Hello, my name is Nicola Gray and I'm 45 years old and currently living in Portugal. I am a native English speaker and teach English. I have been an online English teacher with Verbalplanet.com since October 2019. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hi, I am a qualified TEFL teacher with over 15 years' experience teaching face to face and online. I am originally from Australia, although I don't have a very strong Australian accent anymore! :)

I have taught English in Turkey, Costa Rica and China, and for years in Australia to international students from all over the world (South America, Europe and Asia). I have also been a manager of English schools in Australia.

My specialties are in pronunciation correction and teaching grammar.

I am also an ex-IELTS examiner and can prepare you for the IELTS exam in Speaking and Writing.

If you like, I can also help you with academic or creative writing.

Qualifications & Experience

Teaching Approach

My approach is based on having fun while learning. I take teaching seriously, but I think we can have also some laughs along the way.

I am very patient, and I understand how to teach students from all different levels in a way that is easy to understand. I have experience of teaching people with zero English to very advanced students.

I know how to build your confidence quickly by using positive feedback and praise, but I will also correct you when it is required.

I know what it is like to learn a new language, and I know how many times you need to repeat something for it to stay in your memory!

I am offering a low rate for my level of experience because I am new on this site, so I hope you get in touch and try my services! I look forward to meeting you if you are ready to learn. :)
