I graduated from the University of Washington in 2021 with a Bachelor's Degree in Informatics and work in the Software Engineering field. I specialize in Full-Stack Engineering which includes working on databases and building out front-end/back-end technologies such as websites, mobile applications, and server-side functionalities. At University, some of my relevant coursework included various computer science and mathematics topics such as Advanced Multivariable Calculus, Linear algebra, Data Structures & Algorithms, Advanced Algorithms, Front-end development, Back-end development, and Android development. In my free time, I enjoy audio mixing/engineering, songwriting, music production/theory, and digital art. I also spend a lot of time on LeetCode to enhance my problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. I am flexible and very understanding of students' needs. I know that everyone learns and gets inspired in different ways, and I am adept at adapting my teaching based on what works best for the student. I believe everyone is capable of learning if they put their mind to it and I am passionate about helping knowledge seekers learn and achieve their goals. My goal with tutoring is to teach the ability of self-learning, which I think is the most important skill there is in many facets of education, work, and life. Ideally, once a candidate has worked with me for some period of time, I would not only make sure they come to a point where they are confident to take on any task they need to learn and master it all on their own regardless of what that is, but also believe that they can achieve what they want to in life. Ideally in the future, they wouldn't need my services anymore, but for me, that isn't why I am tutoring. I decided to tutor again so I can leave a lasting impact and friendship with my students and receive fulfillment in my work while also instilling important values I have learned to enable them to have fulfilling careers and live an optimistic and positive life.
Teaches all skill levels
Teaching since 2019

Matthew is fantastic! I came in with a very limited understanding of the CS world and he was able to break it down into simple, easy to understand language. He gave step by step advice and kept asking if I had anymore questions. He is very passionate about the subject and I really believe that's what sets him apart from other instructors.
