My name is Matthew and my tutoring is exceptionally good. I have been playing Chess since 1989 and in fact won a handicap tournament at Harrow Chess Club in 2015. I also drew against a grandmaster. I tutor face to face or online.
I tutor pupils from many good schools too, including UCS, Highgate, Francis Holland, North London Collegiate and Wimbledon High School.
I have been giving one to one lessons at the pupil's home for the last eighteen years with big improvements in the vast majority of my students' games.
My main goal is to explain the very basics, what the objective of a Chess game is and how to try and get there. I also analyse my students' games and teach them how to write their moves down eventually, which will also enable them to show me games they have played with their friends or family.
I also teach the basic moves, special moves, checkmates, tactics and basic endgames. I firmly believe this approach has great success.

(a) I have it in writing from you that you wanted someone who has taught A Level French before and the level of fluency was never even discussed being a grammar and essay writing tutoring job that you requested
(b) My level of French fluency is more than enough to teach French A Level so only other things could be relevant.
(c) Good technical grammar implies the student doesn't necessarily need to know it when nothing could be further from the truth if they want to get a good grade in real terms. It was your request and rightly so for me to work on the grammar because it turned out to be a huge problem not allowing any time in the first lesson to do conversational French and it would have had too many mistakes, so very much a case of learning to walk before you run.
