About Matthew


Bio

I have experience teaching students of every ability level; I have taught English at private college prep schools as well as schools for at-risk youth who struggle with basic literacy. I am passionate about the study of literature and writing, but I also understand that many are not. Therefore, one of my strengths as a teacher and tutor is making material relatable and being able to answer the question, "Why do I need this?"

I have experience teaching students of every ability level; I have taught English at private college prep schools as well as schools for at-risk youth who struggle with basic literacy. I am passionate about the study of literature and writing, but I also understand that many are not. Therefore, one of my strengths as a teacher and tutor is making material relatable and being able to answer the question, "Why do I need this?"

I believe that tutoring provides a unique opportunity to reach students in a more profound way than might be possible in the classroom because a tutor's sole job is to work with one student or small group, rather than a large class. Great things can be accomplished in an environment that facilitates that level of focus.

I am a Magna cum laude graduate from Ithaca college and am qualified to teach English at the community college level. I earned a 710 SAT verbal score and 680 SAT writing score.

I can be flexible in terms of scheduling and don't mind tutoring on weekends. 24 hour cancellation notice is required.

The perfect tutor!

Matt worked so well with my son. He is a Junior in high school and really was stressing about an essay he had due. Matt was willing to stay with my son (2.5 hours) until he was comfortable with how to word the essay. I can't thank him enough! Thank you for your patience Matt and your commitment to helping kids succeed!
