About Matthew

I have worked as a math tutor for the past 7 years and was trained and certified CRLA Level III Master Tutor while studying for my undergraduate degree, so I have worked students ranging from just struggling with a single topic to those I worked through entire semesters of math classes. I'm an applied mathematician so I try to have an application to math topics so that the student can better understand and relate it to their life. I have my M.A. in Mathematics and am working on my thesis for my Ph.D while teaching as an adjunct at Brookdale Community College. I am comfortable tutoring Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry/Math Analysis, Calculus, Probability, Statistics, Ordinary & Partial Differential Equations, Real Analysis, Measure Theory, Numerical Analysis, and Linear Algebra. I have also worked with Abstract Algebra and Functional Analysis too if asked for.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I tutored Algebra I and II for a number of years.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring math for seven years, and I am currently working on my PhD in mathematics.

Calculus

I tutored Calculus I, II, and III for at least 5 years. I have been tutoring math for 7 years, and I am currently working on my PhD in mathematics. I am also a certified CRLA Master Tutor, and I work to equip my students with the tools needed to study/succeed without me. Due to mathematicians choice of "Calculus is King", I work with students to show how their previous classes in the math arc fit together so that they can see important connections to reinforce mathematical skills and thinking as well as showing how Calculus will be important in possible future math courses.

Chemistry

I have tutored the mathematical side of Chemistry for 3 years as well as taking courses in General Chemistry I & II, Physical Chemistry, and Physics at the collegiate level as well as passing my AP Chemistry Exam from the high school level.

Differential Equations

I have taken and passed Introduction to Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, Partial Differential Equations, Applied and Functional Analysis (both prove the existence and/or uniqueness of solutions) from Fresno Pacific University and Claremont Graduate University. I was trained in pedagogical methods while at FPU and am a certified CRLA Level III Master Tutor. I have been tutoring for 7 years with students ranging from high school to graduate school.

Linear Algebra

I have taken Linear Algebra I & II from Fresno Pacific University and Advanced Linear Algebra from Claremont Graduate University. I was trained in pedagogical methods while at FPU and am a certified CRLA Level III Master Tutor. I have been tutoring for 7 years with students ranging from high school to graduate school.

Saxophone

I have played and performed on the saxophone for 13 years and took lessons for 6 years on the saxophone, even playing in Carnegie Hall. I play Art and Jazz Music.
