About Matthew


Bio

I've been tutoring and teaching since I was in College. In college, I tutored many different science classes, ranging from biology to chemistry to biochemistry. In addition, I helped students prep for the science sections of exams such as the MCAT and SAT subject tests in chemistry and biology. I was also a teaching assistant for graduate-level molecular biology courses while in grad school.

I've been tutoring and teaching since I was in College. In college, I tutored many different science classes, ranging from biology to chemistry to biochemistry. In addition, I helped students prep for the science sections of exams such as the MCAT and SAT subject tests in chemistry and biology. I was also a teaching assistant for graduate-level molecular biology courses while in grad school.

Through these experiences, I've found a love for teaching and tutoring and helping my students grasp difficult topics. I love the challenge of coming up with new ways to explain concepts and ideas to my students.

As a biochemistry major in undergrad, at Muhlenberg College, and a genetics graduate student at Harvard, I've taken many science math courses throughout my educational career and succeeded at them, so I'm confident I can help students do the same.

Additionally, I've been working with students wishing to improve their scores on the SAT chemistry and biology tests, the SAT math section and the ACT math and science sections. I've received outside training and have been working with several test prep companies in addition to tutoring test on my own over the past 2 years. I have seen my test prep students consistently improve their scores and achieve their desired scores.
