About Matt


Bio

I like to help students understand and enjoy math! It can be fun to solve a math problem and it makes you think better. I have tutored and taught math for many years, helping students learn subjects from algebra to critical thinking to engineering calculus. I have taught at OU, OCCC, and Rose State and can help you face-to-face, on-line, or on the telephone. My background is in public affairs, computers, communications, and computer software.

I like to help students understand and enjoy math! It can be fun to solve a math problem and it makes you think better. I have tutored and taught math for many years, helping students learn subjects from algebra to critical thinking to engineering calculus. I have taught at OU, OCCC, and Rose State and can help you face-to-face, on-line, or on the telephone. My background is in public affairs, computers, communications, and computer software. I have Masters degrees in mathematics and computer science and was in the Air Force for 20 years.

I'm flexible as to hours and meeting locations and guarantee you will be satisfied with my efforts to teach and help you.

I listen, which is the most important thing for effective communication. I can explain things several different ways until I connect. I'm low key and know that interaction and leading the student to figure out the problem step by step are crucial steps to learning math.

Let me know how I can help you. Contact me if you want to talk before making a decision. I'm available on short notice usually.

He is so nice to help my daughter with her calculus online on Sunday. Because our computer's audio was not working.he kept talking in the phone and taught online at the same time.he is so patient and encouraged her everytime when my daughter got a correct answer.this is really important and helpful for my daughter.after 1 hour tutor, my daughter feels she has found some of her self-confidence back again. Thanks a lot.Matt!You are a good tutor! I would recommend him to everyone who is looking for a math tutor.

Yonghong, 1 lesson with Matt

Great Professor, patient, experienced, smart and kind.

This was our first lesson, and it went really good. I have been having a hard time with finding a good tutor and Mr. Matt is great. He explains anything I point out that I'm having problems with right away. We covered more than I expected in just 1 tutoring session. I wish he teaches me in class, calculus would be way easier. Looking forward for more lessons so I can improve my grades.

Amjad, 1 lesson with Matt

He is very patient and knowelegeable

He makes sure you understand how to do the problems and if you don't he breaks it down to help you understand it.

Crystal, 7 lessons with Matt

Excellent calculus tutor

Matt is my calculus 3 tutor. I have not had math in a very long time and he was able to work with me, giving me the background information I needed. He's patient and knows his subject very well. Worth it.

Chalita, 3 lessons with Matt

Patient and Wise.

Matt is a wonderful, patient, teacher and his knowledge of mathematics covers a very wide range of subtopics. I am very happy to have met up with him here, and I plan on learning an awful lot from him in the very near future.
