About this tutor

I'm qualified in mathematics. Completed a 4 year Business degree with a focus on Statistics, ranging from probability and classical statistics to bayesian modeling. I'm well prepared to tutor subjects ranging from the fundamentals of statistics (normal distributions, t-tests, graph analysis) , to more complex subjects (poisson and binomial distributions, gamma and beta mixing distributions)

Served as a teaching assistant in a rigorous Mathematical Foundations of computer science course which focuses on probability, problem solving logic, mathematical theory, proof structuring, and algorithms.

Completed 4 year major in Computational Biology, excelling in classes such as Physics, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Genetics among other subjects. Perfect score on Biology, Chemistry, and Physics SAT subject tests. Placed 100th percentile on the MCAT.

I love STEM subjects and I especially love to teach them. Whether it's walking through new subjects, or developing problem solving skills, I enjoy watching my students grow.

    High school Physics and Chemistry Matthew has been very helpful to our son. He has also been quite flexible in working with our son’s often unpredictable schedule. We hope to continue to work with him in the future if he remains available.

    THE BEST! Highly recommend! I've worked with dozens of tutors over the past few years, and Matthew is by far the best! When I first started my college statistics class this semester I was often confused and quite frankly disliked the subject all together. During my first lesson with Matthew, he explained all of the problems thoroughly and gave helpful insight into tackling each problem. He listened carefully to my questions and even provided useful practice problems on the spot. I now feel so much more confident heading into my statistics final and truthfully I now enjoy the subject all together. I look forward to working with Matthew again in the future and HIGHLY recommend him!

    I am a non-traditional medical school applicant who attempted to self-study for the MCAT. However, after one month of studying and seeing almost no progress (scoring under 500 on three consecutive practice exams), I decided to reach out to a tutor for help. Matthew stood out to me instantly due to his impressive resume, positive reviews, and very reasonable hourly rate. His teaching style allows him to explain complex concepts in simple terms, and he showed me new ways to approach passages that made a massive difference in my score. Additionally, he is a very nice guy, fun to work with, and genuinely cares about your success. Over the course of one month, Matthew helped me raise my score from a 497 to 513. Needless to say, I cannot recommend him highly enough!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to spend a few minutes getting to know my students, where they're from, what they've been working on, and where they hope to go with tutoring. If it's test prep, how have you studied in the past and what can we develop for the future. If it's problem help, what's your background in the content and where can I fill the gaps. If it's learning, how do you like to learn and how can we structure a lesson plan. 

Ultimately I use lots of visuals and I love to joke around and connect with my students.
