Having lived abroad myself, I understand how difficult it can be to both learn a new language, and culture. Because of this, as a teacher I am calm, patient, understanding and encouraging.
I have experience teaching students who have only just begun to practice English, as well as high-level speakers who are aiming for language fluency. Whether you are struggling to speak, trying to write the perfect essay at school, or trying to master the English language, I'm here to help!
I cater my lessons to my students, hoping that by doing so they are challenged to improve, while being comfortable and positively supported.
I'm a teacher with over 7 years of experience teaching students English as an Additional Language. I previously lived in Japan, where I taught over 600 students at a number of prestigious universities. I have experience teaching all student levels, from students with a IELTS score of 1.0 up to those with a 9.0.
I am able to help students improve all of their English skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing, as well as areas like academic writing, business English, cultural awareness and conversational English. Having worked at universities, I'm very familiar with tests such as IELTS and TOEIC, and am able to assist students in improving their scores.
I also have experience teaching other age groups too, such as pre-school and adults in business classes. No matter your age or English level, I welcome all learners to try a lesson with me!
I am able to provide lessons in my office at 118 Queen Street in Melbourne, as well as online and in your home. No matter where you choose to take a lesson with me, the price for one lesson is $30 - simple!
I am happy to travel up to 40km to provide lessons, but doing so may incur an additional travel fee.
If you live further than 40km outside of the Melbourne CDB, arranging lessons may still be possible upon negotiation. Please contact me for further inquiry.

I’d been learning English from him for seven years in Japan! Still, I keep having his online lessons.
He has a wide range of interests, teaches with various kinds of hot topics based on his profound knowledge, without textbooks. (Of course, he can use textbooks for you if you want!)
He’d lived in Japan for some ages and taught many Japanese students at schools and universities as a professional teacher. So he’s so familiar with Japanese national character and the points that Japanese English learners easily get stuck in.
At the start of my learning, I could hardly comprehend what he was getting at. I couldn’t speak English well, either. But now, with his great support, I can understand most of the native speakers no matter how fast they naturally talk and I’ve come to be able to speak English with little difficulty. (Not perfectly, though!)
Matt is a gentle, nice person and fond of teaching!
I can confidently recommend him!
