About Matthew

I am currently a history and test prep instructor at an all boys private school in Arden, NC. Before teaching history, however, I taught math and tutored professionally for over 7 years. During that time, I received formal training and worked with students in all subjects except a few languages. I have logged thousands of hours with students on a one-on-one setting, providing a space where they can casually absorb information without pressure from the classroom or the teacher. This being said, I am very qualified to tutor your child. I try to focus on the student's strengths when I meet with them. I've found that focusing on what students are good at allows them to approach their weaknesses with confidence instead of fear. I believe absolutely that "practice makes perfect," and I have a virtually limitless amount of resources that will help them reach their goals. In 2005, I graduated from Furman University with a B.A. in History and Health and Exercise Science. In the winter of 2011 I graduated from UNC Charlotte earning my Masters in History. I made a 1400 on my SAT, 5's on 6 AP tests, a 1300 on my GRE, including a 770 Math and 5/6 on the writing portion. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude from Furman with a cumulative GPA of 3.72. My GPA in my Masters program was a 4.0/4.0. This past year a version of my master's thesis was published in the Journal of East Tennessee History earning the East Tennessee Historical Society's McClung Award in the process.
