Student Testimonials

Joining online tutoring with Mat in my final year of school was one of the best decisions I made in Year 12. Originally, I was a little apprehensive joining online tutoring through Skype, however the flexibility and comfort of tutoring in your own home (especially in my pyjamas) proved to be more beneficial than any other tutorials I had and thanks to him, I scored myself a Band 5 in English Advanced. Mat’s passion and love for English is contagious and my attitude towards literature completely changed because of him. Definitely recommend!


Riverside Girls High, HSC 2017

Mat was a phenomenal tutor who helped me during my HSC in 2011. He has a wealth of knowledge and genuinely cares about the students he teaches. The passion, energy, and insights he brought to each lesson has shaped the way I write and think about English as a subject and language. Even whilst studying engineering at university, I have found that his lessons have continued to benefit me throughout the years. I would highly recommend him to any student who wishes to write well for the HSC and beyond.

Hi Mat, it’s Abhi. I just wanted to let you know that I got a 92 for English! I also got a 98.55 atar, which I’m so over the moon about. Anyway, thank you so much for all the help, advice and guidance that you’ve given me over the last few months. As well as all the essays you’ve marked, emails and discussions! I couldn’t have done it without all of those things.


HSC 2014

About Mathew

He has four kids and is married to Debbie who works from home as a web designer. (Hence this awesome website!) In his spare time Mat enjoys playing golf, going to the gym, reading, writing short stories – he occasionally appears in feature films, on TV or in print advertisements. He also enjoys editing copy written by his well-meaning wife… (how did I do?)
