About Me

Dobrý den Vám všem!

Do you need help with your English? Are you one of those people who have been studying on and off for years, with little result? Conversing is difficult, and understanding is even harder? Are you a beginner trying to decide what the best teaching method is, an advanced student in need of an English conversation, or do you need help with exam preparation? If any of those statements are true, it´ll be my pleasure to guide you through the world of English! I’m a TEFL-certified teacher, ready to create lessons to fit your specific needs. I have two nationalities: Czech and American. I have lived half of my life in the Czech Republic and the other half in the USA, which many Czech students appreciate. Having an option of studying with a bilingual teacher, who can explain the learning material in your native tongue and speaks English almost as well as a native speaker - is considered an advantage. I have always found working with people rewarding, so seeing my students getting more confident, using the English language more efficiently, and communicating with greater ease is an experience I will always cherish. If you are interested in my lessons or like to get more information, please send me a message.

Teacher Experience

I have been teaching individual lessons in the Czech Republic for five years. I have also taught for several companies such as MATAMI S.R.O., EFIN SPOL. S. R.O., Global Blue Czech Republic, S.R.O., NEWPS.CZ S.R.O., and others.

Lesson Style

My experience acquired from six years of teaching individual lessons is this: most of you - especially at the lower and upper-intermediate levels - often have a sizeable vocabulary. You have studied lots of grammar, yet so far have failed to use it correctly in conversation. Many of you still concentrate on the meaning of individual words, which doesn't help in understanding the context of the language that is full of phrases, phrasal verbs, and idioms. The ESA method is a clever and fun way to address this problem. It emphasizes the ability to communicate the meaning of the message, instead of focusing only on grammatical perfection, even though grammar is always there to explain the basic structures and rules for making words and sentences. ESA stands for Engage - Study - Activate. The Engage phase is there to engage students’ emotions. That is being accomplished by using stories, pictures, or audio recordings, making it easier to remember. The Study phase activities focus on the information and construction of the language. In the Activate phase, exercises and activities are used to get students to utilize the language as communicatively as possible.
