“**Very helpful**”

Hello! I recently graduated in May 2015 from Stetson University down in DeLand, FL with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Arts in Nonprofit Administration, along with a minor in Music. I grew up in Winter Springs, FL, and graduated from Winter Springs High School as the Valedictorian of my class in 2011. I have been tutoring

Matt is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Matt to get started.

My daughter has only had a few sessions with Matt however, we can see improvement with her confidence and understanding.

Matt helped me review probability distributions for my Mathematical Statistics course. He came prepared with a lesson plan that highlighted the things I should memorize and the things that would be worth exploring through other resources. Parsing the material and suggesting a path has already made my self-study more efficient, which is exactly what should happen when a tutor has done their job. Thanks again, Matt.

Matt helped reinforce areas that I was weak and in and reminded me of tools that I could use to solve equations.

I've never been very skilled when it comes to math and related subjects. Matt was very patient with my mistakes, and provided easier methods for solving complicated problems. I would highly recommend him for anybody looking for help with statistics.

Matt taught me very well and he is a great tutor. He explained things I did not get right away and helped me get a head start on the sections I will be starting this week.

Matt was a great tutor. He helped me understand the material for my upcoming test and answered all of my questions. Highly recommended!

I was taking an online Calculus class. After bombing the first test, I contacted Matt and he began tutoring me the following morning. He had an organized plan to teach me the basics. He was very flexible with his schedule and left his own materials for me to review. He tutored college students while attending Stetson so he was very capable and qualified. I felt so confident on the final because of Matt. I ended up getting an A on the final. Thank you Matt.

Matt has been teaching my friend and I math for the GRE for the past week. Every time we leave, we feel like so much has been learned. He makes us feel so much more confident about taking the GRE. He has also given advice about the test and has lent us his flash cards that he has used and continues to use. He's absolutely great and I would recommend him to anyone struggling with math. He knows his stuff!

Exceptional knowledge of statistics and can easily explain complex topics. Would recommend to anyone in need of help in math.

Elementary Education:

Elementary (K-6th), Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Although I never took the ACT in high school, and I am familiar with the SAT, and given the comparisons between the two tests I would be able to provide guidance in preparing for the ACT as well. I took the SAT test multiple times during my high school years, and regularly performed well in the math section of the SAT, my highest score for which being a 770. I have many useful suggestions for managing time during the test and effectively solving each question given the time constraint.

The rules of algebra are fundamental to any higher math course, and they have almost become second nature for me over the years. I have also recently tutored students in FLVS Algebra I, and am very familiar with the course content in this way, as I would typically guide these students within the particular modules and help them take notes.

The content of Algebra II is also very much fundamental to upper-level math courses, and they have become somewhat second nature to me over the years. I have also recently been privately tutoring two students in Algebra I and II through FLVS, and am therefore very comfortable with the subject material.

I took AP Calculus BC in high school and passed with a 5, and jumped straight into Calculus III as a freshman at Stetson University. For the past three years, I have worked in the Stetson University Math Clinic, tutoring math students primarily in Calculus I and II. Over the years, I have developed a strong understanding of calculus, and would readily be able to assist students with the subject.

I took Ordinary Differential Equations as part of the requirements for my Mathematics Major, and passed the class with an A when I took it my junior year of college two years ago. I took detailed notes in class and saved all of my homework assignments, and in this way am able to look back through my Ordinary Differential Equations binder in preparing for lessons. I also have an Ordinary Differential Equations book which I can use during lessons.

As a mathematics tutor at Stetson University, I had many students come in needing help with Finite Mathematics. I am familiar with the course content, from financial applications to matrix encryption and decryption, and would be able to provide much help in tackling any issues with the course.

I have been playing the tuba since the sixth grade, and therefore have been playing the instrument for 10 years. I was actively involved with band in high school, participating in both marching band and symphonic band, and was a member of the Stetson University Symphonic Band. I graduated from Stetson University with a Minor in Music, and took Theory 1, Theory 2, Music Culture and Music Style and Analysis, tuba lessons, and Symphonic Band and Orchestra during my 4 years at Stetson. I also played piano for four years in high school.

I have been tutoring Geometry since my sophomore year of high school, and continued private geometry tutoring during my college years as well. I am comfortable with the material and able to relay it effectively to the student.

I took the GRE twice in preparing for graduate school applications, and studied for the test extensively using the Kaplan GRE review book. The first time I took the GRE, I got a 168 in the Quantitative Reasoning Section and a 158 in the Verbal Reasoning, and the second time I took the test my scores were 166 and 161, respectively. I have many suggestions for the math section in particular, and also have suggestions for the reading section, including a comprehensive notecard system I used to study for both the GRE and the SAT in high school.

I took Linear Algebra as one of the requirements for my Mathematics Major my freshmen year of college, and passed the course with an A. I took detailed notes in class and saved all of my homework assignments, and would therefore be able to look back on these notes in preparing for lessons. I also have a Linear Algebra textbook I could use during tutoring sessions. For students familiar with mathematical software, I used MATLAB extensively in this class, especially when working with matrices, and would be able to offer suggestions with the MATLAB software as well.

Prealgebra is a course fundamental to all upper-level math courses, and I have internalized all of the prealgebra fundamentals over the years. In this way, I would be able to effectively explain the material, as well as show how it is used in future courses and real-world problems.

I did very well in my Precalculus class in high school, and went on to take AP Calculus BC, which I passed with a 5 on the AP Exam. Given how many components of precalculus are utilized in upper-level math courses, especially calculus, I am comfortable with tutoring the material.

I took the SAT test multiple times during my high school years, and regularly performed well in the math section of the SAT, my highest score for which being a 770. I have many useful suggestions for managing time during the test and effectively solving each question given the time constraint.

For my Master of Public Policy degree at Duke University, I am primarily using STATA to conduct any statistical analyses that I come across. I have become effective at summarizing data in STATA through descriptive statistics, such as through the describe, codebook, and summarize commands. I am also proficient in regression analysis and statistical testing. Recently, I've also explored graphical and visual representation of data in STATA, such as heat maps, tables, scatterplots, and histograms. I have used STATA on a daily basis and would be able to assist any students interested in learning the statistical language.

At Stetson University, I took several courses related to statistics, including a Probability course, an upper-level Mathematical Statistics course, and a statistical Forecasting course. I have also tutored students in statistics through the Stetson University Math Clinic, especially within the last year. Every senior at Stetson University has to complete a senior research project within their major, and I conducted a comprehensive, statistical analysis on the growth of developing countries with regards to exogenous and endogenous economic growth theories, culminating in a 107-page research paper. I have conducted other statistical analyses during my time at Stetson as well, including one evaluating the level of volunteerism and social capital in the United States.

Trigonometry is a course fundamental to many upper-level math courses, including calculus, differential equations, and complex analysis. I have developed a strong understanding of trigonometry, and have developed many useful tricks along the way that make understanding trigonometry much easier.
