About Matt

I’m certified in Massachusetts to teach ESL, Political Science and History with over eight years of teaching experience and a Master’s degree in International Educational Development from Boston University. I’m currently teaching ESL and Special Education Reading at City on a Hill Public Charter School in Dudley Square (Boston, MA).

I have experience tutoring students one on one and in small groups in public speaking, active listening, reading, writing, SAT and TOEFL prep from kindergarteners to adults. Also, teaching is both my career and my passion, so I’m always learning how to teach better through trainings and research on best practices, feedback and reflection.

I truly strive to connect with all my students through my own love for learning and empowering others that is so deeply rooted in my background in Philosophy and my experiences living and teaching abroad in Ethiopia. In sum, I'm experienced, qualified and passionate about helping all my students reach their goals.

My rate is $60 per hour and I'm available:
Anytime Saturday and Sunday (starting now)
Anytime in July
Anytime after 2 pm August 3 -7
Anytime August 8-20

Finally, I will plan lessons based on your particular goals and will provide lots of feedback on your writing between lessons.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

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.
