My name is Matthew R. and I hold a PhD in Comparative Literature from Emory University. I am qualified to tutor in several areas, including: AP English, AP Language Arts, any level of high school literature, ACT English/Reading/Writing test prep, and SAT Verbal test prep.
For the past five years, I have tutored high school students throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area, and for the past seven years I have taught composition and literature at Emory University. Prior to my work in the Atlanta area, I coached debate at several prominent Chicago public schools. My subject expertise and extensive teaching and tutoring experience have given me the opportunity to work with several different students, representing many different skill sets.
As your tutor, I will begin our work by including diagnostic exercises that train you to become conscious of your thinking, so that you learn not just how to succeed, but how success is possible. From these initial sessions, I develop individualized curriculum in order to best match the needs and learning styles of each student.
In addition to my teaching experience, I am an experienced and published writer and an active member of Atlanta's literary community.
Thank you for your interest in my services!
