Tutor Personal Information

Name: Matthew K.
Gender: Male   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Matt Klima, and I am searching for an opportunity to tutor students after school and on weekends. I am twenty-two years old, and, last May, I graduated from George Mason University with a double major in anthropology and history, a 3.57 GPA, and a total of 137 credits. In addition, I successfully completed several literature courses that aided me in honing my ability to read critically and write well.

Since early December, 2007, I have been substitute teaching in Fairfax County and Alexandria. Through this experience, I have learned how to successfully teach middle school students and high school students in many subject areas. In college, I learned advanced skills in analysis, research, and writing, yet I also feel confident when teaching basic grammar and math. In short, I feel that I have the passion and the skills necessary to successfully teach students with specific needs. Over the past two and a half months, my fondest experiences have been my one-on-one interactions with individual students who require special attention.

Lastly, I believe that my relative youth is a strong asset and that this trait, in conjunction with my personality, endows me with the ability to reach certain students more successfully than many other educators.

Thank you for your consideration in this regard,

Matthew W. Klima
