Hello! I'm Matthew, an experienced tutor specializing in SAT prep. I graduated from Rice University in 2018 with a Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering and received a 2400 superscore on my SAT in 2013. I offer tutoring for SAT/PSAT Test Prep in the Math, Reading, and Writing portions, as well as for all students K-12 and any level of ability; I am highly experienced with helping students with their school coursework from my previous employment. The solutions and test-taking techniques required for the SAT extend to any subject or test material, as such I would be happy to help prepare for any general test prep as well, such as for the ASVAB.

Throughout 6 summers of personalized tutoring at an after school learning service and working as a private tutor, I've developed a proficiency for explaining and delineating concepts that a student might struggle with in a straightforward manner. As a private tutor, I would often work with high school students in their homes or nearby libraries each week to shore up their weaknesses or get them ahead of school, using a mix of workbooks and my custom curriculum for the subject. In the classroom, I advised dozens of students working on personalized coursework in Math and Reading, ranging from high schooler's working on Algebra and graphing, down to children at the Pre-K level who I would personally teach to read and write for the first time. I work 1 on 1 with students when they encounter stumbling blocks; I identify and move together with them on weaknesses that hamper their coursework. I found that teachers who merely speak at their students and dump information on them for an hour are not able to help those who need it most. I offer a concise explanation on the material, and explain the rest during assisted practice and hands-on learning. The most effective and efficient method to learn a subject is to work through practice problems and coursework yourself. To facilitate this in a guided, structured manner allows the student to foster independence and mastery of the mater

A very Smart and patient tutor.

I’ve used a few tutors on Wyzant but Matthew is the only one my son seems to like. I asked him the reason and he said he is able to connect with him. He is preparing for the SAT and listens to whatever advice Matthew gives him. Will definitely continue to use him.

Good SAT tutor

Matthew is a very bright tutor. I would recommend him for SAT prep! I requested his services several times to assist my son on improving his SAT score. My son thought Matthew was knowledgeable and had a good study plan tailored for him.

SAT and ACT

I really appreciate you working with him. He has a heavy week with testing this coming week. I spoke to him about continuing to tutor and we have agreed that it would be in our best interest to get the most out of his SAT and ACTs. Thank you.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He taught my 6th grader SAT math and English. He was very patient in introducing new concepts and strategies. He came well prepared with a lesson plan and activities for the session.
