About Matthew

Hello,

I am an online educator with a passion for tutoring students in a one-on-one learning environment. I believe strongly that additional academic support is critical in giving students the opportunities to succeed not only in school, but in their eventual careers as well. I have over six years of classroom teaching experience with the ability to instruct students from the elementary to high school level in multiple subject areas (U.S./World History, U.S. Government/Economics, English Language Arts, Algebra, and French). I also have experience with writing development and proofreading essays. I have also received my South Carolina Professional teaching license.

My aim as a tutor is two-fold. First, I want to support students with their current assignments (homework, test/quiz prep). During our sessions, I will help students stay organized and implement review material from past lessons that we covered. Just as important to supporting them with their coursework is to help them build long-term study skills that they will be able to use down the road. I want to ensure that your student gains confidence in their ability to learn. I focus on making each tutoring session productive, but I also want to make sure that your student is comfortable while making the topics we are going over interesting and relevant. I look forward to an opportunity to tutor you or your child.

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.
