About Matthew


Bio

***Expert in teaching and learning with real world experience as a scientist and engineer; your search for a top tutor is over!***

Unlike many tutors, I have BOTH a background in education AND real world experience. My students improve their grades, learn real world applications of the material, and walk away with learning and study skills that will help them for a lifetime.

***Expert in teaching and learning with real world experience as a scientist and engineer; your search for a top tutor is over!***

Unlike many tutors, I have BOTH a background in education AND real world experience. My students improve their grades, learn real world applications of the material, and walk away with learning and study skills that will help them for a lifetime.

I strive to be the most effective tutor on Wyzant in:
*Physics
*Math from Algebra through Calculus
*Fluid Mechanics
*Thermodynamics
*Circuit Analysis

I am currently a Master Instructor at the Naval Academy. I started teaching as a learning skills counselor and Calculus/Physics tutor during my junior year of college. Eventually I became a Chemistry teaching assistant and then continued as a Physics teaching assistant during graduate school. After joining the Navy and completing a tour of duty at sea on a submarine, I taught at Navy Nuclear Power School where I obtained my certification as a Navy Master Training Specialist. I left active duty for the Navy Reserve and took on various civilian positions in the Naval Reactors Program. One of my positions was as an instructor where I taught Math, Physics, and Electrical Engineering courses at the graduate level. I was selected for recall to active duty to teach at the Naval Academy where I taught courses in fluids, thermodynamics, and physics. In 2018 I won the Naval Academy Military Faculty Teaching Excellence Award which honors the best rotational military instructor at the Naval Academy. I have presented at multiple teaching and learning conferences and I am a recognized expert in learning skills and STEM education.

I am a published researcher in nuclear engineering and I have worked professionally operating nuclear propulsion plants. I can connect the topics you are learning to real world science and engineering applications to make the material more concrete and meaningful to students.

With effort on your part and me as your tutor you will see your grades and understanding improve!

Calculus

I have 20+ years of STEM teaching experience and have spent 5 years as a faculty member in the US Naval Academy Mechanical Engineering Department. In 2018 I was recognized as the best rotational military instructor at the Naval Academy. I've tutored calculus since my time as an undergraduate. I've taught courses in vector calculus and taught fluids, thermodynamics, and physics classes that rely on calculus principles. I will not just teach you the math; I will give you tangible examples of where the math applies in the real world and your chosen field of study.
