Who am I?
Hi! My name's Anya and I'm from Newcastle, England. I moved to Brno to study teaching and be closer to my family who moved here a few years ago; I love it here!

Eva - USA

Who am I?
I'm Eva - an American who grew up in Connecticut, moved to Boston for university, and then moved to a few other places much further away, mainly around Eastern Europe. Now I've come to Brno while I study for my Master's degree in political science, and I absolutely love it here. I've taught English in the US, Russia, Morocco, and Poland, and it's always fulfilling for me to get to know my students and learn together as friends.

What do you love?
Languages, geography, knitting, cats, and the ocean, to name a few.

You life slogan or credo?
"Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don't." -Bill Nye the Science Guy

Why me?
I think that learning a language is brave and exciting, and I love having the chance to help people achieve that. I've personally taken courses in German, Russian, Hungarian, and Lithuanian, and now I'm trying to learn Czech, so I understand how difficult it can be to make the jump from a textbook to a conversation. In this way, a good class should involve much more than memorization and repetition. I can't wait to hear your stories, share thoughts and experiences, and laugh throughout.

What do you love?
Hmm this list could go forever! I love spending time with family and friends, the beach, cooking, reading, watching, listening, ice-cream (!!!), learning, discovering, celebrating, travelling, and everyday adventures.

I love the physical and mental reward of being a yoga practitioner and cherish the studio I attend here in the city, it is a lovely little community.

Ray - USA

Who am I?
I am an American who has been living in Europe for a total of 16 years, including four years in Moravia from 1991-1995. My Czech is good, but my skills have definitely fossilized and I make the same mistakes over and over. I have worked as a journalist and English teacher, and for the last 20 years I have worked in corporate communications. I have written many speeches in my career for business people, but now I am active in Toastmasters so that I can learn how to be a better public speaker.

What do you love?
I love time with friends, which is unfortunately harder to come by in these busy times. Like James Baldwin said, I love debating people with whom I do not disagree too much.

You life slogan or credo?
"We all need to learn how to shut up and listen."

Why me?
I am an experienced teacher and writer. I enjoy coaching people in communicating clearly, whether it's language knowledge or presentation skills. I have a thorough understanding of English grammar. Unfortunately, traditional teaching methods have unfortunately convinced people that grammar is boring and unhelpful, but if it's done right, it can help people communicate efficiently and with confidence.

Who am I? Hi! My name is Riddhi. I'm from New Delhi, India and now I happily call Prague my home. I'm an International Relations student at Charles University and in my free time I enjoy travelling and learning new languages.

Sam - UK

Who am I?
Hi, I’m Sam and I’m from the UK. I recently finished a PhD in Czech literature. Back in England, I also had my own little theatre company. I’ve come to Prague to explore the culture and write a novel.

What do you love?
I love writing, reading and developing ideas for short films and plays. I’ve been to and from Prague for ten years, teaching English, sampling the svíčková and the Staropramen, and learning as much as I can about the history. I love it here. I also play the guitar and piano. And obsess (a little) over cricket.

Why me?
My classes will be relaxed and fun, with plenty of opportunity to talk, share ideas, and debate different topics. We will play games and practise conversations you can use every day. Confidence is the key to learning and improving language skills. And this is what we will focus on.

Theodore - USA

Who am I?
My name is Theodore and I came to Europe from the United States three years ago. For most of that time I was living in Slovakia trying to trace the roots of my family's Slovak heritage. In college I studied musicology and classical guitar performance. While in the USA I was a public school teacher for some time and also a gigging musician.

What do you love?
I love dogs. Sometimes it makes my day just to go for a walk or jog and to get to pet a friendly, furry neighbor. I also love my hobbies: reading, exercising, and practicing music. I have been studying the guitar for most of my life but recently I have also been learning to play the violin and to sing more. There is definitely satisfaction to be had from making music on an instrument that you have some mastery of. But there is a whole other kind of satisfaction that comes from achievement during the beginning stages of learning an instrument.

You life slogan or credo?
"Leave things better than you found them."

Why me?
I am a pretty easy-going guy and I love to help others. I believe in making the world a better place by starting right in your own neighborhood. If that means helping my neighbors to speak better English then I can do just that! I have been a teacher for a long time and I have the patience to help students acquire new grammar and vocabulary and also to practice towards fluency. Learning Slovak and Czech myself has helped me to understand what English learners need in order to succeed.
