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.
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!
