Personal Description:

Dobrý den, I am a native Czech speaker living in Nottingham, UK. I grew up in a little village in the Czech Republic and then, after a 2-year stay in London, I returned to Prague where I taught English as a foreign language. That's when I realised that teaching languages is the best job ever. I loved meeting new people, sharing my knowledge of the language that I loved so much.
But somehow I ended up back in UK, this time in Nottinghamshire! I worked as an English/Czech interpreter for a decade but now I would like to focus on teaching language that I know the best because it's my mother tongue.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching English as a foreign language for individuals and companies in Prague, Czech Republic
In-person Czech lessons, usually 1-on-1, since 2015.
Skype Czech lessons, since 2017.

Teaching Approach:

My typical lesson consists of grammar, conversation and games, but I can be very flexible, depending on your preferences.
The first lessons is free to compensate for your initial cost (you have to pay a one-off fee to Firsttutors.com in order to obtain my contact details.) During my lessons I like to go straight to the point so we will be working on the pronunciation within the first few minutes of the first lesson!
My philosophy is that learning a foreign language should be fun and part of all learning is making mistakes.
I have many hobbies and interests, such as allotment gardening, willow-weaving, wildlife conservation, bird-watching, cycling, horse riding, guitar playing; I sing in a choir and I am a member of Nottingham Writers Club. Why do I mention my interests? Because interests make nice topic for conversation for our lessons, and
my lessons are as as conversation-based as possible. (That may not be everybody's cup of tea so I'm pretty flexible there!)
What about learning materials? I can provide handouts (grammar and exercises) or we can follow a textbook. Combination of both could be the best!
Thank you for your time spent reading my profile and I am hoping to see you during our lessons.
