University of Portland (Biology)
University of Wisconsin Madison, WI (PhD)
I am a stay at home dad with four small children (ages 7 and 6, and 17 month old twins) and tutor as a way of sharing my passion for science. I was a biology major and chemistry minor in college and am an excellent tutor for all things scientific. I earned my PhD in cellular and molecular biology focusing on heart development. I enjoy helping students learn that science can be both interesting and fun. Whether you are struggling to understand the concepts or just need a little extra help, I am the tutor for you. I specialize in tutoring any biology or chemistry topics from grade school through college. My schedule is very flexible in the evening and on weekends and I never charge for a lesson unless you are completely satisfied.

Matthew is the most knowledgable and patient tutor for any kind of bio or chem. We have had him as a tutor for the last 3 years and he is amazing. He really cares about his students and is always available either in person, by email or tx. He is always in contact with his students and parents day or night. My daughter and I have worked with other tutors from WyzAnt and you won't find any one better for bio or chem. He is extremely knowledgable, patient, and caring. I doubt you will find a better tutor. He can help with either high school or college classes. I would highly recommend him
Matthew was able to meet my daughter where she is with high school chemistry. Many people know chemistry--it's being to understand what the student needs and communicate with them that sets him apart.
My son says he learns more in one Chemistry tutoring session with Matt than he does all week in school. Matt really takes the time to help my son understand this subject.
Very patient! Taught me how to balance equations in a way that I could understand. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!
Matthew is an excellent science tutor. He really knows the material and works very well with my teenager. He is personable and very knowledgeable in chemistry and the sciences in general. Highly recommended.
I would definitely recommend Mr Mathew for anyone who needs help on chemistry. He explained the material in an easy way which made my daughter feel confident. Mathew is very easy to reach and answers emails quickly. He even gave my daughter his email, n case she has any other questions during the week that he can answer ,free of charge. I will continue to use Mathew for his excellent way of conveying information in an understanding way.
Thank you Mathew again!!
Matthew was prompt and friendly. My daughter felt that he was excellent at conveying information in a manner that made sense to her. He had great suggestions for preparing for upcoming lessons and moving forward. He helped her regain confidence and a more positive approach to the subject matter. Excellent tutor and willing to think outside of the box and go the extra mile.
Matt was a tremendous help in giving my son the confidence he needed to be successful in his honors chemistry class. He was patient, organized and a great listener. I highly recommend him.
I was very impressed with Matt. He tutored my son in both high school chemistry and math. He is very knowledgeable in both subjects and explained the material and how to approach the problems in a way that was easy to understand. My son left the session feeling more confident and having a much better understanding. Matt is a well educated scientist and has applied his scientific knowledge in a research lab in his career. We plan to continue to use Matt for my son's tutoring lessons. Matt is easy to reach and responds to email quickly. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone thinking about retaining a tutor in math and science.
Excellent tutor, easy to reach and very responsive. Did ACT tutoring for my high school senior; had easy rapport with teenager and knew his stuff! Nice guy too.
Just wanted to let you all know how great and helpful Matt has been. He is patient and explains things in a way that really helps. He really wants you to do well and does everything he can to ease your mind and get you prepared. He is awesome.
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.
I have my PhD in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I graduated cum laude with a chemistry minor in college. The chemistry classes I have taken at the undergraduate level include chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. At the graduate level, I have taken additional biochemistry courses.
