About Matthew


Bio

Tutoring largely started out as a hobby for me. I enjoyed helping my fellow classmates learn material and be successful while at the same time learning from them. That cooperative nature of tutoring, working together to achieve student-inspired goals, is what turned it into a passion.

Tutoring largely started out as a hobby for me. I enjoyed helping my fellow classmates learn material and be successful while at the same time learning from them. That cooperative nature of tutoring, working together to achieve student-inspired goals, is what turned it into a passion.

I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Washington with a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Economics. As a math department tutor, I was given the opportunity to help college students of all levels, from basic college math to upper division courses and statistics. I have also done private tutoring for the last ten years with all ages, ranging from elementary students to adults. I am comfortable tutoring any level of math, including test prep, as well as economics.

My teaching philosophy is simple: you get out what you put in. Lessons will be structured based on the idea of student-driven learning. This means that students will be encouraged to develop clear goals, and we will work to achieve those goals based on a learning framework that will involve hands-on and real world examples. Students will be challenged, but not overwhelmed. Tutoring is supposed to help students achieve success with the work they already have, not create more work for them unnecessarily.

I strive to be flexible when it comes to scheduling sessions. I have a 24-hour in advance cancellation policy, but I offer make-up sessions and rescheduling. I am willing to travel to the student or to an agreed upon neutral location.

Please feel free to contact me for further information, to schedule sessions, or to see if I am the right fit for you. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Elementary Education

Common Core

Common Core

In California, common core state testing is done with the SBAC (also called the CAASPP). In the spring and summer of 2015, I served as a test grader for the CAASPP and was eventually promoted to the position of scoring leader. As a grader, I was required to be very familiar with the Common Core standards and the test structure. As a scoring leader, I actively coached and supported test graders, leading to an intimate knowledge of Common Core testing and how to explain it to others.

As usual another awesome session

Feeling so good after this tutor session with Matthew. I definitely know so much more than I did 2 hours ago. I feel so much more confident about my upcoming test. He explains everything so clearly, and I was really able to learn a lot of info in two hours!

Raquel, 7 lessons with Matthew

Helped

Matthew helped me with some economic calculations and reviewed problems on my homework. The session helped me to comprehend the principles that I need to learn to succeed.

Lance, 8 lessons with Matthew

Very patient

He makes it easy to understand for me. Math doesnt come easy but he sure makes it easy for me. Thank you Matthew its only our 2nd time but i understand so much better.....

Odelia, 10 lessons with Matthew

Knowledgeable and friendly

Matthew is helping my son with his calculus homework. My son found Matthew's way of explaining the math problems easy to understand and would like to keep Matthew as his tutor.

Araceli, 2 lessons with Matthew

Knowledgeable, helpful tutor.

Matthew was extremely patient with my daughter. She was very comfortable with Matthew. He let her think things through and stepped in when necessary to teach and explain. Defintley will be booking another session.

Kathy, 16 lessons with Matthew

Awesome Tutor

I started tutoring with Matthew a few weeks into my Algebra 2 course & I was completely lost & drowning quickly in the course... Without Matthews help I would be failing the course & doomed to taking it a 2nd time... Matthew is very knowledgeable in all concepts of Algebra & is able to explain them with ease & understanding... I highly recommend Matthew as a tutor in Algebra 2!!

Heidi, 7 lessons with Matthew

Great tutor

Matthew is very patient. He makes sure you grasp the concept before moving on. He makes you critically think about the problems being presented. He is a great tutor and I would recommend him to others in need of a math tutor.

Christina , 6 lessons with Matthew

Math never clicked. I highly recommend Matthew

There are the students who never studied and aced the test; and then there are those who study for four hours every night and got a D+. (I assume you can figure which one I was). Matthew taught me how "MY" brain works and how to retain information better. His expertise will give you many "Ahh haa" moments. He will help you learn how to focus to not overload your brain. I highly recommended Matthew if math never "Clicked" for you. Easily one the best investments I have done for myself and my future.

Brandon, 4 lessons with Matthew

Great tutor. Very knowledgeable

Matthew is very helpful with my microeconomics course. The class was very difficult for me to follow in the short class time. Matthew was able to further explain things I didn't catch from my teacher. With only a few sessions I've improved my grade drastically. I plan to continue to use him through my final and future classes as needed.
