Since joining WyzAnt, I have tutored chemistry, physics, algebra, and SAT math preparation. I also served as an adult educator for GED preparation as well.

I have taught Secondary students (grades 7-12) pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and Algebra II and trigonometry and am licensed to teach in Utah. Since joining WyzAnt, I have tutored chemistry, physics, algebra, and SAT math preparation. I also served as an adult educator for GED preparation as well. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and trying to find new ways for students to grasp concepts. I thoroughly enjoy math, science, and history and believe all can and should grasp the central concepts of reasoning and problem-solving.

I retired from the US Air Force in 2009 after serving 26 years as a preventive medicine officer. I served throughout the world in a variety of assignments from installation health and safety officer to clinic commander to occupational and environmental health chair at the US Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine. I also taught occupational health and safety at the undergraduate level as adjunct faculty at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

I look forward to helping students succeed in subjects that I consider essential to life in the 21st century.

Excellent geometry tutor

Matthew is an excellent math tutor. He is patient and thorough and genuinely wants to help me understand geometry! His tutoring has helped me build confidence. Thank you!

Laurie, 3 lessons with Matthew

Awesome Tutor!

Matthew was extremely helpful with my algebra and geometry. He was very patient with a warm personality while explaining the problems in detail, and shared some pointers for me. I appreciated how he gave me step by step review of the lesson and this made me feel much better. He's an awesome tutor and I highly recommend him.

Algebra 11. He was very patient and took his time in showing me what I needed to do . He helped me review for a quiz and give me pointers on how to do problems

Connor, 1 lesson with Matthew

Easy explanation

Matthew teaches me geometry. He explained very well and simple easy to understand. He also had great personality and was very polite. I would for sure recommend him. Thank you.

Lenka, 2 lessons with Matthew

Excellent personal skills while utterly professional... tailored his teaching style to my son's learning issues. Overall nice guy

Continued respect, professionalism and personality... respected my son's needs and learning style. Matthew made my stressed out and somewhat defensive, unwilling 11th grader feel respected and took advantage of what my son did know upfront so he wasted no time or money on either end. I am extremely satisfied and although my son did nothing to enjoy the process, he did respect and engage with Matthew personally and really appreciated him and wanted to continue his tutoring sessions.

Elizabeth , 6 lessons with Matthew

Geometry & Chemistry

Matthew has been working with my son for a couple of months. I love his patience with him. He explains things thoroughly to him. My favorite is when he gives me a detailed review of the lesson. Awesome tutor.

Great Geometry tutor

Matthew was extremely helpful! He have my daughter a different perspective and helped her get past a stumbling block. She finished the lesson by saying, “now I get it.”

Holly, 1 lesson with Matthew

Excellent Tutor

My son and I have been struggling with Math since 7th Grade. Matthew was amazing. He was able to go through the lesson with my son and it was as if the light bulb came on! THANKS.

Colin, 20 lessons with Matthew

FANTASTIC!

Matt helped my daughter with Math 1 and after just one hour lesson she said "I learned so much more than I have learned in 2 months!" She was thrilled and so am I because her confidence is restored! I/we highly recommend Matt!

Wendi, 31 lessons with Matthew

Knowledgeable and friendly demeanor

Matt is very knowledgeable and has a calm demeanor. My daughter enjoyed her first session and is more optimistic about her success in school. She has been contemplating transferring out of Trigonometry but I think she is feeling better about staying in Trig and pushing through it with Matt’s help.
