About me

Hi,

I am an experienced TEFL certified ESL teacher. I started my teaching career after graduating from university. I moved to Prague and taught English for three years. I had a diverse range of students; Most of my students were one-to-one ESL lessons in international and local companies in Prague. I also taught FCE and CAE certification group classes and I taught in a public primary preschool and elementary school in Prague.

I enjoy teaching and being able to bring effective language instruction to my students. I've learned how to efficiently plan and develop lessons based on a personal approach to teaching. I call it a road map, and it's a personalized set of goals and ESL objectives that I work hard to help you accomplish. For each student, I believe in developing a personalized lesson plans based on level of English, personality, and personal objectives.

I'm happy to help you study and become fluent in English.

Thanks for your consideration!

Teaching Approach

I believe in a personalized approach to ESL learning. No student necessarily has the same motivations, learning style, and goals as other students. With new students, I always begin my lessons with a conversation about learning objectives and what the student hopes to accomplish in half a year into the future, and what the student hopes to accomplish in a year. From there I develop a plan for each lesson and use a combination of conversation activities as well as speaking, worksheet, and grammar writing activities.

I like to be efficient, and accomplish as much as possible in one lesson. I then leave it up to the student to do a little practice and homework outside of class to prepare for the next lesson. Within the typical length of a semester, or about five months, I guarantee you will see big improvement with your English speaking ability.

I'd be happy to set up lessons with you to help you reach your learning goals.

Thanks!

Josh
