EducationMaster's Degree in Organic Chemistry from Oregon State University
ExperienceTeaching organic chemistry has been a passion of mine for the past six years. I’m a full time independent chemistry tutor, both worldwide via Skype and locally in Western Massachusetts. I have an M.S. in computational organic chemistry from Oregon State University and I’m an alumnus of UMass Amherst. Organic chemistry is unique in the way that first principles build on each other throughout the course. I am an expert at breaking chemistry down into fundamental concepts so that students I work with can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. Nobody can make organic chemistry “easy” or provide a magic bullet to get you an “A” but I can equip you with the tools to make it possible.
I’ve helped hundreds of students over the years. Here are a couple of nice things people have written about me:
"Hey Matt! I just wanted to let you know I got my final grade back for organic chemistry and I got an A! Thank you so much for all your help this summer. I seriously would not have been able to get through it without your help!"
“In the past I have had several chemistry tutors but none have helped me as much as Matthew did. He knew all the material on the spot and taught the way a teacher would. He broke down the problems into a manageable way therefore understanding the concept was enjoyable and not strictly memorization.”
HobbiesI enjoy cooking and hiking in my spare time.
