About Matthew

I began tutoring in 2010 as an AmeriCorps VISTA member. In conjunction with the Refugee and Immigration Services of Hampton, I developed and tutored in a summer intervention program for recent Iraqi, Nepalese, and Burmese refugees.

At the end of 2010, I moved to Thailand and taught 2nd grade English, Science, and Math. In addition to my homeroom duties, I also served as the head of the International Department and tutored 10-15 hours a week.

Shortly after completing my contract in Thailand, I moved to Uganda and served as a Literacy Specialist in the Peace Corps. Within that position, I taught 2nd and 4th grade English and Math, in addition to 3x weekly remedial reading/writing lessons. I just returned after 2 years in Uganda and I will start working on my Master's of Education at UVA in the fall.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have spent the last five years teaching and tutoring students in lower primary/elementary schools across the world. As an AmeriCorps volunteer, I designed and implemented a summer intervention course for recent refugees to America. Following that, I lived in Thailand for two years and taught 2nd grade English, Science, and Math while simultaneously tutoring up to 14 hours a week. Most recently, I taught 2nd and 4th grade English and Math in Uganda as a Peace Corps Volunteer for two years. I will begin my Master's in Elementary Education at the University of Virginia in the Fall.
