Marco Matias - Teaching Associate

Marco Matias is beyond thrilled to be joining the Mar Vista team for the 2015-2016 school year! He was born in Chicago, Illinois and moved to Los Angeles to serve as an AmeriCorps Member for a non-profit organization called City Year in 2014. Marco obtained his BS in Psychology from Loyola University Chicago, and will be enrolled in Pepperdine's Masters of Arts in Teaching program starting this fall. During his undergraduate career he did research with autistic students in the elementary sector, which ignited his passion to work with students as an educator. He then gained more experience working with middle school students in South Los Angeles serving as a tutor, role model, and mentor. He is so excited to be working with the students here at CWC-MV and is looking forward to witness the growth of all his students and more.
