Summary

PRIMARY SCHOOL | HIGH SCHOOL | TAFE / UNIVERSITY (ALL AGES)

I have a deep passion for making real differences in the lives of my students and their learning journey through laser-focused instruction, my watchful eye and customised expertise to benefit students directly and witness their sparks of comprehension; equipping them with critical study skills to become independent lovers of learning.

I've always been a dedicated learner and was so influenced by those truly inspiring teachers and mentors through school and university that I have been driven to use all my valuable experience and wisdom to more deeply benefit those in our community and help realise their potential. I did this by taking up the teaching mantle and becoming the founder of StarSeed Tutoring.

Unlike most tutors, I am currently dedicated as a full-time "all-purpose" tutor, academic coach, educational consultant, and career & industry mentor. I have been involved with tutoring and mentoring programs intermittently for 6 years in various settings – tutoring small and large groups in peer-assisted study sessions (PASS) at university, private individual tutoring, and teaching in home settings.

A great find - Matt is such a good tutor28 April 2021

"We have been working with Matt since the start of Term 1, 2021. We were looking for someone to assist our son in year 9 with his Maths in particular but also just an overall helping hand. Matt is so relaxed and easy going yet he knows exactly what our son needs with each lesson. Our son feels comfortable and can work through anything with Mattâ??s help. His teachings are relevant to the work being taught at school so our son isnâ??t overwhelmed with information that is not of value. Overall Matt is great and we are certainly glad to have found him and look forward to continuing our sons school journey with him. "
