About Matthew

I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in English literature. I also minored in German during my time at Penn, where I was a member of the German National Honor Society. I am known as a patient individual; I can help your child meet his or her educational goals. Currently I work at Everest College as their full-time librarian, and in this role I help students proofread their term papers.

I try to put the student at ease and do my very best to help them in whatever areas they need the most assistance. As a tutor, I regularly elicit feedback from my clients so I can work towards continuous improvement. Although I have a 1 hour cancellation policy, I am always willing to offer makeup sessions.

To tutor students, I am willing to travel up to 20 miles to meet them. I normally prefer to tutor them in a neutral location, such as a library or coffee shop.

I look forward to hearing from anyone who needs help!

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 a bachelor's degree in English literature from the University of Pennsylvania. I have tutored multiple students before in this subject. In my place of work I help students revise their term papers.

German

During college, I minored in German. In my Junior and Senior years at college, I lived in the Modern Languages College House, where I lived with other German students. We were encouraged to go to dinner together, and it was a requirement to speak the German language for the duration of the dinner. I have also done translation work for clients.

Grammar

I have a degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania. At the time, students were encourage to take "WATU" courses, which stood for "Writing Across the University." These courses were heavily focused on writing and composition, and I was graded on proper grammar, syntax and writing style.

Proofreading

I have a degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania. I have experience helping students at the school where I work to proofread their papers. I have also tutored students in proofreading in the past.

Writing

I have an English degree from the University of Pennsylvania. While at Penn, I worked as both a general assignment reporter and a beat reporter for the University's flagship publication, the Daily Pennsylvanian. I also write in my spare time.
