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,

Beginners: You will learn how I learned when I earned advanced certification in Thai while living in Chiang Mai, Thailand Using the TPR method, we'll cover listening, speaking, and writing!

Intermediate: Depending on where you are at, we can cover reading comprehension, grammar, and sentence structure. WARNING! I may recommend going back over pronunciations, which can be tedious and frustrating, but well worth the effort!

About Mike

YOUNG BEGINNERS: After your first 10 sessions with me, your son or daughter will have completed a few workbooks and memorized a couple new songs. Whether it is to impress friends, land a gig, or to feel a sense of pride as a growing musician, I can't wait to celebrate your child's success with you!

"I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor."
