Hi, I'm Matthew Meltzer. Welcome to my profile!
Matthew Meltzer's Bio:
Matthew Meltzer's father, Ed Meltzer, gave his first driving lesson on Labor Day 1928. He was the Charter President of the East Fishkill Rotary Club. He was posthumously honored as a Paul Harris Fellow by The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. He taught driving for more than fifty years.
I, Matthew Matthew, have been giving driving lessons since February 1974. For me, it is not a part-time job like other instructors; it's a career. If you want the best professional driving instruction, learn from Meltzer's Driver Training Center with a career instructor - ME.
The Meltzer's Driver Training Center philosophy is to find people who want to drive and are capable of becoming drivers and to do what is necessary to assist them in this endeavor. Sometimes this is with Driving Instruction or Road Test Service or Driver Evaluation or Vehicle Modification Evaluation. The list goes on.
Meltzer's Driver Training Center is based in Dutchess County yet has served people to the South on Long Island and in New York City, to the North in Albany, to the East nearing Connecticut and to the West nearing Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Some people travel to the Hudson Valley for services. To some people, I do the traveling.
I am well known for my expertise in the field of training those with Learning Differences. Tutoring is available for those who are having trouble or even for those who anticipate having trouble passing the New York State Learner Permit Test.
I give Driver Training to people of all ages (16 thru 95 - so far). I teach driving to many students with no disabilities. Driver Training is also available for those with Learning Differences, Physical Disabilities, and/or an Emotional Disability.
