Detailed Profile in English

About me

My name is Joanna. I'm British, and I have just returned after living in the Czech Republic for the last eight years. I passed my TEFL qualification in Prague and I taught English face to face in the east of the country for 6 years.

In 2016 I decided to teach online. Since then I have lived in the Czech Republic, Malta, the UK and Sicily. It has been a great adventure exploring countries and teaching at the same time.

I have been learning Czech for years and so I totally understand the problems you have learning an extra language. I understand the need for structure in a lesson, but I also understand the need to practice what you have just learnt. I was amazed at how fast my language improved when I practised regularly with a native speaker.

I worked in retail for many years, then I moved to the electronics manufacturing industry. While working for a company in the UK I got the chance to move to the Czech Republic. I never looked back!

Qualifications & Experience

I have years of retail experience. Dealing with money and customer orders. I also organised staff rotas.

I have over 10 years experience working in a production environment. I started as a semi skilled assembler and moved up through stock control, supervising, into the computer systems. I became well versed in SQL and maintained the customer CRM.

I passed my 120 hour TEFL course in Prague in 2011 and have been teaching full time ever since

Teaching Approach

I am here to help improve your confidence when talking to and understanding native English speakers. On all levels, from beginner to advanced.

I have taught one to one lessons and groups of students from many backgrounds and of all ages. I can help you prepare for your Preliminary, First and Advanced Cambridge exams.

We can concentrate on Business English. I can advise you on creating a CV and handling difficult job interviews and how to deal with business correspondence.

We can concentrate on everyday English. For example, how to rent a flat. How to complain at a hotel when your room is not suitable, and how to deal with medical problems or getting directions when lost in a new city.

Ms.Joanna Appleby is the best teacher that I have ever had, she is so patient and positive, I feel really confident and positive after the lessons. Feeling so lucky to have a teacher who teaches me much more than just vocabulary and grammar.
