Hi. My name is Matt Kitchen, M.Ed. and I started this website 8 years ago. When I started teaching almost 10 years ago I had a lot of tear filled moments wondering if this was the right profession for me while I struggled to teach at a high poverty, urban school. I hit my fight or flight moment and I decided to fight and get better. Over the past 10 years I have read books, researched pedagogy, attended conferences, spoken at conferences, written lessons, trained teachers, and put my heart and soul into becoming the best math teacher I could be. I have seen and experienced the worse, so I was determined to build and put into place the strategies and skills required to be an outstanding teacher. It has paid off as I have become a very accomplished teacher in my area where my students typically double the state test passage rate of urban school students. I have been recognized as having one of the highest growth rates for my students in the state of Ohio. Do I think I am the best? No. But every year I continue to try and become so, which has allowed me to amass a great deal of knowledge and resources that I know so many teachers could use. Join today and partner with me to continue our pursuit of A Perfect Math Classroom.
I offer a full money back guarantee because I stand behind my lessons and I am fully confident in them. I am confident because I use them when I teach and thousands of teachers around the world have also used them with great success. That being said, if you use the lessons found on Make Math More and they do not increase the engagement in your class and you honestly feel like your students did not gain anything from them then email me at the email address at the top of the page and I will return your money to you even if you already downloaded lessons (requests must be made within 30 days of purchase). I process all refunds within 24 hours so buy with confidence.
