About Matthew


Bio

Hello!
My name is Matthew, I have a Masters in Education and Bachelors in Economics. I've been tutoring students since my time in college(2003-2007). After college I lived in China(4 years) and Thailand(2 years) where I taught students English and learned their languages/cultures. I love to help students through tutoring because it allows me the ability to see them advance in both skills and confidence.

In the past 3 years I have expanded my tutoring to include subjects from Elementary level classes to the GRE as I began doing this full time. I have helped dozens of students pass their standardized tests and even more students get through painful classes. I am a born-again Christian and I'm happy to share with people, if they ask, about who God is and what he has done for me.

Formal Education:
Master's in Education - Mid America Nazarene University - 2019
Bachelors in Economics - Auburn University - 2007
Throughout my Bachelors degree 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 through 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. I find there are common threads of needs and wants woven among every person that, if plucked, make teaching and learning easier.

Language Skills:
I lived in China and learned Chinese for 4 years and reached the HSK4 level. My wife is also Chinese and Mandar

It is hard to imagine how our session with Matthew could have been better.

Matthew seems to be the perfect tutor for us. He knows his subject matter and is a gifted teacher (This is from two people who have had long careers as professional educators) who responds to our needs and our questions with clear insights into what we need to know for our upcoming trip to China. Matthew not only knows and conveys what we need to learn linguistically but what we need to know culturally about the country we are to visit in March. He is exceptional!

Philip, 1 lesson with Matthew

Patient and Knowledgeable

He carefully picked his way through problems and explained multiple ways of thinking about each step. I would highly recommend him to anyone having any sort of difficulty in Econ.

Owen, 1 lesson with Matthew

Fabulous and knowledgeable teacher

Teacher Matthew G. is super knowledgeable also experienced with English lesson. He is not only exactly pointed out my weakness but also give me a plenty of tips for IELTS. I was very pleased learning lessons from him even though I took lessons at last moment before my exam.

Jamie, 2 lessons with Matthew

Knowledgeable and patient

Has a great way of breaking down math and making you understand it! And is super patient with you.... he helps you understand it in a way that makes it so simple.

Christine, 4 lessons with Matthew

Educated, patient, and spiritual in tuned

Matthew G. has a lovely speaking voice that makes you calm which helps you figure out the answer(s) to the problems correctly. He says uplifting words that encourage you to keep working at a problem even if that problem frustrates you. Moreover, he knows exactly what he is talking about. You won't ever feel like he just learned this. You will know from his actions and words that the material he goes over is material he has studied and practiced for years. It seems like he actually loves his job and he doesn't just do it for the money. He's an all around great guy! I am looking forward to our next session. :)

Talae, 5 lessons with Matthew

Very helpful and patient..starting with math basics .. Always answers any questions I have.. Gaining the confidence I need to move forward. Would recommend to anyone who struggles with math.

Richard, 4 lessons with Matthew

Very good tutor

There have been 5 sessions and the kid is learning and happy. We appreciate Mathew's plan, prepare, and teaching. Teaching is clear and well accepted by the kid. Thank you for your efforts.

Lan, 80 lessons with Matthew

Great tutor

Matthew did some GRE Tutoring for our club. He was great! He prepared thoroughly, brought materials for students to review and take home with them, and went over the most missed questions in a patient and easy to understand approach! Would highly recommend him.

Christian, 6 lessons with Matthew

Very knowledgeable and laid back in his approach

Matthew's teaching style showed that he was knowledgeable with the subject matter but he was laid back so my daughter felt very comfortable with him and was more engaged in the process. He explained the material in a way she could understand. Geometry doesn't seem to be this impossible hurdle. We look forward to working with Matthew in the future.
