I have over 12 years of experience teaching both English and Spanish as a foreign/second language in classrooms and as a private tutor.
I love to make my lessons fun and memorable using interesting materials, songs and games.
I make most of the material I use and I always put emphasis on oral communication which is the main reason why people study languages!
I can help you get ready for international exams (TOEFL, Cambridge English, IELTS, etc), get ready for college, and improve your chances of getting a job!

Very relaxed nature, but we covered a lot of content in our 90 minute lesson and I already feel like I'm making progress.

He's an awesome teacher, innovative, curious and energetic. You go to classes knowing it's going to be good, and that by the end of it you will learn something new.

Matías and I first met through the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching program in 2008 and have remained in touch ever since. We have worked together and collaborated thtoughout the years in various ways. Matías is a dedicated and experienced teacher who strives to create memorable and practical lessons. He likes making students think out of the box and often brings his interests to the classroom, making for a content-based class. He is creative and tries new methodologies and ideas, as he is up-to-date on the latest language teaching trends. He is also fun and kind-hearted. I strongly recommend Matías and doubt you'll find a better language teacher.
