Hello. I am Teacher Matt. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education / English and Spanish. I am 58 and I have been living in San Diego and teaching English/ESL for 30 years. I currently teach an ESL class at Miramar College and I am looking to expand my tutoring options. I’ve been teaching adult students (16 and over) for 30 years. I am an expert in ESL, TOEFL, IELTS, FCE and CAE.
My strength is explaining Grammar in an understandable and fun way and then practicing it a lot with my students in writing and conversation activities.

I have a YouTube channel. The videos show me in my “classic form” explaining grammar lessons in one or two minutes in a fun and understandable way.

I am also excellent at helping students with Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Vocabulary. I use a variety of resources during my online lessons. I have online textbooks, websites and e-worksheets that we can use. Also, I have taken the TOEFL test recently myself and I can supply current feedback, tips and strategies.

Please let me know if you’d like me to help you.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He did an excellent job teaching grammar rules. He was very patient and was able to explain everything that made sense to me. He is very charismatic which made our tutoring fun and productive. I highly recommend.
