About Matt


Bio

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 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 spent much of the last 20 years teaching and practicing data and information modeling in clinical care and other health-related settings. I have used a variety of formalisms including relational models (SQL), no-SQL, hierarchical, ontologies, production rules, and various knowledge representation standards, such as Arden Syntax, Guideline Modeling Language, and GELLO.

Knowledgeable & Patient Tutor

Matt is an excellent tutor! He is patient and very good at explaining concepts. Whenever I struggle with a concept, he is able to break it down for me. I definitely recommend him for any projects you need help with.

Pam, 8 lessons with Matt

Fantastic tutor

Worth every single penny. Very knowledgeable and patient. I learned a lot. He knows what he is talking about. I wish every instructor was like him.

KARO, 3 lessons with Matt

Amazing, would have failed without his help

He helped with challenging SQL and Oracle assignments. Very happy with his help this semester and would recommend him to anyone, he assisted with a class required for my MBA. We worked together all semester and he was very flexible and punctual, he never canceled a single session

Caren, 10 lessons with Matt

great teacher

Great dude . Knows what he’s talking about. Would highly recommend if you are doing any work in coding. Goodluck in your studies !

Henry, 1 lesson with Matt

Exactly what I needed

Matt was able to help me wrap my mind around the logic of SQL. I understood all the parts, but could not put much of the knowledge into practice. 2 sessions was all I needed. Aced my final! Thank you Matt!

Gene, 2 lessons with Matt

Database

Matt is exceptionally well versed. Super helpful, 3 hrs with him I probably learned more about sql/database than I did all semester from the instructor. With Matt’s prior sting as a professor, it’s safe to say Matt cares about his students and understands the pressure and rigors of student hood. Matt’s knowledge and guidance will only help in this process. Did I mentioned he’s exceptional in other areas such as Math, precal, trig, geometry. Computer programming? Logic? Yea take him, you’re missing out if you don’t.

Sam, 4 lessons with Matt

Excellent tutor!

Matt is the very articulate, patient, knowledgeable, and cares. A great mentor, he focuses in explaining in a simple and concise way so you can understand everything. The very best of the best.

Jan, 3 lessons with Matt

Great tutor

Matt is an awesome tutor! Personable, he makes tutoring comfortable, he’ll figure out how to solve challenging situations, and he’s honest if he doesn’t remember how to do something because it’s been too long since he’s done it! I highly recommend.

Database ER Modeling

The meeting was great! He had relevant stories for his examples, was very easy to talk to and was accurate with his assistance. It made the time fly by...I will we using him again.

Anthony, 1 lesson with Matt

Very knowledgeable

Matt taught me how to breakdown my quire statement line by line to better find my errors if any. I really appreciate how Matt took time to explain why it was placed certain ways.
