About Matt

Greetings,

My name is Dr. R. and I hope to help you on your journey through the lifelong process of education. I completed my undergraduate studies in 2006 (Desales University, BS biology, minor in chemistry) and my doctorate studies in 2012 (Palmer College of Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic).

Currently, I work at a clinic in Bath and hold an adjunct faculty position at a university teaching human structure and function (anatomy).

I am comfortable tutoring math subjects up to pre-calculus and science subjects up to senior level courses in high school (aside from anatomy). I have team and one-on-one coaching experience in baseball (especially pitching) but would also give soccer and basketball lessons if needed. I am also very comfortable around Mac and PC-based computer systems and MS Office applications, including MS Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

I enjoy working with students and athletes, and love to see the improvements made by students/athletes as they work toward their goal. I am open to filling learning gaps a few times per year, or working weekly to achieve greater goals.

I wish you luck in the future. Please feel free to contact me for help.

Dr. Matthew R., DC

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.

Anatomy

I've been teaching anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology at the college level since 2012. As a chiropractor, I've taken numerous anatomy, physiology, and neurology courses over my career as well. I don't just teach it, I use it, and applying it everyday has helped me learn how to boil it down to the most important concepts.

Baseball

I have team coaching experience at the high school and college level (1 year each) and about 6 years of camp instruction/ one-on-one lessons, mainly dealing with pitching. I pitched in the 2003 DIII CWS and played for the LV Catz in the ACBL from 2003-2005. I focus on pitching mechanics, sport-specific strength, and nutrition to develop my clients.

Biology

I studied biology and chemistry in undergrad and currently teach kinesiology and A&P to college sophomores and juniors.

Nutrition

I have taken multiple biochemistry and nutrition/toxicology courses while earning my undergraduate and doctorate degrees.

Physiology

I've been applying physiological concepts clinically and teaching A&P at the college level for 3+ years.

Study Skills

I currently teach Anatomy at the university level, but more importantly, I was a student; twice, in fact. While earning my undergraduate degree, I was also on the baseball team. Spending 20-40 hours/week on the field while working on my degree obviously required some major planning. While earning my Doctor of Chiropractic degree, I worked about 20 hours per week, while taking, on average, 30 credits per term (as opposed to the 12 credit hours most universities consider full-time).

Very enthusiastic and effective — Our son needed some additional help with his honors biology course. After reviewing Matt's background and spending some time getting to know him during a brief phone conversation, we felt that he would be a good fit to help our son. After meeting him in person and observing his approach and enthusiasm when working with our son, we were even more confident that we made the right choice. He is perso ...
