GCSE/A-Level Science Specialist

By day, I'm a stem cell scientist at the Cell & Gene Therapy Catapult; by evening, an enthusiastic tutor! I hold a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry from UCL and recently graduated top of my cohort in an MSc in Cell Therapy from KCL. I am passionate about science and the public understanding of science but also have keen interests beyond my academic qualifications; I am the director of a theatre company and was heavily involved with theatre during my time at UCL. I have recently performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and directed a show at a West End theatre: as an accomplished actor and director I am comfortable in communicating with a wide range of people. I have taught both in London and Mumbai across a range of subjects in very different environments and pride myself on being able to empathise with a learner and tailor my teaching style. I currently tutor for a number of children in North London.

Tutoring Experience (250 hours taught)

A-Level: Over a year's experience tutoring A-level Biology to a year 13 student with SEN. Together we were able to improve his performance by two grades and he achieved a place at University in Bristol! GCSE: A wealth of experience tutoring a number of students across all three sciences, most recently my two year 11 students achieved grades between 7 and 9 in all sciences. I also have experience working with small groups at a Saturday school in Mile End teaching Sciences, English and Mathematics. Away from tutoring I have always had a passion for teaching. I spent six months in Dharavi, Mumbai where I taught English as a foreign language to small classes alongside establishing two drama workshop courses for the NGO Reality Gives. At school I ran a bridge society, teaching younger students to play the game. Through all of this experience I have honed my ability to understand a student's learning style and adapt my teaching appropriately - allowing me to empower my tutees.

Matt has been tutoring my boys (in year 10 and 11) for GSCE science for 6 months now and he has really inspired the boys and they are dong so well in their classes now at school as a result of his lessons and general support. He is reliable punctual and polite and also very flexible if we need to make changes to our schedule. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Matt has worked with our son for the past year, covering A level Biology. He has been, without fail, professional, pro-active and organised. He built a good rapport with his student, motivating him and giving him confidence to tackle the new curriculum with energy and positivity. He has worked both on securing the knowledge and developing the skills required to successfully tackle the three papers. He has given our son and us constructive feedback and helped us understand how best to support our son.
