Matt is a very friendly and patient tutor. He was able to asses my needs clearly and focus on the gaps I needed to work on which were grammar and report writing. This resulted in me managing to obtain the necessary IELTS grades needed – for university visa entry requirement to the UK. In fact, I achieved higher grades than I actually needed which has increased my confidence generally. I would recommend him to you
Matt is a very professional, patient and friendly tutor. â€¨He teaches me a lot about English, useful phrasal verbs, Britishâ€¨ culture and life.â€¨ I always enjoy talking with him on Skype. â€¨His lessons are always well-organized and specially prepared for me.â€¨ They improve my English skill for sure.â€¨ Thank you so much Matt.
Matt is professional and patient, I am glad to have an English tutor like him. Every part of the lesson is useful for me, I will continue the lessons for many weeks.
Extremely stimulating and well organised lessons! Studying with Matt was a worthwhile experience which I hope to repeat again soon.
f you are serious about learning English and want to improve it, you should go to Matt and take lessons from him. He provides enjoyable and helpful lessons so don't hesitate to take lessons from him. In my experience he was so helpful. Thank you so much teacher Matt.
I am so grateful for your teaching. I couldn't have improved my English without you. Matt you are my favourite teacher indeed!
I enjoyed my lessons very much with Matt. He specially prepared the lessons for my personal needs. He corrected my mistakes and gave me useful suggestions for my exam. Learning English with Matt by Skype was very convenient for me because I did not have time to go to an English speaking country, therefore I could stay at my home. I can highly recommend him!
Matt, I really want to thank you for everything you did for me: for being patient, professional, careful. You're not only an excellent teacher, but also a great person. Having classes with you helped me a lot.
Lessons from Matt are really interesting! Matt teaches the whole of my family with different levels and individual topics! You can perfect your own level of grammar and real life conversation English, knowing and understanding English culture! All of it allows me to continue learning English!
I had a fantastic one to one learning experience and I am especially satisfied with the undivided attention I received from the professional tutor. I'll certainly recommend British English Online to all my friends. Thanks to Matt, I can now speak English like a native.
