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 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 5+ years and received tutor certifications from both OU and OLC.
I am very patient and understanding of different learning styles/paces, skilled at making personalized lessons/curriculums, flexible, fun and give extra exercises/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 has great communication skills and knows just how to present the material. She has the patience and is a great motivator. Works well around my busy schedule. I am looking forward to more learning :)
Great first lesson! Looking forward to more.
She is an amazing instructor who works at your pace. Extremely knowledgeable and has an answer for every question you may have.
Patience and has a great personality, she tries to accommodate her students as much as possible.
Nina offers an affable and helpful learning experience.
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.
