Nick Kent

My name is Nicholas (Nick) Kent, and I have been working as a Communication English Teacher at Auckland English Academy for seven years with further experience teaching Communication and Business English in classroom and office settings in Hong Kong and China. In addition to my Trinity CertTESOL teaching qualification, I hold a Master of Arts in Politics and International Relations with Honours from the University of Auckland, and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies from Middlebury College in the United States. During my time at Auckland English Academy, I have cultivated an array of successful teaching, communication and presentation skills which help me deliver dense and rigorous lessons in a Socratic style with a heavy technical focus within curriculum guidelines. I grew up in Hong Kong, was educated at the secondary and tertiary levels in the United States, and my interests include Chinese, reading, writing, history, geopolitics and futurism – I am also a huge Michael Jackson and Star Trek fan!
