Why do I tutor? The "ah-ha moments"--the moments when the lights come on. Overcoming adversity as a student can be an empowering experience for the student. I am glad to be apart of this process. I find tutoring exciting and quite gratifying and will do my best to help students reach there goals.
Why should you select me to be your tutor? In the words of a student of mine, "Cognitively Mat is smart, but that's not what makes him a good tutor. There are all kinds of smart tutors. What makes Mat stand out is his creativity and responsiveness/ability to adapt."

I pride myself in my ability to adapt to students' needs. I learn about each student as an individual, analyze their strengths/weakness, and tailor my approach to meet their needs. At the end of each session we end with a "free of charge" review of my performance. This allows the student time to tell me what is going well and what could be improved. I am very adaptable and flexible.
