About Me

I am originally from Denver, Colorado USA but have lived in Portland, Oregon, USA for the past 25 years. I love Portland and can't wait to tell you all about it.

I was lucky enough to come to the Czech Republic in early October and have quickly fallen in love with it here. I love my Czech students so far and can't wait to meet more people.

Teacher Experience

I have been teaching online for the past two years (adults, teenagers and older children) and started teaching professional adults through a school in Prague starting in October 2021.

I got my TEFL certification in 2019 while living in Portland, Oregon USA with 200 hours of course work and 20 hours of practical work.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Russian studies and a Master Degree in Public Administration.

I have over 20 years of experience in the non-profit field in management and operations. I have worked in a variety of organizations but mostly in those that are focused on intercultural education.

My passion is language and culture as I have been learning Russian for the past 30 years. I lived in Russia in the early 90s for three years and I taught English along with other interesting jobs. I also taught Russian 20 years ago in a local community college in the US.

Lesson Style

My lessons are for you and your needs. I have created some very fun and interesting lessons that can help improve your reading, listening and speaking skills and most importantly your fluency. I love to talk about culture, language and travel but also love to learn about you. I can also work with you on academics such as editing and writing papers. I have helped a couple of my students with the TOEFL test and they have gone on to study in master's programs in the US. Lastly, if you need help with writing emails, communicating with co-workers in English, preparing for an interview or anything connected to English and your job, I can do that too! Most importantly I know that it takes a few lessons for us to get to know each other and to figure out what works. I want to know what you are interested in and what works for you. So let's meet and learn English!
