Matt Berti

I am a certified teacher of Computer Sciences, Histories, Geography, and Academic Research. As teacher and counselor, I have prepared hundreds of students for academic life abroad, culminating in being appointed leader of the AP Computer Sciences program and AP Capstone research program, an intensive academic research course and one of the first such programs introduced in China. I'm an expert on computer program modeling, active learning techniques, and inquiry-based learning through primary source documents.
