"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.

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" less...
