This is how 2 referees rated Matthew:
Experienced tutor for A-level and Degree Chemistry. Throughout my academic and research career I have developed a passion for chemistry and teaching and have been extensively involved in the tutoring and mentoring of students across a range of levels over many years. I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Bristol in addition to a 1st Class Masters Degree in Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh. I am currently employed as a Senior Research Scientist in the North East with responsibilities including the training and mentoring of chemistry undergraduate students from a range of Universities.
My passion for teaching started during my PhD where I taught practical and theoretical chemistry to numerous undergraduates, with particular focus on 1st year students struggling with key concepts to guide them through exams. Since then, I have continued to teach and mentor chemistry across a range of levels with particular focus on helping A-Level chemistry students struggling to get the grips with key concepts.
I adopt a systematic and logical approach to teaching using 'real-life' examples and models where ever possible to aid the students understanding and visualisation of the problems. This approach not only assists their immediate understanding of the subject, but come exam time, also helps them to identify the correct answer to the problems in front of them. I am available most evenings for tuition, so please feel free to contact me for more information or a quick chat.
