I am not one to leave a ton of reviews for services and I have had mixed success with Thumbtack, but I think this man is an unsung hero!!! My daughter has struggled in math for years, since grammar school, and is now in 8th grade. She continued to struggle with a different tutor. We have been working once a week with Mr. Matlak now for about six weeks and the difference is simply amazing. She just got her first "A" in a math quiz since grammar school and we both nearly cried in relief and joy. The two most important things about him - he KNOWS the concepts cold (some tutors DON'T), and he is PATIENT. I came to the conclusion that my daughter simply would not get the pace of learning or individualized attention in the public school setting that she needs for this particular topic. She is doing well in other topics but math is her Achilles heel. I didn't have the patience (or the knowledge) to help much and it became a source of frustration for both of us. It is such a RELIEF to see her more confident and not stressed about math now!! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Matlak. He promptly answered my inquiries, quickly provided two references who gave glowing reviews, and we are so happy to have him. We didn't want to go the Sylvan or other company routes - Mr. Matlak comes to your home, sits down with your student, and gets to work. I can't believe I did not invest in my child's future earlier in her school career - it is well worth it. We do an hour a week and it has made a VAST difference. I have no relation to Mr. Matlak (other than to sing his praises) and I would be happy to provide anyone interested with additional comments. Update April 22, 2015: Our daughter continues to work with Ray weekly and is now pulling a "B" average, coming up from the "D" average she was pulling when we started. Not struggling and spending so much time on math has allowed her to focus on her other classes and encouraged her to bring her other grades up as well as she prepares to enter high school. We couldn't be more pleased to see our daughter's confidence growing with respect to math. We'll keep him through COLLEGE if he's willing!! All kidding aside, Ray is well worth the investment, even if your budget calls for less frequent tutoring sessions.
She is punctual, professional, works really well with kids, and brought my Son's Math grade from danger zone to B... in fact, he aced his final exam with her help :)
They were flexible to my needs and strived to provide me with the best service. They actually taught me how to do the work instead of other tutors who basically do the work for you. Would highly reccomend brought my grade from an F to a B in four weeks
Joanna was punctual, professional and very friendly. we appreciated her taking the time to do an assessment of our daughter's skills & also staying to tutor for an additional hour. she seems flexible and we look forward to discovering more of her skills and experience as a tutor.

In todays ever-changing educational landscape, it is vital that a teacher possess a multitude of pedagogical skills as well as the ability to engage learners with a great diversity of cultural backgrounds. My experience and background can provide that. I have been teaching English and writing for eleven years and I have a MA in English/Composition. I have the ability to build an excellent rapport with people; thus, building the trust I need to help them succeed. I thrive when I teach one on one. I engage students with a fair, firm, and friendly attitude that demonstrates respect for students and their educational goals and always strive to make the learning applicable to students lives.
I just love what I do, and I just like sharing what I know. I like explaining things that a teacher might ignore. It's easy and fun.
I offer customized math tutoring sessions at a high level of quality. I have been tutoring students since 2000. I am an instructional coach for mathematics (which means that I train other teachers how to be good math teachers).
