I work with foreign-born professionals to help them overcome English language challenges, speak clear, understandable English and reach their full potential in an American workplace. I can help you improve your pronunciation, develop a more American accent, fine-tune your grammar, improve word choice, take into account cultural considerations and more.

Tell me what you need, and I'll create it for you. Here are some examples of specific things we can work on too: phone skills, giving presentations, interview prep, interacting with patients, selling to potential clients. And there is so much more.

When you work with me, I create a program specifically for your needs, so you can reach your personal and professional goals. Since your lessons are designed just for you, the time you spend practicing is efficient and you make progress toward your goals quickly.

Before I took my classes with Nicole, I was unable to pronounce certain words because of my accent. This affected my progress at work. After 12 classes and a lot of practice, I was much more confidant with my speech and pronunciation. Nicole was very professional and knew exactly how to help me improve. She was very flexible when it came to scheduling our online classes. I would defiantly recommend Nicole, she is a great person and an even better teacher.
Pilar
I have lived in the USA for about 20 years and couldn't recognize the pronunciation mistakes I made on my conversations, all I knew was that conference calls at work were moments of suffering and anxiety for me.
Nicole helped me to understand and correct my mispronunciation. She is an amazing and dedicated teacher with an incredible amount of patience.
After the completion of our classes I received a promotion at work and I attribute it in part to the improvements I made on my speech.
Thanks to Nicole I'm not uneasy any more about conference calls :-)
I highly recommend her!
Julie
The reason I looked for accent reduction training was I wanted to improve on my English and people understand my accent better. Our trainings were really helpful. When I started the training, I thought I just needed accent lesson, but during the process, I realized I needed the help for grammar, writing, vocabulary etc. I felt my lesson was comprehensive English not just limited accent lesson. I liked you to record my accent and listened together. I didn't like to hear my voice and accent , but it was great reality check. I also liked the motivation and encouragement from you. Your honesty was really helpful too. The favorite part was having good conversation with you. I recommend Nicole because she can detect our problem and really familiar with the problem of Asian accent. She prepares the lesson well and customize our needs. She will set the goal for you, so it is easy to follow. If you are not sure, I want you to take a test and go over with her. It would be the eye opening.

I took 8 years of Spanish classes and lived in Ecuador where I used Spanish on a daily basis.

My teaching philosophy is to help students engage in learning. I find that a personal connection to new information makes it more engaging and meaningful, and students remember it better too. It's also more fun.

That being said, if learning is more readily achieved for your student through other methods, we will do whatever works best. I cater to results, because my ultimate goal is the student's success.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

1- Are you interested in teaching beginners?

=> Of course! Actually, a lot of my students are beginners. It's fantastic to follow their progress and it's interesting to adapt the class a bit differently for each of them according to their preferences and abilities.

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons
=> For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or 60 min (100% conversation).
=> For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and how are their focus capabilities.

3- Is scheduling flexible? ...

The first lesson with Meriem was great. I’ve been teaching myself French, and I have some pretty big gaps in basic knowledge. She did a great job helping me figure out what I need to work on. I look forward to more lessons.
Justin
I spent a couple of months having lessons with Meriem and I definitely enjoyed my time. I had some previous knowledge of French words and phrases from various online tools but I lacked the insight that an actual instructor could bring. It was extremely beneficial to talk to someone who could correct me and help me learn. I hope that I can start my lessons again soon.
Rocio S.
I loved my first lesson. Meriem encouraged me to use my French and I felt little by little more confident in the conversation. Looking forward to our next lesson.

Lessons are fun and exciting. The idea is to make students feel as comfortable as possible and then get them to express themselves in the most fulfilling way. The approach taken by the teacher is to allow the student to be open with what they're thinking and then making corrections where necessary.

"I have taken accent reduction with a few teachers and Gabriel is by far the best accent reduction teacher I have had. His technique is very practical and based on principles of how singing is taught. It has been very effective for me. It also helps that he is a very friendly and nice person in addition to being an inspiring actor, singer and performer."

"At age 56, it is getting harder for me to remember a few things. Especially language. Even though I speak several languages(English, Spanish, Chinese), I find that French is the hardest one. I have been going to the classes offer by UNLV for several years, and I have been having the same teacher, Pascal. If you are asking me that if she is a great teacher? I think so. Otherwise, why am I still going, right?
I enjoy her class very much. She is fun to be around."
