Hello there,

My name is Matthew. I am currently a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis, and have just finished my sixth year of classroom teaching. I taught high school English (grades 11-12) for four years, as well as two years of 9th grade civics, and two years of drama.

I graduated from the University of San Francisco in 2007 with a B.A. in English (Writing Emphasis). I also studied Japanese Language and Literature, and have much experience with Japanese writing.

I have also taken Elementary Education classes, with an emphasis on K-3rd grade. While in college, I worked part-time at a local daycare, so I have experience with that demographic as well.

My Teach For America training has infused me with many tested strategies for helping a student to progress in reading and writing within a short time period. This year, the reading levels of my juniors and seniors grew an average of 1.2 years in four months. Their writing has also exponentially improved, by using strategies from the 6+1 Writing Traits Book and using Advanced Placement Literature standards of writing. I feel that my teaching style has garnered concrete results, while also allowing students to learn in a fun, laid-back environment. I am well-versed in ACT test prep, especially the English and reading sections, as I have taught test prep the past two years at my placement school.
