About Matthew H.

Hi!

I am a professional mechanical engineer based in north San Diego county.

I can help teach you or your child all the skills that you'll need to thrive as one of the analytical minds that are so vital in the world today. Whether you're in high school and looking to prepare yourself for a future in STEM, or are in college and want a tutor to help sharpen you up, or are enjoying the world outside academia and looking to learn the newest tools or improve your English speaking skills, I'd like to help you keep moving forward.

I absolutely love math, engineering, physics, speech, and most especially music.

My day job is to analyze power plants. I study all the complex systems that mesh to run these mega-machines with the goal of creating a completely virtual copy of the power plant. It's sort of like creating a giant virtual robot. This gets used to improve the plant systems and it provides a virtual power plant for operators to hone their skills on.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California San Diego Jacob's School of Engineering in 2014.

Matthew is great. I highly recommend him. He worked with our son on AP Physics and Trig. 2-3x a week for the school term. Matthew is dependable, he shows up on time. He is flexible- works with our changing schedule. Communicates- confirms and reworks schedule conflicts easily via text. But most of all, Matthew is patient, he takes the time to explain and teach, he is focused on helping student to understand concepts. He cares about your student's success.
