Last week, Gateway Qualifications announced the winner of the inaugural Access to Higher Education Tutor of the Year Awards 2020. We are delighted to have received tutor nominations for our centres and so incredibly proud of our tutors for the way they continue to inspire so many people in Essex to reach their learning goals.
Gateway Qualifications has extended a special congratulations to Matthew Harrington-Keaton, ACL Essex Access to HE tutor on his nominations.
“Competition was extremely high and we received some truly heart-warming, awe inspiring and inspirational comments from Access to HE students.”Gateway Qualifications
‘Matt teaches us in a way that encourages discussions from differing viewpoints and having these in-depth discussions help retain the information being relayed. The structure of his lessons are also helpful and the use of a variety of teaching methods helps engage us in what we are learning. Overall a very good tutor that makes lessons fun whilst still being intellectually stimulating.’Emily, ACL Essex Access to HE Learner – 2020
‘It is lovely to find out that Matthew was nominated by our Access to HE learners and whilst he may not have won the accolade from Gateway, he has won in my eyes!’Emma Hodgkinson, Curriculum Lead at ACL Essex
During the nomination process, all students were asked to advise in 3 words what their tutor meant to them. Gateway has produced a word cloud (please see the website article) which includes all the words used to describe their tutors.
Congratulations to Matthew and the other nominees, you have such an inspiring positive impact on people’s lives.
