Greetings,

My name is Dr. R. and I hope to help you on your journey through the lifelong process of education. I completed my undergraduate studies in 2006 (Desales University, BS biology, minor in chemistry) and my doctorate studies in 2012 (Palmer College of Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic).

Currently, I work at a clinic in Bath and hold an adjunct faculty position at a university teaching human structure and function (anatomy).

I am comfortable tutoring math subjects up to pre-calculus and science subjects up to senior level courses in high school (aside from anatomy). I have team and one-on-one coaching experience in baseball (especially pitching) but would also give soccer and basketball lessons if needed. I am also very comfortable around Mac and PC-based computer systems and MS Office applications, including MS Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

I enjoy working with students and athletes, and love to see the improvements made by students/athletes as they work toward their goal. I am open to filling learning gaps a few times per year, or working weekly to achieve greater goals.

I wish you luck in the future. Please feel free to contact me for help.

Dr. Matthew R., DC

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.

Baseball

I have team coaching experience at the high school and college level (1 year each) and about 6 years of camp instruction/ one-on-one lessons, mainly dealing with pitching. I pitched in the 2003 DIII CWS and played for the LV Catz in the ACBL from 2003-2005. I focus on pitching mechanics, sport-specific strength, and nutrition to develop my clients.

Nutrition

I have taken multiple biochemistry and nutrition/toxicology courses while earning my undergraduate and doctorate degrees.

Study Skills

I currently teach Anatomy at the university level, but more importantly, I was a student; twice, in fact. While earning my undergraduate degree, I was also on the baseball team. Spending 20-40 hours/week on the field while working on my degree obviously required some major planning. While earning my Doctor of Chiropractic degree, I worked about 20 hours per week, while taking, on average, 30 credits per term (as opposed to the 12 credit hours most universities consider full-time).
