About Mathew

I am a very effective tutor for students who want to learn English. I use both traditional and innovative methods to improve students' understanding, speaking, and writing of the English language. I have taught in both the United States and Europe and was a Soros Professional English Language Teaching Program Fellow for three years.

I enjoy working in a one-on-one environment and believe that with individual effort and my specialized help, anyone can gain fluency in English. Learning English can be a fun and enriching activity and I strive to have my students' enjoy the process. I work with both children and adults.

I also tutor students in English composition and History. As a teacher and author, I am able to help identify any deficiencies a student may have in these subjects and then rectify them.

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.

Public Speaking

In both high school and college I was a highly successful debater (LD and NDT) and individual eventer. As a high school teacher I coached debate teams and individual eventers.

As a Soros Fellow in Latvia I trained debate coaches and judges for the entire country in the Karl Popper debate program. At the First Gymnasium in Riga, Latvia I coached two consecutive national champion debate teams.

As a sports host I was a regular presenter on Championship Rugby, The FOX Sports World Rugby Report, The Rugby Club, and Rugby World from 2000 to 2010. I have also called numerous live matches in multiple years from the IRB Sevens World Series for a worldwide audience

AS a producer I have managed veteran and coached new talent in all of the aforementioned shows as well as for individual match broadcasts on ESPNU, FOX Soccer Plus, Root Sports, ABC7 in Denver, and in webcasts.
