About Matthew


Bio

I'm Matt! I graduated from Boston College as a Communications major and History minor. On my own SAT, I earned a perfect 800 score on the Reading section. I also received a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Drew University, certified in teaching Social Studies and Special Education. I love teaching because I think students today really want to succeed and achieve great things- oftentimes they feel a tremendous amount of pressure to find that success.

I'm Matt! I graduated from Boston College as a Communications major and History minor. On my own SAT, I earned a perfect 800 score on the Reading section. I also received a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Drew University, certified in teaching Social Studies and Special Education. I love teaching because I think students today really want to succeed and achieve great things- oftentimes they feel a tremendous amount of pressure to find that success. Easing that pressure and giving them the confidence to write authentically, to read thoughtfully, and to express themselves freely creates a genuinely positive effect on them and the world at large.

That's why I love what I do. I've taught U.S. and World History at the high school level, and currently teach Language Arts and Science at the middle school level. As a tutor, I specialize in SAT prep and essay writing, both for classwork and college applications. I also tutor in Language Arts, English and History.

I don't just expect the best from my students- I want to make sure I am always improving as well, to help them as best as possible. I welcome any feedback/suggestions you may have. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions, or to set up an appointment!

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I was elected as forum leader in Word of Mouth, BC's preeminent public speaking club. The club included different forums where members would give 3-minute speeches on the weekly topic. My responsibilities included organizing the meetings, selecting the topic each week, and giving positive and constructive feedback to each speaker. Speaking in public can be intimidating (even the words "public speaking" send many people into a panic!) but it is an incredibly valuable skill in any line of work. It also does wonders for confidence and creative thinking. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

I taught U.S. and World History at Randolph high school in New Jersey. During this time, I helped prepare students for taking their AP U.S. History tests. I've loved history as a subject ever since I was in high school, and it's my pleasure to help pass that love and knowledge on.
