Monthly lessons and Support
I only offer tuition on a regular, monthly basis. I charge £170 per calendar month, which covers four one-hour lessons, additional support (students can always ask me questions outside their regular lesson time at pretty much any time of day or night) and full access to my website which includes complete sets of past exam papers, mark schemes and examiners' reports as well as other practice materials. In addition, I’m very happy to talk to parents about progress and answer any questions they might have.
I also provide tuition on an ad hoc basis if my schedule allows. For example, during the summer I work with undergraduates who need to resit an exam. I charge £45 per hour for this.
I only accept payments made online. Fees are due on the first of each month for that month and should be transferred to: Profmatt Ltd, Barclays Bank, 20-98-98, 73245039. I do not accept cash or cheques.
Private tuition is my full-time employment and I have substantial experience of working with students and helping them achieve the grades necessary to get into the university of their choice. I am not someone who tutors for a bit of extra cash but without any real commitment or experience. I have tutored nearly 300 students in Harrogate: that’s over 7,000 hours of teaching in the last nine years.
My skill lies in having a detailed understanding of examinations: the specifications, the exam papers and the marking process and an ability to make the mathematics simple and accessible to my students. I really want my students to succeed and do everything I can to help them achieve their goals.
