About this tutor

Patient, Creative and Effective Tutor/Instructor for All Subjects, All Ages, All Cities

Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references and the highest ratings in this region. I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores and made the Dean's List.

In addition to teaching for public schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, Kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as college students and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCI. I appreciate your time and consideration and look forward to working with you!

 

Thank you,

Matthew J. Horwich

Qualifications

I graduated from Case Western Reserve University in 1998. As a Provost Scholar, I earned a 50% tuition discount based on my test scores. I began tutoring math when I was in sixth grade, while in my my middle school's High Academic Potential Program. I have had my own private tutoring business, Matthew J. Horwich LLC, for over twelve years. Prior to Lessons.com, I had partnered with several other prestigious online education companies. Locally, I have worked with students and parents from several of the top college preparatory schools, as well as partnered with their guidance counselors and teachers. Some of the more well-known schools include Gilmour Academy, Hawken School, University School and St. Ignatius.

While past achievements of former pupils are not an indicator of how well a new student will do, this is my Wall of Fame:

Top Five ACT scores:

34 Solon High School - Joshua W.

    Matthew is a great tutor. He assisted me Math for ASVAB which is an entrance exam for the Military. He helped me refresh my math skills. Not only did he do a good job teaching me the material he also taught me in a way that I would be able to remember everything. He is also very flexible and definely cares about his students!

    Matthew was great, very professional and efficient. We were having a little trouble in the beginning and he was very patient, and helped us get the video chat all set up. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone.

    Matt was very helpful with setting up my format for my research paper. He shared a lot of valuable information with me that could be used in the future while writing my essays and papers. Matt is very patient and very understanding to my situation. Thanks for all your help!
