I have been teaching the ACT subjects for a long time now and when you take classes with me we will start with a practice test to get an idea of where your needs are. From there we will begin working on the highest subject area needs and work from there to get everything ready for the exam.

About Matt G.

I went to Pensacola Catholic High and graduated in 2003. I then attended and Auburn University, where I became a Christian, and graduated in 2007. Once I finished, I went overseas to teach English and do missions. I taught in Thailand from 2003-2007 and then in China from 2012-2016. I have been teaching since that time and am back home now to get my Master's degree in TESOL. I enjoy teaching people and watching their confidence grow as they learn new skills and develop new abilities. My teaching style is relaxing but challenging; as much as possible, I encourage and motivate students to have a love of learning, not just of this subject but of learning in general.

My experience learning with Matt was memorable. He's genuine and cares about your progress. When something seems to not work, he will try a different approach to the learning target.

Matt gives excellent instruction! He uses Windows Paint to display the process of solving the concepts and equations. He is confident and knows Math very well! (Alexander)

He was really understanding to the fact that I haven't been speaking much Chinese for the past 6 months. He went at a good pace and helped me understand all the vocabulary.

My son has been working with Matt for the last 4 months to continue learning Mandarin. Matt has been fantastic. Even after a long week of school, my son looks forward to working with Matt on Saturday. Matt not only has a great personality he is VERY punctual and responsive. He is genuinely committed to helping my son progress and offers great guidance to support his development. I would HIGHLY recommend Matt for anyone looking to learn Mandarin.

Matt is an incredible teacher and person in general. He understands so much about chinese and is able to easily communicate the lessons in a way that I can understand and practice between classes. I bought the 10 lesson pack from him and I'm an incredibly happy purchaser at lesson 9. My wife is chinese, and Matt gives me great sayings to take back to her. She is always excited to see the results of our lessons. When I ask her to teach me something she says go ask Matt.

My son is enjoying his Chinese classes. Matt knows how to teach to young kids and has made it a fun learning environment. There has been very good improvement in just 3 classes. His mid week revision is something very valuable as a tool to grasp a new subject.

Matt is an increadible teacher! He uses a software that allows him to explain concepts on screen, so it’s easier to grasp things visually. His pace is not too slow, not too fast, and easy to follow. Highly recommend him! 5 stars!

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. :)

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.

GL101x: Leading Change: Go Beyond Gamification with Gameful Learning
Jul 2017

University of Michigan through EdX

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?
