Tutor, Teacher, and
Academic Conqueror

WELCOME, PARENTS

Hi, my name is Matt Hallock. I’ve been  tutoring students of all ages, K – Graduate school/Vocational advancement, for the past decade.

I absolutely love coaching students into high confidence, strong motivation, healthy self-worth, and having a vision for their future…

All through empowering them to finally have their “Aha!” moments in their academics. 

As you will see, I produce results. My students raise their school grades, boost their SAT and ACT and GRE scores, and write life-changing college essays. 

What a pleasure it has been to watch Matt at work with our son! He is so impressive and knowledgeable. We interviewed 4 different tutors while looking for an instructor to help our son with the SATs. After all the interviews, my son and husband looked at me and said, “there is no comparison, no question…. Matt Hallock is the one”. His process for teaching the SAT test was very specific, with individual needs being addressed with each step. Matt was responsible and reliable and worked very well with our son. I would recommend Matt to ANY student or level. My son’s score increased by nearly 300 points!! THANK YOU MATT!!

Our child has struggled for years in school due to dyslexia and dysgraphia. The school system was not helpful in providing the skills he needed to succeed. Matt was patient and took the time to understand how he learned. Matt then taught him learning skills to be able to succeed while assisting him with math, reading and writing. Our son has improved from “far below basic” to working at grade level. Last quarter he received a 4.0 in 8th grade! Matt is awesome and we have really enjoyed working with him.

WHERE DO YOU NEED HELP?

SAT Prep and ACT Prep

With me, your student will learn how to get out of the victim mentality that keeps many, many students stuck in test anxiety, thoughts of worthlessness, and the panic mode that comes from the pressure to perform.

We are going to cover SO MANY THINGS, including:

  • The ACT/SAT Reading Battle Plan…which will help the students know what to look for in the passage, how to find it most quickly, and how to make sense of the questions.
  • Specific reading exercises that train students to THINK and not let their brains fall into autopilot mode.
  • The ACT/SAT Math Battle Plan…talking about “the trail”
  • A bunch of real practice questions so we can get used to thinking outside the box, the way the SAT math section requires.
  • The ACT/SAT Writing Battle Plan…how to attack the writing section in an organized, systematic fashion, and how to find the “formula” in writing questions, so that you’re not left to guessing by what “sounds right.”
  • Specific grammar topic practice and also style question practice.
  • Incredibly powerful mindset, and life principles on building confidence, eliminating test anxiety, not being a victim of the test, how to set goals for success, and how to create an SAT/ACT practice plan.

Raising School Performance

No student is beyond help. Every single student I’ve ever worked with has been smart, even when their grades don’t show it.

Too often their poor performance for whatever reason:

  • Learning difficulties
  • Life tragedies
  • Low confidence
  • Zero care about anything
  • Just plain old difficulty with grasping the subject
  • Test anxiety

It becomes a snag. A stigma that they can’t seem to escape.

So I lead them to freedom. God wants them free. And so do I.

My students gain confidence FAST. Their attitudes shift to HOPEFUL and DRIVEN…FAST. And their grades always go up.

Subjects available:

    • All math up through pre-calculus
    • All English, literature, and writing.
    • HS Biology
    • HS Chemistry
    • HS History
    • AP English, AP U.S. History, AP Chemistry
    • Spanish 1 and 2

 

College Essay Crafting

When your student works with me, I will guide them to a finished product that is not just a good essay. It’s not just a good sounding piece of writing that checks off a box on their college application to do list.

It’s a testimony of who God has made them to be. It’s a story of the power and potential that has been instilled in them from their childhood.

And it’s my job to lead my students to see that.

Together, we cover the proper, HIGH SELF WORTH mindset that’s needed.

We come up with the most efficient game plan so they can satisfy many essay prompt requirements by writing. the fewest possible essays.

We brainstorm with powerful and specific exercises in order to put together the puzzle pieces of their life-changing essays.

I lead them through montage and narrative essays. Through showing vs. telling. All the way through to submission and admission.
