“**Fantastic Math tutor!**”

I have eleven years of full time classroom experience and fifteen years of experience tutoring middle school, high school and college students. I have a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Connecticut and hold teaching credentials in the states of California (single subject mathematics) and Massachusetts (high school mathematics). I have

Matt taught my daughter Integrated Math II, she'd been struggling to understand concepts in class all year. Matt used her interests to clearly explain difficult concepts and built her confidence in her own abilities. Thanks to Matt, she's getting A's in math now, and is well-prepared for the final exam.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Throughout my career I have taught Algebra 2 more than any other subject. Teaching in a vocational high school for 8 years has helped me develop numerous "real world" applications between a huge amount of career fields and areas of personal interest to the content of Algebra 2. In other words, I can almost always come up with some interesting and relevant context for any skill or concept from Algebra 2 for my students.

As a certified classroom teacher, I have been closely following, studying and receiving professional development regarding the implementation of Common Core. I am familiar with both the Common Core standards (mathematics and science especially) and the SBAC testing. I understand how the implementation of Common Core and new standardized testing varies from previous models and am confident that I can help students for whom these changes may frustrate or find challenging to adapt.

I hold a degree in mathematics from the University of CT where I successfully took two advanced courses in linear algebra along with several undergraduate and graduate level physics courses including 2 semesters of mathematical methods for applied and theoretical physics which included significant study and practice in linear algebra.

When I took my SAT, I got one question wrong on the entire math section and that question bothers me to this day. I've taught formal SAT prep math courses and tutored many students privately in SAT prep as well. I am extremely familiar with the SAT and PSAT math test, as I've seen, done and reviewed way more past and practice tests than I can remember. I know the content, structure, strategies, tricks an tips and shortcuts and have experience helping students master any/all of them necessary to improve their scores.
