About Matthew

I am a certified Economics teacher in the state of Arizona. I have taught US Government, Economics and US History at the high school level and can develop a lesson/learning plan to fit your needs.

I have experience tutoring and feel very comfortable with the material from these courses: ECN 211 (Principles of Macroeconomics), ECN 212 (Principles of Microeconomics), ECN 306 (Survey of International Economics), ECN 438 (International Monetary Economics), ECN 445 (Environmental Economics) and POS210 (Political Ideologies) but I am comfortable tutoring many economics or political science subjects. I am also comfortable tutoring students in AP Economics at the high school level.

At this time I will not be working with Intermediate Micro/Macroeconomics (I would recommend a math tutor for these subjects as the challenge is not in the economic principles for most students) or econometrics/regression analysis courses. I simply cannot provide a good fit with the resources and time I have available and would rather save you the time in your search.

I also worked for Apple for 6 years delivering training sessions and group workshops on subjects from Intro to Mac to advanced music production, video editing and digital photography. I work with small businesses to select and deploy new technology solutions, including staff training on QuickBooks and Mac/PC office suites. If you are looking to learn to use a Mac, or thinking about switching your business technology, I can help. For those looking to replace the discontinued One to One training, feel free to contact me.

As a tutor/teacher, my goal is to get to know how you learn and build lessons and examples that explain complex subjects in terms you already understand.

Please note: listed availability reflects my general tutoring availability. Please contact me for specific upcoming availability.

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.

Economics

I have covered ECN211, ECN212, ECN438 and ECN445 recently, and I can work to meet your needs, time and budget. I have taken and tutored these courses under different professors, and will be able to help students struggling to grasp the material and explain Economics in simple terms.

Government & Politics

I can explain difficult political science content in simple language to help prepare you for your upcoming exams. I have taken many political science courses while at ASU. Most recently, I have taught U.S./AZ Government at the high school level and have stayed familiar with the content and standards.

Macintosh

I have 10 years experience with the Mac OS and 5+ years experience with iOS training and deployment. As a former Apple employee, I have delivered hundreds of personal training sessions as well as group training. I have also worked with AppleCare, offering troubleshooting and technical how-to information. I am also familiar with the full range of Apple products and how to effectively implement learning tools and materials to fit the needs of the learner.

Political Science

My associate's degree is in political science. I have also taken up to 400-level POS courses at ASU and can assist with studying or exam prep. I am also available to review any current assignments to explain key concepts to help you pass with ease. I have recently worked directly with students on POS210 - Political Ideologies and am familiar with the content and goals of this course. I can work with your needs and strengths to digest the reading, understand the quiz material and prepare for exams.

Social Studies

I have taught World History, US History and AZ history at the high school level. I have also tutored and worked with some early college history courses and material. I can help with test prep, assignments, or just explaining the complex concepts and historical themes. I feel comfortable working with high school and early college history courses.

Currently covering material for World History, US/AZ History and Government at the high school level and 100-level HST courses at ASU. I can work with higher level material from the beginning of the semester only.
