About Matthew

My love of teaching comes from my family. Teaching is a big part of my family and I knew that is what I wanted to do when I grew up. My mother inspired me to want to help students be successful and love learning. My main goal as a tutor is to help students achieve higher scores and become better students. When I work with students, I first try to understand what they struggle with in their studies and then we will work together to make learning fun and find a way to improve their learning.

I specialize in tutoring Elementary Math and Reading. I will work with your student to discover a way to help them improve their Math skills and confidence in Reading. My style of tutoring is to provide a structured tutoring session and provide positive feedback to encourage. I will work tirelessly to help your child to gain confidence to help him/her be successful in school.

I have unlimited availability and I am very flexible with my tutoring schedule. If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, I need at least 24 hours notice. I am available to travel to any location that is convenient for the student.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve success!

What makes me an outstanding Math tutor? My major in college was Elementary Education. I am up to date with the latest teaching styles and techniques to help students become more confident with their Math skills.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary Education has always been my passion. My mother was my inspiration for becoming a teacher/tutor. I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a degree in Elementary and Collaborative Education K-6. J.S.U. has one of the leading Education departments in the Southeast. I have learned from some of the brightest educators and I am ready to help students achieve success.

Handwriting

I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a degree in Elementary and Collaborative Education K-6. And I have always taken my handwriting with a sense of pride. From the moment I was little I wanted to impress people with my handwriting. When I started my Elementary Education classes, I learned several handwriting styles and techniques. I also believe that Cursive should still be taught and is a valuable tool. A student's handwriting when improved can help them later in their schooling.

Phonics

I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a degree in Elementary and Collaborative Education K-6. Reading was always a passion for me while growing up. I loved to read, but I had a problem pronouncing words. I had to take Speech Therapy when I was in Second grade and I used it as a motivational tool to help me gain confidence in reading. When I passed my Reading Praxis test I became a Highly Qualified teacher for Reading. Phonics is an important part of reading and I love teaching Phonics to students.
