Elin from Sweden: The lessons with Nicole have been great. She is inspiring, is kind, fun and a great teacher. It has been perfect to have private lessons with her. She has helped me understand the English language more and has always have good patience, which is great. She is a good explainer and I have learned lots. Will recommend her to others.
Olivia from Italy: When I met Nicole I immediately had a good feeling and I thought “I can learn a lot from her”. After my first class I realised I have done the best choice. She is friendly but really professional. It doesn’t matter how difficult it is for you learning a new language, she will make sure you feel comfortable and she will find the method to make you learn in the easiest way, from the first moment. I can assure you that you will leave your classes realising that you are truly improving your English. For me she is absolutely effective.
Moira from Sri Lanka: I have been having lessons with Nicole since Feb 2010 and wish to emphasise her dedication and commitment to her students and the uniqueness of her teaching style by which she fulfils the language skills and competencies required by each individual. Nicole makes a great effort in understanding the level of study needed by each student and designs a specialised course to meet the requirement criteria which is exemplary. She makes her students feel comfortable in discussing their weaknesses and their need for further developing English Language Skills. I consider myself privileged to have engaged in a Business Presentation course with Nicole and am very confident that her honest and professional guidance will help me to develop my skills and confidence in public speaking.
Tereza from Czech Republic: Nicole is first of all professional and experienced teacher, but also a friendly and warm person, who welcomes everyone with a "big smile", cares about lives of her students, and in her busy lessons always find a space for an advice and support. Classes with Nicole helped me to not only pass my CAE exam, but also were an interesting personal experience.
Katrin from Germany: Nicole is a great teacher – passionate, well structured and highly professional. She is extremely helpful and very encouraging and I much enjoy her classes. Her private English lessons helped me to improve quickly as well as to feel much more confident with my English. I have been very impressed with Nicole's depth of understanding of linguistics and the way that she explains connections and historical and cultural facts of the country and the language. With Nicole it is more than just learning English for me, it is like meeting with a friend whilst improving and learning.
Alvin from Indonesia: I would indeed recommend Nicole as an English tutor. Her unique teaching methodology has enabled me to be a confident presenter and writer. Not only have I excel more in my study, but also I feel much more comfortable in social events. She helped me to pinpoint areas where I needed the most improvement from the very first day, and provided me with all of the necessary support to systematically overcome all of my English deficiency. It was a truly personalised learning experience.
Jiri from Czech Republic: Nicole is a very dedicated teacher whose abilities broadly exceed your language issues. She helped me not only with my speaking skills which was the original reason why I attended her classes but also as my situation had changed she flexibly employed different approaches which you could hardly expect in a standard language school. She helped me with the fight against Australian red tape and with honing my writing skills. She also inspired me to create my own website and helped me to look at it from an Australian point of view. A resume improving is probably one of her speciality as she did it very quickly and professionally. She also revealed me a sweet secret of learning new vocabulary and gave me some hints for learning idiomatic and colloquial English. To sum up, whatever your needs in Englich are, Nicole can help you. It is crystal clear that for her teaching is not just occupation but lifelong passion.
Juergen from Germany: Working with Nicole was not only very effective but also fun. She is highly professional and extremely talented in the field of communications. Thanks to her help I successfully passed the IELTS test with band 8 without having known how to write an essay in English before. She was very flexible and gave me "spot-on" feedback, exactly what I needed. Moreover, she improved my CV significantly, even though many professionals had reviewed it before. Finally, she helped me with my application at the United Nations and now I am undertaking a internship in New York! I value her as an outstanding teacher of written and spoken English
Daniela from Italy: I have known Nicole for almost two year and I really have been happy to have had the possibility to be her student. She helped me a lot to improve my English and to prepare for both the First Certificate and the Cambridge Advances English exams. In the past I had had different English teachers and I can sincerly say that none of them were as outstanding a teacher as Nicole is. Infact I firmly believe that her huge experience in teaching has made her reallly professional and capable of answering every kind of questions relating to learning a language. Not only she is really impressivily oraganised, but in a really short time she can also easily understand your weaknesses and consenquently help you to overcome them. She is also very funny and you will, for sure, end the lesson with a laugh! Her positiviness make you feel more encouraged to continue to learn and make you feel more confident expecially when you have an exam! Nicole is also very fair with the prices, and even though she is really well known for her ability and professioncy in teaching, she doesn't take advantages of her position but, on the contrary, she has really affordable prices. She is also really generous as, even though you call her at the last minute for help, despite her long busy time schedule, she will do her best to find time for you. To whom is willing to learn a language, I strongly recommend Nicole without any shadow of doubt. Lessons with her are incomparably much better than having lessons in a numerous class and you will be amazed how in a short time your English will improve. Thanks for everything Nicole!
Mohamed from Saudi Arabia: Hi this is Mohamed. I would like to tell you that I had IELTS exam five times before I knew Nicole. Everytime my score was 5.5 in writing, I joined two IELTS courses in universities and three private courses with teachers, but honstly Nicole was the best english teacher i have seen, she has something amazing, she really so experienced to improve your english skills. When I joined her office, I was testing her teaching method, I found her unbelievable. Trust me give her your trust and join Sydney English Teacher.
Toni from Indonesia: I had my English class with Nicole for five weeks and my English writing skill has improved a lot since then. My Boss is very happy with the results of the English training with Nicole. I would recommend Nicole to anyone who is looking for a professional English teacher who can improve the language skills in such short amount of time. Studying English with Nicole was so much fun since she always gave me encouragement to improve my language skills by giving me a lot of assignments and also feedback to my assignments. Thank you Nicole for your help improving my English writing skills :)!
Cecilia from China: My communication skills have been enhanced after I finished the three-month private course with Nicole. Nicole is the smartest, most patient and friendly English Tutor I have seen. She knows what I need, and teachs me in a very smart way. I not only learned the communication skills, but also gained more confidence in speaking English. I would like to have more lessons with her if I had more time. Thank you, Nicole.
Krzysztof from Poland: I was attending Nicole’s classes for more than two years.The lessons were one on one and Nicole did a great job tailoring our weekly meetings to my needs. She helped me to be a confident user of English in both speaking and writing. Not only have I enjoyed the lessons per se but also a friendly atmosphere and conversations. Nicole has an in-depth knowledge of English, lots of patience and when she teaches one really could see sparkles of joy in her eyes.
Edwin from Indonesia: Nicole lesson was tailored to suits my need in the workplace, she had equipped me with all the resources and tips which improve my English, writing skills over the time. Moreover, she is of the best teacher I ever had. I would highly recommend Nicole to improve your English.
Adela from Macedonia: I have done a few English courses in the past and this one was definitely by far the most beneficial. I was doubtful at thestart after other disappointing experiences at other various English courses, but just after the first lesson with Nicole I knew that I will benefit from her type of structure of the lessons and her dedication to the students. The lessons were fun, creative and the literature given to take home was very useful and something that you can not find anywhere. My main focus was on my writing skills and just after a few lessons people at work started noticing a difference. I have improved my writing skills, formal and informal and I have a much better understanding of the grammar. I would highly recommend Nicole as a private teacher. I have attended 20 hours (2 people small Group course) and I am planing again to get a few more lessons to brush up on my skills and improve my vocabulary. See you soon Nicole. :-)
Camila from Brazil: I really recommend Nicole as preparatory for the IELTS exam. I tryed different schools and methods, but definately she is the best one. Very knowlegable, she has a fun and dynamic learning system. She not only will prepare you well for the actual exam, she will also boost your English overall!! It’s great, 100% there's no fail, especially for the fact that it is 1:1 lectures, which means she will be 100% focused on you! The best! A must!!! Big thank you Nicole for all your help and commitment!!!!! :)
