About Matt

I graduated from Virginia Tech in December of 2015 with a Bachelors degree in Physics. I have a very strong background in math and physics/science including topics from basic algebra to geometry and trigonometry to complex numbers to calculus, along with Newtonian mechanics, chemistry and electromagnetism. In high school I took both AP Calculus and AP Physics. I have tutored in the past and can provide effective and engaging tutoring to anyone who is struggling in these areas.

I pride myself in my ability to really connect with my students. Being as I just graduated, I understand the disconnect sometimes between the teacher and student in the classroom. I always teach for true understanding rather than memorization and try to relate concepts to topics that my students are familiar with.

I always ask questions that indicate to me whether a student understands the material we are reviewing rather than "Do you understand this?" or "Does this make sense?" Often students will say they understand just to avoid embarrassment.

I understand that each student has a different learning style and adapt my lessons to fit each student individually. I personally learn best by physically doing things myself however some students are strong auditory learners or strong visual learners. I am very confident in my abilities to help you improve and achieve the academic success you are capable of!

I am flexible in terms of scheduling a time and location. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Great tutor!

Matt is patient and takes the time to make sure his student understands the concept he is addressing. He makes his student feel comfortable about learning the topic rather than feeling pressured.
