About Matthew


Bio

I recently retired from a a successful career as an engineer at AT&T. Before AT&T, I went to graduate school at Northwestern (Math Ph.D.) and UT-Austin (Operations Research). I taught math to college students for several years.

Working on an individual basis, it's possible to see where the student is getting stuck and concentrate on that. As much as I like teaching classes, there's limited opportunity to help each and every student. The individual interaction is what I like most about...

I recently retired from a a successful career as an engineer at AT&T. Before AT&T, I went to graduate school at Northwestern (Math Ph.D.) and UT-Austin (Operations Research). I taught math to college students for several years.

Working on an individual basis, it's possible to see where the student is getting stuck and concentrate on that. As much as I like teaching classes, there's limited opportunity to help each and every student. The individual interaction is what I like most about tutoring.

Long experience has given me perspective and helped me focus on the main concepts. Math can be challenging because your brain has to decode a bunch of symbols. That processing can make it difficult to maintain a train of thought from beginning to end of the problem you're solving. I can help keep you grounded.

In the past, I've worked as a software developer using other languages. In my most recent position at AT&T, I did data analysis using Python for a year. Usage all day, every day during that period really solidified my grasp of the language, along with essential packages such as numpy and pandas.

These days, data is king- and there's lots of it. Increasingly, this will be the case in every industry.

I can help you develop the math skills you need in our data-driven world: statistics, which allows you to summarize data in meaningful ways; calculus and linear algebra, which are essential in machine learning.
