Student Feedback for Matt

"The best tutor imaginable!"

- Amy, Wellesley Hills, MA on 5/27/12

"Great First Time!"

- Jeff, Chestnut Hill, MA on 5/4/14
Matt replied on 6/29/2014

Jeff's son was a pleasure to work with: he worked very hard in a short amount of time (only one month) to prepare for the June 7 SAT, and I'm happy to report that his hard work paid off! He improved his SAT writing score 140 points from the 70th to the 95th percentile and boosted his essay score from an 8 to an 11 (out of 12). Few students see such impressive gains in so little time. He has my congratulations and best wishes!

"Boston's Best Tutor"

- Shelly, Boston, MA on 4/26/14

"Very easy to understand and thorough! "

- Tiffany, Cambridge, MA on 3/4/14

"Outstanding teacher! Four weeks with Matt raised my GRE by 20 percentile points."

- Dan, Belmont, MA on 1/24/14
Matt replied on 3/14/2014

I just heard some good news from Dan, so I have to brag about him! Dan has already had a distinguished career in public service, despite not having a college degree. But he hired me to help him boost his GRE to have a better shot at getting into the Mid-Career MPA program at the Harvard Kennedy School. I'm thrilled to announce he's been admitted! Dan is far and away one of the most driven and intelligent clients I've worked with: he impressed me time and time again in his ability to handle the very rigorous work I assign, outshining almost all the college and post-college students I've worked with. I'm so grateful to have been a very small part of his remarkable journey, and I look forward to hearing what he goes on to accomplish after Harvard.

"Excellent tutor."

- Meredith, Dover, MA on 12/30/13

"Highest Possible Recommendation"

- Greg, Bronxville, NY on 12/30/13

"Straight up miracle worker."

- Sarah, Boston, MA on 12/9/13
Matt replied on 3/26/2014

I'm happy to report that all of Sarah's hard work paid off! Today I found out she was admitted to Harvard Business School for her MBA. Of all the students I've worked with the last few years, Sarah stands out to me as the most disciplined and assiduous. She read and reflected on every word of the material I assigned her, engaged thoughtfully with the ideas we studied, and asked probing questions. I look forward to seeing what she goes on to accomplish after Harvard.

"Up 26 percentile points on the GRE in less than a month!"

- Michelle, Somerville, MA on 10/29/13
Matt replied on 7/22/2014

Michelle was a pleasure to work with, and she has my congratulations as she starts a PhD program at Harvard Business School this fall!


- Rives, Cambridge, MA on 9/14/13
Matt replied on 9/17/2013

Rives sells himself short in this review: he actually tackled much more than "advanced algebra and calculus," covering as he did a majority of the important applied topics of undergraduate mathematics -- from Lagrange multipliers and constrained optimization (in multivariable calculus) to eigenvalues and their applications to diagonalization (in linear algebra) to the analysis of autocorrelated time series (in stochastic processes) -- in only a few days! It was a tall order, but it was a pleasure to help someone so dedicated do it.

"Excellent Tutor"

- Julie, Cambridge, MA on 9/7/13
Matt replied on 7/23/2014

Julie was a great student who reached her target score on the GMAT and now will be heading to her dream graduate program at Cornell! I'm excited to see what she goes on to accomplish.

"Insightful, effective and well worth the money."

- Ahmad, Chestnut Hill, MA on 8/24/13

"Terrific Experience!"

"Very good SAT Tutor!"

- Elizabeth, Newton Highlands, MA on 5/1/13

"Very Cool Guy, Amazing Tutor!"

- David, Chestnut Hill, MA on 3/29/13
Matt replied on 3/27/2014

David was such a pleasure to work with, bright and driven, yes, but also curious and magnanimous. He is a model student and a constant source of enthusiasm. I'm thrilled to have gotten the chance to work with him, and I'm happy to report that I just heard he's been admitted to Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth, the University of Chicago, Williams, and Amherst. Few students could win the attention of so many excellent schools. I couldn't be more excited for him!
