“Matthew went through great effort to accommodate my learning needs. I am not somebody that can understand mathematics just by reading what's on a paper, he was very helpful in the way he conveyed the methods of solving problems. He was patient when I needed to go back to something I did not understand. I appreciate that he was flexible with our lesson schedule to suit my needs as a full time employed individual. ”
