“The Cool Cat” Tutor’s Story

Thanks for visiting my website. I’d like to take a quick second and introduce myself. My name is Matt “The Cool Cat” and I’m willing to be your son or daughter’s educational guide (a.k.a. Tutor).

A few of my credentials to show that I’m not just the average Joe down the street who is asking for some side money.

First, I’ve been volunteering with the SSP Foundation for close to a decade (10 years) now and have been a mentor to their students — who range in age/grade-level (from K-12 and beyond). I have worked with the S.T.E.M. Robotics programs and also the Scholars program. The Scholars program helps High School students ranging from Freshmen to Seniors start thinking about attending, applying, getting accepted and paying for college. I helped them with some of their summer workshops – especially the English portion. I also helped arrange special guest speakers and more. As for the robotics program, I helped the students work on their presentation skills; and I also helped with other tasks as need.

Second, I was accepted by The University of Arizona (UA)’s Graduate College of Education for the Secondary English Education track.

Third, after completing a Bachelor of Arts degree (Journalism) from the UA, I worked for a year as a professional Journalist and editor. I supervised a newsroom and worked on government and education-related stories.
