Hello, everyone! My name is Matey. I am originally from Sofia, Bulgaria. I like to give knowledge to students and see how they improve in the learning process. Being clear, understandable and thoughtful is most important for me. My students should feel interested in the subject and learn because they want to, not because they have to. For me, teaching means care for each student and is a life-long learner. My personal interests are drawing/painting, swimming, public transportation, tourism and music.

I have taught English during summer in Bulgaria. My students were children at age of 8-16. Since they were children, the handouts with pictures and words/short sentences on them played an important role in the learning process. Also, I required a lot of participation and team work. As a teacher, it was very important all children to move forward and help each other, so that no one feels lost with the material. Fun activities included watching movies in English, writing essays, meeting a native English speaker and reading articles/comics. Having this experience already gives me an opportunity to explain clearly each lesson to older people and move forward based on their progress. I am willing to teach you Bulgarian no matter how old you are, as long as you want to learn it! My teacher experience also includes all four levels with demonstration of patience and understanding to each of my students.
