Matthew has been tutoring Mathematics and Science courses at both IB and IGCSE level for nearly 4 years now. His qualifications include 6A*s and 3As in Maths, Sciences and languages and 42/45 in the IBDP, with 6s and 7s in HL Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.
Throughout his time being a tutor, he has not only helped students improve their grades by 1–2-mark bands, but also help them develop a genuine interest in the subject he teaches. His style of teaching revolves around explaining the concepts first and going over an example to enforce understanding and subsequently, they practice a blank past paper question to reinforce the knowledge. He also endeavours to teach by using unconventional methods, such as relating the concept to real-life examples, which allows for better understanding of the topic taught.
He believes that every student has the potential to do well in the subjects, irrespective of their background, as long as they have the right guidance and the required work ethic and he hopes to instil it into them when he tutors them.
