About Matthew

I have studied a variety of Social Science disciplines my entire life and have a true passion for teaching and spreading knowledge. History is but one of my majors and I have conducted extensive research in the field as well as worked as a substitute school teacher in History and German.

My German studies include three years in high school, three separate visitations to Germany and Austria, and several college level courses in the language. My accent is most common to that of a Berliner but I teach all common accents within the language. I speak, read, write, and communicate the language in an easy to learn and fun manner.

My other major is Religious Studies where I studied Vedic Traditions or commonly known as "Hinduism" as well as Judeo/Christian faiths. This study involves faith claims but drives into a multi-national and multi-cultural understanding of our planet. Religious Studies help develop a strong philosophical understanding of life.

I have a minor in Political Science and Government. I am well versed in American Government and International Studies.

Also, I have taken numerous courses and have a firm understanding of many social studies disciplines including Human Services, Sociology, and Psychology.

It would be my honor to help you and/or your child with academic difficulties or extra studying. WyzAnt Tutoring is a wonderful source that has combined my education and experience to help you!

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.

Bible Studies

I have a Bachelors Degree in Religious Studies from the University of South Florida where I studied a variety of religions and Biblical studies. My studies in regard to the Bible come from my research of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Qumran, Damascus, and the ancient writers and recorders of the Bible. I have also studied both versions of the Bible: the "Hebrew Version" and the "New testament version" adopted later by followers of Jesus.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to teach in these particular subjects as I am currently a Teacher who teaches grade levels k-9 to adult students. My title is Adult Basic Education Teacher which teaches elementary and middle school level materials. Also, I have spent many years as a substitute teacher working with elementary level students (mostly grades 2, 3, 4, and 5) in the Florida public school systems.

Political Science

I have over 18 credit hours in undergraduate credits in Political Science and am currently enrolled in a Master's program in Public Administration; a sub category of Political Science. I have substitute taught in government classes and keep a healthy devotion to political happenings around the world. Teaching political science can be difficult for some as they may find difficulty leaving aside personal perspective, however I have always maintained a professional and academic mentality when teaching any political science class or course.

Religion

I have a major in Religious Studies from the University of South Florida and have been studying Religion for nearly four years. My area of study is south Asia religions or Buddhism and Hinduism or Vedic Traditions. However, I have thoroughly studied western religions (i.e. Judea, Christianity, and Islam) and have a wholesome understanding of world religions. I have a deep understanding of the philosophical and academic views tied with each of these faiths.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor's degree in History and Religious Studies with a minor in Political Science. Also, I hold a valid temporary teaching certificate with the State of Florida in Social Science grades 6 through 12. The Social Sciences are the basis to critical thought and higher level thinking and that is the knowledge in which I formulate my tutoring/teaching style.

Video Production

I have spent the past 10 years working with Video cameras and production equipment as well as post production equipment as a volunteer with local broadcast channels. Also, I have been employed as a video production technician by a local school board and was hired as a Video Manager for a local transmission company for which I created promotional videos. On top of all of that, I opened a video production business and have produced thousands of hours of video.
