My name is Matt, a licensed educator with nearly 20 years of experience teaching both Spanish
, who has been teaching both languages for the last several years at Georgetown Prep. After having graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA, where I majored in Spanish and Sociology
and minored in Latin
American Studies, I began my professional language
teaching career in 1995. For many years, I also alternated spending my summers either toward my Master's degree in Spanish from Middlebury College, which offers one of the most renowned language programs in the nation, and teaching ESL
to international students studying at the university level. During the last decade, I have also had the pleasure of leading students on trips and exchanges in Spain, Ecuador, Argentina, Chile, and El Salvador. When I'm not teaching, you can find me exploring the neighborhood with my four year-old Havanese, cheering on the Red Sox from Spring Training to the World Series, or taking road trips with friends all up and down the East Coast.
My teaching style is clear and energetic, and I am confident in my ability to push students to achieve great things, while offering a lot of support along the way. Furthermore, my students describe me as easy to relate to, since outside of class we talk about everything from sports to music
to life itself. Nevertheless, while students recognize that I am easy to talk to, I also make it clear my objective is to help my students succeed academically, to set them up for long-term success in life.
