Matt has been teaching the LSAT for nearly 20 years. Some have called him “the LSAT encyclopedia” for his ability to recall (and often recite) nearly every LSAT question ever written. He started teaching in classrooms on universities across the United States. As students migrated to online classrooms so did his teaching. Now he teaches 3 nights every week at LSAT Lab. Matt believes that teaching is more than mere demonstration and puts students in the driver’s seat when working through questions in class.
Beyond the classroom, Matt spends nearly every waking minute designing LSAT Lab. As former head of LSAT Academics at Manhattan Prep he has led curriculum projects that include: online communities, publishing, in-class curriculum, analytics, and instructor training. Matt is working to build the future of personalized digital learning environments and sees that future quickly approaching.
What Students Are Saying
"The classes at LSAT Lab are truly engaging and the instructor Matt is seriously one of the kindest and most generous people I've met."
"The live online classes were a fantastic resource, allowing me to ask questions and engage in classroom discussions to gain a deeper understanding, and even an appreciation, of the subtlest nuances of the LSAT. Matt, my tutor, was approachable, easy to work with, and encouraging. His methodology for logical reasoning transformed how I approached the section and his approach to reading comprehension is what finally allowed me to crack the 99th percentile."
"With Matt's help, I improved a lot and got the score I wanted—171! I highly recommend Matt to everyone who needs some help to get their own dream score."
