Private Test Prep Teacher

I have taught 30+ test prep students, ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, ASVAB, GED, TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, etc. Using my broad teaching expertise and coursework in mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry) English (reading, writing, grammar) and Science (biology, chemistry, physics), I have helped prospective university students (juniors, seniors and even sophomores) get the scores they need to gain acceptance to their top school choices. Let me show you how successful you or your child can be.

A recent success story from one of my students was an increase of 4 points on her ACT, for a composite of 30. That's 16 individual points within four subjects!

After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.
Carroll
Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.
Gaetano
Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his  writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable.  Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really  explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to  any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and  prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

I took lessons with Rahny last year. She helped me to refine my essay writing skills. I had never written an essay before. I’d never had a portfolio before either, but it has come in handy in more ways than I ever could’ve imagined. I’ve referenced the materials on vocabulary, pronunciation and essay writing exercises a dozen times.She still takes the time to answer some of my questions.
Matthew
Thanks for all your patience even though I was running late. I was all ready to cancel my lesson, but you encouraged me to keep my goals in mind and keep moving forward. I loved that you adjusted the material accordingly and worked through the homework together with me. I look forward to our next session. :)
Natasha
Rahny is very interesting in her approach. It is great how she goes about sharing ideas, extending the discussion and engaging with me and the content. She brings so much liveliness to the class. The texts are very good, practical and related directly to my goals of wanting better communication with my colleagues.

Much like study skills, this is a topic that is primarily up to the student's willingness to put certain tips and tricks into practice. Pneumonic devices, time-frame requirements and the difference between knowing facts for a test and truly comprehending subject matter.

"Mojy is a great gift from God, in my opinion. She knows 6 languages fluently, including Arabic, Persian,Farsi, Dari, Tajik, Afghani and English, and maybe more... I have no doubt that she knows more. I learned Basic Arabic from her with fun and her great attitude. She gave me wonderful tips about how to learn Arabic easily. She is very sweet, intelligent, knowledgeable, fair, enthusiastic, honest, and super helpful. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT BACKGROUND CHECK. She carries a TSSC with Full Scope Polygraph. What more do want!!! I agree with other reviews: You are lucky, if you have Mojy ( Ms Hudiburgh) for your instructor. Go Mojy! :)"

"We originally solicited Rod's support in order to help get our 8th grade daughter up to speed in math class. With high school rapidly approaching, we wanted to ensure that her footing was solid for the rigors of the high school curriculum. As the New York State testing approached, we asked Rod to take some time in the weekly sessions to work on test-taking skills and to do a bit of brushing up on skills that my daughter may run into trouble with. I had my daughter take last year's 8th grade state test (which I found a copy of online), and asked Rod to review her work and help address the learning gaps. Rod's approach was to help my daughter recognize that she actually did know how to do many of the questions that she answered correctly, and with helping her reframe some of the questions, she was able to recognize that the test was not in fact, blind siding her which did wonders for her confidence. Rod spent ample time discussion stress reduction techniques, both before and after the test. As an incredibly supportive gesture, he followed up with us after each of the test days in order to inquire as to how she did, and show she was feeling overall. Rod's contribution definitely helped alleviate her anxiety and bolstered her confidence. By the end of the test she felt confident that she had performed to the best of her ability."

Nadia was able to prepare my daughter successfully as demonstrated by her passing the exams she needed to and increasing her SAT score a significant amount from her initial take. My daughter's review: Nadia is so awesome. I was very overwhelmed and a bit nervous to begin working with a tutor but Nadia was so easy to talk to, work with, and learn from. She actually made sessions fun and I can honestly say that I looked forward to meeting with her. I would highly recommend working with her if you need help with test prep."
