About Matthew

I am a teacher today because of the amazing teachers I had as a student. They showed me that education is more than just a textbook. I grew to love writing in English class and learning about amazing stories in History class because of these great educators. I want to provide the same inspiration and motivation to this generation!

Graduating with a BA in Secondary Social Studies Education in 2011, I have been teaching ever since. I am currently a PA state-certified Social Studies teacher and am comfortable tutoring students in all areas listed in my profile. In each of these subjects I can also provide simple yet essential test-taking strategies (especially multiple choice-based questions!).

If you are struggling in the classroom, please give me the chance to show you education is fun and you can thrive in school! Whether you are looking for motivation to do better in school, improve your writing skills, or are preparing for a big test, please don't hesitate to contact me!

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.

American History

I have a degree in Social Studies Education, and taught middle school American History for four years in New York. This past year I relocated to Philadelphia, where I currently teach 9th and 10th grade World History.

Basketball

I have played and coached basketball for many years. I was a varsity basketball starter in NY for four years, and went on to play four years of Division III Basketball for Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College). After graduating college in 2011, I was an Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach at a NY high school for four years, and the Head Junior Varsity Basketball Coach at the same NY school last year (2015-2015). I am comfortable with specific, individual-based instruction as well.

Bible Studies

Graduating from Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College) in 2011, I received my ACSI (private teaching organization) certification in both Bible and Social Studies. That certification is still active; the past four years I taught both Bible and History classes at the high school level at a private school in New York. I have an extensive knowledge of the Bible, Theology, Apologetics, and the History of Christianity due to my education while attending Bible College and my personal faith.

Regents

Before moving to PA, I taught high school Social Studies in NY for four years (Fall 2011-Spring 2015), which included extensive test-prep and practice for the NYS Regents tests for both Global Studies and US History. During those four years, I also graded hundreds of NYS Regents tests in an official capacity.

Social Studies

I am currently certified in the state of Pennsylvania to teach Social Studies grades 7-12. I currently hold a Social Studies teaching position. Prior to this, I taught Social Studies grades 7, 8, and 9 for four years in New York.
