Detailed Profile in English

About me

I`m 52 years old, live near Bern Switzerland, am originally from the east coast of the USA, and have lived in Europe for 18 years.

I`m married, have no children (although I had foster children in American). My husband is Swiss.

I enjoy teaching very much! It is really what I love to do!

In addition to teaching I have a big garden with vegetables, fruit trees and flowers and enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. On the weekends we often cook and have our friends over to visit.

Traveling is also one of my favorite things and I`ve done quite a bit of it in Europe and America.

I would describe myself as a creative person who is open, friendly, loves people and the English language.

Qualifications & Experience

I am CELTA certified and have 17 years of teaching experience including, but not limited to one to one, business, Cambridge exam prep (CAE,BEC Higher,BEC Vantage, BEC Preliminary, First Certificate etc.), technical English, English for IT, English for logistics, English for finance and medical English.

I am currently in charge of an English language program in a local steel mill, have many private students and also teach online for a Swiss company.

I am a native speaker, originally from the east coast of the USA and have a business background in state budget administration and supporting people with developmental disabilities, including children. I also worked as a cook in restaurants and a landscaper with a focus on dry built stone walls.

I have also been a member of the English Teacher`s Association of Switzerland for 15 years.

Additionally, I have experience and training in public speaking.

Teaching Approach

I love teaching!

My approach is a combination of many techniques I have picked up with my years of experience and education.

I believe that people have different learning styles and I adjust my lessons to fit what the students need.

While being pragmatic in my approach my lessons are not boring. I often use humor, pictures, music, video and movements to reinforce the lesson material and make it fun and easy to learn.

I draw on techniques from a wide range of books, literature, contact with other teachers and regular teacher training along with input from my students.

It is very important to me to be not just skilled at teaching but professional too. I take my student`s goals very seriously and design their learning experience around their needs.

Nancy is an excellent tutor who adjusts her style to her student (in our case a 9-year old) throughout the lesson, using an age-adequate approach. She is versatile and creative and manages to keep the attention on what is essential to the lesson, combining verbal exercise with repetition and adequate written follow-up. We are very pleased with the progress ! Thank you Nancy.

Nancy is a good teacher and a very nice person. We've had skype lessons for several months, covering a variety of subjects. I'm really happy about the improvements I made. Thank you, Nancy!
