Über Mich

Hello. My name is Matthew and welcome to my profile. I have a master's degree from the university of Bristol and have been teaching English for nearly three years now.

I have experience of living in three countries Brazil, Spain and Italy and I am now currently back settled in my hometown of Bristol, England. I am in love with my profession and always welcome the chance to create a strong bond with my students.

Business English

Two years ago I decided to specialize in Business English and interview preparation. Many people decide to learn English for work related reasons and I believe my lessons are some of the most efficient in this field. There is a huge amount of colloquial language to learn and familiarize yourself with but how do you know what are the most important are most typically used phrases? I don't waste time teaching you stuff you can't apply or won't come across in real life. I truly believe my lessons plans are some of the most efficient around.

Exam preparation

When teaching in Spain and Brazil I was working in academies which prepared people for the Cambridge exams. I have also examined many students who were hoping to pass these examinations. I have amassed a lot of experience in the way these exams are formatted and I know first hand what an examiner looks for when judging a students capacity to communicate and how the final mark is evaluated.

Okay, so why choose me?

There are so many options right! Well, Firstly when hiring a teacher you need to know what you are going to get and I believe having some chemistry is massively important as when you are having fun in a lesson the chances of learning and obtaining information are hugely increased. I try my utmost to make my lessons as fun and as dynamic as possible and vary in subject. I obviously adapt to people’s interests and personality’s but I believe an ABC process of learning a language is not always the best way to make sufficient progress. I have taught people from every level and it is difficult to say what level I enjoy most teaching as every level brings unique challenges. For people who have an advanced level I make my lessons challenging and try to make my students realize and appreciate that the steps to fluency don’t have to be painstaking, instead they can be a lot of fun. Simply put not many people are great at something they have zero passion for.

More about me!

I will describe myself as a typical Eng-lander despite my habit of living in foreign countries. I love tea, fish and chips and in my spare time play golf and cricket so you could say I am a walking stereotype but I have not yet had tea with the Queen due to my busy schedule. It is always nice talking about differences in culture and I love to share a laugh with my students when appropriate.

Final thoughts

So, if you have made it through to the end I salute you and if I haven’t sent you asleep why not book a trial lesson with me and see if what I claim is at all accurate? Have a good day and good luck in your mission whatever it may be.
