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.*

Great Job

You are doing a great job with our son. The last time that we had a tutor did not work out so well. I think demeanor and your soft humor makes Lance feel very comfortable. We look forward to a continued relationship with you as he continues to improve in his Math. Thank you for your tireless effort to help us achieve this. Dave and Elaine

He did an awesome job! he really helped my daughter in just an hour. Great tutor. He worked great on helping my daughter understand what the math problem was actually asking for.

Matthew arrived on time and was very patient!

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! Thank You!

Rena, 3 lessons with Matthew

Good 1st 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!

Philip, 1 lesson with Matthew

Good Rapport

My teens respond very well to Matthew. He has been, and continues to be, the perfect fit for my sons.

Rita, 26 lessons with Matthew

Hire this gentleman!

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.

Jennifer, 13 lessons with Matthew

Patient and professional.

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.

Experienced Tutor

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!

Gloria, 1 lesson with Matthew

Great Tutor !

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!
