My name is Matthew L. Akingbade and, as my service title states, I am a 1st class (Hons.) Bachelor degree graduate and TEFL teacher giving free trial ESL English lessons online.
I come from a background in Computer Science, specialising in Computer Games Development, and have recently completed the TEFL 120 hours teaching course with flying colours - and an eagerness to share my original style of teaching online.
Since 2001, attending a six month Japanese language proficiency course in Okinawa Japan and studying the game culture of Japan, I have been developing a portfolio of language teaching games that educate while entertaining people.
Today, I have honed my craft as an English teacher with an original M.O. for teaching online.
Take advantage of my free trail lesson offer to learn English effectively today!
I feel my teaching craft has been honed by the following experiences:
- Sixteen years in studying and developing language teaching games
(consisting of self guided study between 2001 to 2011 and University course aided study from 2011 to 2017 - see my CV for details).
- Sixteen years of being mentored from teachers in my family; including my brother who has lived in Japan teaching English at a language school called IAC ((concealed information) ever since completing the Japanese Exchange Teacher (JET) program in 2001.
Students can suggest more subjects that they would like to be taught per lesson as to get more value for their lessons.
Lessons can be discounted and even free lessons can be earned as students earn credits for consistently completing their set tasks at a certain standard.
