About Matthew

For over eight years, I've been helping undergraduates as a teacher and tutor at a number of institutions, including Rowan University, Temple University, and Rutgers University, to become outstanding writers, readers, and students of English and literature. Now I'm ready to help you.

My passion lies in empowering students to find and hone their voices in an atmosphere of perpetual learning. To do so, I approach teaching through a flexible, craft-based pedagogy designed to inspire students through solid fundamentals, guided workshops, and discussions. If you have the time and motivation, I can help you achieve the success you need to get ahead in academics. I specialize in the following areas:

- Essay prep, drafting, revision, and proofreading at ALL levels (ACT, SAT, GRE)
- General reading and writing from 9th grade through graduate level
- Literature including American, British, World, Post-colonial, and more
- Creative writing including fiction, poetry, non-fiction
- Application essays including college admission, scholarship, and grants

My availability varies based on my teaching load. Currently, I can only meet in person in central Philadelphia, but I'm also available for online tutoring sessions to any part of the United States. For more information, contact me today!

I look forward to helping you find new levels of success and fulfillment in your studies.

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.

Public Speaking

Over the past eight years, I've been teaching reading, writing, composition, grammar, and rhetoric at the college and high school levels. A major part of this is the construction of argument and rhetoric, both in writing and oral presentations. In addition, my years of lecture experience have given me unique insight on what it means to verbally present a topic to an audience, capture and maintain their attention, and to do while being engaging, inclusive, and active.

Vocabulary
