About

Matthew

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

I'm passionate about helping students with learning differences because each student is like a different puzzle. Just like every puzzle has different shaped and colored pieces, each student has a slightly different way of "putting things together" in their mind. I love helping students solve their own "puzzle."

What was your path to becoming a provider?

I started off as a high school football and track & field coach. That gave me a glimpse into a future of working with students. This inspired me to return to school, get my Masters in Education, and earn my state teaching license. I truly enjoy helping students get from point A to point B, and I'm looking forward to doing that with Parallel Learning!

What gets you excited about Parallel?

I get excited about the opportunity to help students in such a unique way with virtual learning. Being able to have an impact from far away is a pretty special feeling.
