Meet our teachers

We put our student’s ambitions at the heart of everything we do.
It’s about helping them develop a love for learning.

How Matrix teachers are different


All Matrix teachers have teaching experience and hold degrees or doctorates in their field. Standard stuff here.

Great communicators

They're not just knowledgeable but are able to explain things clearly, even the difficult stuff. So you'll have more aha moments!

Teachers vs. Tutors

Unlike our competitors teachers and tutors have separate roles at Matrix. Teachers focus on teaching course content to their class. Tutors help students through one-to-one workshops.

High teaching standards

To ensure teachers meet our strict teaching standards they undergo over 50 hours of classroom training. Also, every teacher has a verified Working With Children Check.

New syllabus ready

Ongoing training and support with our academic heads and new resources ensures Matrix teachers are up-to-date with the new syllabus.

Approved by students

It doesn't make sense to have a teacher that just doesn't click with our students. That's why each term, we conduct anonymous questionnaires on our teachers.
