About Matthew

I have been tutoring for over 10 years, and love helping make complex ideas simple and attainable. I have worked with all grades and ages, elementary through graduate school, and have experience as a tutor for a collegiate Disabled Student Services center (2 years), working with student athletes as a head academic mentor for a Division 1A men's basketball team (4 years), working with elementary students at a top nationwide center (1 year), and teaching weekly classes in algebra, geometry, calculus, ACT prep and chemistry at a private tutorial (3 years).

I have references available, and am available flexible hours Monday through Saturday. I live in Murfreesboro, but am available to travel to Brentwood, Franklin, Nashville, and Smyrna with travel fees.

I can help students who struggle conceptually, as well as work through learning strategies customized to each student. I am experienced in working with both physical and learning disabilities (work with dyslexia and ADD/ADHD).

I am passionate about math, and love helping students conquer what is often considered the most daunting subject and overcome their fear of math!

I am available and would love to work with you/your student, contact me to set up a time!

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.

ACT Math

I have been working with students for several years on ACT prep, and routinely give workshops for students to prepare for specific exam dates. I have worked with students at all score levels, and have routinely seen substantial score increases with my students.

ADD/ADHD

I spent 2 years as a paid tutor at a Disabled Student Service, working 20+ hours a week with students who were diagnosed with learning disabilities (ADD/ADHD), Aspergers, Autism spectrum, and Dyslexia, as well as a variety of physical disabilities (tutored blind students and paraplegics/quadriplegics). I took college training courses on teaching to different learning styles and learning disabilities. I also was a paid tutor for Sylvan Learning Center, and went through their training for ADD/ADHD and learning difficulties training, and have worked with numerous elementary, high-school and college age students with these challenges.

Algebra 2

I love helping students overcome their fear of math, especially algebra! I have completed 27 hours of undergraduate and nine hours of graduate-level mathematics, so I have a broad enough perspective on math to be able to understand algebra in the context of larger applications. But I also have extensive experience working for tutoring centers, at a private tutorial as an algebra 1 and 2 teacher, and for MTSU's Disabled Student Services, so I know how to make math understandable for students of all ages!
