Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have some glowing letters of recommendation, and among the highest ratings in this region. I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college students and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. Best of all, my rates are cheaper than many tutors, and for your convenience, I can drive directly to you. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCI.

I am in the Top Five tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. most hours taught monthly
4. largest client base
5. farthest geographical regions

Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

My subjects include:
Mathematics: algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, pre-algebra, elementary
English: grammar, vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation, ESL, ESOL
Research Papers: editing, proofreading, outlining, analyzing, citations
Computer: Excel, Word, PowerPoint, QuickBooks
Special Needs: ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger's, study skills
Music: theory, ear training, sight singing, improvisation, saxophone
Job Seeking: resume writing, cover letters, T-Letters, LinkedIn, job search techniques
Professional Services: bookkeeping, AP/AR, property management, office automation

Matthew was a great instructor for Intermediate level Excel training. He was able to help me with navigational tips and shortcuts, formulas and totals between sheets within one spreadsheet, as well as understanding Vlookup functionality. I highly recommend Matthew if you are in need of Excel training.

I hired Matt to specifically help me prepare for the Quantitative section of the GMAT. We met online for several 2 hour tutoring sessions over the course of a month. Matt was very understanding of my busy work schedule and worked our appointments around this. During our tutoring sessions, Matt did a great job of explaining and helping me solve GMAT exam practice problems. He is very friendly and laid back, while also being an utmost professional. I highly recommend him for any of your graduate school level exam preparations.

We switched my son from clarinet to saxophone in the middle of the school year and hired Matt to help get him caught up with his bandmates. Matt relates very well to an 11 year-old boy, and although he was serious and got to work immediately, he put Josh at ease from the start. I was initially worried that a 90 minute lesson would push the limits of my son's endurance, but he has really enjoyed the sessions, and the longer time has been very beneficial. Overall a 100% positive experience

Exc dialog/connect that Matt picked up on fairly quickly. He became familiar with my learning style; I became familiar with his teaching style. A win-win for both!

I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Matt is wonderful. He is tutoring both of my elementary school children and they really like him a lot. He takes his time with the children and gives them both his full attention. As a working single mother, my schedule can be hectic. Matt is very flexible with his schedule and very accommodating with changes in my plans week to week and I truly appreciate that! I am excited to see how the kids will do this next grading period with Matt helping them, because I already see a little more confidence in their approach to schoolwork. I highly recommend Matt as a tutor, he's professional and a pleasure to work with.

Matt is doing a great job. He has been very easy to work with. He is patient and my son is benefiting from the sessions. Matt really takes the time to explain the material and help my son through the problems. Matt has also taken time to make sure I know how the lessons are progressing. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone needing help with math related subjects.

My son is a junior in high school. He needed help with a video project in Sociology. I contacted Matt and he came by and immediately jumped right in and helped him get the project done in one evening. He also was very calm and patient with my son, while helping him organize an English research paper that was due the next day. I admire his calm proficient manner and expertise in English literature and excellent assistance in writing research papers.
