About Matthew

I am a dedicated tutor who has tutored elementary school students all the way to high school. I work with the student in having them meet the teacher's expectations in completing assignments specifically to the homework. I enjoy working with students who are driven to improving on state scores and being able to succeed in their subject.
Having to work with students one-on-one is allowing the opportunity to meet the individual demands that pertain to the specific subject. For instance, if as student is learning about geography and is poor in the study of maps, they may have to have help with the use of an atlas in order to improve their ability to analyze and the unique qualities that consist in knowing the different features that let students know the how to read a map and grasp the essentials of synthesizing the specific parts in describing the map and its contents.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a Master's in Teaching Social Studies. I am passionate about having to create a better sense of learning for the student by allowing them to access technology that will make tutoring sessions adaptable to the student's educational level.

I am available to tutor students who are not jut trying to get help in homework. I am willing to tutor student to do well on standardized reading, writing, and history tests in order to be proficient in their subject and be equipped with the necessary concepts in order to make smart, responsible, well thought out answers to their teachers' academic goals.

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.

Social Studies

I have a Master's in Social Studies that as a result has allowed me to comprehend different methodologies that encompass in being a good teacher. For example, teaching history as a mystery is a strategy that I employ in having students discover key events and people in a specific time period. Having to work as a substitute has allowed me to have a greater sense of understanding of what is involved in designing lesson plans that have the student learning according to the Common Core state standards. Moreover, having the ability to tutor one-on-one provides the student the necessary attention and detail that is designed to improve their comprehension in history.

World History

I have a Master's in Education. I have substituted in charter schools for three years. I am driven to have students pass their required tests through task breakdown, improving critical thinking skills, and solving problems specific to the teacher's expectations using strategic skills such as pacing, process of elimination, completing short answer and essay questions by creating an outline and analyzing key events in social studies to comprehend questions related to AP History.
