BA from Mississippi State University (History)
University of Southern Mississippi (Master's)
I'm Matt with an earned B.A. in History with a minor in African American Studies (graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA) and a M.A. in U.S. History. I have experience teaching and tutoring individuals from pre-K to a college setting, with my experience largely directed towards the latter. I, do however, am available to focus on a particular client's grade and ability level. I have several publications and public presentations under my belt and am an expert in oral and written communication. My strengths are in the Humanities, Social Sciences, writing, grammar, and critical analysis.
As mentioned before, I place great emphasis on critical analysis and proper writing. I am very easy to get along with and patient. I view education as a trans-formative process of self improvement. I usually hold my students to a high standard, depending upon circumstances, because step-by-step pressure and learning makes you a better scholar. The way I see it, it's better for me to point out ways to improve your academic work beforehand than having a graded assignment handed back to you. I think it's best to work on the strategies beforehand. Learning is a community effort, I think. Educators, your family and friends, loved ones, can be an invaluable asset on your path to becoming a more informed and capable individual of getting where you would like to go in life and secure personal happiness. Finally, I am very flexible with individual circumstances and am happy to accommodate whenever possible. Best,
Matt M., M.A. Greetings,

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.
From personal work experience, I trained an Autistic child, focusing on shapes, counting, colors, reading, and name recognition and writing, for seven months to get him ready to enter Kindergarten. Furthermore, I have given occasional talks about the Civil Rights Movement or read books to grades 3-6. While working as an AmeriCorps VISTA member, I organized a training program, focusing on successful strategies and cultural understanding, for college-aged tutors to work with K-12 students enrolled in after-school tutoring programs throughout the north-central area of Mississippi.
