New York University (Biology)
Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (Enrolled)
Hi! My name is Matt. I recently graduated NYU in May of 2015 with Honors receiving a Bachelor’s of the Arts degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and also Child & Adolescent Mental Health Studies. I will continue my education this August as a medical student at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
This past school year, I used my time off to work in a 5th grade math classroom in an underprivileged public school in the South Bronx through the AmeriCorps service program called City Year. Everyday I helped break down the classroom to provide small group and one-on-one instruction before, during, and after school to support struggling students.
In addition to academic support, City Year provided me with the trainings and workshops to become an effective socio-emotional and motivational coach. I want my students to know that, with hard work and dedication, any dream is attainable. I have a passion for learning and school, and I want others to get excited in the same! Connecting with my students and getting them excited to learn is my specialty and that is the difference between myself and other tutors.
Science and math are my strongest subject areas as I scored in the 95th percentile for the Physical Sciences (Chemistry/Physics) section of the MCAT. I’ve tutored informally throughout college, but I am most comfortable helping with high school level sciences and below. In addition, I would love to mentor those students interested in a career in medicine. I can shed light on the confusing medical school application process and provide the information necessary to be ahead of the competition in college. My matriculation into the third most applied to medical school in the country is proof of my academic track record and qualifications.
The past year I’ve accrued more than 1,500 service hours working in an NYC math classroom maintaining my focus list of 15 students. Therefore, in addition to in-class and after-school support, I was responsible for tracking the academic and socio-emotional progress of 15 students throughout the school year.
I’ve played soccer since I was three and continued to play competitively as a member of NYU’s men’s Varsity soccer team freshman year. I stopped playing to focus on school and my dreams of becoming a doctor, but honestly I consider the sport to be a fundamental part of my upbringing. I’ve coached youth recreational
I want my time with students to be as effective and fruitful as possible, so if you have any resources or information that you can provide before hand, please let me know. I am easy to reach and I will respond as quickly as possible. Get started today and feel free to contact me with any additional questions or scheduling inquiries! Hi! My name is Matt.

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.

Everyday I helped break down the classroom to provide small group and one-on-one instruction before, during, and after school to support struggling students. In addition, I also maintained a targeted focus list of 15 students, where I was responsible for tracking their progress and providing academic support aligned with the Common Core standards.
I've been playing soccer since I could walk, and I started playing competitively since I was 8 years old. Throughout high school I helped coach and referee younger kids in summer recreational leagues. As a senior in high school, I helped lead my team to the first Mountain Valley Conference Championship in 13 years. I completed a year, as a freshman, on the men's varsity soccer team at NYU, but I left the team after that year to focus on academics.
