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

Hi, my name's Matt. I've been working as a private tutor for over five years now, from GCSE to University-level, including Oxbridge interviews. I tailor my teaching style according to the interests and needs of each student, and I believe rapport is the key to being a successful tutor.

I specialise in Spanish and German, having studied both at a high-level at University, and I now work in show-business as an actor, writer and director.

Improving confidence as well as ability

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.

Great tutor.

Matt provides a large variety of tasks and exercises in all areas of the language that not only improve you spanish but also maintain your interest. His and ability to teach Spanish Grammar as well as his knowledge of Hispanic Literature was fantastic. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone studying A-level Spanish.

Matt lim

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.
