Howdy, my name is Matt and I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Houston. I received both my Bachelor's degree (in Creative Writing and Philosophy) and Master's degree from Texas A&M University. Alongside my current degree, I am the Reviews and Interviews editor for the Gulf Coast Literary Journal and a freelance reader and copy editor. I am always looking for students eager to learn!

My experience with tutoring ranges from elementary UIL Editorial Writing coaching to a year of teaching college-level technical writing courses. In addition, I've worked with second-language learners on conversational English and have been an editor for several journals and publishers. To me, tutoring is the informal yet thoroughly-involved process of education that is critically important to all of us. Knowledge is meant to be shared!

As a graduate student, my writing skills were under constant scrutiny, and now, I have streamlined my writing and editing process and have been able to relate that experience to my students and clients for over a year now. My blend of academic and creative writing has allowed me to view any piece of writing from a variety of grammatical, structural, and aesthetic perspectives, and I believe many people can benefit from my particular skills.

Please contact me to learn more about what I can do for you! I strive to be the best at what I do, and I'll do my best to make every session an engaging experience in which your learning goals are accomplished.

SAT Reading

In my graduate program, I have become intimately familiar with the close readings of passages as well as the identification and implementation of somewhat obscure words, both of which are tested on the reading portion of the SAT. In addition to my current education, I have both taught and tutored in technical writing at the university level, making me a strong tutor in the development of college-level writing.

Great Tutor

Matt is very knowledgeable. He is a great fit for my son. When I met Matt and explained to him what we were looking for in a tutor he had a plan of action and consulted his thoughts with us to see if we were all in agreement. Since then my son has been able to understand and move along smoothly.
