Hello! My name is Matt and I’m an English teacher at an Outstanding Independent Day school in Reading. I’ve studied English and Italian to degree level at the University of Warwick, have done a PGCE and have achieved a Masters in Education. I have also marked for all the major exam boards. I studied French and Latin to A-Level and have taught them to A Level. I've taught a range of exam boards at GCSE and am currently teaching the new 1-9 courses for English Literature and Language.
I am passionate about English and Languages in general, having particularly enjoyed studying and teaching Shakespeare. I’ve lived in Italy for over a year and have travelled extensively. I believe I am very approachable and build strong relationships with the classes and pupils I teach.
I'm currently an English teacher at an Outstanding Independent Day School in Reading, teaching English to A-Level. I have previously taught French, Italian and Latin to A-Level. I have a Masters in Professional Studies in Educational Leadership. I have tutored everything from prep school Latin to degree level English Language.
My approach is tailored to suit the needs of my pupils. I'll find out what they want to achieve and then we will discuss between us how they can reach their goals. We'll come up with a range of strategies and choose the one that suits them best. I have done a lot of Making Good Progress (MGP) 1-1 tuition at my schools and have always had excellent feedback.
I have done 1-1 tuition in everything from Latin for Common Entrance to English language at degree level. I am very keen to teach more Latin.
I am happy to do anything from an hour a week to intense day long or week long courses during the holidays in preparation for GCSEs and A Levels
