Member since 2021 Mr Matthew R

I have spent the past decade teaching English at a number of state and independent secondary schools. I am passionate about empowering students to take control of their studies, and as part of my current teaching post, I am involved in several research projects aimed at developing a pedagogical approach that fosters independent learning. My goal is to inspire my students and tutees to develop a self-motivated love of learning. It’s a joy to watch young people grow into passionate English students who are driven to succeed.
