marks in the country at Politics A-level and one of the top five marks in the country at English GCSE, and I'm therefore well aware of what's required of students for examination success.

Super tutor

Matthew is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have four years of tutoring experience, and until last year I taught A-level Government & Politics at Ealing Independent College.

My teaching style is based on my experience of the Oxford tutorial system, a teaching method world-renowned for its effectiveness in achieving the very best results. A central tenet of this system is that the best way to learn is through discussion and dialogue between teacher and student. I integrate this into the structure of lessons, as well as using various exercises designed to help students gain a rounded understanding of their subject, whilst at the same time producing exactly the kind of answers that examiners are looking for.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an up-to-date CRB.

Matthew is doing a great job. His lessons are stimulating, structured and tailored to meet my sons needs. I can see the difference already in the way my son tackles his English homework. He feels more confident and has a widening range of knowledge and skills to draw on. His school must also be impressed as he has just been predicted an A* in his English GCSE! I would highly recommend Matthew as a first rate tutor.

I honestly only have positive things to say. The lessons are always stimulating and most importantly all the information is well explained. My AS exams have improved a huge amount since our lessons began. He has a wide range of politics knowledge, which is excellent as it allows for detailed answers for any questions I may have. He's also a really approachable guy and provides an atmosphere during the lessons in which questions and debates are welcomed which makes for stimulating work.

My son has gained more confidence in his essay writing since having tutoring with Matthew. I'm very pleased with Matthew's teaching approach.

S
Sarah

Even though I have high expectations for my work, Matthew pushed the standard of my work up to beyond what I could have imagined. His detailed notes ensured my essay structure was as effective and comprehensible as possible. He even stretched my understanding of the subject, recommending other philosophers and theories to enrich my essays. Matthew also answered every question I e-mailed him with incredible speed! I recommend his service without hesitation.
