About Matthew

All while attending school, math made sense to me. I would always been helping friends understand the concepts in the most basic ways possible. Most often, not understanding a single concept can make the entire course seem difficult. I want to help. For my undergraduate education, I attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign with a B.S. in Math and Chemistry. Throughout my undergrad, I worked as a tutor through the math department. This consisted of holding group tutoring sessions for ten hours per week.

For my Master's Degree, I attended Roosevelt University and earned an M.S. in Math with a concentration in Actuarial Science. I currently work in petroleum chemistry, so I use math and chemistry everyday. Thus, most of the coursework I've taken throughout my education has not been lost due to lack of use. I also find that having a job that is hands-on with my education makes it easier to provide real-world examples. This often makes learning a concept easier. It is rewarding to helping people grasp a concept that they have found challenging to understand on their own.

I do the best that I can to help students best relate to what they are doing. Once the concept is grasped, any problem of that type can be solved easily. I like to start off with the most basic of problems, gradually increasing the difficulty to understand where a student is having a disconnect with the work. From there, it is easy to pinpoint what needs to be worked on.

If you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me. I'd be more than happy to help!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
