About Me

I am a 28-year-old American man living in Prague, Czech Republic. I have been teaching for 5+ years at language schools and privately. I am a very personable, patient, and enthusiastic teacher.

Teacher Experience

I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a B.A. in International Relations and Communication. During my studies, I attended Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary, for an academic year. I was introduced to teaching while working as an intern at the U.S. State Department's Public Diplomacy Centre. I travelled around the country leading conversational English clubs and fell in love with teaching.

I made my teaching career official by receiving my TELF and Young Learners TEFL in January 2017 at the Language House Prague. I have been teaching all demographics, backgrounds, and ages since then.

I have successfully prepared three students for new jobs via interview practice and CV consultation and three students for international university admissions. I'm experienced in English language consulting for students in the fields: entertainment, music, acting, IT, financial, development, L&D, HR, education, and psychology.

Lesson Style

I strive to create an enjoyable yet practical classroom environment that helps motivate my students to keep up with their language acquisition. I have a very tailored approach to lessons because language learning isn't one-size-fits-all. I believe we all have different types of intelligence (logical-mathematical, linguistic, spatial, musical, bodily-kinesthetic, intrapersonal, interpersonal, and naturalistic intelligence). They can be used to help us learn more effectively. I also purposely use your interests, hobbies, passions and work to make the English language yours. I use a variety of mediums to support your personal needs. I primarily work with adults but am happy to teach children as well! Please reach out to me if you're looking for engaging, helpful, and even entertaining lessons. Looking forward to meeting you!
