Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!

Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

If your goal is to live in Canada or the United States, or if you’re already living there and you’re finding it difficult to connect with people, I can help you learn the English you need to make new friends, communicate with colleagues, and adapt to your new life more easily.

Clients usually come to me with the same problem: they want to speak English with more fluency and confidence, and they don’t know how.

If you're reading this, then you're probably facing a similar challenge.

You want to tell your stories and express yourself freely, but when speaking in English, you get stuck! You feel that your character narrows, and you struggle to find the right words.

But what’s blocking you from speaking in English with fluency and confidence?

Maybe you think that you’re not good at learning languages, or that English is strange and impossible to master.

But from my experience, I can guarantee you: your English ability is like a muscle. If you train it correctly, it will ...

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,
