Just a few of our teachers in Lighthorne

Mr Matthew G

I have been tutoring students for four years, following a 20-year career as a teacher. I majored in maths during my teaching degree, where I achieved a first class with honours B.Ed. My knowledge of maths is excellent and has allowed me to tutor many students, ranging from seven year-olds to pupils studying for A-levels. I have extensive knowledge of all exam boards. Having taught maths extensively in many year groups, my depth of knowledge of the whole maths curriculum means that I am able to ensure students have no gaps in their learning, which is key to building confidence. I also ensure that once a subject is learnt it is not forgotten. This is achieved by revisiting topics previously learnt, and if appropriate, the setting of individually tailored homework. I target my teaching to the individual needs of each student and ensure that the students only attempt work they have the prerequisite skills to perform. This guarantees success and builds confidence.
