Meet Matthew

Hi, my name is Matt. The role I serve in tutoring is as an academic coach. I believe your child has the ability to master any of their school material on their own, sometimes this latent talent just needs a little direction and refining. This is where I come in. While studying psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison I assisted in research efforts to understand the motivation of student learners. I helped to develop interventions designed to increase a student's perceived value of a course and thus their motivation to mastering the course material. I utilize these methods to help your child reshape their perspective of their coursework. I then give them the tools needed to continue in independent mastery through high school and college. Some skills I will pass on are in time management, active studying, effective reading and recollection, note-taking, organization, and test preparation. I tailor each tutoring experience based on the individual's needs. Message for more info.
