BS Mathematics (2009) GPA 3.7
BS Computer Science (2009) GPA 3.7
In 2009 I received my bachelor of sciences in Mathematics and Computer Science. Earlier in 2007 I started the certification process to teach high school math. When it came time to do my classroom observations I decided to switch directions and instead put all of my efforts into private one-on-one tutoring. I had been a part-time math tutor throughout my last 2 years of college. I also worked at Sylvan so I had experience. Now I have over 6 years of in-center and private in-home tutoring.
Mathematics has always been a passion of mine and helping students understand it is my goal. I am very patient and my teaching style is straight-forward and traditional. I work one-on-one with students and teach by example. Once the student understands the concepts practice is a must.
Some other credentials of mine include being on the Dean's List 9 semesters in college and graduating with program distinction. I have a BS in Mathematics and a BS in Computer Science. My 2007 Math Praxis scores were 185/190.
Typically I see students 1 to 2 hours per week in their home. I help students complete homework, understand concepts, review lessons, & study for and correct tests/quizzes. I also help students get organized and teach study skills. I mainly tutor in Upper Township, Ocean City, and Somers Point.
I look forward to helping your child succeed!

Matt is awesome. He has been working with both of our kids for 2+ years and has been great. Our daughter is 17 and Matt has helped her through Geometry, Algebra II and Pre-Calc (she has never received a grade lower than A- in any of these classes). Our son is 14 - he is kind of a math whiz and has a 98% in Pre-Algebra. Matt sees our kids weekly and has never missed a session. He has been flexible and very professional. He provides honest feedback and has a great rapore with both of them. We would give Matt 6 stars if that was an option!
My daughter met with Matthew twice before her final exam and we were both impressed. She said that he helped her tremendously and attributes her grade of 90% on the final from the help she received from Matthew. We are using Matthew for her ACT math prep.
Matt is very professional and VERY prompt. Our daughter started bringing home Fs in geometry this year, which was alarming because she is usually an A-B student. A friend recommended Matt, and we are quite pleased with the progress our daughter has been making. Matt is good about engaging with her on her level and identifying the gaps she has in her understanding. He's also good about communicating back to us what he notices -- for example, when he noticed that our daughter had failed to retain some concepts they had discussed the week before. When asked by us, she admitted that she had not studied her math that week. We feel lucky to have found him and would recommend him to anyone.
He is great - organized, responsive, flexible. We have had two sessions with him so far and plan to continue.
Matt tutors both my sons and I only hear great things about him. Both of my sons (freshman and Junior) tell me they learn something new everytime they meet with Matt. I will recommend Matt to anyone looking for the best. glo
Matt has been an awesome tutor for both of my daughters! He is extremely professional and is always on time. I love the fact that he comes to us; makes scheduling so much easier. Thank you Matt:)
Matt established a great rapport with my high schooler and did a wonderful job tutoring him in Geometry. I wish we would've hired him earlier in the school year! I would recommend Matt to anyone.
Very knowledgeable and personalable. Was able to help my son understand complex problems right away. Always prompt and flexible with scheduling.
We are incredibly thankful for Matt! He started tutoring our daughter at a low point in her Alg 2 semester. Matt was able to not only help her understand Algebra, he helped re-build her confidence. He was prompt, respectful, professional, and always upbeat. We've already told Matt that we'll use him for Trig in the fall.
Matthew was a great tutor. I needed help last minute with a College Algebra Final Exam and Matt came over to my apartment with less than 24 hours notice and he was able to teach me a whole semester of Algebra in 2.5 hours! Before Matt, I took my practice quiz and received a 33%. After my tutoring session I took my exam the next morning and received 80%. Matt was very patient and understood the subject matter. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone in need of Math help!
Matt has helped my son on several occasions! He is thorough and supportive and my rather picky son is so relieved to have good help (finally)!
Matt has done a wonderful job with my daughter. He is on time and always professional. My daughter's geometry grade has improved during his time with her. I would recommend Matt to any parent looking for a math tutor! Matt knows his subject and uses great teaching strategies.
Love love love the progress my son has made since we found Matt! He is professional, he was able to gain a rapport with my son, making it easier for my son to feel confident and want to learn. He comes to our home which makes my life so much easier and the one on one time has been invaluable. He has been such a blessing!
Matt was able to quickly identify my son's weaknesses and help him with his prealgebra. After just a couple of weeks my son's confidence in his math ability has returned.
Matthew picked up on a lot about our son right off the bat. He worked well with him, and established a great rapport in a short period of time.
He is very professional, truly knowledgeable, and my daughter feels more comfortable in Geometry because of him. Thanks for your patient help!!
