About Matthew

My name is Matthew, and I have my BA in Criminology from the University of California, Irvine. In addition to that I also studied History while at UC Irvine. I graduated with Honors, and will be attending the MAS Program in Criminology at UC Irvine next year. While attending UC Irvine I took the opportunity to tutor students in several different areas, and these areas were college History, Criminology, and English. Additionally I have one year of experience working in a classroom at West Orange Elementary School, where I acted as a volunteer Teacher's Aide.

While teaching students I showed them different ways to take notes in several different ways, because most them did not know how to take effective notes. Once I was able to break that I was able to come up with weekly assignments for the students to work on, such as either having them write out portions of the essays that they were working on. For the elementary class that I worked with I had them answer prepared questions, and developed work related spelling quizzes to improve their aptitude. Additionally when they had spelling work to do I would sit down and help them work on trying to spell the words phonetically, which was the biggest problem. The students needed someone to have them slow down and spell the words in segments.

For History and Criminal Justice classes I go through the course material prior to meeting with any students, and upon meeting them I like to have them give me a summary of what they have understood of the material. After that I prefer to go through additional items, and run through a set of questions previously set up that have not been answered. I also like to have the student use the resources in their text, such as going through the vocabulary, and questions that are placed in their text. For some students I understand that reviewing through the text on their own is troubling, so I also can teach them either how to speed read, or create notes with them that they can find useful and more to their liking.


I would be an outstanding spelling tutor, because I have always been an excellent speller. I don't have an certifications in this, but I must say that have been editing papers for people for the past several years. Additionally as mentioned prior I have experience working on spelling with elementary students (4th grade).

With my History minor I focused on Latin America, but additionally excelled at US History, and European History. With my Criminology major I can help tutor for Criminal Justice and Criminology classes. As a matter of fact I have been accepted into the MAS program for Criminology at UC Irvine, which is an online program that I will start next school year.

Please feel free to contact me to set up lessons, and learn more about how I can help you. I am eager to please, and am able to adjust my plan and style of tutoring to the needs of the student. If the student learns best by simply having an extra lesson I can do that, but I can also provide hands on work in subjects where it is available.

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.

American History

I started my studies in college as a History major, and performed incredibly well in all of my history. I led study sessions and tutoring sessions for all of my History classes. After completing these I would tutor students in those classes at later semesters. I was able to do this, because I got A's in each class. The average student that I would work with typically had a C or a D in the grade, and they usually got an A or high B. My average History GPA between Santa Ana College and UC Irvine was 3.8.

Criminal Justice

I am qualified to tutor Criminal Justice because I have graduated from the University Of California, Irvine with my BA in Criminology. Additionally I have been accepted into their Criminology MAS program started in Fall of 2016. Furthermore, while pursuing the degree I gained experience working directly with a lawyer by the name of Russell J Thomas Jr, gaining experience in the actual courtroom, and in handling real court documents.
