About Matt

To my future student,
Thank you for choosing me to assist you in developing the business skills you need to create new opportunities for yourself.
I always like to say: “Hard skills get you hired, soft skills get you promoted”. Universities prepare you for the hard skills; I prepare you for the soft skills. What exactly are the “soft skills” I am referring to? These are the skills that businesses look for in senior management yet generally lack some form of infrastructure to train you in. I will help you develop skills in; negotiations, team building, leadership, strategy, public speaking, developing presentations and cross-cultural communication.
My experience in these areas is deep. For ten years I worked in the banking industry as a manager and team builder. I created winning cultures in my banks and hired team members that excelled in the culture created. Over the past five years I have lived internationally and taught business courses at the university level. My areas of expertise during this time have been public speaking, strategy and cross-cultural business.
My success has not been solely in the domain of academia. I have worked as a business consultant with clients from multinationals such as Accenture, Microsoft, IBM, Kimberly Clark and Chevron. During my time as a consultant I have assisted clients in creating innovative presentations that have helped them gain notice and promotions within their companies.
I have earned a BS in leadership from Northeastern University and an MBA from Suffolk University. I also hold a graduate certificate in education from University of Notre Dame. My passion is straddling the bridge between education and business.
I am an opportunity creator. I can assist you in developing any business skill you feel is necessary for your continued success as a professional.
I look forward to working with you and helping you attain your goals.
Sincerely

Matt R.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

I possess ten years of management and team building experience in banking and four years of teaching business courses such as entrepreneurship, communication, negotiations and management. I will help you developing your greatest skills and market them. I have a BS in leadership from Northeastern University and an MBA from Suffolk University. I also hold a graduate certificate in education from University of Notre Dame.

Career Development

I have successfully mentored and counselled hundreds of people in exploring new careers and starting up businesses. I believe that living your passion creates the greatest opportunity for happiness and wealth in the world. If you feel your skills have stagnated or you are unhappy with your career, contact me so we can fix it.

College Counseling

For the past four years I have worked with students applying for college and graduate programs around the world. My clients have been accepted to US universities such as Harvard, Chicago, MIT, Wharton and Northeastern. I have also assisted students in being accepted to European schools such as HEC Paris, University of St Gallen and University of Lausanne in Switzerland.
After assisting you in creating your profile I also assist you in determining the right field of study to create a career of passion, excitement and success.

Marketing

My experiences in marketing focus around developing strategies and utilizing tools such as the five forces, 4Ps, competitive advantage and differentiation. I have worked in academia teaching marketing strategies and in business consulting with small and mid-sized enterprise to create effective campaigns. I have earned a BS in leadership from Northeastern University and an MBA from Suffolk University. I also hold a graduate certificate in education from University of Notre Dame.

Microsoft PowerPoint

The simple reality is that people treat PowerPoints like Word documents. We confuse audience-aid with speaker-aid. As a result we create boring PowerPoints presentations that drive our audience mad.
There is a better! We can fix this problem together. Let me help you create engaging and powerful presentations.
Did you know that we are not wired to retain words? Our DNA is programmed to remember, at an emotional level, pictures and stories.
When you work with me, we do not create documents, we create stories and events.

Microsoft Word

I have many years experience creating innovative word documents that help tell stories and create clarity in communication.

Proofreading

I have worked for four years as a teacher of writing and literature. In this time I have proofread many essays and stories. I work to create clarity and flow in all documents.

Public Speaking

I love public speaking. I follow the zen presentation methodology developed by Garr Reynolds. I believe the power of a presentation is in the presenter, not the presentation. I help you simplify your presentation, create engaging slides, connect with your audience and give exceptional presentations that will get you noticed.
I teach public speaking at the university level and as a consultant working with entrepreneurs preparing pitches for venture capitalists. Former clients of mine have received promotions directly due to their ability to give killer presentations.

Social Studies

In college I took many social studies courses and while I was living internationally I taught social studies and civics to students in both the school setting and privately. I understand the interconnection of culture, politics, geography and history that provides the foundation to social studies and how the study of SS is important to the development of the mind and understanding of society as a whole.

Study Skills

As a teacher to high school and university students over the past four years I have worked with many clients in the development of study skills. I understand various learning styles and focus on helping students identify connections between their talents and interests and the topics in question. I know that every student can learn to study and focus all they need is the proper road map to scholastic success.

Vocabulary

I understand how to assist students in the development and usage of advanced vocabulary. From reading to inferring I have helped students of all ages increase their word usage.
