About Matthew

I am an aspiring high school/middle school social studies teacher. I have two years student teaching experience instructing US history and psychology, as well as four years tutoring (unpaid) to students ranging from the 1st to 12th grade in a variety of subject areas.

I graduated in May 2016 from the University of Akron with a degree in Education: Social Studies, grades 7-12. I have student taught American history courses and an Intro to Psychology class at Barberton High School and Ellet High School, located with the Akron Public Schools district. I also have a strong background in American government and microeconomics, which, I believe, makes me much more well-rounded in comparison to other social studies teachers.

I believe I am an outstanding social studies teacher and tutor because I have a very strong passion and overwhelming content knowledge in my subject area. I tutor social studies by breaking a large volume of vocabulary and concepts into themes and eras. I also help my students by helping them construct graphic organizers, implementing color coding and other visual aids, and encouraging them to personally state or explain the significance of the subject matter they learn.

I have had a variety of student teaching and tutoring experiences with children with special needs, ranging from helping very high-functioning learners with social interaction and personal accountability needs, to assisting those who had moderate cognitive and motor skill disadvantages and struggled to thrive in the general education environment. I have work experience lesson planning and co-teaching with multiple intervention specialists, participating in IEP meetings and parent-teacher conferences for learners on IEPs/504s, making myself available for before/after school tutoring in the social studies, and implementing accommodations/modifications prescribed in IEPs. I also have the patience requisite to build the connections between a tutor and the student and the willingness to employ new approaches when others do not work.

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 Bachelor of Arts degree in Education: Integrated Social Studies for grades 7-12, and have a 4-year resident educator license from the Ohio Department of Education in teaching Social Studies, Adolescent through Adult (7-12). I have field experience, student teaching experience, and long-term substitute experience implementing lesson plans in grounded in educational theory and social studies standards, in both NCSS themes and AIR-based Ohio standards.
