About Nancy

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 are in bold.

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.


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.


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 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!


I have successfully taught all four sections of the TOEFL test prep curriculum for the past three years at Inlingua, an international language school. My students have repeatedly gained at least 10 points after taking my courses, which is more than the average point gain from TOEFL preparation. I like teaching TOEFL very much, as it provides skills for critical thinking, listening, reading and writing that students can use far beyond just taking the test. How can I help you?


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!
