Matthew’s Story

Why Physics

“I think that physics beautifully helps us understand the world around us. It is a nice mixture of being based on empirical methods and relying on mathematical methods to produce explanations.”

Professional Experience

Matthew worked as a camp counselor and physics teaching assistant at Stanford University’s Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes in 2016. In 2017, he worked in the same capacity at Stanford’s Summer Online High School, and as a teacher at Brown University’s Summer High School.

Matthew began teaching at Wheaton Warrenville South High School during the 2018–2019 school year.
