Hello, I’m Mat Knudson, and I am a private economics tutor.
As a Ph.D. in economics (Vanderbilt 2020), I have a deeper understanding of the material – and how to explain it – than most tutors. I haven’t just studied economics. I’ve taught it. I’ve written exam questions for my own classes, for textbook publishers, and for national competitions. I’ve had formal training in teaching and tutoring. In the three years I’ve worked through Wyzant, I’ve gained thousands of hours of tutoring experience.
However, knowledge isn’t enough on its own. It takes the right attitude to provide effective tutoring. I put my full effort into providing you with a professional tutoring experience. That means everything from arriving on time to keeping in regular communication to providing you with additional resources that you might find helpful. It means providing you with a supportive environment, free from judgment, where there are no silly questions and where lessons are based on your current level of understanding, not what your professor thinks you should already know. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring, whether it’s a traditional college student trying to adapt to Micro 101, or a working professional trying to finish their MBA after work each day. I like knowing that I can really help people to achieve their goals, and that along the way, I can equip them with powerful economic tools.
