About Matt

My dedication to student success is unparalleled; I cannot rest unless I am comfortable with their progress on a daily basis. I have worked with students of all ages, from kindergarten to 12th grade, and am able to relate to all children in order to help them succeed academically. Through my Master's studies and my short-term position as a Reading Specialist, I have extensive experience in diagnosing, assessing, and remedying reading difficulties using Fountas and Pinnell's systematic approaches, and have used these programs in combination with self-developed lessons to successfully increase K-2 students' reading levels. I also have a great understanding of the Common Core Standards, and can create individualized lessons that will increase students' familiarity with Common Core content, and be more prepared for state exams. My enthusiasm for teaching and learning makes all subjects come alive, and thoroughly engages my students!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Bachelor's in Elementary Education as well as a Master's in Literacy Education (Birth through 6th grade) from SUNY New Paltz. I have worked as a teacher in all grades K-12, most recently and extensively as an Elementary Reading Specialist, working with students whose reading abilities were deemed below grade level by performance on state assessments as well as benchmark performance exams. I have also worked in a leave replacement Math specialist position, similar to the Reading specialist position in which I worked with students who were struggling with grade-level (or previous grade-level) material. My innate ability to assess a student's strengths and weaknesses on the fly, coupled with my ability to relate material to individual interests, always culminates in an enriching learning experience, for my students as well as myself.
