I went to Pensacola Catholic High then to Auburn University. I became a Christian while in Auburn and after graduation, in 2007, went overseas to teach English and do missions.

Certifications

GL101x: Leading Change: Go Beyond Gamification with Gameful Learning
Jul 2017
University of Michigan through EdX

Link to certificate - https://courses.edx.org/certificates/b5272a5ff431414ba3264d21d390bb12

In this course I explored how to use core ideas from well-designed games and motivation theory to design an instructional environment where students are deeply engaged, work hard and take intellectual risks, and are resilient as they work towards success.

We answered questions such as: What makes games such good learning environments? What kind of “game” is school (and how can we make it a better game)? How do we support teachers in growing their skills for gameful learning? What is the relationship between motivation and learning?

Matt has a great way of delivering lessons that can relate to both children and adults. He makes lessons manageable so that a subject as intimidating as Chinese, can be exciting to learn.

Wonderful instructor, willing to repeat himself and go back a few steps to reinforce a prior example. My son was hesitant to try this and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to learn when someone is working with you one on one. :)

My son had a great time using games/play to reinforce Chinese words and phrases.

Matt is excellent at sharing the different tones for Chinese. His native language english makes it easier for me to understands how to transition from English to Chinese.

He's awesome with my kids 9&11. They both have totally different learning styles and he's focused on there individual needs. He's teaching them on subjects that there interested in as well as day to day not just making them learn straight from a book which helps motivate them. My daughter and son look forward to each and every lesson.
