### Matt

I received my Masters in Mathematics from Roosevelt University with a concentration in Actuarial Mathematics. I received two Bachelors degrees from the University of Maryland in Mathematics and Astronomy. I have experience tutoring students at all levels of mathematics, from middle school to advanced undergraduate. I have tutored privately and for Roosevelt University and taught mathematics for a year in Nashville, TN. I believe that an understanding of mathematics is essential and I have given many students a greater understanding and confidence in mathematics. I believe that every student can succeed and I bring that attitude with me to every tutoring session. When I am not doing mathematics I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing the flute.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is that with the proper instruction, every student is capable of succeeding.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I begin the first session with a discussion of where the student is at, what their goals are, and how we can work together to meet their goals.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Show them how to work problems, and gradually have them complete steps until they are comfortable working problems on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I motivate my students using a variety of techniques, including positive feedback, a positive attitude, and gentle constructive criticism.
