Awesome teacher!

Shortly after Matt began working with my 10-yr-old son, he moved from the east coast to the west coast. After some skepticism, we decided to continue lessons via Skype. He is amazingly patient and my son has been doing so well. I didn't think my son would be able to learn via Skype, but Matt has really helped him be successful. Matt has been on top of sending us all the lesson information quickly. Thanks Matt for continuing to work with Lawson!
