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 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.Vicki, 1 lesson with Matthew

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

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.Kurtis, 4 lessons with Matthew
