About Matthew


Bio

As an educator of 15 years, I believe strongly in the power of knowledge and education, and I seek to instill in my students the same ardor and desire to learn more as they progress through their lives. I became a teacher because I love observing the "Ah ha" moments with students when they learn to analyze, process, and comment on thoughts and information they take away from literary texts such as poetry, short stories, and novels or works of philosophy and literary theory and criticism. ...

As an educator of 15 years, I believe strongly in the power of knowledge and education, and I seek to instill in my students the same ardor and desire to learn more as they progress through their lives. I became a teacher because I love observing the "Ah ha" moments with students when they learn to analyze, process, and comment on thoughts and information they take away from literary texts such as poetry, short stories, and novels or works of philosophy and literary theory and criticism.

There also is a real joy when I can help students express themselves not only verbally but also through their writing about text or the world around them. My approach to teaching and tutoring is conversational; a strong dialogue helps me to gauge where you are in terms of comprehension and analysis, and it allows us to work through issues in reading, writing, and interpretation.

Throughout the past 12 years, I have helped hundreds of students achieve their goals in my own classroom and tutoring through a variety of subjects, ranging from American and British Literature, to AP English Literature and/or Language and Composition, to Composition, to Phenomenology and Existentialism, to Psychoanalysis and Literature, to World Mythologies.

Currently, I am teaching undergraduate students at university in Ukraine. I've also successfully taught students in grades 7-12. I've worked with, inspired, and helped students from ages 13-65 succeed in achieving their goals and sharpening their critical thinking skills. Observing students in the learning process as they read texts that they may not otherwise be exposed to and how these texts engage students' critical thinking and analytical skills are a few of the personal rewards I have experienced through the years as I cultivate a love of learning as a way of life within my students. I have also helped students achieve their goals in attending colleges and universities of their choice through my skill in helping students develop their writing and articulating their thoughts clearly,
