About Matt

Experienced, engaging, hard-working and committed to you!

Background: Matt studied Modern Languages at Cambridge, and has become one of the UK's most sought-after language tutors. He has taught languages, sport, and drama in Britain and Latin America and has also worked extensively in Theatre in Education. Many of his GCSE students carry on to A-Level because of their new-found skills and love of the subject, and 100% of his A Level tutees have got into their first choice universities, including Oxbridge. He has worked as a journalist in Mexico and London, as well as in radio in Argentina, Cambridge and London. He is also a published author, recently releasing an exam guide for GCSE Spanish students available on Amazon (German edition to follow)! He now works as an actor, writer and director in London.

Teaching Approach: Matt believes that every student is unique and should be treated as such, with the lessons structured according to the individual’s needs and goals. He likes to establish a good rapport and to create a different environment to school, in which one can learn with enjoyment, and without fear of mistakes.

Improving confidence as well as ability

Written by Alex Clayton B
Just a few weeks in with Matt tutoring my daughter it was obvious that she was gaining fluency in her oral/listening and therefore conversational skills. Additionally, later on, Matt was good at zoning in on areas of perceived weakness in grammar/written ability to give her a well-rounded, overall improvement. That's the important stuff but the bonus with Matt is his genial and entertaining approach making the lessons relaxed and enjoyable. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt as a Spanish tutor at any level.

Matt lim

Written by Vittorio M
Matt lim was an amazing tutor for various different reasons. Firstly, he was always on time which I feel is an essential thing to be a good teacher. He would also make his lessons entertaining so it wouldn't feel like the hour or two would drag on. I also feel like Matt is an amazing tutor because unlike some if I hadn't understood something, he would carry on explaining it to me, finding different ways to make sure I got there in the end even if he had to say it 20 different times.
Subject:
Spanish
Outcome:
A in Spanish
