How are you doing? What are you up to? what's up and what's down?Phrasal verbs are a nightmare right? why can't we just say what we mean? Well that would be boring wouldn't it? ;)

Through teaching I have realized that there are certain phrasal verbs in which as a native you wouldn't think about not using in a natural conversation. Here is one example. If I wanted to know if you have a good relationship with your boss I am likely to ask "Do you get along with your boss" if you need to collect your children from school I might ask "What time do you have to pick up your children?"

You might be wondering why everything is up! we get up, we wash up, we make up lies, we back up our friends, we stand up to adversity, we give up when things frustrate us and we try to live up to our parents expectations and we mess up opportunities given to us.

My advice to anyone who is put off by phrasal verbs is to embrace them and see them for what they are. Peculiar and wonderful

Hello. My name is Matthew and welcome to my profile. I have a master's degree from the university of Bristol and have been teaching English for nearly three years now. I have experience of living in three countries Brazil, Spain and Italy and I am now currently back settled in my hometown of Bristol, England. I am in love with my profession and always welcome the chance to create a strong bond with my students. Business English Two years ago I decided to specialize in Business English and interview preparation. Many people decide to learn English for work related reasons and I believe my lessons are some of the most efficient in this field. There is a huge amount of colloquial language to learn and familiarize yourself with but how do you know what are the most important are most typically used phrases? I don't waste time teaching you stuff you can't apply or won't come across in real life. I truly believe my lessons plans are some of the most efficient around. Exam preparation When teaching in Spain and Brazil I was working in academies which prepared people for the Cambridge exams. I have also examined many students who were hoping to pass these examinations. I have amassed a lot of experience in the way these exams are formatted and I know first hand what an examiner looks for when judging a students capacity to communicate and how the final mark is evaluated. Okay, so why choose me? There are so many options right! Well, Firstly when hiring a teacher you need to know what you are going to get and I believe having some chemistry is massively important as when you are having fun in a lesson the chances of learning and obtaining information are hugely increased. I try my utmost to make my lessons as fun and as dynamic as possible and vary in subject. I obviously adapt to people’s interests and personality’s but I believe an ABC process of learning a language is not always the best way to make sufficient progress. I have taught people from every level and it is difficult to say what level I enjoy most teaching as every level brings unique challenges. For people who have an advanced level I make my lessons challenging and try to make my students realize and appreciate that the steps to fluency don’t have to be painstaking, instead they can be a lot of fun. Simply put not many people are great at something they have zero passion for. More about me! I will describe myself as a typical Eng-lander despite my habit of living in foreign countries. I love tea, fish and chips and in my spare time play golf and cricket so you could say I am a walking stereotype but I have not yet had tea with the Queen due to my busy schedule. It is always nice talking about differences in culture and I love to share a laugh with my students when appropriate. Final thoughts So, if you have made it through to the end I salute you and if I haven’t sent you asleep why not book a trial lesson with me and see if what I claim is at all accurate? Have a good day and good luck in your mission whatever it may be.
