I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

I have been teaching EFL for 20 years and am a native English speaker. I've taught EFL in Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States.

I teach to each students strengths and break down the grammar into easy to comprehend portions, as well focusing on the spoken aspect of the language; since it is the most important aspect of being able to communicate in the language. I utilise pictures, word association, songs, and a variety of techniques to reinforce and remember vocabulary.

In addition, I like to break lessons into 2-3 parts to avoid boredom on the part of the student. This can also include games specifically tailored to English-language learners.

About Nicole

I am a teacher with over 20 years experience in Spanish, French, ESL, Social Studies, Cultural Anthropology, and Sociology. My philosophy of learning is that it should be fun, not just memorization. I incorporate a variety of different teaching methods to keep class interesting, such as songs,

Online ESL Teacher

Hello, welcome to my studio ! I myself am not a native speaker as I arrived in the US to live permanently when I was 7 years old. However, through my acclimation and diligent studies, I'm glad that I'm now fluent and proficient enough to believe that I can teach ESL in the beginning and intermediate levels. I have 2 summers of teaching experience teaching ESL overseas to Chinese students as well as teaching Citizenship class to immigrants. Learning English is not just about learning the words, but practicing listening and speaking in conversation. I excelled in spelling in elementary school and vocabulary in middle and high school (memorizing word-for-word on the definitions), helping me to excel in my grades and exams during those years. Hopefully, you can get some helpful learning tricks from me!

Please note: I have had a successful background check recently in Canada. If you would like to take lessons but would like to verify or get an update of my background check status

"Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!"
