Hi, I'm Nick. I was born in California, near San Francisco. I lived there for most of my life, but I spent two years in Warsaw as a child. I lived in Silicon Valley and worked at Stanford University for more than a decade. I have been living in Warsaw since 2014 while pursuing a PhD in history. Też mówię po polsku.
I can help you improve your English through conversations, exercises, or any combination of activities to maximize your potential and confidence. My students have included: programmers, engineers, recruiters, bankers, architects, marketers, and public relations professionals and children too. I also translate and proofread. If you have questions, write to me.
My teaching schedule is almost full, so my preference is to meet for lessons at my home (near Metro Centrum). Send me a message and lets get started!
