Matthew B :-)

Profession: Freelance English Teacher

Teaching Experience: I'm experienced with helping intermediate and advanced leveled students practice their spoken English and gain proficiency. Whether it's grammatical mistakes, incorrectly used idioms, or pronunciation errors, I can help correct them and make your spoken English more polished!

I prefer to develop speaking skills through a natural, relaxed conversation that feels like a conversation you'd have with a friend.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to work with true beginners because I can only speak English. If you're not able to speak at least basic conversational English, I'm sadly not the right tutor for you. However, once you've mastered the basics and are well on your way to becoming an intermediate English speaker, I'd love to help you improve even further and go all the way to the advanced level!
