Bio

Hello! I graduated in May 2015 from Stetson University down in DeLand, FL with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Arts in Nonprofit Administration. I graduated in May 2017 with a Master of Public Policy from Duke University, focusing on quantitative analysis, affordable housing and poverty policy. I am now a Research Associate II at the Urban Institute in DC.

Hello! I graduated in May 2015 from Stetson University down in DeLand, FL with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Arts in Nonprofit Administration. I graduated in May 2017 with a Master of Public Policy from Duke University, focusing on quantitative analysis, affordable housing and poverty policy. I am now a Research Associate II at the Urban Institute in DC.

I grew up in Winter Springs, FL, and graduated from Winter Springs High School as the Valedictorian of my class in 2011. I have been tutoring math since my sophomore year of high school. During my time at Stetson University, I worked as a student tutor for the Mathematics Department for three years, tutoring calculus, probability, statistics, and finite mathematics. I also tutored independently, tutoring middle school and high school students in Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus. During my time at Duke, I served as an Econometrics Teaching Assistant, and took the advanced statistics curriculum. As you can tell, I love numbers, and I want you to as well!

Beyond my background in math, I have several other interests. I have been a musician since the sixth grade when I first started playing the tuba. I have a passion for volunteering and nonprofit organizations, and have spent much time with Habitat for Humanity in particular, both in the office setting and on build sites as well. I enjoy running, biking, community bands, ALL the podcasts, and new experiences. My friends would describe me as friendly and goofy, as I never give up the opportunity to reference random Youtube videos in every day conversations, and revel in making others laugh. I love tutoring, and enjoy helping students accomplish their goals.

GRE,

GRE

I took the GRE twice in preparing for graduate school applications, and studied for the test extensively using the Kaplan GRE review book. The first time I took the GRE, I got a 168 in the Quantitative Reasoning Section and a 158 in the Verbal Reasoning, and the second time I took the test my scores were 166 and 161, respectively. I have many suggestions for the math section in particular, and also have suggestions for the reading section, including a comprehensive notecard system I used to study for both the GRE and the SAT in high school.
Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

I graduated with a Bachelor of Mathematics in 2015 from Stetson University, and a Master of Public Policy from Duke University in 2017. Over the years, I have become proficient with navigating and using Excel, including topics such as formulas, data visualization, pivot tables, and data analysis. I am now at the Urban Institute as a Research Associate II, contributing statistical analysis to projects on affordable housing and homelessness using Excel and other statistical software packages.

STATA

STATA

For my Master of Public Policy degree at Duke University, which I obtained in 2017, I primarily used STATA to conduct any statistical analyses that I came across. I have become effective at summarizing data in STATA through descriptive statistics, such as through the describe, codebook, and summarize commands. I am also proficient in regression analysis, statistical testing, and data visualization in STATA. I co-developed a STATA workshop for all incoming first-year students in my program not as familiar with STATA. I am now at the Urban Institute as a Research Associate II, and regularly use STATA for the various projects I work on.

Statistics

Statistics

I graduated in 2015 from Stetson University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, and took several courses related to statistics there, including a Probability course, an upper-level Mathematical Statistics course, and a statistical Forecasting course. I tutored students in statistics through the Stetson University Math Clinic for three years as well. I graduated from Duke University in 2017 with a Master of Public Policy, a degree requiring substantial statistical proficiency, and served as an Econometrics Teaching Assistant for a semester. Now, I am a Research Associate II at the Urban Institute, conducting various statistical analyses on various affordable housing and homelessness projects. I am comfortable with most statistical concepts, from basic descriptive statistics to more complicated regression analysis and other advanced areas.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I graduated from Stetson University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. The content of Algebra I is very much fundamental to upper-level math courses, and the subject has become somewhat second nature to me over the years. I am 100% comfortable with tutoring the subject, and have years of experience tutoring students in both Algebra 1 and Algebra II.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

The content of Algebra II is also very much fundamental to upper-level math courses, and they have become somewhat second nature to me over the years. I have also recently been privately tutoring two students in Algebra I and II through FLVS, and am therefore very comfortable with the subject material.
Calculus,

Calculus

I took AP Calculus BC in high school and passed with a 5, and jumped straight into Calculus III as a freshman at Stetson University. I worked at the Stetson University Math Clinic for three years, tutoring math students primarily in Calculus I and II, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in 2015. Over the years, I have developed a strong understanding of calculus, since it is often the foundation for other topics, such as statistics. I would say calculus is among the top three of subjects I am most proficient tutoring in, if not the highest.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have been tutoring Geometry since my sophomore year of high school, and continued private geometry tutoring during my college years, as well as at the Stetson University Math Clinic.

Great tutor!

I have been working closely with Matt this semester as I struggle some with math and need to pass my current math class in order to transfer to my University of choice. Matt has been with me every step of the way and I am very encouraged by the progress I am making and the grades I am earning.

Dawn, 24 lessons with Matt

Matt is a great tutor!

Matt is working with my as I study for the GRE, and he is very knowledgeable on GRE math. He has helped me make some important realizations already and I feel like I’ve learned tricks/information that I hadn’t learned while taking prep classes. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone as a GRE tutor!

Angela, 6 lessons with Matt

Accommodating and Patient

This was my first calculus session with Matt and I am pleased with the assistance. After listening to my tutoring needs, Matt quickly assessed familiarity with the material and tailored explanations of the content. He made recommendations for reading/ practice between sessions and provided reasonable expectations for follow-on lessons.

Mike, 23 lessons with Matt

Highly recommend

Matt is a very knowledgeable math tutor. Highly recommend if taking college math and need clarification on subjects. We reviewed statistics 2 college course material. He helped me with an assignment and exam review helping clarify concept. Recommend.

Sabina, 17 lessons with Matt

Matt, a kind and knowledgeable tutor...

Matt actually prepared a sample exam for me and reviewed the pertinent subjects I am expected to have mastered. After taking his pseudo exam, I feel much better prepared for my final!

Janet, 13 lessons with Matt

Excellent tutor

Matt is tutoring both of my kids, one in Geometry, the other in Statistics. He knows both subjects inside out, he's patient, and he explains things clearly. Great tutor.

Patient, Funny, and Knowledgeable Tutor

I'm currently in the process of studying for the GRE. Matt and I covered the math section. He helped me to realize that this is material I already know but because I haven't practiced in years, it seems daunting. He was very patient, helpful, and kind. He also knows his stuff! If you are looking for a GRE tutor or a math tutor, I would recommend Matt.
