I did a fair amount of research for my 12-year-old daughter and Matt exceeded my expectations. Personable, professional, quirky and an excellent teacher. Highly recommended!

Matt is a fantastic teacher. He's knows what he's talking about, my daughter loves him, and he's very friendly. I highly recommend Matt.
