I am a professional actor based in the United States. I have acted in film, television shows as well as stage (musicals and plays) over my career. I am very passionate about talking to people and helping them develop confidence in speaking in English.
Me as a Teacher
I am a very topical person when it comes to teaching. I like to teach with certain themes in mind (i.e. food, weather, sports, etc.) in order to compartmentalize the lesson and make it easier for the student to digest the lesson. I also like giving time for the student to describe his/her day to me in English in order for me to correctly diagnose their level of proficiency and for them to practice speaking in English. I also love giving vocabulary words for each lesson, as well as to review those for the next lesson. If the student comes in late in class within 30 minutes of the time, we are still ending class at the time specified in the Lesson Detail. You're responsible to be on time.
My lessons & teaching style
I am very structured when it comes to performing lessons in order for the student to get his/her money's worth, but I also know how to tweak the lesson or move it around if the student has a difficult time learning something.

Nick uses his acting skills to provide a very professional teaching experience especially when it comes to improving your pronunciation. I highly recommend Nick

I have thoroughly enjoyed speaking with Nick for an uncountable number of reasons, which I barely even could list; some of which are his spotless English, utterly eloquent with a perfect enunciation, politeness, patience, cheerfullness, ability to converse on wide range of topics such as politics, economics, finances, history, etc. At the top of that, it was really cool to learn about peculiarities of his work as an actor. To sum up, Nick is an outstanding teacher and simply a beautiful person. Highly recommended!
