About Matthew


Bio

I'm young and a energetic sign language interpreter. I've been signing practically all my life because my brother is deaf. I don't believe in wasting countless hours studying a book because sign language is an expressive language, and the best way to learn is to be expressive and practice. I've used sign language to give speeches and presentations to groups ranging from as little as 10 to over 3,000. I believe learning the language should be fun and something that enriches your life.

I'm young and a energetic sign language interpreter. I've been signing practically all my life because my brother is deaf. I don't believe in wasting countless hours studying a book because sign language is an expressive language, and the best way to learn is to be expressive and practice. I've used sign language to give speeches and presentations to groups ranging from as little as 10 to over 3,000. I believe learning the language should be fun and something that enriches your life.

I've taught over 30 people sign language thus far, and their ages ranged from 6 years old to 63 so I'm comfortable with a variety of ages. My brother has downs syndrome so I'm even used to working with handicapped people.

Too my brother, though being 37 years of age, reads at about a 5th grade level because of his handicap. For years I have worked closely with him to improve in his reading and comprehension.

I myself am an avid reader and during high school and collage have taken classes in academic reading, literature, and critical reading.

It’s a lot fun!

Matthew does a great job of explaining things clearly and makes it simple and makes it fun to learn ASL, as well as the nuances of deaf culture. I highly recommend him!

Daniel, 5 lessons with Matthew

Very helpful and patient

Since I'm a beginner in ASL, he's very patient with me and is always happy to slow down or repeat things. He's helping me focus on what I /need/ to know and also the things that will help with what I don't know. I enjoy our lessons!

Carmen, 2 lessons with Matthew

Kind and knowledgeable

Matthew was a great teacher and tutor. Altered the lesson plan to help me meet my goals. Emphasized key signs and phrases and repeated them with me until they became muscle memory. Very kind and flexible with times/meeting places.

Jacqueline, 2 lessons with Matthew

Very patient! Very knowledgeable! He was keen to what motivated my son to learn and recall.

Great tutor. My son had a wonderful experience and learned a great deal. I wish the summer was longer. I really wanted to continue the lessons to give my son some real world lessons outside of the norm.

Montague, 21 lessons with Matthew

Great teacher!!

Matthew is terrific. He taught five of my grandchildren (ages 7 to 11) sign language. By the end of the summer, they could sign "We Wish You a Merry Christmas". He was very patient with all of them. He is very knowledgeable. A very rewarding experience.

Bonnie, 18 lessons with Matthew

Excellent tutor

I have been working with Matt for about 4 lessons now (sign language) and very pleased so far. He is very approachable, creates an atmosphere for learning, and flexible with meeting times if I have to rearrange my schedule. He has shown a genuine interest in sign language as a whole as well as my goals behind learning it. I would encourage anyone who is interested in learning sign language to just contact Matt for a meet and greet (he and I met at a local Starbucks for our meet/greet) and go from there.
