I have 8 years of college education and have taught high school since 2007. I have 2 degrees: a Bachelor's of Science in Public Financial Management and a Master's in Education with a focus on Business. Although I can tutor in a wide range of topics, my strong knowledge is in basic math, algebra, video editing programs (such as Photoshop, Premiere Pro, etc.) and computer technology. I teach computers and technology in high school.

I can help with studying to learn material as well as describing material so it makes sense to the learner. I can help with study skills and you will see an improvement in performance that can be measured over time by seeing higher scores on testing and on homework assignments. Being a teacher, I know what teachers look for in assignments and reports.

Exactly what we were looking for. — After 3 sessions, I can say that Matt is exactly the type of tutor we were looking for. He is very patient and friendly and my son feels very comfortable with him. I wish we had found him sooner; there is so much ground to cover. I highly recommend him but I don't want to share him with anyone else in the coming 2 years. ...
