About Matt

I currently tutor in the mathematics department at CSUN and tutored the developmental math program helping incoming freshman gain confidence in themselves to execute the basic fundamentals of math. I tutored last fall and currently tutoring in the Math Lab with higher levels of math. I have previous experience in teaching when I coached a basketball city league team, and to me good teaching skills and practices translates to all subjects, as I would teach basketball the same way I teach math.

I understand the necessity for the fundamentals and that math is a skill, not a given talent. It takes persistence and practice. Since my father is a mathematician himself, I have a different perspective on how math is learned and taught.

I have played basketball competitively since I was eight years old and have played for, worked with numerous professionals who have bestowed knowledge on to me. I played all high school and had a short career at the junior college level. I believe because of my youth I can relate to a lot of young players which helps when trying to communicate to them.

If I could describe my teaching style it would light and calm. I believe students respond better to positive reinforcement and when mistakes are made, it's about working with the student and working them through the process and having the gain confidence in their own ability so they can perform.

I have taken the whole Algebra series in high school in honors and Calculus throughout my college career where the fundamentals are reinforced and are absolutely crucial to success at high levels of math.

I have taken the whole Algebra series in high school in honors and Calculus throughout my college career where the fundamentals are reinforced and are absolutely crucial to success at high levels of math. Algebra 2 only expands and builds in the the series it becomes more crucial the fundamentals are solid. Algebra is essentially the foundation of math that can propel a student farther in their math performance.

Basketball

I played for and have been coached by people who played professional basketball. I have played at the junior college level, and have previous coaching experience in a city league.

Precalculus

Like all math I have taken, I have a succeeded and was top student while taking it. In fact, I was able to skip pre-calculus in college because I tested out of it.

Trigonometry

In Calculus, the trigonometry is such a important part and is important to master the basics that you learn in pure trig class to succeed in higher levels of math. Along with all my qualifications, I tutor this math as well at Cal State University Northridge.
