About Matthew

I have a passion for education and specifically elementary grade level students. I have been working at Desert Christian Academy as a Substitute Teacher, Teacher's Aid, and Middle School Zoology Teacher for some time now and have a great deal of experience working with children one on one as well as in a group setting. I also have years of experience in the informal education area as a zoological wildlife presenter/educator. I am most proficient in the Sciences, Language Arts, and Bible, but I am able to tutor other subjects in the elementary and middle school level as well.

I have years working as a professional exotic animal trainer/keeper/educator. I am well versed in all aspects of zoology, ecology, and natural sciences. I have worked with almost every animal found in a zoological setting and have traveled extensively as well to gain a greater understanding of the world around us, both in wildlife and human culture.

I have been a Christian for many years and studied Bible for even longer. I am a graduate of Desert Christian Academy and have also taken many Bible courses at Vanguard University, a Christian College in Newport Beach, CA. Jesus is my savior and I have a passion about learning more everyday about His Word and the relationship with Him it brings.

I have been working at DCA in Bermuda Dunes for some time now and have gained valuable experience working as a Substitute Teacher, Teacher's Aid, and Middle School Zoology Teacher as well as wearing many other hats. My passion if for the elementary kids and I feel that I am called to work with that age group. I have personally taught every subject in the elementary grade level and feel confident about tutoring accordingly.

Please feel free to contact me anytime and ask when I am available to tutor. I work everyday until 4:00 PM, so I will usually be available anytime after that Monday through Friday. I prefer to stay in the Palm Desert, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes area, so if your in that radius, even better. I am also available some Saturdays if need be. I look forward to hearing from you and eventually helping your child to succeed in every subject. Thank you for your time.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a strong Christian for about 10 years now and have continually studied the bible and theological topics. I have taken New Testament and Old Testament courses at Vanguard University and have studied extensively under my pastor, Dr. Sam Mathews. I also taught Bible Study during Summer Camp everyday this year. I work at a Christian School and am always learning more and more about the Bible.

Zoology

I have been teaching zoology and wildlife classes here at DCA for about 6 months and have been educating people as a zookeeper/exotic animal trainer and educator for about 5 years in a non-formal environment. I am very skilled at teaching about animals and wildlife topics including ecology and herpetology. I have a strong passion for wildlife and can teach most science courses in elementary and middle school level grades.
