I needed to take the GMAT within 7 weeks. Matthew provided excellent guidance in helping me prepare for both the quant and verbal sections. His knowledge in the math principles and verbal strategies needed to succeed helped me quickly prepare for the test. He also provided necessary feedback to help push me to do better. I also appreciated that he was available all the time on e-mail or phone even after our meetings. Matthew truly became a source of information that I could trust. Under his watch, I was able to successfully take the GMAT and get a score in my target range on the first try. I strongly recommend Matthew as a GMAT tutor to anyone in the metroplex who wants someone who is willing, knowledgeable, and flexible on time/location.
"Great SAT tutor"
Anne from Dallas, TX
Matthew worked with my daughter for 5 or 6 weeks before she took the SAT. I wanted someone not only intelligent but also attuned to the approaches that work with this particular test. While I didn't directly observe the lessons, I was impressed with the summaries that Matthew sent, as well as with the homework he left for her to do. My daughter, while reluctant to have me hire a tutor, immediately realized that Matthew was very helpful to her. She spent time reviewing and preparing for the sessions and felt good about her preparation for the test. I haven't seen her results yet, but whatever they are, I appreciate the thoughtful preparation that Matthew provided. I highly recommend him!
"Great Tutor. "
Karen from Cedar Hill, TX
Matthew is a great tutor - he has been working on SAT prep with my son and his friend this fall and they seem to get a lot out of the sessions. Matthew gives plenty of homework, breaks down problems for his students in a logical way, and seems to take pride in the accomplishments of the students. My son actually enjoys his sessions with Matthew - he has gained confidence and of course academic knowledge.
"Extremely Effective and Endlessly Patient"
Jessica from Argyle, TX
I worked with Matthew for almost six weeks, 2 to 3 times a week, to prepare for the GMAT. I had been out of school for almost three years and hadn't taken any math in even longer. The first time I took the GMAT I got a pretty dismal score in the quantitative portion and I was not feeling particularly confident in my ability to get the score I needed in the short amount of time I had before taking the test again. I didn't test well on the SAT, back in the day, and I've never been a fan of math in general. But Matthew is endlessly patient and always positive in a very genuine way. I was extremely impressed with his ability to always be "on the job" every single session and he's completely brilliant but very approachable at the same time. In my opinion, one of his greatest strengths is the fact that he teaches students at all ages and levels. I was always astounded that he could go from one lesson to the next, changing subjects, levels of difficulty and people, and never miss a beat. I got the math score I needed on the GMAT, and with a few quick discussions from Matthew, also raised my verbal score considerably, giving me an overall score that was higher then I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, especially those seeking test prep tutoring.
"THE tutor for SAT tips, techniques, and results!"
Lee Ann from Plano, TX
After working with Matthew on the reading section of the SAT (about five hours), our daughter's score of 690 flew up to 750! ****Matthew really knows the test and how to get around the snares and pitfalls.**** Extremely intelligent guy! As a tutor, he is friendly, prompt, professional, patient, and encouraging. He is also flexible in working with scheduling. We had originally tried one of the "store-front" test-prep places, and wish we had just worked with Matthew. In our daughter's case, her scores were already good, but the regular test-prep was designed for students who needed basics, and they didn't teach enough of the tips/strategy needed. We recommend Matthew no matter what level your student achieves as a beginning point. Thank you SO much, Matthew!!!!!!!
"So worth the money!"
Marcie from Grand Prairie, TX
My very first lesson with Matthew I saw the value of his tutoring. His abundant knowledge and excellent teaching strategies for the GRE saved me. I only had 3 weeks to prepare and Matthew knew exactly what to work on in that short time to get me ready. I improved my performance on the test immensely and made the exact score I needed to make. I looked at other tutors but I thoroughly recommend Matthew as the best.
"Improved GRE score! "
Kelly from Dallas, TX
I met with Matthew a lot in preparation for the GRE, and he definitely helped me brush up on my math skills, verbal strategies, and writing technique. He was very patient, especially on my off days, when I wasn't in the mood for GRE. I improved my GRE score into the range I was hoping for. He's great about figuring out the best way that you learn and working with you in that way. He's also very encouraging and confident in you. If God forbid, I have to take any other test I would refer back to Matthew. He also is easy to make your schedule with and any changes that need to be changed he's very responsive and quick!
