I am a college graduate from the University of MD, College Park with a BS in Decision Information Sciences and Statistics. I also minored in Art Studio. I have a diverse passion in the arts (drawing, painting, music, poetry) as well as a well rounded education in math, science and English.
I'm great with adults and children and am currently an event social planner in the Baltimore area working with people every day. I have a great smile and, being an Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts, have acquired an aptitude towards helping others.
I'm also professionally teaching Pre-GED math and have had two students already receive their GEDs, with four students registered. No students have failed from my class. I also had three students score 100, 99, and 98 recently on their tests.
*For those who might wonder about the few lower ratings: The students didn't understand how the rating system works and I had been asked back many times after the first session. WyzAnt does not allow changes once submitted.* I am a college graduate from the University of MD, College Park with a BS in Decision Information Sciences and Statistics. I also minored in Art Studio.

I offer per/hr discounts for multi-hour sessions as well as multi-student discounts.
Matthew is really building my daughter's confidence. She leaves her sessions each week with new skills and strategies to use on the SAT test and in math class.
Thanks to Matthew's tutoring and my daughter's hard work, she was able to increase her SAT Math score by 100 points! That is quite impressive. She continues to meet with Matthew and has increased her Math Analysis grade one letter grade!
Matthew arrived on time and was very patient! He taught my 11th grade daughter some tricks to help her improve her math skills on their first lesson!
He did a nice job in the first session with my son. Certain bugs in thinking was ironed out during the 1st lesson. Nice work!
My teens respond very well to Matthew. He has been, and continues to be, the perfect fit for my sons.
Matt has provided a unique perspective on learning, providing an insight into how my kids learn. Grades have definitely improved, but more importantly they are learning how to learn, including relaxing.
Matt is a great teacher! My 10 year old son really likes him and looks forward to their sessions. I was looking for someone to just go over some general math ideas to help my son with "math sense". I have a really busy schedule and Matt is great at taking the lead on things that they should go over which is perfect for what I need right now. He is very flexible, always on time, and gives appropriate feedback after each lesson.
Matthew got my son so engaged, he was still working on some geometry practice questions even after he was gone. Nice start, my son enjoyed him very much!
I really learned a lot of new techniques for solving math problems! I was able to learn concepts that can help me in everyday tasks as well! He was able to break down certain things that I didn't understand and that really helped me. He was a great tutor!
Really understands math and provides real life examples with a good sense of humor to make learning more relevant and enjoyable
Matthew was great, he had patience for a very talkative eight year old who only wanted to discuss video games. Thanks for making it fun as well as a learning experience.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been playing chess for most of my life and have been able to teach people on the fly. I am an active participant on gameknot.com which I have been playing for over 5 years. I just tutored my first student in chess and it went quite smoothly!
I minored in Art Studio. I concentrated in black & white media, and I understand perspective as well as art theory as it pertains to Socrates.
I have been tutoring children for over 2 years now, mainly in mathematics. I'm already approved in elementary math and include some exercises in writing and language as well. I have great intuition in solving the issues children have in learning, especially in attention spans.
I have been a GED teacher for 2 years, a tutor on WyzAnt for 2+ years and have successfully taught students in taking the SAT and GED. I have 6 students taught by me who have earned their GEDs and have raised the scores of 3 students in their SATs.
I currently have 8+ years of experience playing volleyball. I have been playing a rec league for three years, and am now into my second season as captain of a B league that runs a 5-2 scheme with a labraro.
