Hello, I'm Matt
Would you like to build your confidence in English?
Then let's make this happen.
I 'coach' clients helping them master their understanding, pronunciation, fluency and confidence in speaking and using English.
We will develop your English skills outside the confines of traditional classroom teaching methods.
Through coaching, we explore English in a broader context and apply it to your personal, professional or business needs.
Everyday language, phrases and vocabulary
Understanding questions and spoken English
Preparing for exams
Letter writing, emails and telephone skills
Presentations and meetings
CV content, LinkedIn profiles and interview practice
Website content and format
Using English for professional communication , business activities and training your staff.
I have helped Directors, managers, researchers, consultants, teachers, writers, students and parents with children all achieve their goals.
I work with clients in Paris and overseas, face to face and via the web.
It's my opinion that real use of English is about more than just language.
I understand how English can be used as an important and powerful tool to achieve goals in your life.

I work as an English coach alongside a professional career as an Independent Consultant to global retail brands in the field of visual communication.
As a consultant, I manage projects and presentations, I research and design, I coach and train people and I also get to travel. I love what I do and the people I meet.
Whether a company, a team or an individual client, I bring new ideas, provide solutions and create improvements all to achieve greater things.
The many skills I have developed through consulting are skills that I share with my clients as an English Coach:
Motivation - to inspire and build confidence
Creative thinking - to explore with imagination and a new perspective.
It was from my own experience of language learning that I decided to create British English Coaching (british-english-coaching .com)
A high quality service sharing all my expertise to help you achieve YOUR dream.
I speak with a clear neutral British English accent.
Before locating to Paris, I lived in London for 17 years.
Educated in Business and Finance, I've worked as a creative manager with an LVMH brand, with fashion and lifestyle retail brands, on marketing events, international trade fairs, photo shoots, fashion shows, magazine editorial and even in television.
I'm fascinated by visual marketing and commercial communication and the psychology of self-confidence, motivation and survival.

Perfect! A bit about me and the coaching sessions . . .
After 10 years in the UK, I made a career change from engineer to UX designer.
My new job is more people facing and I need to talk to a range of audiences, facilitate workshops and presentations. My communication was not at the level I wanted and I needed to improve.
I’ve never spent money on coaching.
The three things in the back of my mind were - would it be worth it, do I really need it and would I have a good working dynamic with you.
It was definitely value for money!
At first I was reluctant to adjust my communication as I thought I’d lose part of my identity. I’m naturally a funny person. I thought being professional and to the point did not allow being fun. I’d lose that side of me. Through our sessions I totally changed my mindset.
My communication has improved and I’ve maintained my personality.
Still being the same person but a new version. Thanks to what I call building the ‘New Me’, I feel empowered and more confident.
In workshops, 1-2-1s and meetings, people listen to me, I don’t feel nervous and I get results. Life has improved massively and is a lot easier.
Understanding my problems and how to solve them quickly is life changing.
A bit about Matt . . .
I liked your pragmatic approach, you’re very calm and you created a safe space. You were very honest but without being disrespectful or making me feel uncomfortable. You’re very positive, I liked that. The sessions were always fresh and dynamic.
Thanks for everything. For understanding what mood I was in, in each of our sessions. You didn’t judge.
Thank you very much Matt.

Lucia, it’s been a pleasure working with you and seeing the progress you made!
Keep up the great work. You’ll be giving a TED talk sooner than you think ;)
I found the confidence to go for a promotion and I got it!
You made me feel stronger and believe in myself.
Our focus on my confidence at work has really helped me. I’m assertive and dive in a lot more. People have noticed I’m so much more organised, calmer and relaxed. I feel on top of it and I’m pushing myself because you’ve made me see that I CAN do it.
I now come up with more ideas and look ahead rather than put things off.
It’s important for everyone to have a goal they can reach. To set yourself a challenge like I did, then go for it and achieve it.
It’s been good to explore. To get a better, stronger understanding of myself.
You listened and came up with questions to deepen my thinking.
I was a bit worried what you might think of me at first Matt, but you’re very easy to talk to and understanding.
You were really good with me, it was relaxed and I could open up quite a lot to you without feeling anxious. It was a comfortable environment where I could be very open and honest.
You’re very reliable and you were there for me as support.
It just comes naturally to you.
A big thank you :)

Working with Matt’s like unblocking a terrible traffic jam. However good your friends are, they don’t sit and ask you the right questions to get the best out of you. I now see that I’m good at loads of things and I’m the only person who can get that out there and show it to the world.
I had a block around my own value and worth. Particularly being able to charge for things, valuing my knowledge and skills.
I’ve been able to clarify what I offer and who are the people I intend to help. This is what my service is worth and to showcase that worth.
I’ve set myself into a position where I can earn more from what I do.
It feels really good and I feel more empowered.
You’re very calm and grounded, very clear. You’re able to read quite easily between the lines, what’s being said and you see the recurring patterns with relative ease. I’m following your example in my work.
J’ai contacté Matt parce que j’avais besoin de parler l’anglais au travail, mais aussi parce que je voulais améliorer mon anglais dans la vie courante.
Sur le plan professionnel, il fallait que je présente et vendre en anglais des objets d’art dans un salon international. Bien qu’il n’y ait pas suffisamment de temps pour la préparation, Matt a tout fait afin que je puisse accomplir ma mission. Il m’a enseigné comment accueillir les clients et comment décrire des objets de manière à la fois simple et efficace. Il m’a également entraîné en faisant des jeux de rôles. Enfin il m’a fait une liste de vocabulaire qui m’a très bien servi. Toutes les séances étaient vraiment passionnantes. Grâce aux cours de Matt, je suis arrivée à communiquer avec les clients anglophones avec aisance. Cette expérience m’a permis d’avoir confiance en mes compétences en anglais.
Avec lui, apprendre l’anglais n’est plus fastidieux, au contraire, c’est un réel plaisir et je peux me rendre compte de mes progrès. Nos séances de coaching sont passionnantes et productives. Je me sens plus en confiance et plus motivée. Cette motivation intense et continue est le fruit le plus grand que m’ont donné les cours de mon coach.
Ce que j’aime le plus, c’est d’avoir des conversations avec lui. J’apprends la prononciation, la grammaire, le lexique et même la culture anglaise. Matt est doué pour simplifier des sujets compliqués.
C’est d’autant plus amusant qu’il a le sens d’humour et qu’il propose des sujets variés. Je me sens plus à l’aise à l’oral par rapport au début.
J’apprécie beaucoup sa personnalité en tant que coach. Il est sérieux, attentionné, à l’écoute, patient et ponctuel. Il sait motiver ses élèves et les soutenir. C’est un homme de confiance.
Je vais continuer à apprendre l’anglais avec Matt et aussi vivement le recommander aux autres.
