University of Minnesota - Twin Cities (Mathematics BS)
Hello, my name is Matthew and I was born and raised in Minot, ND. I have just returned from traveling with my father for a year after earning my B.S. in Mathematics specialized in Physiology. I have hands-on experience tutoring in paid and volunteer situations to a wide-ranging age of students with positive results. Throughout public school I helped my fellows with math at their request. During college, I was employed as a Peer Assisted Learning Facilitator. The idea was to teach students they can teach themselves, and show them they often know the material better than they think. My niece went from fidgeting and deflecting, to excited and leading our math study session. During these experiences, I had some of my pupils say, "I never would have passed without you!" In reality, they went beyond "just passing," and even excelled and gained confidence. Being a part of someone's learning experience has always been very satisfying.
I aim to simplify mathematics and scientific knowledge in order to communicate effectively to any student of any age and learning style. Everyone is individual and has their own needs. From my own personal experience teachers often communicate poorly, or even “forget” to teach at all, and may even complicate the simplest of foundational concepts, leading to a false fear of the subject and doubt in a student’s own natural ability to learn, leaving for no firm structure to build more advanced knowledge upon. Let’s find the roots of the confusion. My mission is to teach you that and to show you you can learn and may even love science and mathematics. Feel free to message me with any questions.
I have extensive coursework up through graduate level mathematics courses and a broad scientific knowledge including: physics, general chemistry, physiology, and biology. I acquired my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics specialized in Physiology in December 2015 from the University of Minnesota with a 3.424/4.000 GPA and Deans list honor roll. I have experience being requested to explain subject matter throughout many of my classes both in public school and in college. I was hired has an integrated tutor for the college algebra course where I created lesson plans and held weekly tutoring sessions. I know it does not matter what I know, but rather, how I can communicate the subject to you in order for you to have understanding. I will take your situation personally, and take the time to learn what you need to learn to fill in the gaps in your understanding.
Feel free to contact me with questions and what concerns you personally. My schedule is flexible and I can meet in person (preferred) or online.

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.
