I am demonstrably very good at tutoring in English, especially one to one. By teaching thinking and learning skills alongside the language understanding, I have significantly improved the results of my tutees, and I can do the same for your teenager.

We start from very first principles and work our way up, making connections and observations that should help drive not just your child’s English GCSE result, but their language and thinking, providing a benefit they can carry into adulthood.

If you would like to know more about how I can help your child get their best possible grade in English GCSEs, then please feel free to contact me to discuss.


We feel extremely privileged to have found Mat, he has been teaching our 14 year old son Henry English for the past 2 years, the progress Henry has made in this time has been incredible.

Always keen to attend Mat’s lessons, Henry has been taught thinking skills, mind maps and other learning strategies which he is now able to apply in his other subjects at school.

Thank you Mat for all you have done for Henry and all you are continuing to do, we wish we had found you years ago!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you, you’re just great!!
