How I Can Help

Drop by my sessions for help with all things physics! I'm happy to help with homework, lecture content, test prep, or to just chat about physics!


Hello! My name is Matthew (he/him pronouns), and I’m from the Bay Area. I am studying physics, although I also have interests in math and engineering. Some of my favorite things in the world are music, the Lord of the Rings, and Korean food.
