“Growing up with a Spanish speaking mother, James decided that although he didn’t have lessons at school, he wanted to do an extra GCSE in Spanish At the start of year 10, he didn’t really speak with any confidence and his vocabulary and grip of the grammar was a long way behind what is needed to pass GCSE. Matthew systematically brought him up to speed in these areas and he was very happy to be awarded an 8 at his GCSE last month.”

“Matthew is a great tutor. While I was doing my International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), I was really struggling to meet the high requirements from our Maths teachers. I especially had large gaps in Algebra, which Matthew helped me fill in. Once that was fixed, I went from strength to strength. Matthew helped me advance from a predicted grade of 3 to an actual grade of 6 in Maths (7 is the highest), in just 5 months. I have got into Bath University. Overall, I am very thankful to Matthew for all the time and effort he put into tutoring me.”
“I write to confirm that Matthew tutored my daughter in GCSE French. She achieved a grade A*. He was thorough in his preparation. His subject knowledge was good and he was always very reliable in terms of attendance and punctuality.”
MRS Lynch (Loreto School Headmistress)
“I was searching for a Spanish tutor for my daughter who was predicted an E grade at GCSE and found Matthew’s details on a website. From the very beginning Matthew was professional and helpful and willing to go the extra mile (which was very helpful as my daughter was not keen on the subject at all but needed an improved grade). With Matthew’s help, my daughter gained a B grade which is more than we had hoped for! Matthew is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him.
“Matthew gave my son just 3 one to one Chess coaching sessions in the run up to the National Primary School Chess Championships. He even set homework and looked at my son’s games online between sessions. Matthew picked up on how to strengthen the game very quickly and taught some very effective moves. My son went on to do extremely well and moved up a board and beat Haberdashers school for the first time, his nemesis. He said that Matthew had given him confidence and had understood how to improve his game. Matthew’s Chess coaching is second to none.”
