About Matthew

Hello,

I graduated from SUNY Geneseo in 2005 with a double major in English and in Political Science. My tutoring experience is at several age levels, including middle school, high school, and college. My collegiate tutoring is mainly in essay structuring, writing and editing, but I have tutored in history and math at the lower levels, too.

When working with a student, I like to focus on trying to teach them different ways of approaching their subject of difficulty. Sometimes, the problem isn't that they don't "get" the material, but that they haven't figured out yet how to approach it. The end goal for me is always to work myself out of a job. If I can help a student to learn how to better tackle the classes that they are struggling with so that they are no longer struggling, then I feel like I have done my job.

I'm currently a professional writer and have had four books published. I focus mostly on financial writing now, but I have experience with all types of subjects, including fiction. I've also edited at the professional level, if you are looking for help with essays.

If my expertise matches up with what you're looking for, please get in touch with me and we can talk further.

Thanks!

Matt

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have taken several classes and seminars on Biblical studies, including classes on broad overviews of the Bible and specific portions. I have especially focused on hermeneutics and interpreting the different genres within the Bible, both old and new testaments. Most of my classes were taken online through Ligonier Ministries. I also regularly read blogs and scholarly articles on Biblical analysis and application.
