My name is Nicholas Jones, I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I always had a passion for teaching, but as any good teacher one must first learn. I studied English as a second language and today have a bachelors degree in professional communication from a US based university. I keep in constant contact with peers, friends and family and travel to visit them often, keeping my Russian current. Aside from having professional language skills working as a translator, for an American based company and for a Russian entrepreneur, I know the culture and mannerisms and as any good language course should teach would include them in the plan. Most of all I can be very flexible in my teaching style, if getting to a goal is what you are looking for, that is a direction I can be comfortable with, strictly business. If you are on the other hand, looking for an easy time and to learn as much as you can before fully committing, for example, we can have an easy going, learn at your own pace type of environment. Please just let me know what you are looking for and we can agree on what is the most comfortable scenario for you.Show More
