English and Test Prep Tutoring (Additional Tutoring in Math or Science Available Upon Request)

I am an experienced, native-speaking English teacher from the USA. I have taught both in my home country and in many countries abroad, instructing native speakers as well as second language learners. I have a teaching certification as well as experience teaching both Math and Science with English as the instructional language.
Through my experience I have gained particular expertise with test preparation like the GRE, CAE, GMAT, CPE, TOEFL, and TOEIC, just to name a few. I recently had a student score 8 on IELTS and another score 1480 on the SAT. I have had students get accepted into prestigious institutions like Rotterdam School of Management, Purdue University, and Brooklyn School of Science and Technology.
Though I care a lot about the success of my students, I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

Extra information

We can design the course based around your needs. If you want to work from a textbook, use online resources, or simply have a less structured conversational class, we can be flexible. Whatever you want to study, we can make it work!

About Me

I am an American educator who has been teaching 5+ years. Although I am primarily an English teacher, I have actually taught a wide range of subjects, from Theatre to Math to Science to Music. I have taught in New York, California, DC, Taipei, Prague, and online.

When I'm not teaching I really enjoy the outdoors and the arts. I'm an avid hiker, backpacker, camper, and rock climber. One of my previous jobs was actually as an outdoors guide! I also love playing music and can play 5 instruments (though none too well). I enjoy theatre and performance too, having been an actor in the US.

I care a lot about the success of my students but I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

Paul
Native English & French Speaker - Be Fluent Now! *Also Available Online*
Hello and welcome! I’m Paul and here’s a question for you: Do you need English or French in your life? Well, you’re in the right place! Your goal can be to: • Go to university • Pass an exam • Find a job • Improve a skill • Maintain your language level With so many options, it is important to learn what is relevant for you. That is why I teach through Personal Learning, a student centered method of instruction. This means YOU get to choose the direction and curriculum of the course. I teach in person throughout Prague and online. Through my experiences, I became passionate about teaching. • As a teen, I was tutoring English, French and Mathematics to my family members. • In 2017, I volunteered to teach over 100 hours of marine biology to kids and teenagers in the Philippines. • From 2017 to 2019 I worked as a mining engineer and intern trainer. • Now, I completed my TEFL certification with excellent feedback from my mentors and a job offer. • I currently work with a reputable language school and give private tuition. With this experience, I have the confidence to offer you valuable and engaging lessons. I'm looking forward to hear from you. Best regards, Paul.

Luka
Teaching all school levels of Math, Biology and English
I'm a Math&bBology&English tutor for school students of all ages. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I personally believe that the best way to teach someone is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. My goal is to create a friendly and comfortable environment where you feel free to be yourself. I can definitely say that teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this with pleasure, once this wise man told me "we never stop learning, even when we get older" and I believe him. I might be the teacher in this situation but u have to always be open to new experiences. So if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to give my best to you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then we will find a way to bring that spark back to you. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will try my best to reply to you asap. Remember, its all about the journey not the destination.

Martin Menendez
ENGLISH AND SPANISH LESSONS: from beginner to proficiency level. Training for official exams, conversation tutor, practice exercises...
Hi! I am Martin Menendez, a bachelor student who is looking to teach either Spanish (my native language) or English (I'm bilingual: certified C2 English level) here in Prague, where I will be spending my year. I have experience teaching both languages, which I have been teaching for the last two years, and I offer lessons for any level! As a method, I dedicate the first lesson to more or less see the level at which the student is and therefore start developing a plan for future classes, what the student wants and needs and what areas we will spend more time focusing on. I do assign homework each week :) However, most important is having a friendly, close and personal environment where you see me as an equal and where you can ask anything you want. I also want to learn from you and this city too! I think communication is key and that is why I am available to message anytime any day. Flexibility is one of my assets since I am available from Wednesday to Sunday. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions if you are interested!

Carina
Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
I have worked fulltime, for the past 12 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.
