At Vanderbilt, I serve as a Teaching Assistant, where I help students learn tough concepts and work through problems in a variety of courses.

I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Vanderbilt University. My interest in learning economics over the past decade has dovetailed into a passion for teaching economics, statistics, mathematics, and programming. At Vanderbilt, I serve as a Teaching Assistant, where I help students learn tough concepts and work through problems in a variety of courses. As a tutor, I have achieved a 5-star average rating from over 500 hours on Wyzant's platform alone, and have tutored for over eight years in various other capacities. My teaching philosophy is informed by the intimate learning settings I experienced attending Colorado College for my undergraduate education. Courses were small, which allowed a student like me needing support to get the attention that allowed me to thrive. The preparation I went through in college, subsequent courses in grad school, and my tutoring experience combine to provide me with the knowledge and experience to provide exemplary assistance to struggling students in economics and related quantitative fields. My experience tutoring has reaffirmed that students learn in a variety of ways, while also revealing to me common areas that students tend to get stuck on. Tutoring students across the country and abroad has given me a unique perspective into how courses vary across universities and colleges of various caliber and has provided me with a wide arsenal of material to aid in the learning process. At stages where students get stuck, I have alternative explanations to the ones received in lecture and help them to work through the notes by pointing out where these topics are discussed. Indeed, it is crucial to help students figure out how to decipher the key takeaways and therefore feel empowered to effectively study on their own in the future. These are the types of learning I encourage and have found success with. I tutor students at all levels, including high school, undergraduate, masters and professional degrees, and PhD. I have a very flexible schedule and am happy to help; please reach out!

Great Tutor

This is a great tutor! He was able to breakdown the concepts for me, walk me through their applications slowly and successfully complete the assignment together. I would highly recommend him!

Yousef, 3 lessons with Matthew

Very knowledgeable!

Matthew is very knowledgeable when it comes to statistics! He helped walk me through confusing concepts and problems from class. I would definitely recommend him for any stats class!

Jenna, 2 lessons with Matthew

Passionate about helping you learn

Matthew helped me work through graduate level econometrics problems on statistics and regression analysis. I appreciated that he didn't only help me solve the problem, but he taught me HOW to solve the problems, so I could later apply those techniques to different proofs. As someone who has little knowledge of stats, I appreciated Matthew's patience when he explained complex econometrics concepts. I'm definitely booking another lesson with him!

Kara, 1 lesson with Matthew

Helped w/college Econometrics exam prep

My son needed help with his college Econometrics midterm and Matthew had the knowledge and the patience to help him get ready for it. Scheduling another lesson!

Darcy, 1 lesson with Matthew

Amazing Tutor!!

Matthew was absolutely amazing, he was extremely patient with my gaps in the material, and explained the concepts in ways that were easier for me to understand. There is nothing better than a tutor who understands that every student can’t be taught the same way, and I appreciate Matthew so much for realizing this and sticking through until I understood the material!

Skyler, 4 lessons with Matthew

Excellent conceptual and Practical Tutor

Mathew provided great clarity and understanding of the material. As a new student to Econometrics, who is interested in learning the material in depth to conduct future research, he was able to expand on the theories and assumptions while providing the tools for the interpretation of the various models conceptually and practically. He is very patient and was willing to work closely with me at my current level with the emphasis and intension to build a better understanding going forward. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seriously looking for assistance in better understanding Economic concepts Econometrics theories and models.

Joseph, 7 lessons with Matthew

Great tutor!!

Matthew was very patient and went over key concepts for my upcoming economics test! He made sure to not continue until i understood each part in depth. I highly recommend

Jordan, 1 lesson with Matthew

Exceptional Tutor!!!

One of the best economics tutors you will find! Very smart guy who will take time out of his day to prepare for your lesson. He explains things well, is patient, and pushes you (in a good way) to learn the material. I had previously failed my micro econ theory class working with a different tutor on wyzant but I worked with Matt and passed this semester with a B.

Myles, 13 lessons with Matthew

Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and patient!

I have been struggling with the math in grad school level economics and Matthew helped me out a ton. He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the material in my assignment. Not only did he help me figure it out the correct answers, but he helped me understand the underlying math theory behind it all. He offered to send me additional study material that would compliment what I'm learning as well. I would highly recommend Matthew, and I will for sure use him again in the future.
