About Matthew

Hello! I have lived in China and Thailand for 5 years and spent time teaching students English and learning their languages and cultures. I love to help students through tutoring because of the ease of seeing students advance in their abilities and confidence.

I graduated with a Bachelors in Economics at Auburn University. Throughout that time I took a large number of Mathematics, Science, and Reasoning classes. This has equipped me with the knowledge needed to teach practically every class from K-8, every math and science class from high school and most other classes for high school students.

I enjoy tutoring students from Kindergarten all the way up to older adults as the thing that gives me joy is finding ways to help each individual student learn and then using that to watch them grow in the skills they are attempting to improve.

I lived in China and learned Chinese for 4 years and have an HSK4 certification.
I lived in Thailand for 1 year and learned Thai during my time there I will have no problem teaching elementary level Thai and survival skills Thai for tourists.

I have a 120-hour TESOL certification, 5 years of teaching experience in ESL, and 10 years of tutoring in ESL. In addition, I have been Christian for 10 years and have extensively studied Philippians, Matthew, and Job.

I'll be happy to talk about any of these subjects as well as any sports you would like to learn. Please send me a message anytime!
