About Me

I'm Matt. I specialize in teaching pronunciation skills to learners of English. I have 9 years' experience as an English teacher and an MA in Applied Linguistics. I work with students who want to learn more about the sound of English, from the pronunciation of individual sounds to sentence intonation. Students typically request my help when they are preparing for a big speech or presentation - I show them how to produce English in a natural-sounding way and to manipulate their speech for maximum effect.
