My experience tutoring is primarily in GCSE and A-level physical sciences and mathematics. I have up to date knowledge of current science and mathematics curricula expertise in planning and delivering courses for individuals and small groups and personally developed resources which are routinely updated and adapted to offer a bespoke experience.
I ensure that during contact time focus is placed on firmly on those areas where students most need support. Through assessment and homework I will identify areas of common or individual misconceptions around key ideas ensuring that you receive not only an experience that will ensure that you achieve academically but have a fundamental understanding of the key concepts.
My students are encouraged and directed to use both my own and carefully curated outside resources to help in their academic development with exercises set appropriately depending on the frequency of lessons.
I am a fully qualified teacher (qualified 2015) with 1st class Physics hons degree from University of Warwick, following this I worked for a year in research working in the astronomy and astrophysics department of the University of Warwick. My own A levels are in mathematics, physics and further mathematics
I have worked in several schools across the country supporting students from a range of backgrounds to make expected progress or above in science and mathematics. Prior to teaching I worked with students as a private tutor in the Newcastle and North-East area.
Rate of £21 per hour represent approx 30 mins planning and resourcing and 1 hour marking and written feedback from myself in addition to the 1 hour of direct contact time you receive. If you wish for these services to be provided at an increased rate without an increase in contact time would be negotiable on a case by case basis.
Any lessons cancelled less than 24 hours in advance would be charged at full rate.

Through my experience working with students I have developed the ability to work well with both cooperative and uncooperative groups, I have developed good time management and planning skills, the ability to work with and manage large groups of people. During my time as a teacher the students under my care have generally made good progress in line with their expected development, my A-level teaching was reported by an experienced Ofstead inspector as of ‘good quality’ during a school inspection.
During my work in administration I developed the ability to quickly learn how to use new software for a range of purposes including more managing accounts and tracking payments. During my time working ate Ravensworth professional I was responsible for implementing a new system for the management of payments of rent for several hundred tenants, accounting for some £16,000 per month.
During my research I developed relevant professional skills including coding and academic writing, as well as continuing to use and develop my mathematical abilities.
Perfect! Matthew was excellent for my son, he was able to make the material so much more accessible to him and I think we're now beginning to turn the corner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matthew to others and we will be signing up for some more tuition once I know the academic programme at his school in these uncertain times.
