About Mateo

Hello, I've taught ESL in Montevideo, Uruguay and Lima, Peru where I was an intern in the US Embassies.

I was a top collegiate athlete and can help with soccer, swimming, basketball, tennis, track, and cross-country. I was one of the best players in the country in my teens.

I am in Chapel Hill now to be near my family but my true love is the Pacific Northwest!

I can help teach English to the most advanced ESL students or professionals.

I was an investment banker.

I have 5 years of experience teaching ESL in South America. I'm very good at advancing fluency and conversation. I'm fluent in Spanish, and lived in Peru for 8 years! I also studied Spanish and International Business in Spain.

I'm smart, friendly and fun! Let's learn!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Basketball

I played competitive basketball for more than 10 years and through high school. I have gone to many camps and can definitely help the next generation improve their game. I have unique strategies to set a player apart from the pack!

ESL/ESOL

Hello, my name is Mateo and I have over ten years of experience teaching ESL. I've taught in the US Embassies of Montevideo and Lima while I lived there and have helped hundreds of students expand their conversational confidence, improve their professional aptitude, and prepare for exams and business meetings.

I have also done many important works of translation as well as consulting services to prep and improve specific technical goals for students.

I am especially adept at raising the bar for already fluent adult speakers who want to fine tune their comprehension, working grammar, conversation and overall ease with genre-specific language.

I have broad interests, read constantly on a variety of subjects and can inspire a conversation to instigate a learning experience.

I have an undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia, BS, Commerce, with a concentration in Finance. I first worked for a major bank, then the State Department, and for the past twelve years have run my own design company based out of Lima, Peru, with my sales based in Northern California.

My family is based in Chapel Hill and therefore I live here for now and I look forward to meeting lots of great new students via this exciting app, Wyzant!

I look forward to hearing from you,
Mateo.

Soccer

I grew up playing soccer nearly every day of my life from the age of 3 to 20. I attended dozens of elite camps and won many local, state and regional team championships. I was on several nationally ranked club teams and I was recruited by top universities to play on their varsity teams. I am more than prepared to teach soccer at the highest level.

Study Skills

Hello, Wyzant, I am a very disciplined student and have mastered many techniques for focus, memory, and academic performance. I won a full scholarship for Polymer Chemistry and after graduation became a full-time banker for JPMorgan. I would now like to help others with their studying skills.

Swimming

I swam competitively from the age of 6 to the age of 17 and was a top ranked swimmer in the state of Virginia. I was recruited to swim in varsity college teams. I know all the strokes and strategies to optimize efficiency. I would now like to pass my knowledge on to the next generation.

Tennis

I played competitive tennis from the age of 6 to 15 and attended many elite camps. I studied the game with some of the nation's best coaches and would now like to pass on my knowledge to new students.

Track & Field

I was a nationally ranked runner from junior high school through university. I won a scholarship to run track and cross-country at NC State where my cross country team became ACC champions. I would now like to pass on my knowledge to the next generation.

Yoga

I have been an Iyengar yoga instructor since 2002 when I was living in Berkeley, California and studying under some of the great teachers.
