Dr Matt Lockyear

I have been head of physics at a respected private Exeter college for over ten years, and an educational consultant creating physics courses to train teachers in collaboration with the University of Plymouth. I am also Physics Lead on the National Advisory Board for Future Teaching Scholars (a new teacher training route) at the Educational Development Trust. I was a lecturer in photonics at Exeter University, and have over 15 years experience in scientific research, working closely with collaborators at Cambridge and Oxford, producing over 40 publications and patents. I obtained my PGCE and qualified teacher status with secondary teaching experience in various state schools, including invaluable experience with a range of special educational needs. I have expert knowledge of the subjects offered to senior research level, and of the current GCSE and A level syllabus for all examining boards and I am at ease teaching from GCSE to postgraduate level.

Awesome tutor! Knows the in and outs of A levels and very patient. Also very skilled at explaining difficult concepts making them easier to digest for a stressed A level student. He is unmatched by any teacher I’ve had in 18 years of private education and I would highly recommend him. Convenient location and comfortable atmosphere.

Fabulous tutor who pitches work at the right level to inspire and extend. My daughter is phobic about telephones and video and often really struggles to speak …. But Matt has, from day 1 put her at ease and she feels confident speaking and working over video with him!!!
I don’t know how he does it (possibly his singing while she’s thinking) but it really works.

Matt was a pleasure to work with. He boosted my confidence no end and was able to fill in the gaps in my knowledge and understanding helping me to pull my As grades out from the gutter and achieve my potential at A2. Thank you so much Matt, If I have any problems with my university studies you’ll be my first point of call
