If m and p have the same dimensions then Mathematica will subtract (or
add) entry-by-entry the way you want.  You might want to clarify what
you mean by "subtracts [a matrix] from each 3x3 entry m" because that's
a little unclear; better, post your code so we can see what's
happening.

In[8]:=
m=Array[Random[Integer,{-10,10}]&,{3,3}]
p=Array[Random[Integer,{-10,10}]&,{3,3}]

Out[8]=
{{6,1,-7},{2,9,-3},{1,1,8}}

Out[9]=
{{1,9,5},{-3,-10,9},{9,5,6}}

In[10]:=
m-p

Out[10]=
{{5,-8,-12},{5,19,-12},{-8,-4,2}}
