About Nick

I am a flexible, understanding, and enthusiastic teacher. I have over six years experience as a teacher in a range of situations, including:
-elementary, secondary, and college-level classes
-teaching in a one-on-one or small group setting
-teaching overseas and with students from around the world
I'm happy to negotiate lesson details or discuss the needs of students before beginning lessons. I am a positive, sensitive tutor, and I'm happy to help connect dedicated students with the tools and resources to reach their educational goals.

I have a degree in English, with an emphasis on creative writing. As a college instructor of English Composition in Michigan, I taught a diverse range of students and received very positive feedback from students that continued well after they completed the course. Focuses include structuring essays, increasing critical thinking and rhetoric ability, improving grammar and mechanics usage, developing effective writing styles, and helping students understand English as empowering, meaningful, and fun. I have also taught about broader educational subjects at a college level in a "First Year Experience" college course in Washington state.

I have over three years of professional experience teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESOL). I have taught overseas in Asia and Africa, and I have taught students from around the world that have come to America. I use a variety of effective teaching methods and I work with students with all levels of English ability. I can help students improve in all areas of English, or if a student wishes, I can focus on specific areas. For example I can help students with a specific area of Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, Vocabulary, Idioms and Expressions, Grammar, Translating, or Functions (including English for Employment, Academics, Travel, or other Special Purposes).

As a double-major, I studied Asian Studies and have lived overseas for over 4 years in several Asian countries. I have taught about intercultural communication and understanding in my college course in Washington state, where I also served as an Academic Advisor for students from overseas.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have over three years of professional experience teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESOL). I have taught overseas in Asia and Africa, and I have taught students from around the world that have come to America. I use a variety of effective teaching methods (including CLT, CLIL, PPP, CLL, Direct Method, Functional-Notional Syllabi,Task-based) and I work with students with all levels of English ability. I can help students improve in all areas of English, or if a student wishes, I can focus on specific areas.

TOEFL

I am very familiar with the test and have helped many non-native English speakers prepare for taking the TOEFL. Students I have worked with have seen a big improvement in their scores on practice tests.

Writing

I have a degree in English, with an emphasis on creative writing. As a college instructor of English Composition, I received very positive feedback from students that continued well after they completed the course. Focuses include structuring essays, increasing critical thinking and rhetoric ability, improving grammar and mechanics usage, developing effective writing styles, and helping students understand English as empowering, meaningful, and fun.
