Nicholas is able to start at the beginning when you need to (as I did with Italian) and meet you where you are (I already had some rusty French). He is wonderfully flexible, and is using the French that I do know to help me learn the words and concepts in Italian. He is very patient and encouraging.
Nicholas is a very good tutor. I would definitely continue working with him if travel time/distance were not an issue as I prefer meeting in person than doing the work online
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.
I have had the pleasure of teaching Domestic, International Business,(International) marketing, Import Export Small Business, Business French and Small Business Analysis at San Francisco State University (1990-2007), University of San Francisco (1990-present)and Sonoma State University (1990-present).
In addition, I have owned and operated my own businesses in International Logistics and owned a Farm and nursery. This practical experience enables to illustrate for students, examples of actual business situations from which they can learn several possible solutions, outcomes. The opportunity of living, working overseas as an American expatriate provides unique proven insights on challenges face in the US and overseas. I am currently active in International and Domestic business consulting, and I serve French speaking companies active in norther California.
While teaching at San Francisco State University, I ran the international Business Internship Program for 10 years. 25% of student placed in Internships through this program resulted in full-time positions. We successfully place 5000 San Francisco State University in these initial internship positions throughout the work. Please advise if you have any questions; thanks for your consideration.
