About Matt

I received my Bachelor's degree in Physical Sciences from Harvard, and my Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the Scripps Research Institute. I specialize in test prep for the SAT, GRE and LSAT. Unlike most people, I've always enjoyed taking standardized tests. While I don't expect everyone I work with to feel this way, I want to lower people's anxiety and make them recognize their strengths. I have some experience in college teaching, and have worked as a tutor since 2014 for a national tutoring company. I really like teaching people individually because many people do not learn well in a classroom situation, and it's easy for some people to get left behind in this setting.

Every student has different needs, but in general, I want to find the place where you are comfortable with the subject and build from there. With test prep the issues are usually test anxiety, test-specific skills, and subject knowledge. I enjoy this work both because the subjects are interesting to me and because I enjoy helping people succeed at something and overcome the obstacles that may be holding them back.

Excellent LSAT/Logic Games tutor

Matt is an excellent LSAT tutor, particularly when you use him as a supplement to your study and not rely him on him to do all the work for you. He makes this clear to you in the beginning, so it won't be a surprise. I primarily worked with Matt on Logic Games which he helped simplify and allowed me to better understand those I had trouble with during my independent study. I would recommend Matt t
