About Matthew

Hello! I'm Matthew and I'm going to help you learn a language. I have over 16 years of full-time experience teaching English and other languages to adults around the world. I've worked and lived in Turkey, South Korea, Egypt, China, and Thailand. And now I'm back home and ready to use my skills and knowledge to help you make progress in learning English (conversation, pronunciation, grammar, academic writing, etc.).

I can also act as a "language coach", which is different than a "teacher". While a teacher controls the learning and curriculum, a coach helps you to become a successful independent language learner. As a polyglot who can speak ten languages, I know how to learn languages. I will help you develop a system that works for you to learn more efficiently, achieve results, and become fluent faster. I will teach you invaluable language-learning hacks and keep you motivated and accountable as you develop your skills in any foreign language.

I have written several successful books for learning Arabic, and one for Spanish. I can speak fluent Turkish and have experience tutoring it, as well.

I am a career teacher of English as a foreign language. I have always been, I believe, a popular teacher, able to make learning interesting and enjoyable. I am especially good at explaining grammar. I also have extensive experience helping students develop academic writing skills and college applications. My students have gone on to study around the world, including Cambridge University.

Whether you need to improve your English for life in the U.S. or university, or you want to finally make a breakthrough and take off learning a foreign language, I am here to help you. Please contact me with any questions you may have about how I can help you with your goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Arabic

I have lived in Egypt and Yemen, and am proficient in Standard Arabic and can speak the Egyptian dialect fairly fluently. I have myself written and published over a dozen books for learning Arabic.
