« Matthew was recommended to me by a friend after he helped with their son's Higher maths. I'm so glad we went with him as he immediately put my son at ease with his calm demeanour and engaging teaching style. We have tried other tutors in the past unsuccessfully so it was great to finally find a good one! »

Professional Maths Tutor with BSc Mathematics (1st class) from the University of Aberdeen and MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems from University of Edinburgh.

Methodology

Every student is an individual and deserves to be treated as such. There is no one size fits all approach that works for everyone so I make sure to really understand how all my students think in order to optimise their learning.

During lessons I go as fast or as slow as needed. I can start from the basics and build up or get straight into more advanced concepts. Practice questions are extremely important and lessons usually consist of us working careful through a question set on a particular topic. It is very important to me that my tutees feel comfortable and their confidence continues to rise with each lesson.

I believe that everyone deserves the best chance at school. It does not matter to me if you are a straight A student looking for some insurance, or if you are a bottom set student who has always struggled with maths. All I ask from my tutees is a willingness to learn.

Experience

I have over 8 years of tutoring experience and have tutored 100+ pupils of varying mathematical ability, which has given me a great insight into the common problems pupils have. The majority of my lessons happen face to face but over the last few years, especially in 2020, I have had a lot of requests for online lessons.

I cover the main syllabuses taught in Scotland and England. I also have experience tutoring international curriculum such as American K-12 and South African Matriculation. Here is a list of the levels I have most experience with:

National 5
Higher
Advanced Higher
GCSE
AS and A Level Maths and Further Maths (AQA, Edexcel etc)
IB SL and HL, Applications and Interpretation or Analysis and Approaches

A large number of my tutees were found through word-of-mouth from former tutees pleased with their results.

Biography Born in the north-east of Scotland, currently working full-time as a mathematics tutor and video creator.

I have a passion for all things maths related and love helping people reach their full academic potential.

In my spare time I enjoy exercising physically in the gym and playing sport, as well as mentally by playing sudoku and scrabble.

Testimonial 1
Fiona, Scottish Higher Mathematics

Matthew has been an absolute breath of fresh air for my daughter. She has had many ‘eureka’ moments where Matthew’s explanations have helped her with areas she was struggling with. Matthew takes his time and has a patient, caring attitude. He is methodical in his teaching methods which worked really well for my daughter. Matthew always asked her what she wanted help with rather than pushing on before she was ready. My daughter is on track for an A at Higher thanks to Matthew and is now taking advanced higher maths as her confidence has grown so much. We cannot thank Matthew enough!!

Lesley Mcgregor, Scottish National 5 Mathematics

Matt has been outstanding in being able to get my 15 year old son to understand and enjoy Maths. He has been receiving a weekly Maths lesson via web-link (zoom) with Matt throughout the whole of 4th year. Having tried a previous tutor my son was so reluctant to try and new one. Matt put him at ease instantly and has been able to do the impossible - engage my son with mathematics! Don't hesitate to book him if he's free, you won’t regret it. Thanks for all your hard work Matt - Lesley

Matt has been an absolutely amazing help to my daughter with her National 5 maths. He is extremely patient and easy to speak to. Maths was my daughter's least favourite subject prior to Matt's tuition but now feels confident enough to do higher maths with Matt's continued help! Go with Matt if you need maths help, you will be glad you did!
