About Me

Hi, I'm Nick Vance.
Nice to meet you!

Over the last few years, I've helped hundreds of people from around the world speak English more fluently with one-on-one lessons via Skype. It has been a real passion of mine, and I enjoyed learning about my students' interests and cultures while I was sharing my knowledge of English with them.

At the moment, I am not teaching English online anymore, but I've left up this website as a resource for anyone looking to improve their English. If you have are looking for an English teacher that teaches in the same style that I do, I recommend you contact my roommate Maddy. You can reach her via email at MadelynLines11@gmail.com

My teaching philosophy

The most important things when learning English (or anything) are having fun and feeling comfortable. My lessons are a safe environment where you can take chances and focus on improving. That's a lot better than worrying about making mistakes.

It's never too late to learn a new language or improve an existing one. At the age of 26 I couldn’t say more than a few sentences in German, and now speak the language fluently. And as a teacher, I’ve seen countless adult students make the same leap. Join them!

I like to focus on what's really important - the grammar and vocabulary that you will actually use. You don't need to learn every tense and conjugation, just the most common ones. It's all about being able to communicate what you want to communicate.​
