Hi, my name is Nikolett. I’m an online language teacher currently living in Hungary. I love travelling, getting to know new cultures, sharing information, skills, knowledge and learning from each other. I’m a positive person who enjoys all kinds of sports. Apart from language teaching and learning, my other hobby is yoga and I’m also a certified yoga instructor.
IMPORTANT: Although I have a flexible work schedule please contact me prior to your first lesson booking so we can discuss some details. In case you book a lesson but I cannot reach you beforehand I have to cancel your lesson.
Please also note that I do not offer short-term (and short-sighted) exam preparations!
Thank you for your understanding.

For me it is important to discuss the individual needs and expectations at the very beginning. Based on this, I can compile the learning material and provide an individualized service for each and every student.
I have an interactive and communicative teaching style with focus on conversation, pronunciation and vocabulary building. During the lesson, we are going to handle everyday topics but also more complex situations where you can learn how to react in a natural way and how to become an active communication partner.
I like to create a professional but joyful atmosphere where my students can feel at ease and express themselves freely.
What you can expect:
At our first lesson we get to know each other, check your current level and clarify your goals and schedule.
Then I'll provide you with authentic teaching materials, wide range of topics (depending on your interests and goals), tests, quizzes and variety of visual and audio aids to promote your progress.
After each lesson:
I'll send you some home assignments, corrections, additional learning materials, so that you can make the most out of your class. My primary aim is to maintain your motivation and support you in your learning process. In case you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
