What makes Matt Marx extra amazing is that he not only is a capable tutor, but he has also has parented his own children successfully through this stressful process. This means that Matt truly understands the goals of the parent and adeptly balances those with his students' schedules, abilities, concerns, etc. This can be a tough balance and having a tutor who has seen the process "from the inside" is immensely helpful!

Matt definitely helped prepare our daughter for these huge tests. He has a way of making progress with no pressure. We have been thrilled with her results. I also have found Matt & Leslie’s knowledge of the entire college application process to be an added bonus. Their service keeps you on time with all the requirements & I completely trust their expertise—both professionally & as experienced parents themselves. A great value!! I will recommend Matt to everyone.

Matt worked with our daughter and raised her ACT score to well over the school average. He encouraged and coached her so that she could be prepared and enter the ACT testing session with confidence. Our daughter was accepted at all 8 schools where she applied and received scholarship offers as well. The investment in tutoring is well worth the return in scholarship monies.

We just learned that our son raised his SAT score by over 200 points thanks to the help of Professor Matt Marx. This is our third child, and we can tell with absolute certainty that Matt Marx is by far the BEST deal in town! Matt charges far less than both Kaplan and Princeton Review. The individual attention he gave our son made such a big difference. Matt was able to assess his strengths and weaknesses. We are so thankful for Matt's passion for teaching and his faith in our son. We are confident that our son will be able to attain acceptance into the college of his choice now that his SAT score is so strong!

Matthew worked with my son for three months prior to the SAT. During that time, he was extremely accommodating in terms of schedule. My son enjoyed his sessions and had a nice improvement in his test score. He also learned reading and writing skills that have helped him beyond his test-taking needs. I highly recommend Matthew Marx as a reading and writing tutor not only for test preparation but for general educational needs.

WOW! There are so many ways Professor Marx has helped my family! Our first interaction was with my oldest son, whose ACT score jumped a full 4 points! Money well spent! And my younger son went to another tutor affiliated with Professor Marx, in need of Algebra help. He left the first session and said "Mom, I can do this. I'm not stupid!" Then, in the weeks to come, to the amazement of his teachers, his math scores went from D's to A-B's. They were baffled. I was not! When you find someone who truly loves kids, and helps your child as though they are his own, there is simply no way to put a value on it. I keep funds on deposit, ready when we need him!

Highly recommend Matt. My son got into both his schools of choice (Ohio State University Main Campus and the University of Cincinnati). Matt’s help with ACT prep brought my sons ACT score up to make these college acceptances possible. Many thanks again!

Wendy Hux Pickerington, Ohio

Wow! Matt is incredible to work with and really related well with my son. My two older sons tried other ACT tutoring options and had weak results and experiences. What a difference working with Matt makes! He is amazing and extremely knowledgeable. My son got an amazing ACT score on his first try! Thank you Matt for all your support, time and focus! I would highly recommend!
