I've been teaching English to students preparing for IELTS and Cambridge exams for 3 years. I've taught Business English. I have also taught literature to students preparing for the SAT test in English Literature. * About my methodology: It's important to find out your level and begin studying at that level or the next one. It's also important to use a lot of different materials and to dedicate time to all of the skills. All the skills are linked together so that when you learn more vocabulary and grammar, your speaking and writing skills improve.

The more time your dedicate the faster your progress will be. * When you book a trial lesson, I'll be in contact with you to find out what your level is, and your goals so that we can work out the best study plan for you.

Hello 😊 My name is Nicola (29 years old). I am an experienced teacher from Cairns (in Australia). In Cairns, I love to walk up mountains, swim in waterfalls and lakes, and snorkel in our Great Barrier Reef. I love my home, but I also love to travel. At the moment, I am travelling through Latin America. I am speaking Spanish. My Spanish is at an intermediate level. Around 8 years ago, I graduated from university with a Bachelor of Education in primary (elementary) school teaching. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Sustainability. In addition, I have a Graduate Certificate of Education in Early Childhood Studies and A TEFL qualification (for teaching English). I received an ‘outstanding’ grade for my TEFL qualification because of my experience and my love for teaching. Because of my teaching experience and studies, I can teach from young children all the way through to adults. I can teach from beginners all the way through to the advanced levels (including academic). I can teach students from any language background. In my lessons, the most important thing for me is that you speak as much English as possible (even at the beginning stages). I will track your progress and use many tools to help you do this. I teach grammar and vocabulary together to help you communicate from the very beginning. I look forward to our lessons. Thank you 😊
I'm a certified English tutor (TESOL) and a University Teaching Assistant/ PhD Candidate. I have an Engineering and Business background(Petroleum Engineering) with Master's and Bachelor's Degree. I also prepare people for IELTS, TOEFL, CAE and other English Test examinations as well as BUSINESS ENGLISH. To say that I love Teaching will be an understatement. My whole life currently is centered around teaching as I spend the most part of my day teaching university students. My future goal is to work as a University Professor. Teaching a language, unlike teaching technical subjects requires patience, varying techniques and methods that are student-centered and that is one of the reasons I love doing this. It encapsulates the efficient use of the five main senses of human beings and how proper channeling of it can produce a 'wow' effect. I usually take my students through the 4 main skills (speaking, writing, reading, listening). Students will practice pronunciations, intonations , accent reductions and all that there is to English speaking. Improvements of grammar, Use of appropriate vocabulary and active listening skills will all be tackled. To do all of this, I employ the use of relevant teaching methods(role playing, controlled discussions, word drilling, etc), study materials (audios, videos, flashcards, games, etc) and a lot of other procedures..
