Matthew’s first tutoring experience came at ten years old when he taught his left-handed brother to write a cursive “f.” More recently, he specializes in tutoring math, writing, and physics. Mentoring and coaching students to reach the point where they can confidently say “I am good at math” make tutoring rewarding for him as an instructor.
Matthew graduated from Piedmont High School in 2005 and immediately set his sights on a mathematics and English double major at California State University, Long Beach. Despite multiple professors and undergraduate advisers discouraging a double major in such dissimilar subjects, he was able to graduate Magna Cum Laude in with honors in mathematics. Matthew’s passion for math led him to serve two terms as Math-Stat Student Association president in college.
His other interests include physics, football, manufacturing, railroads, and juggling. The last of which made him one of the most recognized faces on the CSU, Long Beach campus during his time there.
Matthew started with ESM in 2014 and tutors students all over the valley, including Sacramento and Granite Bay.
