Matthew Noble

Matthew Noble, USA, Adult, Training, TEFL

Matt found his calling in English language teaching as a volunteer instructor at an ancient Buddhist monastery in Sri Lanka in 2004. He completed his CELTA in Bangkok, Thailand the following year and went on to teach at language centers, corporate headquarters, elementary and high schools, test prep programs, and as a private tutor for the next 6 years abroad.

In 2011 he came home to earn an EdM in TESOL from Boston University while also teaching English to low-income immigrants in the Boston area and leading online seminars on Reflective Practice for teachers. ‘Teacher learning’ being a primary focus of his graduate work, Matt was thrilled to become a CELTA trainer and carries this enthusiasm with him into each and every course. In his free time Matt enjoys listening to world music, reading mystery novels, and engaging social media.

Muddles into Maxims
An ELT blog; a fun and functional place for me to share some of my thoughts and reflections on the training I help facilitate and the teacher learning I witness as a course tutor on an intensive initial certificate course (and trainer learning, too!). Also, thoughts/ideas/reflections on related teaching matters.
