University student giving maths, physics and chemistry lectures to pre-university pupils in Mid Lothian, Edinburgh

Methodology

I take a very practical approach to teaching, and aim to address areas of difficulty with the pupil before testing their knowledge on the subject with a series of questions to stretch their ability. This can include past papers to acclimatise the student to the type of questions they will face. Teaching would consist of various methods of teaching depending on the learning style of the pupil, ranging from visual aids to verbal explanations of the theory.

Experience

During my A-levels I taught a class full of GCSE students chemistry for a term. The entire class went on to pass their exam, achieving at least their target grade, though some achieved higher. Furthermore, I took part in several one on one tutoring sessions with a student in maths and physics, who went on to achieve much higher than targeted by her instructors at the time.

Matthew has demonstrated to me in the few months that I have known him that he is both a incredibly organised and motivated individual. Whenever he is set a piece of work or a task to complete he will complete it to a very high standard in a very timely manner.

Matthew is a very kind and friendly person, who is always ready to listen. I have no doubts that he would be a great tutor.

Matthew tutored me in Chemistry for GCSE as well as been a supportive friend. He uses clear and concise language and is fun in his teaching style. He tailors everything to YOU and has no issue going over things again and again and again and again and again and again..... (like he did for me!)

Matthew is an exceptionally talented and intelligent young man. He is a kind, caring and honest person who gives his all in everything he sets his mind to.
Matthew sets high standards and has the ability to work well as part of a group or as an individual, standing up for he believes is right and acting with integrity at all times. A highly motivated person with an outstanding attitude and moral purpose. I highly recommend him.
