Introduction:

TEFL-Certified English Teacher with 3 Years of Experience and a Passion for Conversational English.

Hello! I'm Nic, and I am thrilled to share my passion for teaching English with potential students. As an experienced educator, I am dedicated to helping my students build their confidence in conversational English and achieve their language goals.

Beyond the classroom, I am an avid hiker and traveler, always seeking new adventures and experiences. I also love playing music and dancing, and I find these activities to be a great way too relax and express myself.

When I'm not teaching or exploring the great outdoors, I enjoy creating art with modeling clay and painting. These creative pursuits allow me to tap into my artistic side and express myself in new and exciting ways.

Overall, I am committed to providing my students with the best possible learning experience, and I am passionate about helping them achieve their dreams. Whether you're just starting out on your language learning journey or looking to take your skills to the next level, I would be honored to be your teacher and guide.

Teaching Specialty:

Topics › News Articles

Staying updated with the news is an excellent way to delve deeper into a culture and acquire valuable vocabulary. We can read and discuss an article together to ensure full comprehension and to enhance our language skills.

Topics › Discussion

Before our session, I typically share some topic suggestions for us to consider discussing. However, I'm also completely open to free-flowing conversation on any subject that interests you. Feel free to share your thoughts or any topics you have in mind, and we can explore them together during our session.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

Engaging in conversation is often the primary motivation for people learning English. By facilitating open discussions, students can relax and build confidence expressing themselves on a range of topics. This approach not only fosters language fluency but also introduces new vocabulary in a natural and meaningful way.

English Basics › Vocabulary / Useful Phrases

I believe expressions and idioms offer a unique insight into language and culture. They provide a colorful and nuanced way of expressing ideas that goes beyond literal translation. I enjoy sharing these gems because they not only enhance vocabulary but also deepen our understanding of different cultures and how language reflects societal norms and values. It's a fun and enriching way to explore language and broaden our communication skills!

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

Mastering correct pronunciation is crucial for effective communication and boosting confidence in speaking English. I take great joy in assisting students to enhance their pronunciation skills and become more self-assured in expressing themselves.
