From FinlandLiving in Helsinki (Helsingfors), Finland (06:56 UTC+02:00)
italki teacher since Nov 14, 2021
I'm Matias, a language nerd who enjoys cooking and watching movies. Besides learning Swedish and Japanese, I work as an assistant teacher and coach a kids' jiu jitsu team. Having taught kids so much, I know how to explain new consepts in an easily understandable and fun way. Also, playing games and doing different activities is something I enjoy doing with my students.
I'm eager to learn about foreign cultures so I'm excited to get to know more about your country. Looking forward to meeting you!
Me as a Teacher
I'm here to help! No need to worry about making mistakes or "not knowing enough Finnish" since my lessons are relaxed. My lessons have a positive and cheering atmosphere so that you'll feel comfortable speaking Finnish.
I have taught a variety of different lessons and adapt my style to every student. I've helped students pass the YKI test, improve their conversational skills and helped with reading and pronunciation to name a few.
Since I'm from Helsinki, I speak standard Finnish and not in a dialect. I try to speak naturally, as any Finn would speak to you in the "real world", so that you get experience with spoken Finnish.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are tailored to your needs. Whether you want to pass the YKI test or simply improve your conversational skills, I can guarantee that I'll help you achieve your goals efficiently and in a motivating way.
All requests and ideas for lessons are welcome! As a teacher I'm very flexible so feel free to message me and we can discuss together how you woudl like me to help you.
