Personal Description:

Dear future tutee, welcome to my profile!

I am a Czech native speaker with a highly advanced level of English and I am here to offer you a thorough teaching of Czech language via the medium of Skype. Would you like to begin developing, improve, or master your knowledge of Czech? If so, your infinite wisdom has led you to the right place.

I started tutoring in January 2015 and I have taught approximately 30 students up to date. Some of those reached their desired level of understanding, and then began exercising their gained knowledge in the real world. Some had given up - sometimes due to time constraints inhibiting them from studying, occasionally because of the sheer complexity of Czech language. Others are still with me, still enthusiastic, eager to learn, and getting better as we speak.
And, hopefully, so am I.

Teaching Czech for almost 4 years has been a fantastic experience for me. I have discovered that this complex beast from grammatical - my mother tongue - can be distilled into small, logical, and digestible chunks of information, which can be subsequently learnt if one puts in the work. In those 4 years, I have read countless materials concerning etymology, morphology, and syntax. I have also covered all grammatical concepts with different students, and I have fiddled with different approaches when explaining them, which has given me great confidence in my ability to teach expertly.

Studying psychology at the Masaryk University (Brno, Czech Republic) has also proved to be invaluable, as I have learnt a great deal about our mental faculties - how our memory, motivation, or learning abilities work. How to control our impulsivity, how to avoid avoiding things (an expensive habit called procrastination), and to how to maintain focus, or cope with stress. Having lessons with me is therefore not only about improving your understanding of the language, but also improving your learning capacity, thus enhacing your knowledge once more.

If you feel that you could use a helping hand to navigate your efforts in the right direction, and make the whole process more entertaining and fruitful as well, do not hesitate to contact me, I am positive that together we will make that happen.

One more thing before you go; our first lesson will be free of charge, as you will be asked to pay for my contact details on this website. They are getting more expensive with every positive feedback, I do apologise for that :).

Speak soon,

Ondřej

Teaching Experience:

- Tutoring for the past 4 years
- Expert level of knowledge
- Former experience as a freelance journalist - highly developed grammatical and stylistic skills
- Fluent English speaker with an almost proper accent (auditory memory)
- Naturally gifted with languages
- Friendly, enthusiastic, conscientious, hard-working, and professional.

Teaching Approach:

I use combination of text books and work books (mostly different levels of Česky krok za krokem by Lída Holá, occasionally other books for more advanced students), audio recordings, translations, forming sentences, speaking, and Memrise app drilll, where I have created a few courses, which go hand in hand with my lessons and my teaching methods. This should maximise the exposure to any given topic. Dilligent students can therefore improve significantly outside our lessons as well.
Utilising all of these tools has been very succesful so far, but I am always trying to think of something new.
