About Matt

I have more than 20 years experience working in engineering and informatics specializing in mathematical modeling, knowledge engineering, data/information modeling, ontologies, programming, and databases.

I have spent the past 20 years designing and building computerized decision support systems. These systems are a combination of production rule systems, logic trees, and logical graphs (cyclic and acyclic). I have taught decision making at the graduate level to informatics students. I have also studied analog and digital circuit design.

I have been an instructor / mentor / tutor for students from first grade through graduate school. I prefer traditional in-person interactive sessions, but video chat / Skype / FaceTime sessions after initial session are acceptable.

I had a math emphasis (7 courses) during undergraduate education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.
