Hello! My name is Monica, but my friends call me Nic. I teach English, writing, and conversation courses, along with specialty, custom classes with Blue Sky Education. I also offer tutoring sessions for those who are looking for a little extra guidance in a variety of subjects.
I love teaching and getting to know students from all over the globe! I think learning a language is one of the most exciting things you can do, as it opens up a whole new world to discover! Learning in general is a lifetime activity. I strive to always be a student myself, so I can continue my own growth, as well as empathize with my students. I aim to help students reach a comfortable balance in work ethic, effort, progress, mental health, stress relief, and a joy of learning.
Get to know me: I live in Cadillac, Michigan with my 3-year-old daughter. I have three cats. I have lived in Croatia, Greece, and South Korea. I love to travel, write, run, and go on fun adventures with family and friends. I am excited to meet you in the classroom! Book your classes now, or ask me for a discount on your trial class!
