About Matthew

One of my first jobs in high school (so very long ago) was basic tutoring. I bring a wide range of experience to bear on the tutoring relationship from international development experience with the US Peace Corps, ten years of business experience in the corporate world, and ten years of experience working with children in educational and residential settings. I have a BA and MA in International Relations and I am a self-published author of two fiction titles available online. One of my first jobs in high school (so very long ago) was basic tutoring.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have seven years experience working with special needs children in educational and residential settings. The children I worked with often needed one-on-one attention in order to get through the day. I was lucky to have a job that allowed me to spend the time to provide children with a measure of success.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have seven years of experience as a substitute teacher's aide and children's counselor with the Santa Clara County Office of Education, Eastfield Ming Quong, and Santa Clara County Children's Shelter. Much of that experience centered on assisting children meet the very different demands of the classroom and help with academics and school work.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Outlook as an email/calendar/contact management application in a corporate environment for almost ten years. I use it on a daily basis and it is a crucial component of time management, communication and communication.
