About me

Hi, I am Matt from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in the UK.

I am friendly, punctual and patient. I love to help people with English learning, I have been an ESL teacher for over 10 years. I have taught all ages and levels with people from many different cultures, nationalities and occupations. Feel free to talk about whatever you want.

After teaching in different countries for 10 years I am now living back in England. I teach online, and also own and run a Bed and breakfast guesthouse where I often introduce foreign visitors to my hometown, tutor them and sometimes go hiking with them in the hills that surround my village.

In my free time I like to hike, swim, go to the gym, read, write, watch F1, as well as keeping up with current affairs, politics and men's style. But most of all I love to travel.

Teaching Approach

I am friendly and patient and always professional and punctual.

Together we will high light the goals you want to achieve. Lesson topics can range from job interview questions and meetings, to discussions based on magazine articles, TED talks, or general social conversation. Alternatively if you have anything you need checked or problems you may have (e.g. an email or presentation) this will be the lesson topic; your needs come first.

Warm Up: I will present the material to you, explain any words, phrases you don't know, and answer any questions that you have.

Main Body: Discussion session - the majority of which will be the student talking with me, your tutor giving grammar and pronunciation corrections.

Wrap Up: Review new vocabulary and grammar from the lesson. Introduce some material for the next lesson.

I have taught all levels and understand your difficulties and frustrations. My priority is for you to achieve your language targets. All lessons are tailored just for you.

There is always some off-topic things to discuss with Matt, which gives the lessons a friendly atmosphere.

I am especially happy that Matt corrects my pronunciation. He even keeps a record of the mispronounced words. But you`ll never feel judged, you`ll always feel supported by his corrections.

Great teacher, great lesson :-). I`ll definitely continue with Matt, because he`s an easy-going and light-hearted guy. Yet, he`s qualified and corrects your pronunciation meticulously. I appreciate his approach of reading texts aloud.
