Hello.

I originally started my career in education as a music teacher. After working as a freelance musician and also participating an international arts camp, I accepted a position teaching in South Africa in the heart of the Afrikaans culture just after the end of apartheid. I enjoyed that experience so much that I decided to travel more. Thus, I changed careers and became an English as a second language teacher. My first job was in South Korea, where I also began my study of the Korean language. Then, I lived in Brasil where I learned Portuguese. Then, I returned to work in South Korea and also continue my study of the Korean language. I spent a lot of time in China, too.

Following working for 2 years in Korea, I learned Spanish and accepted a job as a multilingual interpreter (Spanish/ Portuguese/ Korean to and from English) in Philadelphia, a very aggressive city! Escaping the big city led me back to teaching music for a year.

For 9 years, I operated a small language education business in South Korea where I taught English and also began bringing students from Korea to the USA to improve their English. I have returned to the USA and am now bringing students from Korea for 6 weeks to 3 months for a cultural and scholastic experiential English education.

I have also been studying biochemistry at university on a part-time basis for several years. My strengths are chemistry, nutrition, and anatomy and physiology.

I love education both as a student and a teacher. It has proven to be my life long passion.

I am a current biochemistry major at university. I am particularly interested in tutoring Anatomy and Physiology and Organic Chemistry.

I have over 15 years experience teaching languages. I am capable of speaking 7 languages. The key is to understand the process of language acquisition. When we use our natural linguistic abilities, our capabilities are impressive.

Great tutor!

He helps me to improve my English. I arrived from Eastern Europe and I have some problems with my pronunciation. He has a big experience teaching foreign students. Also, he helps me with grammar and writing. He is a very communicative tutor. Matthew was positive and helpful in the lessons. I am going to continue my studies with this tutor.
