About Matthew


Bio

I have tutored privately and taught English in Kathmandu, Nepal. I hold degrees in English and Classics, have done coursework at the University of Oxford, and am planning to attend either graduate school or law school in the coming year.
I want to help students find joy in what they are learning. I did not find that joy until I went to college, and began to see broad themes playing out on a historic scale. This is what languages and literature can do for us: contextualize the things we feel...

I have tutored privately and taught English in Kathmandu, Nepal. I hold degrees in English and Classics, have done coursework at the University of Oxford, and am planning to attend either graduate school or law school in the coming year.
I want to help students find joy in what they are learning. I did not find that joy until I went to college, and began to see broad themes playing out on a historic scale. This is what languages and literature can do for us: contextualize the things we feel and experience day-to-day in the scope of a grand human narrative. I want to bring that to my students, as well as an excitement to discover the world.

I hold a degree in Latin from Kenyon College and studied at CUNY's Latin Institute, which emphasizes rigorous grammatical understanding and syntactical recognition. I believe that students can, in fact, master Latin and that it never again needs to seem daunting and arcane, because, when you know the rules, you can translate anything.

I also hold a degree in English from Kenyon College, where I specialized in eighteenth-century novels, and wrote a 122-page thesis on the novel 'Tristram Shandy.' I can help students to read better—by this, I both mean to increase their comprehension and to increase their productivity with the many tools I've developed—and to write more clearly and effectively.

Having achieved a score of 170 on the LSAT myself, I can help students achieve their goals and gain acceptance into top programs.

Good Latin Tutor

Matt is helping my son with HS Latin II. He was able to engage with my son and hold his interest in this subject, which is a challenge. I highly recommend him as a Latin tutor.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Matthew has helped my 10th grade son tremendously. I highly recommend him as a Latin tutor. We will be continuing our sessions with Matthew on a regular basis for the rest of this school year and into his junior year, as well!
