About Matthew

Though I am new to tutoring, I have been interested in teaching, learning, and education for many years. Growing up as a gifted child in the public school system, I often found schoolwork boring and dull.

Luckily, and with the help of many friends and mentors, I've since discovered some techniques and educational approaches that have helped me to enjoy deep learning of a variety of subjects, including ways to make all levels of math concepts feel fun and useful!

I have over 9 years experience working with youth in grades 6-12, and I have a 7-year old boy of my own, so I am open to tutoring all school-age children of all abilities, though my ideal student would be a highly gifted but unmotivated student in grade 6 or higher.

I have a B.A. degree in English and am a member of the Triple Nine Society (an international organization for individuals scoring in the top 99.9% on a qualifying IQ test).

Since I am brand new to tutoring, I will have the time and mental bandwidth available to focus intently on your student!
