I'm Matthew and I provide tuition and ongoing tutorial support in all of the modules for A-level Mathematics (including the A-level Statistics course taught at St Aidan’s/St John Fisher’s, as well as Further Mathematics, STEP and Oxbridge).

My focus is on achieving high grades through understanding the material. (70% of my students achieved an A or an A* in the 2013 exams.) I tailor my approach depending on individual needs and interests and I believe in making the mathematics as simple and enjoyable as possible.

However, it is not enough simply to do well at A level, students need to be given the tools to succeed at university. To that end I take a very full interest in their education generally. As one student recently put it, I am "so much more than just a maths tutor". For example I give guidance and support with university entrance, including the UCAS personal statement and Oxbridge applications and interviews.

Please read the recommendations of my teaching from students. You can also find answers to frequently asked questions and information about my fees.

I only teach from my home in central Harrogate, near the railway station (click here for a map). Some students walk from school straight to my house; others take the train or drive from Thirsk, Knaresborough, Wetherby, Ripon, York and Tadcaster. One student even comes from Birmingham!
