About Mathew


Bio

I have a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Connecticut and hold teaching credentials in the states of California (single subject mathematics) and Massachusetts (high school mathematics) along with twelve years of classroom teaching experience between those states.

I have a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Connecticut and hold teaching credentials in the states of California (single subject mathematics) and Massachusetts (high school mathematics) along with twelve years of classroom teaching experience between those states.

I have taught many different courses including: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Integrated Math II and III, Trigonometry, Probability and Statistics, Precalculus, Calculus, SAT Prep Math as well as Physics (both algebra-based and calculus-based).

I've never had a student who wasn't willing and able to learn something they thought was really interesting or really important. The mathematics that students are expected to learn to earn their diploma are both interesting and important. No, really, I'm not just saying that. And no, it's not just important because it is a graduation requirement. We live in a world of rapidly changing patterns, trends, statistics and data and we have more of it thrown at us every day. Watch the news, check out what is trending online or look at a billboard. Everywhere we look someone is trying to convince us of something and they are all using numbers to make their point. Understanding what these numbers mean and identifying the patterns and relationships that are hidden in the data is important for everyone these days.

I know from my experience as a student and as a teacher that learning is strongly affected by environment. When the pressure and anxiety of the classroom is gone and students have an environment where they aren't afraid to ask questions, make mistakes or be themselves, great things happen. If you think I might be the the tutor you are looking for then please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Common Core

As a certified classroom teacher, I have been closely following, studying and receiving professional development regarding the implementation of Common Core. I am familiar with both the Common Core standards (mathematics and science especially) and the SBAC testing. I understand how the implementation of Common Core and new standardized testing varies from previous models and am confident that I can help students for whom these changes may frustrate or find challenging to adapt.

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Throughout my career I have taught Algebra 2 more than any other subject. Teaching in a vocational high school for 8 years has helped me develop numerous "real world" applications between a huge amount of career fields and areas of personal interest to the content of Algebra 2. In other words, I can almost always come up with some interesting and relevant context for any skill or concept from Algebra 2 for my students.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

When I took my SAT, I got one question wrong on the entire math section and that question bothers me to this day. I've taught formal SAT prep math courses and tutored many students privately in SAT prep as well. I am extremely familiar with the SAT and PSAT math test, as I've seen, done and reviewed way more past and practice tests than I can remember. I know the content, structure, strategies, tricks an tips and shortcuts and have experience helping students master any/all of them necessary to improve their scores.

Linear Algebra

I hold a degree in mathematics from the University of CT where I successfully took two advanced courses in linear algebra along with several undergraduate and graduate level physics courses including 2 semesters of mathematical methods for applied and theoretical physics which included significant study and practice in linear algebra.

Fantastic Math tutor!

Matt taught my daughter Integrated Math II, she'd been struggling to understand concepts in class all year. Matt used her interests to clearly explain difficult concepts and built her confidence in her own abilities. Thanks to Matt, she's getting A's in math now, and is well-prepared for the final exam.
