Private English Tutor in Prague and Online

Experienced (and friendly!) native English teacher

Hello! I believe effective language learning can only happen when students feel relaxed, and when they are interested in the material. It's very important that students speak as much as possible during the lesson, and are not afraid to make mistakes! Making mistakes is normal when learning a language. Therefore, I try to make lessons fun and engaging. To do this, I conduct a needs analysis of each student during the first session; this allows me to discover exactly what each new student’s needs are, which areas they need to improve, and what topics they are interested in.

I have a Trinity Cert TESOL (TEFL certificate) and 13 years’ teaching experience (including 8 years in Prague). I’ve taught individuals and groups at all levels from Pre-Intermediate to Advanced/Proficiency, as well as exam preparation classes (FCE, CAE, CPE, IELTS, TOEFL). I teach at a language school as well as at various companies in Prague, in addition to teaching private students. I have a background in linguistics (mainly syntax and phonology), which helps me to explain the intricacies of English grammar.

Everyone has a different reason for wanting to learn English, and everyone has different needs when learning. Many people are afraid to speak English - they're afraid to make mistakes; often, they hated their English lessons at school! I can help you to become more fluent and more confident when giving presentations, attending meetings, writing emails or letters, or just talking to friends in English.

I'm interested in history, "nature" in general, hiking, travel, science and science fiction, magic realism, linguistics, and autistic - neurotypical communication. Obviously, though, we can also talk about other things if you're not interested in these!

Frequently Asked Questions

How easy is it to learn English in Prague?

It really depends: if you have regular lessons (with lots of conversation!), then it's not so difficult. If you also make English a part of your daily life (e.g. by watching TV shows and films, by reading books in English, by listening to podcasts, etc.), then it's definitely easier. Prague has quite a lot of people from other countries; it's sometimes possible to chat in English with them. Generally, it's up to you: your motivation levels and the energy and time you're willing to devote to learning.

What is the easiest way to learn English in Prague?

Well, I suppose I should say that the easiest way is to have lessons with me!! More usefully, though: regular speaking and listening, ideally in a conversation; watching English-language films; making English-speaking friends, if you have the opportunity.
