I am passionate about helping my students learn English and I am uniquely suited to communicating in situations where English is a second language. This is because I come from a multi-lingual and cultural background. I grew-up in an English and Indian/East-African family. I have lived in Scotland, England, Italy and the U.S. I speak English, Italian and French. I have always lived between cultures and languages, so I embrace the diversity of my students' languages and cultures.
I teach all levels and ages of student. I focus on teaching students by building their confidence to communicate in whichever way(s) they choose: conversation, reading or writing. I use different media: video, articles, text books, songs, movies and literature, which can all be shared through an interactive on-line platform or through in-person lessons. I really enjoy getting to know my students: engaging them through their interests and needs.
I have fifteen years of language teaching experience, five ...

Nina is very nice. As an adult, it is sometimes difficult to learn a new language because you are embarrassed to make mistakes. Nina makes you feel comfortable.
The lessons are organised and are going in a rhythm that you can follow.

Over the years I have taught English to students of all races, nationalities and ethnicities. Additionally, living in New York, an extremely diverse city, has necessitated great flexibility on my part. I teach reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and proper pronunciation, but because I work with so many "non-native speakers", I have learned to be very patient and methodical in my approach, customizing the lesson to each student and breaking the steps down as much as is necessary. I have also become quite familiar with many of the handicaps associated with specific ethnic groups when trying to learn English. Overall, as an English teacher I welcome the additional challenge and I always look forward to the opportunity for cultural exchange as well.

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize l
essons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!
