About Matthew

I have taught history for a couple of years at the college level. I have a M.A. in the subject, and I have always enjoyed teaching and tutoring history/ social studies. I have many reasons for loving what I do. Helping students achieve their potential, adapting to students’ individual needs, building lasting relationships based on shared goals—these are what I love about tutoring history/ social studies. While a full-time teacher is important, a good tutor can help overall knowledge by combining lessons with a wider sense of context and humanity. A good tutor can combine subjects in interdisciplinary projects, incorporate the student’s interests and creativity, and stay constantly attuned to the student’s individual needs. The shared goal between the tutor and the student may be to raise the student’s grade from a C to an A, but the process can be richly constructed to get at something deeper.

As a tutor I also enjoy the sense of being a mentor that comes from influencing a young person in some tangible, positive way, helping them make essential connections, and developing their overall knowledge. I see tutoring not just as a way to fill in the holes that are left at the end of the school day, but as infinitely fulfilling, important work that ultimately builds a stronger future for students, one at a time.

I have a heavy background in social studies and the knowledge to tie them all together.

For more information, please contact me about lessons and scheduling.
