Hi! My name is Nina and I am an Oakland University graduate with a B.A. in Japanese, a minor in Studio Art and extensive study in American Sign Language (ASL) and Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL).
I have tutored school age children at the YMCA, college students in Japanese and Sign Language at the Oakland University Tutoring Center and am currently tutoring ESL/EFL with the Oakland Literacy Council. I have also taught privately for 3 years and received tutor certifications from both OU and OLC.
I am very patient and understanding of different learning style/paces, skilled at making personalized lessons/curriculum, flexible, fun and give extra exercise/practice in difficult topics. When tutoring, I use mixed methods to help a student learn such as reading, writing, listening exercises, quizzes, conversation practice, and cultural education.
If you would be interested in lessons, I would be very happy to speak with you! Please reach out to me anytime!
Nina was able to convince me learning online can be just as easy as learning in person.
Great teacher, she moves at my pace and adapts to my knowledge. Also a very charming personality, I find myself eager for Monday's.
