About Matthew

I am currently a sophomore student at La Sierra University, majoring under Global Studies with hopes of becoming an English teacher abroad. I've gone through many tutors myself so I built my teaching strategies off of those years of experience and learning. I have tutored many high schoolers and middle schoolers in a multitude of subjects, including Math, English, and History. Teaching has always been a passion for me because I always want to help bring people to their best possible potential.

I have spent several years traveling abroad to Korea, Japan and Taiwan, tutoring both middle and high schoolers in English classes, as English is a rapidly growing language in these countries. Through this experience, I was able to discover my desire to teach or tutor one of the world's most commonly used language to as many people as I can. I have always been a reader, even as a young child, and I believe that has helped reveal my future goal.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me, being a student, I reply to any type of communication extremely quickly. Even though I still have classes to attend to, I will make sure to find time and be extremely flexible with your schedule. I look forward to hearing from you and to help you succeed in whatever you need assistance in.

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.

Elementary Math

Although elementary math may seem easy to many, I have learned through my years of tutoring high school students that math is an extremely difficult subject to teach. However, my years of tutoring math have given me the confidence to bring my methods onto Wyzant so that I may help prospective students to attain the same confidence I did in math.

English

I have tutored numerous high school students in writing, reading, proofreading, and grammar. Not only have my grades in this subject been straight A's for the past four years, I have taught numerous students about the application of the English language. Ranging from elementary school students to ESL students, I would like to begin applying my teachings to students who I meet over Wyzant.

Grammar

I've tutored now seven different students in their needs of learning Grammar. All of them have shown improving marks in said subject after a couple weeks of my tutoring. I look to now apply these teachings to the students I meet on Wyzant.

Literature

Reading has always been a passion for me to tutor in. Several of my past students have expressed that they have felt significant improvement from when I helped them with their literature studies.

Proofreading

I have been asked by many high school and college peers to proofread numerous projects ranging from cover letters to twelve page essays.

Reading

I have tutored multiple high school students in Reading, Writing, Grammar, and Math.
