About Matthew

Hello!
My name is Matthew G., 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 was there as a born-again Christian missionary sharing the good news about the price Christ paid to cover our sins and the free gift offered of love, forgiveness, and new life in Him.

Formal Education:
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.

Student Types:
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.

Language Skills:
I lived in China and learned Chinese for 4 years and reached the HSK4 level.
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.

Experience and Certifications:
1. 12-hour TESL Certificate - October 2008
2. 120-hour TESOL Certificate - November 2016
4. 5 years of teaching experience in ESL
5. 10 years of tutoring in ESL/Math/Chinese/Reading/History/Economics.
6. I have been Christian for 10 years and have extensively studied Philippians, Matthew, and Job.

Currently Working On:
1. Masters of TESOL from Auburn University Starting Summer 2017
2. GL101x Leading Change: Go Beyond Gamification with Gameful Learning from University of Michigan.

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!

Approved subjects

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

Excellent tutor

Matt was able to teach my son specific techniques in understanding his 6th grade math. Matt had a way of engaging my son in a fun way that made math time something he enjoyed. Matt took the time to make and email work sheets of specific problems directed at my sons weaknesses. He also sent audio lessons to cover whatever problems were done incorrectly. I liked the ease of him working around
