Matthew Bowman

Hello everyone! My name is Mr. Bowman and I am a tutor here on Parallel. I have nearly 9 years of experience working in education and this is my 6th year as a State of Michigan certified teacher. I have experience as both an ELA teacher for grades 6-12 as well as my current role as a Reading Interventionist for grades 2-12 over the past 3 years. I have a great passion for building relationships with young scholars and helping them reach their goals. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

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.
