About Matt


Bio

Hi. Thanks for checking out my profile. I have honors Bachelor's degrees in history and art history from Johns Hopkins University and a Master's of food science from Heriot-Watt University (Scotland). I was drawn to tutoring because simply love explaining concepts to people. I am also lucky enough to know first hand how large an impact a teacher or tutor can have.

Hi. Thanks for checking out my profile. I have honors Bachelor's degrees in history and art history from Johns Hopkins University and a Master's of food science from Heriot-Watt University (Scotland). I was drawn to tutoring because simply love explaining concepts to people. I am also lucky enough to know first hand how large an impact a teacher or tutor can have.

In addition to having done formal coursework in mathematics, I spent three years as a data monkey for investment banks, so algebraic equations and Excel were pretty central to my life for a while. In my current role as a technical consultant for the distilling industry, I use algebra to perform a myriad of calculations for clients. When explaining mathematical concepts to students, I like to use real-world examples to help make them relevant, and often draw on my knowledge of food science (there is a lot more math than most people realize), sports and finance to due so.

A strong knowledge of biology is crucial to success as a food scientist. I have a firm understanding of human and animal anatomy, particularly digestion. As my professional and academic specialty is fermented beverage production (e.g. brewing and distilling), I have an expertise on the biology of the plants and microbes commonly used in the industry.

I am happy to travel within much of New York City and have a very flexible schedule, but please note that I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I take great pride in the work I do and realize that the choice of tutor is something that should be taken lightly. I am more that happy to discuss individual needs and curriculum prior to the first lesson to ensure a good fit.

I look forward to meeting you,

Matt

Art History

I have an honors BA in Art History from Johns Hopkins University, and I also studied the subject for a year in Ireland at University College Cork. I specialize in the Italian Renaissance and insular manuscripts. My thesis was on evidence of direct Coptic influence in the Book of Kells. When tutoring in the subject I place a very strong emphasis on formal analysis and historical context.

American History

I have an honors BA in History from Johns Hopkins University, and I also studied the subject for a year in Ireland at University College Cork. My thesis was on the role of the Irish diaspora in the Civil War. When tutoring the subject, I employ amusing anecdotes to create a narrative and engage my students. For higher level students, I focus on how to conduct historical research. This entails finding and evaluating sources, using them in an effective fashion, and writing a well-structured paper.
