Hello. My name is Nicolas De Guzman and is simply called Nicky. I have been teaching offline and online English for about 16 years now. Although I am a Business Graduate, I am a teacher by heart. I hail from a family of teachers. My mom used to run a school in our city. I started off as an English tutor and was promoted to be the Academic Director of a language institution.
I am a very friendly person because I like meeting new people. I maybe strict in class due to being objective driven, but I still maintain a conducive learning atmosphere. I am easy to get along with because I am straight forward and honest.
For past time, I am a theater actor. I am particularly interested in musical theater. Yes. That means I sing, act, and dance. I also like playing volleyball, karate, and swimming. Movies, TV shows, and books are portals for knowledge for me.
I believe in integrating all areas of the English language during my lessons. Even with a lesson focal point, I see to it that I touch grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading and comprehension, and speaking and listening in my lessons to maximize learning.
I am looking forward to seeing you in my classes. Thank you for taking time to read. See you real soon. High five!
