About Matthew

I have professional tutoring experience as both a private tutor for families in the Rochester community and as a tutor at Huntington Learning Center in Pittsford. Additionally, I have been a full-time math teacher with experience in both middle and high schools for over two years.

I am NYS certified in Math Adolescent Education and have a bachelor's degree in Math from SUNY Geneseo. I am also currently working toward my Master's degree in Education at SUNY Brockport.

I have a passion for math and teaching, and I genuinely enjoy working with students to support them in reaching their educational goals. Please contact me for more information and availability!

I have experience teaching every type of math between 7th grade subjects and Calculus. I also have experience as a professional SAT- and ACT-prep tutor. Additionally, I received a perfect score on the Math ACT when I took the test as a student.

I have a fun and relatable approach to teaching Math. I think it's important to try to explain Math in new and interesting ways to make learning as easy as possible.

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 have experience teaching Algebra 1 at Hilton High School. Additionally, I have been a full-time math teacher with experience in both middle and high schools for over two years. I am NYS certified in Math Adolescent Education and have a bachelor's degree in Math from SUNY Geneseo. I am also currently working toward my Master's degree in Education at SUNY Brockport.

Calculus

When I was in college I actually helped a professor teach a Calc 1 class. I helped out during class hours and I would hold study sessions twice a week where I would reteach the material we learned that week. I had an average of 5 students per session. I also took AP Calculus in high school and received a 5 on the AP exam.

While the Common Core was being designed and implemented, I was learning about the changes it was bring in my classes at SUNY Geneseo (One of the top teaching schools in New York). I also have experience teaching Common Core Algebra, as well as the 7th and 8th grade mathematics curricula under the Common Core. I also have experience grading the Common Core Geometry and Algebra Exams. I also have experience tutoring Common Core Geometry and Common Core Algebra.

When I graduated high school I received an Advanced Regents Diploma due to my over 90% average on all of the Regents that I took in high school. I have taken the Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Spanish, and English Regents. I have also have experiencing tutoring Regents Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. When it comes to my techniques tutoring Regents courses, I focus on building the confidence that students generally have in math in order to increase achievement and reduce anxiety in class and during tests.
