Murray Morrison (founder of Tassomai) has over fifteen years’ experience in the field of teaching, and has worked as a private tutor since 2001. He has worked with students all over the world and has written on revision, exam technique and education matters for the Daily Telegraph.
Murray developed his philosophy of learning through experience at the highest levels of academic, sporting and musical excellence. Murray studied both engineering and music at university and was awarded a postgraduate performance scholarship to Trinity College of Music, after which time he performed with some of the best jazz orchestras in Europe. Murray represented Great Britain in fencing and, as captain of Scotland in 2010, won team bronze Commonwealth medal. His career as an international fencing referee culminated in his participation at the London 2012 Olympics Games.
Despite his engineering background and specialisation in teaching maths and science, it is Murray’s experience in the fields of music and performance sport that has informed his methods: he has helped many hundreds of students to increase their academic standards by introducing rigourous methods of continuous assessment, feedback, practice and self-motivation. He has spent the past few years developing and testing Tassomai as a means to bring his highly successful methodology for learning and revising to many more students.
