About Matthew

My name is Matt. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Secondary Education from Point Park University. I was a children's entertainer for three years. I am also a successful published writer in over two countries. I specialize in English, Reading, Writing, and Public Speaking.


I believe a successful student requires certain skills and techniques that require expert guidance from teachers or tutors. This can be achieved in the following ways: 1) Access to comprehensive study guides; 2)Creative thinking; 3) Learning by example; and 4) Determination.

Moreover, I am very flexible in my teaching approach. I can fully appreciate a student's strengths and weaknesses, and I try to cater the tutoring experience through the appropriate learning style. A style is the manner in which a student expresses their ideas. A pupil can learn a lot by studying the style of other writers, and this helps develop their own writing skills.

In closing, I encourage all potential students to never stop trying to learn and improve. Failure is never an end, it usually means several tries until the goal is achieved.
