About Nicholas

I have recently resided in Korea for over 5 years, teaching English to Koreans of all ages. I have also done some one on one tutoring as well.

For five years, I was a teacher at Woosong University in Daejeon, South Korea. Here, I expanded my teaching range to include Business English, Travel English and courses pertaining to music. I was able to design lesson plans more tailored to specific student needs as well, supplementing textbooks with various major-related materials. While teaching there, I also acquired a TEFL certificate from the group “International TEFL and TESOL Training”. This certificate and other courses in grammar have greatly improved my understanding of various aspects of teaching English as a foreign language.

The academy I was initially employed in Korea, "Chung Dahm Institute,” is considered one of the most rigorous in a country known for its exceptional educational standards. I approached English from a myriad of perspectives there; including reading, writing, speaking, acting, grading and overseeing special projects.

In addition to teaching Koreans, I also have some teaching experience in the U.S. I have worked with the “Horizons Initiative” in Boston, Massachusetts, tutoring and overseeing homeless children. The work I did with these youth mainly consisted of helping them with their Math and English homework. I have also taught college students basic carpentry skills while working with “Appalachia Habitat for Humanity” in rural Scott County, Tennessee, U.S.A. Most recently, I have worked at F.L.S. in Boston.

I have extensive experience teaching and I have a CELTA and TEFL certificiation.

I am able to help students.

Great lesson as always! — Today we've been talking about my favorite food and topics concerning restaurants. Our work was very fruitful and I think this conversation will help me in my work. Along with that we'd also practiced to use present perfect simple and present perfect continuous. These topics are still complicated for me but the lessons with Nicholas motivate me a lot and everything seems achievable. ...
