About Matthew

I am currently a university student who has been enrolled in both the English and Creative Writing departments of University of California, Riverside.

I have tutored students in writing in order to place well on Advanced Placement exams for college and California High School exit exams on a high school level. I've taken and scored well on both English AP exams, and taken several intensive English and Writing courses at the college level. I have a firm understanding of both the importance of appealing to the reader of the essay, as well as the importance of maintaining creativity as a writer.

I have taken and scored well on the SAT exams, and I've taken and passed the WPE in the California State University system. I have flexible hours and can meet with students of all levels at various locations. I am also a distinguished reader and can offer aid in improving reading comprehension.

I have Creative Writing, English and Theater writing experience on the college level at the distinguished undergraduate programs of the University of California, Riverside. I also have one year of tutoring experience with high school students in a program designed to promote high school to college advancement. Experience with the SAT, WPE and Advanced Placement exams.

I have flexible hours as well as access to a car for meeting in various locations. I prefer online meetings and appointments at coffee shops or libraries, but am willing to accommodate for house visits.

Elementary Education:
Reading

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.

English

I have experience in the English and Creative Writing departments at University of California, Riverside. I also have experience in the theater department, which means I have deeper knowledge of plays often taught in high school. I have also passed and excelled in several English exams during and after high school. Moreover, I have tutored high school students taking AP exams in English.

Literature

I have taken upper division classes at University of California, Riverside requiring a complex analysis of Fiction, not only in themes, but in writing tools. Because of that, I can provide a deeper analysis of assigned books for classes that help not only on tests in the immediate future, but far down the line with critical thinking skills during essay preparation. I have also taken various courses in other subjects that require intensive study of factual events and researched articles, so I am qualified in genres other than pure fiction.

Proofreading

I have worked at a student newspaper called, "The Highlander," for the University of California, Riverside, and have experience with editing both my own work and the work of others. I have written articles and worked closely with an editor to maintain acceptable standards for public consumption. I have also taken college classes with strict guidelines for paper submissions, and excelled in those courses without aid. Finally, I have prepared various presentations and papers for class consumption, and scored high on all marks.

Reading

I have worked in college courses requiring an immense load of reading in a 10 week time period. I have experience in all genres of reading, and practice an active role in both annotating and taking notes while reading for class. I have also taken exams for college and the SAT, as well the AP program, that require on the spot analysis of passages, and can instruct on how to break down college prompts, and prompts for admission to college.

Writing

I have written professionally for the Highlander, and have always maintained a high level of success in the English and Creative Writing departments of UCR. I believe that the creativity of the writer can be channeled to meet the standards of the reviewer of an essay, and that all people are capable of meeting those standards. I have experience with story-writing, and I have also taken writing exams for both college and high school.
