About Matthew

Hello students and parents!

My name is Matt, and I'm a math, science, and test prep tutor with five years of experience under my belt. I've tutored math and science at all levels of grade school, from the elementary grade level up through high school, with a little college level tutoring thrown in for good measure. I've also tutored both the SAT and ACT and have extensive knowledge of the key differences between the two tests.

I have a bachelors degree from The University of Texas at Austin. My degree is in biology, with concentrations in cell/molecular biology and computational biology. I graduated in 2010 and spent two years tutoring for a tutoring company in Austin before moving to New Braunfels and becoming a self-employed tutor .

In my tutoring, I employ as many different types of learning (visual, auditory, tactile, etc.) as possible to increase my students' retention of knowledge. I love to use the "Show Me" method, where after teaching a method or concept to a student, I ask the student to either solve a few problems without help or to explain the method to me in their own words.

I can't wait to hear from you!

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.

Algebra 1

I've tutored students of all levels in Algebra 1: students who were behind in the class and trying to catch up, others who were trying to maintain an A average, and even a couple who had changed school districts and were trying to adjust to what the new school's curricula were. Algebra is one of my favorite classes to tutor because there are so many things learned in the class that can be used in everyday life.

Algebra 2

Besides Chemistry, Algebra 2 is the class I've tutored the most students in. Algebra 2 introduces many difficult, new subjects, such as imaginary numbers and conic sections. With so much to remember, it tends to give students trouble. It is my goal to make these subjects understandable.


Biology has been a passion of mine since 8th grade. In high school, I took the Biology AP exam, so I'm familiar with the curriculum. I majored in Biology at UT, with concentrations in both Cell/Molecular Biology and Computational Biology.


Calculus was my favorite class in high school. Some of the topics can be difficult to learn, but much of the later topics are just new applications of old ones.


As a Biology major at UT, I took many different Chemistry courses and developed a deep appreciation for the discipline. In high school, I took the AP Chemistry exam, so I'm familiar with its curriculum.


Geometry can be frustrating to many students because it introduces topics that don't seem to build on what has been previously learned in pre-algebra and algebra. There is an abundance of new vocabulary to learn, and if the class includes proofs, then there are a number of theorems and postulates to memorize. Geometry is an important class for students who want to do well in pre-calculus later on, as it introduces students to trigonometry.


Precalculus is a continuation of both algebra 2 and geometry, as it builds upon topics from each in preparation for calculus. It is one of my favorite math classes to tutor because of its frequent use of graphs and pictures, as well as its introduction to many of the concepts encountered in calculus.
