About Matthew


Bio

Hi, I'm Matt! I am a second-year at UCSD and I am looking to help high schoolers with their science and math coursework during this time of difficulty. As COVID-19 has caused many schools to turn to online learning, I understand that many educators are having trouble adapting their curriculum to fit online learning. Having experienced this first hand, I can relate to the frustration of instructors being unclear or unhelpful during online classes.

Hi, I'm Matt! I am a second-year at UCSD and I am looking to help high schoolers with their science and math coursework during this time of difficulty. As COVID-19 has caused many schools to turn to online learning, I understand that many educators are having trouble adapting their curriculum to fit online learning. Having experienced this first hand, I can relate to the frustration of instructors being unclear or unhelpful during online classes.

Regarding my experience, I volunteered as an after-school tutor during my off-season and working as a freelance tutor for 2 years, I am experienced in working with high schoolers.

Throughout high school, I got A's in all my math classes. Having exhausted all my high school's math courses, I took Calculus 2 and 3 at my local community college.

In addition to biology and chemistry being strongly connected to my college major, I am experienced, having tutored many students in high school in mostly AP Chemistry. In addition, I received 5's on both these exams and As in their respective classes.

As of recently, I have switched my major to computer engineering. As a result, I am well-versed in OOP, including Java.

I want to make my student's learning experience as fruitful and enjoyable as possible and am open to any suggestions. As I am always home, I am always easy to reach and will respond to any message within an hour or less. Feel free to contact me to schedule a lesson or if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!

Very Pleased with Matt's Help on AP Chem!

Matt was great. I have booked for more sessions! He came prepared and ready to help me fill in the gaps. I look forward to future sessions. He knows his stuff.

Kim, 2 lessons with Matthew

Very Understanding and Engaging

I had a tutoring session for AP Chemistry with Matthew, and he was extremely patient and listened intently to all of my questions. I also appreciate that he made sure I was engaged throughout the session by asking me questions as well. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!

Marissa, 10 lessons with Matthew

prepared and positive

He continues to work well with our daughter. Conscientious about preparing to work with her and positive throughout the session.

Karen, 6 lessons with Matthew

Prepared and patient tutor

We had a great first AP Calc tutoring session with Matthew and we really appreciated how prepared he was with the lesson, taking time to review the worksheet ahead of time. My daughter felt like she understood the concepts better after working with Matthew and appreciated that he was able to explain things in different ways until she comprehended.

Knowledgeable and Patient; Checks for Understanding

Matthew Z. was well-prepared and knowledgeable about the topic. He was patient, but the pacing was a little fast. When I told him I understood material, he checked for understanding and moved on, which was good.

Karen, 6 lessons with Matthew

Patient tutor

He seemed very knowledgeable in the subject chemistry! He sees what you know already and works from there. I submitted lesson for the week and understood most of it.

Hipatia, 1 lesson with Matthew

Knowledgeable and helpful

My son thought he was a cool tutor and will have more lesson with him He appeared to care about his student and tried to explain until the confusion is resolved

Wendy, 6 lessons with Matthew

Great Chemistry Tutor

Matthew taught my son honors chemistry. He presented the material in a way that my son could quickly grasp and retain. They were able to cover a lot of problems in an hour. My son thought he taught him exactly what he needed to know and feels very confident about his upcoming test. I would highly recommend Matthew.
