About Hector

Greetings,

My name is Hector Matteer, and I aspire to help students to succeed in the classroom! As a 2008 graduate of Harvard College, I developed a commitment to service and devoted my time to try uplift the youth and to nurture their gifts. Specifically, I participated in various student organizations devoted to community service and providing academic tutoring and mentoring with youth from all backgrounds. Currently, I am involved with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Houston and enjoy opportunities to work intensively with youth.

I have extensive tutoring experience in Math, Science, and Reading Comprehension and helped students to pass required state tests such as the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) examination. I am a firm believer in problem-solving and help my students to improve their performance through practice and repetition. Additionally, I believe in a collaborative and hands-on approach and will work with my students to identify their strengths and weakness, to devise simple and effective strategies, and to help them improve in critical areas such as: studying habits, test-taking skills, and time-management.

I am looking forward to connecting with students and helping them to improve their academic performance. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any additional questions or concerns. Thank you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I believe that I am qualified to tutor in Algebra 1 due to my significant tutoring experience while teaching this subject. I have experience tutoring students to complete their end of course examination in Algebra along with preparing students to complete Algebra problems that were on standardized tests such as the STAAR examination. My experience in Algebra includes assisting students in the classroom and completing in-home tutorials as well. I am a believer in practice and repetition, therefore I encourage my students to work additional problems outside of their coursework to help them to gain a better understanding of the material.

Elementary Math

As an elementary math tutor, I work with students to build a solid foundation in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. I strive to make sure that my lesson plans complement what the student is currently learning in school and focus on his/her problem areas as well. My tutoring experience includes preparing students to complete required state exams such as the STAAR exam.

Geometry

I am qualified to tutor in Geometry as I have significant experience tutoring in this subject. In college, I worked as a tutor extensively in Algebra and Geometry, and prepared students to perform well on their final examinations and state mandated performance assessments. I prepared students to complete the mathematics portion of the MCAS and STAAR exam, and this included Algebra and Geometry. My tutoring methods involve explaining the critical concepts and providing my students with opportunities to work practice problems to increase their understanding and to increase their confidence.

Prealgebra

A strong foundation in PreAlgebra helps to lay the foundation to learn higher mathematics such as Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, etc. I work diligently with students in PreAlgebra to help them to understand and master the critical skills in this area. Learning effective strategies and having extensive opportunities to work problems are essential to succeed in PreAlgebra!
