Hello! My name is Matthew, I've been tutoring students since my time in college, starting in 2003. After college I lived in China(4 years) and Thailand(2 years) where I taught students English and learned their languages and cultures. I love to help students through tutoring because it allows me the ability to see students advance in their skills and confidence. In the past 3 years I have expanded my tutoring to include subjects from Elementary to the GRE as I began doing this full time... [more]
I have worked with Geometry in my own life since High School and have spent a lot of time working with Geometry students both in person and online. I enjoy helping students who are struggling find the meaning behind Geometry and the secret to using it and understanding it.
I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in ESOL. I have completed a 120-hour TESOL Certification from the International TEFL and TESOL Training Center. I have 5 years of ESL teaching in China and Thailand. From 2003 to Present, I have tutored ESL in both America and Asia.
I have graduated from high school and college so I have a good knowledge of the topics on the GED. I have achieved a 31 on the ACT. I have also helped many students on the ASVAB and GED.
I have been teaching Reading Comprehension from 2nd Grade to Adult. I have helped regular American students who are just a little behind, people prepping for the SAT/ACT, as well as adult ESL learners.
I have taught ESL for 5 years and have been tutoring in ESL for 11 years. I have helped many international students prepare for going to college in other countries. That includes preparing for the TOEFL/IELTS and the GRE.
I studied through all the topics on the ASVAB during my schooling and have been tutoring students in the ASVAB since 2016. I have spent the most time helping students with English and Math so the reasoning/mathematics/vocabulary/reading sections are my focus but I can tutor all of the parts of it. I also have a number of practice tests I use to evaluate and focus the student's studying.
I scored a 31 on my ACT and a 90th percentile on my GRE English section. I've been teaching English for 11 years now.
I have passed the Florida General Knowledge exam for teaching elementary school. I have also been tutoring students from Elementary to High school level in Math in Pensacola.
I graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelors in Economics and I have been able to watch that in use in real life ever since. I have also been tutoring people, specifically in Micro and Macro Economics since then.
I have tutored many elementary students around my area in reading and math. I have passed the FTCE exam for the Florida Department of Education. I have also shadowed a 1st grade teacher for six months and am currently getting my Master's in Teaching from MidAmerican Nazarene University.
I lived in China for four years, where I met my wife (who is Chinese). We now live in America and communicate to each other only in Mandarin Chinese M, W, F and English T, Th, Sat to make sure we can both keep up with our language! I passed the HSK4 Level Chinese Proficiency Exam in 2015 and have continued to improve my language since then.
I have studied all the subjects on the ISEE exams from the lowest to the highest level. I have tutored students in the past in the ISEE also and helped them pass the test.
I have studied the subjects on the AFOQT and had no problem earning high scores on the same types of questions on the SAT and ACT. I have tutored people taking standardized tests like this one since 2013.
I taught IELTS Preparation classes to students in China for 3 years.
