About Matthew

Paulo Freire defined the ideal teacher as devoted to "scientific formation, ethical rectitude, respect for others, coherence, a capacity to live with and learn from what is different, and an ability to relate to others..." I take this Sophist approach with my classrooms. My objective is to equip students with the critical thinking skills necessary to make their own discoveries, reason out their own thoughts, discern right from wrong and true from erroneous. I want my students to grow into well-balanced individuals and active participants in society.

I have experience working with English language learners as well as children and adults with disabilities. I am a certified teacher and I currently teach English as a Second Language to High School students at Austin Preparatory school. Some of my students have learning disabilities and IEPs. I have experience navigating the behavioral health field, functioning as a liaison between several different institutions, keeping the goals of these institutions cohesive, and advocating for students' best interests.

I have been working with ESL students for the past three years. My students have all seen dramatic improvement in all facets of their English language skills, and drastic improvement in their grades in all subjects.
