About Matina

Hello,
I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with my B.A. in English Literature and Political Sciences. I also have a TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) certificate. I have experience teaching English abroad, and I have also been involved in tutoring children ages k-8 as a volunteer in high school, and later in college.

I have been an excellent student all my life and I love teaching others that learning can be a fun and engaging process, not just a monotonous chore. I have experience teaching both children and adults. I believe establishing a casual and enjoyable environment and preparing thoroughly for lessons makes for optimal learning. I have experience working from a provided book as well as creating my own lesson plans.

I would be grateful for your consideration,
Matina.

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.
