About Matthew

I have three passions in life: running, math, and helping people. Nothing is greater than the moment when a problem or concept 'clicks' for one of my students. I have a BA in Math from UC Berkeley and 6 years of tutoring experience which give me a great foundation for helping students.

I prefer tutoring one-on-one so I can communicate with my clients effectively and find individualized strategies to relate the material. I have experience tutoring Middle School, High School, and college students in all levels of Math including Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, and Statistics.

I believe it is not only my responsibility to help a student improve their grades, but to also help them develop a sense of confidence in his/her ability to solve math problems that they can carry forward in their academic career.

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.

Algebra 1

I have worked with many students on Algebra 1 over the past 3 years. This can be a challenging class, but I have the experience and the patience to sit down with a student and find a way to relate the material to their previous knowledge and interests.

Algebra 2

I have worked with many students on Algebra 2 over the past 6 years. This can be a challenging class, but I have the experience and the patience to sit down with a student and find a way to relate the material to their previous knowledge and interests.

Precalculus

I have six years of experience tutoring high school students in precalculus. In addition to helping students with the subject matter, I provide graphing calculator training as well.
