McGill Honours student teaches Math and Physics in the city of Montreal, in person or remote.

Methodology

I like to let the student explain the subject and solve problems, so that I may find the root of their misunderstandings and weaknesses. When that is done I explain the subject in depth, and then practice the difficulty with them.

Background

I am an undergraduate joint Honours math and physics student with an excellent academic track record. I have placed very well in many math competitions, and enjoyed teaching whenever I got the opportunity. I have tutored for two different institutions in the past.

Matthew was incredibly helpful with various math courses. He really tailors his way of explaining to the way you usually understand things and takes the time to make the course content lighter and more relatable. I was very impressed by how he succeeded to do so in a clever, creative and attentive way. Matthew was a serious, responsive, friendly and optimistic tutor! I would 100% recommend him.

Me and Matthew go way back, from the time he saved me on the eve of a math exam to when we took baths together as kids. Matthew is a great teacher because he focuses on understanding the problems. He will show you how to visualize them better to get a good grasp on them. After that, any problem will be clear and easy. Math is his pation and he might make it yours!

Matthew is passionate about Math, his way of approaching problems is so creative. I always feel that Math become more real and more relaxing when studying with him. I am his friend who often bothers him with random questions in Math and Physics. I would recommend Matthew to other students who need help in Math or simply inspiration to enjoy studying Math. He is also good at Physics and Computer Science, and can teach in two languages English and French.

Matthew's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Matthew — Ever since I was a kid I always liked figuring things out. Trying to explain and understand the things around me by finding some guiding principle. As I grew up this translated into an interest in physics and math. Solving problems was always fun for me, and being able to understand a topic that was until then obscure was always fascinating to me. Mathematics and physics came as a natural choice to me.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Matthew — The discovery aspect of math and physics. These subjects are such that for any topic there are many levels of understanding. Every time a new level is reached, it is like discovering some overarching principle of fundamental importance. Mathematics is a subject that allows for endless such discoveries, and as such it is very rewarding.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Matthew — Tutoring is a unique way of learning that surpasses all others because of its active nature. The tutor works actively on improving the understanding and skill of the student. The same cannot be said of other sources of education: classes and books can only provide information in a passive way, presenting the information without personalizing it to the student. Tutoring is therefore the best and most time-efficient way of learning any subject matter, and as such it is of great value. The tutor has the ability to figure out the misunderstandings of the student and to focus on them. Tutoring has the potential to improve both the performance and mentality of the student drastically.
I am a "Superprof" because I truly love the subjects that I teach and have been working to understand them deeply for quite some time. I therefore care about conveying these beautiful topics to others. More importantly, I know what it takes to learn those subjects so I am very effective in helping others in learning them.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Matthew — I had a history teacher that would tell history while whispering, and the whole class would be dead quiet to be able to hear his fascinating stories. I had many math teachers which I admired. A lot of them had real passion for the subject they taught and real care for their students. They have inspired me greatly by their passion, both for the subject and for teaching.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Matthew — I have five
The first key is to have a real reason for succeeding. It should be well thought out and motivated by ambition, not fear.
Once a good reason is found, one can find the will to succeed, the second key.
The third is about self-esteem. To understand on an emotional level that success is possible, that efforts will pay off.
The fourth key is discipline. Once the first three conditions are achieved, the student must understand that success is not easy but worth it, and discipline is the way to get there. Ultimately, the burden should become the motivator, because it is the magnitude of the task that makes the success meaningful.
