Anya - UK

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!

What do you love?
Czech food! Czech beer! The Czech Repulic in general! I love little baby animals, happy music, singing and dancing (badly) and experimenting in the kitchen. I also adore the sunshine which is one of the reasons I'm not planning on moving back to the north of England any time soon!

You life slogan or credo?
Life is short. Smile while you still have teeth.

Why me?
I promise that my lessons are going to be good fun but that you'll also come away feeling that it was worth it and that you've learned something useful. I will be sure to get to know you all so that we can choose topics that you're interested in and can put into practice in everyday life.

I can help you with: GENERAL ENGLISH, BUSINESS ENGLISH

You life slogan or credo?
Everything will work out, just pass me the corkscrew.

Why me?
I want to help you advance your English to a level where you feel comfortable at a party, at work or at home.

Emily - UK

Who am I?
Hello, I'm Emily and I'm from the UK. I'm bilingual in Czech and English, but grew up in London. I currently live and study in Brno at Masaryk University. I moved to the Czech republic to improve my Czech.

What do you love?
I love walking, camping and being in nature. I also love the city too, and I am currently enjoying living in Brno. It's just the right mix of small and yet well-connected, and there's always interesting little events happening everywhere. I love seeing small, local developments - especially with regards to music, culture and food.

Why me?
The reason I wanted to teach for Tip Top Lingua is because I liked their concept. The causal, content-led approach to learning a language is the best way to go about it. I want to help people improve their skills and I want to do it in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere - like chatting with a friend over coffee. I want to speak about things which interest us and engage us, and I guess I don't want it to feel like a lesson at all.

Viktoriia - USA

Who am I?
Hi, my name is Victoria and I’m from Michigan (USA). I have a huge appreciation for Social sciences, and studied Political Science & Psychology in College.

What do you love?
I love a lot of things. I’m a big nature admirer, and that probably comes from being brought up in such an outdoorsy state like Michigan. I’m obsessed with animals, and have been since childhood. I love volunteering at animal shelters and zoos. I’m an athletic person who loves sports, and spent most of my life figure skating, playing tennis, and running. I adore books.

Praha

Andrej - UK

Who am I?
Hi!
I’m Andrej. I have lived in the UK, Slovakia and the Czech republic. I study material science at CVUT here in Prague. I was born into a bilingual family which speaks English and Slovak. I moved here because I loved the city and everything was so cheap.

What do you love?
I love music, I have played on many instruments during my life, mostly on guitar. I love deep, meaningful conversations, laughing a lot. Dancing and listening to pretty much any genre of music.

You life slogan or credo?
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Why me?
I can promise you classes with a relaxed atmosphere, loads of fun and with plenty of opportunity to speak. We will play games and practise conversations that you actually use in real life.
It is my duty to help you feel comfortable and confident in your new language. Our goal will be to find a topic that is interesting for the both of us.

I want a free lecture with Andrej!

Carl - CN

Who am I?
Ahoj! My name is Shengyue but I go by Carl most of the time. I'm from Chongqing, China and now I am a full-time student at Univerzita Karlova, majoring in Liberal Arts & Humanities.

What do you love?
Traveling have always been my greatest passion and life inspiration! I feel that there is a close connection between traveling and the diversity of human society, which has planted much curiosity and the drive to explore inside of me. To travel is to have an marvelous expedition, finally, it all comes down to ourselves, physically and spiritually.

You life slogan or credo?
Keep exploring. Hit the road.

Why me?
I’ve never lived abroad but I had a homestay experience in California, US. I travelled a lot, home and abroad. I went to a foreign language high school and majored in English. To put it short, just don’t judge a book by its cover, fellows! I use English everyday! But it turns out to be an advantage at some point that I also find it easier to connect with you guys because we are non-native users and we are pretty much facing the same issue and enemy- lack of confidence. That means we are aiming at the same goal- confidence boost.( Of course mine boost comes after several rounds of pivo!)
My classes would be a time for laughter and real practical information and cultural points. You can immerse yourself in a real-life simulation. Also, you can get acquainted with another culture. My Chinese background and international perspective has a lot to offer. Sit back, relax, and here goes your daily doze of English!

Katherine - USA

Who am I?
I'm Katherine, from the US, where I'd been living in New York City for the past five years (although, tragically, I'm not originally from the great city)

What do you love?
I love writing poems and short stories, going to punk and hip-hop concerts, and picnicking. I love budget traveling, and just recently came back from a week by the British seaside in Dover. Hopefully, someday, I'll love luxurious traveling too :)

You life slogan or credo?
When's there's food in front of you, eat. I try to always take advantage of what the world immediately around me has to offer. In Prague, that's free art museums, free movie screenings, and nearly-free beer

Why me?
I like to provide a mixture of grammar and slang in my lessons. We practice both general light conversation and deep discussion of topics like politics and psychology, conspiracy theories and tarot cards.

I want a free lecture with Katherine!

I have an unquenchable thirst for cultural stimulation, I very much enjoy traveling and discovering new places, cuisine, dress, or the best local brew.

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. To say I love rock n’ roll is an understatement and I try to attend as many concerts of all genres as possible of which Prague has so much to offer.

You life slogan or credo?

Niky - CZ

Who am I?

I come from small village close to Prague so I am not a native speaker but I lived, worked and studied in England so I believe I still have plenty to share.

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.

Riddhi - IN

Who am I?
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.

I want a free lecture with Theodore!

Thomas - UK

Who am I?
I’m Thomas and I’m from the south east of England. I studied Asian Studies and German at university. I’ve been teaching business English in Germany for the past year and now want to do more conversational classes here in Prague.

What do you love?
I have a keen interest in animals, languages and history. I have a pet parrot at home, I play a lot of video games and sometimes play guitar too. I’ve tried to learn lots of different languages in the past, but so far only German has stuck. Maybe I’ll learn some Czech in the future.

You life slogan or credo?
“Only when a mosquito lands on your testicle will you find a non-violent solution to a problem.”

Why me?
I want to do a wide variety of lessons with different themes and topics. We can go through some esoteric lessons about history, linguistics, card and board games even role-playing games for the more adventurous. Whatever you want to talk about we can find a way to cover it.

I want a free lecture with Thomas!
