About Mathew

I have been working with children for many years through both teaching elementary school age students and coaching a variety of sports. My passion for teaching and working with students not only comes out in my ability to develop relationships with students but to meet a student where they are and challenge each student but not overwhelm them.

Each year, my students have shown significant growth in math by integrating technology, practical tools, and using real world problems and developing solutions.

I love to read and have discussions around books, characters, themes, and help develop a love of reading by finding out what the student's interests are. In my experience, finding out what their passions are and then developing reading habits based on those passions are key.

I believe Common Core is a framework for learning. I use the Common Core to guide my instruction but use many different tools to achieve the goal. I think Common Core is just the foundation of a framework but an educator or a tutor must personalize learning to achieve any goal.

I have a proven track record of success in working with elementary students. I teach in a very diverse school with high poverty. Students are often a grade level or more below where they should be. Each year, I have a majority of my students gain more than a year's growth in reading, writing, math, and science.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me. I love to make learning fun and dynamic based on YOUR needs.
