Hi! My name is Matt and I know what it's like to struggle with a subject (believe me, I know!) and I know how sometimes it can be hard to ask for help, but looking around is the first step! At my most recent tutoring position I met a young man who was failing grade school math; but, together we worked hard and he rose his grade, passed and moved on to the next course. I know that if we work together, with dedication and motivation, you can succeed. I am a recent graduate of UC Irvine with a Bachelor's in Anthropology and a minor in Biological Sciences. Feel free to send me a message and say hi!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

I am a recent graduate from UC Irvine with a Bachelor's in Anthropology. I have taken several Sociocultural Anthropology courses as well as a Linguistic Anthropology courses. The geographical regions that I studied the most were modern Middle East/Central Asia (Post-Soviet Eurasia) and Mesoamerica (Aztec, Maya, Colonial Latin America, etc).

Biology

My favorite biology courses in university (I just graduated!) were in Infectious Diseases and Photomedicine (a really neat course about lasers!). I also participated in a comparative animal physiology laboratory the last two years of undergraduate. I believe a good foundation in Biology requires diligent reading and note-taking; all of which I can help you out with!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring and helping out with K-6 studies since I was in high school (2004). I have had experience with ESL students and am very patient with students who are having trouble with their studies. K-6 is a very important time to lay down a very strong foundation for later education. I am a strong proponent of solid tutoring early in education to prevent any problems in later education!

Couldn't believe it! Exceeded all expectations! — Our girl was struggling with Honors Biology after starting school two weeks late. After a few weeks she was really struggling and we realized that we needed to get some outside help. Matthew taught her for two sessions and her grade improved a full grade in three weeks! We firmly believe that by the semester's end she will have earned an "A" in this subject. Big props to this excellent tutor! ...
