About Matthew

I have a Master of Education in teaching English as a second language. I also have a Bachelor of Arts with honors in English. Both degrees are from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I communicate well with junior high, high school and adult English language learners. I have strengths in working on pronunciation, writing, grammar, and vocabulary expansion.

I enjoy helping students learn and understand English writing and speaking. In my spare time I enjoy studying languages. I speak some French, Spanish, Japanese, and a little ancient Greek.

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.

ESL/ESOL

The English language and foreign languages have always interested me. I have studied a little French, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, ancient Greek and Hebrew. This has given me a better view of what English learners need to know, and how to explain English to them more clearly. I finished my Master's program in ESL with a 3.9 GPA.

Grammar

I received my Bachelor of Arts cum laude in English from the University of Massachusetts, with a 3.4 GPA and a score of 740 on the verbal portion of the SAT. I have studied several foreign languages, among them French, Russian, classical Greek, and Spanish. These studies have reinforced and enriched my grasp of English structure and grammar.
