About Mattie

I cherish the fact that I have the privilege to not only teach students, but to truly get to know them and care about them. Its only then that I have found that I am able to truly understand their learning style; What motivates them; Their strengths and weaknesses; and just who they are in general which is what provides me the tools and the motivation to be able to educate students and prepare them for what comes next. Even as a substitute I was always one of the last teachers out of the building because my students help and motivate me just as I hopefully motivate or provide some source of strength or hope.

My passion and love of teaching stems back as far as 1st grade. I loved learning and I found, (even as early as 7 years old) that the best way I was able to retain the information I was presented with was to teach it back to myself using a variety different methods until I found one that 'meshed' well with my thought process. I used that strategy all throughout my educational career and utilize those skills now when I teach my students.

I was an early childhood education teacher at Ohio University and graduated Cum Laude. Upon graduation several friends and I moved to Los Angeles where I was hired at a small private Christian school to establish what was then a brand new program called Transitional Kindergarten. I taught there for two years then moved to Chicago and taught in the southside neighborhoods Chicago Public Schools for the majority of the next 7 years until I recently moved back to Ohio.

As much as I love teaching I love tutoring more. I love working one on one with students; Using the ability I have to pick up on students learning styles so quickly, I am able to adapt to each individual child's needs optimizing their academic success. For two years I taught at Armour Elementary in Chicago and two days a week I would tutor with the Huntington Tutoring program. I specialized working with English speaking and ESL students using assessment techniques to design a curriculum specifically tailored to help guide students through lessons and instruction focused on improving students’ English literacy proficiency skills; recording and tracking improvement as they go to ensure lessons provided are contintunously changing and becoming more challenging as the student's academic levels increase.

I love and appreciate being apart of their growing education watching as their confidence and outlook on life was going through a transformation. And I give a great amount of respect as well for students who want to put through the extra effort; ensuring they get a solid grasp on the material so that their learning and educational experience will be a source of confidence.
