Mattias is from Madison, WI, and has a passion for education reform. He has participated in numerous protests involving education during his junior year of high school. His educational activism grew at Stanford University, but he did not actively consider teaching until he transitioned from volunteering as a tutor to working as a tutor coordinator charged with directing the curriculum and actively monitoring the learning of a group of second grade students at a local Bay Area nonprofit, East Palo Alto Tennis and Tutoring. He hopes working with Blue Engine will help him to find his place in the education world and is grateful for the opportunity to meet and work with so many wonderful students and teachers.
