About Matthew

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. 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.

If you'd like more information about my qualifications and scheduling availability, don't hesitate to contact me!

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.

Genetics

I defended my PhD in Genetics in 2013. In addition to my own research, I was required to take genetics courses as part of my training. I also mentored several undergraduate students during this period.

Organic Chemistry

I majored in biochemistry in university. I took two years of honors organic chemistry. I was also approved to tutor organic chemistry for the following two years and successfully tutored several students in the topic.

Russian

I majored in Russian at a university. This required taking Russian courses all four years in Russian language and additional courses in Russian culture. I also tutored Russian language and received the Russian Studies award my junior year.
