Hi, I'm Nick. I was born in California, near San Francisco. I lived there for most of my life, but I spent nearly two years in Warsaw as a child. I lived in Siicon Valley for years and worked at Stanford University for more than a decade. I have been living in Warsaw since March 2014 while pursuing a PhD in history. Też mówię po polsku.
I can help you improve your English through conversations, grammar and vocabulary exercises, reviewing your resume and or any combination of activities to maximize your potential. My students have included: programmers, engineers, recruiters, bankers, architects, marketers, and public relations professionals. I also translate Polish to English and proofread. If you have questions, feel free to write to me. I offer discounts for blocks of lessons booked in advance.
