I am a passionate primary school mathematics tutor and U.S. admission prep tutor for the past five years. Before moving to the U.K. to pursue my PhD programme in Education, I was a mathematics teacher in New York City. I have taught courses on admission exams that include the math portion of the SAT, GRE, GMAT, and ACT. I love teaching mathematics and preparing pupils for taking U.S. admission exam to get into their dream university. It pleases me to see the enjoy pupils face when they start improving and understanding the U.S admission type questions and primary school mathematics content for those currently in primary school.
My hobbies include skiing, ice skating, kayaking, and travelling. Also, I am very passionate about my researcher in the teaching and learning of mathematics. My goal is to tutor you about the content and make a connection that will bring enjoyment to learning the topic.
U.S. Admission Test-Prep:
I specialise in tutoring pupils toward admission exams for entry to undergraduate and graduate programs in the United States. As an Ivy League graduate myself, I remember the long hours of studying for the exam and how stressful it can be at times. The way I approach tutoring U.S test-admission exam is through a fun and effective test-taking approach to help pupils answer questions a sufficient amount of time. To make sure we are a good fit, I do offer 30 minutes free lesson for a chat and greet to determine our expectation for the tutoring session. Below is a list of U.S admission test-prep that I have taught and tutor for the past five years:
SAT, GRE, GMAT, and ACT
Primary School Mathematics:
I am an expert in tutoring primary school mathematics content that includes topics in key stages 1 and 2 of the English National Curriculum.
I have taught GCSE mathematics topics (Number, Algebra, Ratio, proportion and rates of change, Geometry and measures, probability and statistics) at the high school level in New York City.
My expertise includes content in primary school mathematics, GCSE Mathematics and U.S admission test.
Excellent Tutor, Matthew really is friendly and shows the best way to approach the questions. Also happy to go over time to make sure that there is a decent lesson! Fantastic!
Matthew was friendly and knowledgeable, however I was expecting more structure to the session to provide me with strategies I could leverage when approaching Quant questions / guidance on how I should be structuring my studies. We launched straight into working through a selection of specific algebra problems without really understanding the objective of the session. I found it difficult to follow at times as I like to write out problems as I work through them.
Mathew really helped me understand how to tackle many different types of questions. His practical approach makes everything much clearer and he is able to simply complex problems easily.
Matthew is a great tutor! He helped me to prepare effectively for the GRE exam. He has good knowledge on both quantitative and verbal section and gave me good support as well as good material to work on.
Very interactive, not to just focused on the job. I was able to ask questions. In general, he has a wonderful personality. I just booked more lessons.
Matthew helped me with the mathematical part of the GMAT. He was a very good tutor in helping me gain a good understanding of what was needed to be done. He also has a large range of practise questions with answers which was a great help for doing individual work. Furthermore he provided me with a booklet he made himself with all the the formulas one would need for the GMAT which was a great help when working on my own in understanding the maths. Would highly recommend.
