About Matthew


Bio

In my 15 plus years of tutoring, I've had the pleasure of working many students from all walks of life and with a wide range of abilities. My favorite part of tutoring and helping students is being there to witness their "ah ha!" moment. The moment of true and pure understanding. The revelation that it all works, so long as they apply the right tools and concepts when solving a problem.

In my 15 plus years of tutoring, I've had the pleasure of working many students from all walks of life and with a wide range of abilities. My favorite part of tutoring and helping students is being there to witness their "ah ha!" moment. The moment of true and pure understanding. The revelation that it all works, so long as they apply the right tools and concepts when solving a problem.

I had previously worked at a tutoring center, holding homework help sessions on weekday evenings and teaching full on classes on weekends complete with lectures, classwork, homework, tests and quizzes. The subjects in which I specialize are Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus and Calculus.

I've found that when most students struggle with new concepts it is because their foundations are weak. A student's mind is like a toolbox and the skills and concepts are the tools in that box. They must master using basic tools in order to build a birdhouse. My methods first seeks to determine what skills or concepts the student is lacking and then working to mastering those before reinforcing new concepts.

I truly enjoy tutoring and helping students. There are few things I've done that have been as rewarding.

"There's more than one way to skin a cat." Unfortunately, the one-size fits all approach to teaching that students a subjected to in school, (due to limited time and resources), leaves some students out to dry. That's where tutoring comes into play. From Algebra 1 to AP Calculus, I am able convey the concepts of the subject in different ways and from different angles, greatly increasing the chances of having the concept "stick".

I look forward to hearing from you so we can get to "skinning" these cats, and getting them to "stick".
