My name is Matt and I am currently studying Environmental Engineering and Spanish at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. I have much experience tutoring students in high school in the subjects of math, science, and Spanish. Additionally, I volunteer at Centro Romero in Chicago where I assist teaching ESL classes to Spanish-speakers.

In addition to tutoring, I also have an extensive amount of leadership experience. I served as Vice President of Interact (a student-run community service organization at Cary-Grove) and on the Executive Board of National Honor Society. I was also a part of Link Crew, a program at my high school that helps freshmen to adjust to high-school life by doing fun activities with them.

I also played on the basketball team for four years at Cary-Grove, earning All-Conference Honors and All-Area Honorable Mention as a senior. I have been an assistant coach and counselor at several summer basketball camps, including the Cary-Grove Summer Basketball Camp and the Rich Falk Basketball Camp.

I promise that being tutored by me will be an enjoyable, enlightening, and overall beneficial experience.

I have been playing basketball recreationally and competitively since I was 5 years old. I have always loved watching and playing the sport with my friends, family, or just by myself. I have been a volunteer at several summer basketball camps over the years and I have enjoyed those very much. I played on my high school varsity team (Cary-Grove) for two years where I was captain both years and earned All-Conference Honors as well as All-Area Honorable Mention in my senior year.

Excellant with kids Matt is very accommodating with our busy schedule. His rates are very affordable, too. This is especially appreciated when dealing with twins. Through Matt's teaching, the kids each increased their understanding by three grade levels. It is interesting to see Matt use sibling rivalry to his advantage by having the kids compete to see who can solve a problem first. I would certainly contact Matt ag ...
