About Matthew


Bio

I graduated magna cum laude from Houston Baptist University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration, majoring in finance and minoring in cinema and new media. While in college I was accepted into both president's and dean's lists, and whenever possible I signed up for volunteer tutoring. I'd even arrange study sessions with fellow students who were having more difficulty with the classes. In the process, I discovered that I loved to help people figure out difficult concepts, and I was...

I graduated magna cum laude from Houston Baptist University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration, majoring in finance and minoring in cinema and new media. While in college I was accepted into both president's and dean's lists, and whenever possible I signed up for volunteer tutoring. I'd even arrange study sessions with fellow students who were having more difficulty with the classes. In the process, I discovered that I loved to help people figure out difficult concepts, and I was pretty good at it too. In many ways, it was like a puzzle where in addition to figuring out the best way to solve a problem, I also had to figure out the best way to explain the solution to others.

I grew up homeschooled alongside five siblings, and thus understand better than most how important it is to customize a lesson plan to meet the needs of both the student and the parent. If I find that a student is having difficulty with a concept, I can find different ways to explain until they figure it out. While I can work with any curriculum, I have experience working with Institute for Excellence in Writing, Math-U-See, Life of Fred, and Apologia’s Exploring Creation science series. In addition to the normal curriculum, I am very good at coming up with entertaining ways to help students learn, including opening classes with entertaining media or jokes and games to help the student practice.

I work on a flexible schedule from Sunday through Friday, and will work either for on-call or weekly sessions. I also offer discounts for groups. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

I have been homeschooled all my life and so have my five siblings. I am familiar with many different types of curriculum and will work with the parent to provide the type of education they desire for their child. I supplement my lessons with activities of my own design, and have several years of experience as a volunteer tutor over a variety of subjects.

Well informed tutor

Great job! Matthew was very detail oriented and patient. Made my boys feel at ease and have a better understanding of triangles. He was on time as well as very prompt in answering emails.

Excellent Tutor

Very professional. Mathew takes his work seriously and has always arrived on time. We are very impressed. He assigns homework, and is very clear about the approach he's going to use and applies it accordingly.

Great tutor

I would like to recommend Matthew as a tutor. He arrived on time and ready to dive straight into work. He has a great ability to stay on track and focused at the task at hand. His knowledge was very diversified in many areas and was a huge help! Thanks Matthew

Great tutor!

My son came back explaining ALL he had learned! He was so excited he “got it” and understood the steps. Matthew was very patient and prepared to teach. Thank you!!
