About Matt

START NOW. Each April sophomores and juniors take the SAT. Learn to HOW to take the test.
1. Read more effectively.
2. Write proficiently.
3. Compute mathematically.
Then practice the strategies on actual published materials. I do not use copies!

As a new high school teacher I saw many students struggle with their textbook reading assignments. So to help them I completed a Master's Degree in elementary education from Aquinas College that focused on reading education. I teach my students the best way to read, think logically, and earn their best scores.

Your child will do their BEST, if they know the three fundamentals of standardized tests. In addition to test prep strategies I teach time management skills. Students complete practice tests to reinforce our lesson. I provide instruction to eliminate future errors as we review the results.

I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I was born and raised here too. I began teaching in 1988 and have taught elementary, high school, and adult learners throughout my career. In 2008, I pursued a new opportunity evaluating community programs for a local healthcare provider. When my position was eliminated due to corporate downsizing, I began to explore other ventures. I started my own company, and worked as a tutor for a local company. Now I started tutoring on my own to help students maximize their ACT, SAT, and PSAT score.
