About Matthew

I have eight years experience teaching general, organic, inorganic, and advanced organic synthesis labs at the University of Arizona. I have experience preparing and presenting lectures to up to 96 students, and supervising up to 24 students at a time in the lab. My duties also included grading lab reports, tutoring students, and writing, proctoring, and grading examinations. As a result, I am very familiar with both the lecture side homework and tests, and the laboratory side instrumentation and lab reports of the subject matter.

In addition, I have eight years of one-on-one and small group tutoring experience in general and organic chemistry. I am accustomed to and comfortable with tutoring students of all knowledge levels. As a result, I am not discouraged by having to explain concepts in several different ways, and am familiar with alternative perspectives to tackle the same subject matter.

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.
