About Matthew
I am a passionate, patient, and detailed oriented individual who has been teaching friends and classmates privately off and on since 2007.

University of Texas at Dallas, Writing Tutor
2014 - 2016
I helped undergraduate students work from every field work through any phase of the writing process, from brainstorming to final polish. Each session would begin by establishing what the student's concerns were and narrowing our focus to one to two achievable goals for that session. I would then ask questions to help them work through their thoughts as well as clarify anything they might need to know.
