Über Mich

I am a TEFL-certified, native English language instructor from the US. I have taught privately, at the university level, at several prominent companies as well as young learners over the last 15 years. I have a keen ability and feeling to help people improve their English through engaging conversation. My method involves interactive conversation focusing on clarity, correct phrasing, and pronunciation in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Topics can vary depending on the client’s interest and request.

Education & Background
I have a bachelors degree in Music Composition from the University of North Texas (US). I taught music extensively in the States as well as in France and Belgium. After relocating to the Czech Republic in 2003, I began teaching English as a second language.

Apart from teaching, I work as a language consultant designing, improving, editing and correcting texts for various projects including presentations, speeches, journals, academic papers and anything that needs a polished look for publication in print or on the web. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in International Development at Palacky University in Olomouc (CZ)
