About Me

Welcome to my webpage. I’m Matthew. I’m passionate about sharing my knowledge of computer science with budding programmers and committed to helping them achieve their goals.

I graduated with my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine, in 2018. During my school years, I tutored the introductory Python series for the freshman class. I have taught for Girls Who Code and the Coder School in Irvine. Since 2020, I have offered private tutoring via Zoom.

Teaching Philosophy

At the core of my teaching philosophy are four key goals:

  1. Cultivate Problem-Solving Skills: I am committed to nurturing students’ problem-solving abilities, a cornerstone of success in the world of computer science and, well… life.

  2. Nurture Effective Study Habits: I prioritize the development of study habits and encourage my students to create tiny habits to help them be consistent in their practice.

  3. Inspire Confidence in Coding: My mission is to instill confidence in students, enabling them to tackle intricate problems with code and transform their ideas into functional solutions.

  4. Learn with Enthusiasm: Learning is most effective when it’s enjoyable. I strive to create a dynamic and engaging learning environment, ensuring that lessons remain exciting and thought-provoking for my students.
