Whenever I am working with a student, I strive to make learning easy and fun, and above all to explain concepts in ways that you can relate to. Not everyone learns the same way and that is okay! whether you or your student needs to clarify concepts or in depth work to bring them up to speed, my teaching style is tailored to each individual, using a pace that is appropriate. I strive to help students understand the core concepts and building blocks necessary to succeed not only in their current class but in the future as well.
I am a West Point graduate with a Master's degree from MIT, as well as bilingual in French and English. I taught Calculus, Mathematical Modeling, Differential Equations and Probability/Statistics for three years at the United States Military Academy (West Point). I can tutor any Math or French subject area from elementary math to college level, as well as help with reading, writing, and communicating.

Matt was very prompt and prepared at all sessions. At the 1st session, he assessed my son's needs in Algebra 1, pinpointed areas of weakness. Matt started to work on those areas. After each class, Matt left a detailed message about exactly what he worked on with my son, as well as what my son knows, and what he needs to continue to work on. He was flexible as far as helping with homework, going over past exams, and preparing for future exams. We were very pleased with our months of working with Matt.
Matthew has established a great rapport with our 16-year old son, asking questions, and explaining concepts clearly to him. Our son feels more comfortable with the material. Matthew is prompt, polite, and friendly as well.
Matthew has built up a great rapport with my son within a very short time. He knows his subject well, not only in the theoretical sense but also the practical sense too. Highly recommend.
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 got an A+ in Discrete Mathematics in College and an A in the graduate course 6.431 Applied Probability at MIT last year. I am familiar with all areas of discrete math, including graphs, number theory, probability, counting, set theory etc.
I'm experienced teaching introductory college-level probability of statistics to both students with prior AP-stats and those with no experience. I have experience using Excel and the R programming language to enhance stats learning.
