About Me
italki teacher since Jul 18, 2019
<<NO CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OLD>> Hi, I'm Matt! I love sharing with people from different places so I started traveling a lot and learning Spanish and Portuguese. I'm from the US but lived for years in S. Korea and Iraq. Now I live in Brazil! I've been an upholsterer, a soldier, a journalist, and a tank mechanic among other things. I'm an aspiring Youtuber in the process of creating two new Youtube channels. I enjoy climbing, play a little guitar, and am into martial arts having studied TKD, Karate, MMA, and jiujitsu. I like science, technology, and pop culture podcasts. I live with my wonderful Brazilian fiancée and two enormous Maine Coon cats. I am always looking for adventure!

The lesson with Matthew always brings good emotions, I become more confident in English, after a lesson I feel that all my mistakes in English are just temporal, it's good to notice and correct them, but you don't have to treat them like a disaster! Just keep on learning and practicing, and the mistakes will be no more in no time.

It's been almost half a year I haven't been practicing English and haven't seen Matt, so this was the moment I've been really looking forward to!!! Matt is my favourite teacher, I am always happy to have a lesson with him, there are always interesting and vibrant topics to discuss and it's just extremely nice talking to Matt!

I had a real lot of lessons with Matthew. I can say for sure that he is a great teacher and a very interesting and fun interlocutor. He is the one who will break your language barrier. Saying from all my heart, I am waiting every meeting with a joy. Matthew is a very patient, careful and is talented in a game of words guessing. You will be able to work on your mistakes, grammar, pronunciation. Matthew is meeting your individual requirements, desires. PS How many mistakes have I done, Matthew?:)
