All of Matthew’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Matthew’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a PhD in history and a BA in philosophy, both from UCLA. I worked as a substitute teacher in elementary schools for several years in my twenties, including the Berkeley Unified School District, Pasadena Unified School District, and Los Angeles Unified School District. This included a number of long-term assignments (e.g. one month, four months) that required me to prepare several weeks' worth of curriculum at a time. I am well qualified to work individually with elementary school children, and I enjoy doing so!

SAT Math

I am an expert on all sections of the SAT, including the math. I have taught the SAT for several years, and have worked for a number of the elite test prep companies.

SAT Reading

I have taught SAT Reading for several years, including for some of the big test prep companies. I achieved a perfect score on the reading section of the GRE (the grad school version of the SAT), and am a professionally published author. So I know how to teach reading comprehension!

Study Skills

Having received my PhD from UCLA, I know something about time management and study skills! I have worked with many students over a number of years. Whether at the elementary, high school, or college level, my tutoring has frequently involved helping students to make better use of their time and to improve their study habits. Doing so aids them in every subject. A recent high school student of mine shifted his American history grade from C to A, strictly by applying my study skills recommendations.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
