patient, knowledgeable great tutor

Matthew G.’s tutoring helped tremendously. Our son is a student at an arts high school and studies percussion. He is also taking an online music theory course through Berklee. Matthew G was able to quickly help him understand the complicated college-level material and get him caught up and ready to tackle future course assignments. Matthew G was also very responsive, available and easy to work with. We will be working with him again next week and in the future. Highly recommend him!
