This is how 2 referees rated Mathew:
My name is Mathew and I am a fully qualified primary school teacher, completing my PGCE at Portsmouth University. I am a SPECIALIST MATHS TUTOR, hard-working professional and have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with those around me. Outside of teaching and tutoring, I have a strong interest in sports (most notably football, cricket and rugby).
With both of my parents as teachers, as well as an uncle who is a headmaster, I have always been in a learning environment. I have worked with children aged 4-14, as well as teaching maths to adults up to Key Stage 3 level. Having previously qualified as an accountant, my subject knowledge in maths helps me to effectively break down tricky mathematical concepts, providing my children with a step-to-step guide to solving all related questions.
My tutoring style is based on providing real life scenarios and situations as this inspires children the most. This is particularly helpful in maths, as it adds more context to the numbers. I carefully guide my children through their work, allowing them to discover for themselves as this helps them to remember and recall their knowledge in the future. I carefully and meticulously choose appropriate tasks at the right pitch for my children, in order to best challenge them and raise their ability. I am a patient tutor and can provide a number of different strategies to solve the same problem. By being able to pre-empt misconceptions, I can address these barriers before they occur.
