Hi, I'm Nicole Levesque. As a specialist English pronunciation teacher, I work with professionals from around the world who want to communicate more clearly. I have expertise in clients from Brazil, China, Korea, India and Spanish speakers, but I can also work efficiently with all nationalities.
I have always had a passion for languages and am particularly interested in understanding how adults learn best. I also believe that warmth and patience will always yield the best results.
I have a master's degree in speech and language pathology, I am a qualified English (esl) teacher, and I am also a certified Compton PESL (pronouncing English as a second language) trainer.
Originally from Canada, I have also lived in the U.S.A., in the U.K. and (for the past 20 years) in Australia.
