About Matt

I have been teaching kids karate for nearly six years and my qualifications range through a few different subjects. My major at Emmanuel College is English, but I have minors in Philosophy and Theology and have spent a dedicated amount of time studying history and have recently begun being educated in theater.

My tutoring style is much like my teaching style, namely, make students learn the material they need to, but let them have fun with it. I see no point in a student learning if they can't retain what they learn and unless they have some reason to be interested in learning, they won't.

In addition to the subjects studied above, I have been studying Education at Emmanuel for three years and have completed the main component of the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL) as well as the English subject test and I intend to take more tests to prove competency in other subject areas over the summer.

I am open to any accommodations and am ready to start whenever I am needed. I cannot wait to begin working with any and all students I can and I look forward to helping all students succeed in any way I can.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chess

I have been playing chess for nearly fifteen years now. While I have no formal training or professional rank or score, I have been playing more or less consistently since I first learned. Many of my friends use me as a learning resource.

Literature

I have been studying English Literature at Emmanuel College for three years, it is my Major field of study and I have taken the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure in English and passed it.

I also took AP World History when I was in high school and scored a 4 on the AP Exam.

Logic

I have taken two courses in logic at Emmanuel College: Symbolic Logic and Critical Thinking. I have consistently been in the top percent of my classes. I was once considered to be a tutor for Symbolic Logic.

Martial Arts

I have been studying with the Cervizzi's Self-Defense System for nearly twelve and a half years and half been teaching for six years. Over the course of my study, I have supplemented it with studies of other martial arts, ranging from kendo to ba gua. I have also developed a personal sword art and would be more than happy to teach an apprentice.

Religion

I have been attending Catholic school for 17 years now (from pre-school to junior year in college). I have regularly been in the top levels of my classes in religious studies. As part of my college minor, I have studied a wide range of religious traditions and practices.

Russian

I took Russian for five years during middle school and high school. During that time, I consistently participated in Russian high school contests. I once attended the New England Olympiada of Spoken Russian, earning a gold medal. And I participated in the National Russian Essay Contest three times, earning two bronze medals and one silver.

SAT Reading

I took the SATs twice and consistently scored above 600 in both reading and writing.

SAT Writing

I took the SATs twice and consistently scored above 600 in both reading and writing.

Theatre

I have been working with the Emmanuel College Theater Guild for a year now. I have twice taken a course on Performance Techniques in musical theater. In the fall semester, I participated in all 6 performances of Mystery Radio Theater.

Writing

I have been studying writing in accordance with the Literature program at Emmanuel College for three years and as such have taken numerous writing intensive courses in order to prepare myself for a future teaching position. I also write semi-professionally as a media reviewer for The Hub, Emmanuel's student-run college newspaper.
