Hello everyone. My name is Matthew, and I’m a teacher here at ULC. I’m originally from Canada, but I came to Singapore to escape the cold. I spend most of my free time with my wife and kid, but when I’m not hanging out with them, I like to write short stories and play the ukulele. Occasionally, I also go for walks in the various nature reserves around Singapore in order to take in the beautiful scenery and get a glimpse of some of the wildlife. (Feel free to ask me about the crocodiles, snakes, and other interesting animals I’ve seen here!)
When it comes to teaching, my favourite part is the look on my students’ faces when a difficult topic is suddenly clear. That’s why I always take my time, give thorough explanations, and make sure to answer every question. It might not be the easiest language, but English is a fascinating subject and well worth the time you spend studying. I hope you’re as enthusiastic about learning it as I am about teaching it.
