This is how 32 referees rated Matthew:
I have several personality traits that would make me a great physics tutor. I am very patient with everybody I interact with, a necessary skill if you're going to present new material to a student. I can also teach critical-thinking skills as opposed to just giving students the answer, enabling them to solve similar problems on their own in the future. I would also describe myself as kind, understanding, and trustworthy.
I gained experience working with students at a Boys and Girls Club, so I know how to connect with younger learners. I studied Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University before moving to Boston for grad school.
I believe in identifying and addressing the root cause of any learning obstacles that arise as opposed to trying to manage the symptoms of the issue. I also believe in tackling problems step-by-step to make it easier to determine where things could have gone awry.
