Detailed Profile in English

About me

I grew up in a multilingual community where I was exposed to many languages since my early childhood. These languages were Hungarian, Slovak, English, Czech, and German.

I pursued my studies in three different languages which have helped me to get a scholarship to study in Munich, Germany at the Ludwig Maximilians University and at the University of Pécs in Hungary.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Pécs in the Doctoral Programme in English Applied Linguistics and TEFL/TESOL. Besides teaching and studying, I'm already working on my dissertation and several publications.

Learning a language plays an important role in pursuing studies and finding a job. Speaking languages broadens the mind, helps to understand different communities, and develops cognitive skills.

Teaching has always been my passion. I adore getting to know people from other parts of the world and talk to them about their goals, culture, and whatever topic may arise.

Teaching Approach

Finding a good teacher is as important as tailoring the teaching materials and approach to your students' needs.

To me, it is very important to ask what is the student's aim, what goals s/he would like reach during our classes and what are his/her interests. Classes are great but you will be expected to do your homework and practice at home as well. This is a key in language learning.

I am sure we will have the most enjoyable classes with tons of fun. I am here to help you whenever you need it.

Thank you for your patience with my learning, especially when I haven't studied for a week. I really feel that you are building my skills from the ground up, which ultimately is going to make me a proficient speaker of Hungarian.
