I?m a language teacher and learner. I?ve been teaching English to non-native speakers professionally for five years and I?ve been helping non-native speakers for much longer.

I have a Bachelor?s degree in Middle Eastern Studies and I recently completed my Master?s degree in International and Comparative Education. I enjoy meeting people from other cultures and learning their languages, so I hope I can give you an enjoyable experience with learning my native language.

I had taken 2 classes with Matt (2.5 h total) And here is what I think: I would not recommend Matt as a tutor that can coach you for taking the Toefl exam if you are aiming to score 100+ like me. I have a strong feeling that if Matt had to take a ToeFL exam himself he would not get a 100+. In the first class (1.5 h) he spent time talking about the stuff not related to the exam. Eventually after 1.5h we did not finish writing even a half of the essay. After the class ended I was not able to get that half of the text that I wrote on Wyzant dashboard and Matt did not save it as well. I felt that time was wasted. I decided to give us a second chance, this time we scheduled for 1 hour. Same happened in this 1 hour. Again, I was not able to retrieve the text a wrote, Matt did not save it too. A well as Matt did not: 1) point out any grammatical mistakes or sentence structure from the 2 essays I sent him in the beginning of our classes, same with both "half Essays" that we wrote together during both classes. 2) give any clear home work assignments and set up "what we do for the next class" 3) help me with any reading questions that I sent him over, where I had struggled to understand "Why this is the correct" answer. Instead he talked for 20mins about the fact that every student should find his own way to approach reading section. Yes, Matt knows how the exam is structured and can talk hours about this, however I'm not taking a 3rd chance. I need a tutor that can work fast and efficient with students.

I'm preparing to TOEFL with Matt. So far I like it. Matt is well prepared for each lesson and walks me through all requirements for each TOEFL session. I like that he asks me every time what I did well and what I did good. This helps me to improve and think how I can improve. Plus he gives me valuable feedback which is very crucial for me, especially for the speaking session. I recommend Matt!

I am lucky I chose Matt as my TOEFl teacher. He is very very organized and has clear understanding of what international students need for achieving their goals !

I've studied with Matt for about a month. Sessions were fun, and encouraged me to get more involved. He helped me find ways that fit me. I felt his enthusiasm in teaching.

Matt is very patient and I appreciate that because I am a real beginner on my computer. I appreciate how he is working with me to find a new computer that is simpler for me to learn.

Matt is not only a great tutor but a great person. He makes you feel really comfortable and confident while teaching you exactly what you need. After looking for the perfect tutor I can happily say that Matt is the person. As a young professional, I was looking not only for a great teacher but someone who could understand daily life challenges while providing me the tools I've been missing in my journey to improve my English. Thanks Matt!!!

Matt is tutoring me with writing and grammar skills. As a Latin woman with language barriers, he has shown me how to identify my mistakes. He is patient, informative, kind and reliable. I would recommend Matt as a tutor.

I like that he got to know me to help understand my schedule, to be able to make full use of homework time. I feel we could make better use of the time we have, but is slow enough to help me understand the material more.

Matt is not only awesome tutor with a lot of professional experience and technics, he is also a great person to talk with who brings to the conversations interesting topics and ideas. I highly recommend him :)
