About Matthew

I graduated from the University of Hartford in Elementary and Special Education. I student taught in first grade for my elementary placement. I taught post-secondary students in a transitional academy for my special education placement. I have taught, substituted, and tutored many students. I have also passed the Special Education Praxis as well as the Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies subtests of Praxis II.

I love tutoring because it gives me a chance to help every student find their strengths and build their confidence. Working with a student one on one gives me a unique opportunity to get to know a student and help them build their strengths based on their styles and interests. Students all have different unique styles and talents who often are teachers themselves because they teach me how to better teach them as well as many other students. Growing up, I had many tutors who turned me from knowing nothing to a confident experts in subjects just because they were able to understand me and help me find my strengths. I love being able to pass that on to students.

I am a certified Elementary School teacher in grades K-6. I am a licensed special education teacher for students Kindergarten through senior in High School. I am currently working as a second grade special education teacher,
I passed the Reading Subtest of the elementary Praxis and got 17 points above the minimum score.
I passed the Math Section of Praxis II and got above the minimum score.
I passed the Social Studies Section of Praxis II and got 15 points above the minimum score.
I passed the science section of Praxis II and got 10 points above the minimum score!
THEREFORE I PASSED ALL SECTIONS OF PRAXIS II! I very much enjoy helping everyone pass this exam, I want to see anyone and everyone pass.

The fact that I can specifically point out where a student's strengths and weaknesses are and then pin point the best way to help them using many different strategies.

I am very flexible and can meet at any time and any place. I can even meet at 2:00 in the morning if that is when I can best help you! If you want someone who will turn you in to a person who is as confident as anyone in your learning style, send me an e-mail. I always respond to my e-mails within 2 hours. Let's get started!!

Approved subjects

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have my bachelor's degree in Special Education. I have worked with multiple students with many different exceptionalities. I have worked with students as young as 3 years old to students as old as 22. On the Special Education: Mild to Moderate exam I got a 182 which is 19 points higher then the minimum score. My diverse background will serve me very well here.

Elementary (K-6th)

I passed all four sections of the Praxis II elementary subtest. I student taught in first grade and have substitute taught in other grades as well. I did my student teaching in first grade as well as a long term placement in fifth grade. And I have a bachelor's degree in Special Education.

Poker

I have played poker competitively for a very long time. I know all of the hands, rules, and plays that are to be made in poker. I have learned how to win when having a hand as low as an ace high and have had to learn how to battle with having a Royal flush. It is very much a mind game, and I am excellent at getting into other people's heads to see how they are playing.

Praxis

I passed all four subjects of the Praxis Exam. I scored well above the minimum required scores, therefore I can be a huge recourse to someone who needs help taking it!
