I am an award winning and published writer with a masters degree and over ten years of tutoring experience. My specializations include English and writing for Middle and High School students as well as Religious Studies for undergraduates.

I believe in a twofold approach that not only emphasizes technique and style but also focuses on encouragement and enriching young minds. At the end of the day I hope to instill in my students a true appreciation of the material that will naturally lead to greater technical understanding. A typical lesson would either involve some prepared lessons tailored to a student's needs, or working through a specific assignment the student is struggling with.

Most recently I have worked with an ESOL student struggling with virtual learning. Working together we raised his letter grades from D's and F's to A's an B's in the fall quarter and have maintained those scores through the winter and spring.

My undergraduate degree in Religion and graduate degree in Theology equip me with a strong background in religious studies while furthering my knowledge of literature and English studies as a whole.

I would absolutely love to hear from you! I am easy to reach, fast to respond, and will be happy to meet your schedule. Please send me a message with a little information and we can set up a free consultation!

I love to work with people new or just learning the game of chess, and engage children in just how fun the game can be. My students learn how to win and learn to love the game of chess.

Great

Matthew taught me about subjects correlating to my school curriculum, and that really helped me a lot. He is a great teacher.

Matthew is a wonderful tutor!

Matthew's manner of teaching is so wonderful!! He’s patient and supportive, but really knows how to motivate his students. He’s great at building confidence and keeping lessons fun and engaging. He improved my son's writing, and reading skills.

I would highly recommend Matthew. He did a great job working with my son who was very reluctant to use a tutor. He was a big help and we hope to continue using his tutoring services.
