Friendly, Knowledgeable, and Patient

Matthew taught me rules for exponents. He had them memorized and was able to recommend some apps to build my vocabulary for math and reading. His available times were very convenient for my schedule, and his over 100 hours of GRE experience separates him from the other tutors. Also, Matthew has one of the most inexpensive rates. When you combines this with his experience, you get the best tutor for the best price. I just hope he stays around for a while.

Really Great Tutor!!

UPDATE: I got into my top choice business school with a full-tuition scholarship, thanks to Matthew's help! I’m working with Matthew to prepare to take the GRE and he’s been great! He’s provided his own material to help me as well as mixing in the test prep materials that I have already bought and official resources from the GRE, making sure to focus on the topics that I am having trouble with and regularly going over material to make sure that I really understand it before he moves on. I feel like I will be prepared for my test with his help.

Excellent & Efficient

Matthew was an excellent tutor. I had taken the GRE once before and needed to significantly improve my scores for the program I was applying to. Matthew and I focused primarily on the mathematics portion as math is not my strong suit. He helped me to see problems in a completely different way and to be confident in my answers. He was very motivating and kept me accountable with homework assignments which was very helpful. After tutoring with Matthew, I took the GRE again and increased my overall score by 8 points!! I went from being in the 13th percentile to the 39th percentile in the quantitative portion!! I was very happy with my decision to have Matthew as a tutor. He was intelligent, patient, his teaching methods were effective and he wasn’t bad to look at either!!

Knowledgeable and great strategies

Matthew shared some great strategies in our first session. These strategies will be key in securing points in sections of the GRE I am already strong on but could use a few more points. Matthew's knowledge on the GRE is very clear as he asked great guiding questions which he will be using to tailor a lesson plan for our later sessions. I look forward to exploring these new strategies in future sessions.

Efficient, clear and organized

Matthew teaches with a very calm and precise manner. I really appreciated his organization and readiness to dive into teaching without wasting a second on anything that didn't matter. He breaks down the complexities of the GRE with great strategies for studying and learning. If you need a top notch tutor, he's the one.

Inspiring and patient

Taught me tricks to memorize hard vocabs. Friendly and patient and understanding. Broke down hard questions into smaller segments and the way he taught was helpful in sentence structures

Interesting way of teaching vocabulary!

His method for teaching vocabulary is very interesting & much more effective than other ways I have been taught before. I was able to remember five words by the end of the session when I have trouble remembering new vocabulary words in general.
