ABOUT MATTHEW

My Story

I am a writer, tutor, and education consultant, specializing in SAT and ACT Verbal test preparation and materials development.  For the last decade, I've worked as a test preparation instructor and college admissions counselor at elite private schools and college admissions consulting agencies. 

I provide freelance consulting for schools, tutoring centers, admissions consulting companies, and summer camps. As part of my work with freelance clients, I've developed SAT curricula; written SAT and ACT practice tests and guide books; run independent SAT bootcamps; and conducted online SAT teacher training seminars.

I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

"Matt was wonderful to work with. He is a really good instructor and walked my daughter through the few SAT Language issues that she kept struggling with.
