Hello, I'm Nancy, and I'd love to help you learn English, speak English, improve your accent and your grammar.

Your learning needs and expectations will shape the classes. We will work on what you need, while improving all your skills in speaking, listening, writing and understanding English.

I have a certification in TESL/TEFL/TESOL and am currently teaching ESL at a branch of an international language school with worldwide locations, including Florida. I love my students and really enjoy teaching!

My teaching method is highly communicative - 70% student talk time, 30% teacher talk time. You will use the language in creative exercises, games and discussions and speak, speak, speak!

So, let's get started. What have you got to lose? We'll make it fun and you will learn quickly.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

My background includes over 15 years of business communications experience - writing, editing in the areas of marketing, public relations, marketing communications, advertising, speechwriting and all types of normal business writing.

I also have a certification to teach Business English to speakers of other languages.

Most importantly, I have an excellent command of English for business writing and love to teach the concepts and guiding rules to people who struggle with it.

ESL/ESOL

I've made my living from my superior writing and speaking skills in my native language : first as a B.A.graduate from a state university in Journalism, then as a corporate communications manager, tutor, and executive of a Literacy Coalition.

My teaching certification is in TESOL/TESL/TEFL with a specialization in Teaching Business English. The course was 140 hours, and covered everything from skills development to grammar, teaching strategies, fundamental language acquisition, communicative teaching theory and a practicum.

I am currently teaching group and private classes for an international language school. I love teaching and see my purpose and mission as a teacher as guiding my students to use the English language to communicate for their own purposes.

Your classes will be tailored to your needs and expectations, though we will cover all aspects of speaking, listening, pronunciation and reading.

I look forward to meetiing you!

Grammar

Grammar is essential to good communication. You can have the most extensive vocabulary in the world, but if you misuse grammar, you give away your lack of knowledge easily.

I credit my command of grammar from early grammar teachers in school, and a career using grammar and writing skills in my nonprofit and corporate jobs in communications, marketing and public relations.

I am also certified to teach grammar in my English Courses for Speakers of Other Languages. However, today many native English speakers need training in grammar as well. I would love to help you improve your grammar!

Writing

As a published author (one book and numerous freelance articles), and a lifelong practitioner of writing in my work in corporate and nonprofit communications, I offer a student both a practical and business writing background.

My written work has won awards, grants and recognition for myself and clients. Writing is my best and most developed skill, and I use it routinely in my life and work.

I would love to help you improve your writing!

Nancy’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Nancy. View all of Nancy’s resources

I was reading how some texts don't inspire or interest students. Some texts don't interest me as a teacher either! So I always supplement lessons with "Realia," real stuff from life. I'm trying to use as much technology as I can also. Realia includes things like real newspaper headlines (on a lesson like this, I bring in different types of publications...everything from the daily... read more

One of my students at a language school where I teach asked me why teachers repeatedly urged students to work on their pronunciation. She said that she and other students were always going to have an accent, so why was it so important? The answer is a simple one. It's not about losing the accent, it's about being understood. An accent is OK, as long as it doesn't detract from understanding... read more
