My name is Kamila Koutná, I am 36 years old and I have just successfully finished my 6-year distant study of a Bachelor degree in Environmental Science at the Open University in England. Applicants interested in studying the Basic Science in English are welcomed!
English has been my hobby since I was 10 years old. I gave my first English lessons when I was still a grammar school student. And my first success of turning a C-student of English into an A-student motivated me to further teaching, collecting suitable material and studying new techniques and teaching approaches.
After finishing my high school in the Czech Republic, I have made my dream of living and studying in England come true several times (London, Manchester, Blackpool, Brighton, Bournemouth, Norwich, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Stirling, Five…), all in all I managed to fulfil 15 years of my life in England, I acquired the FCE and CPE certificate and lot of experience.
Since year 2002 I have been an entrepreneur in the Czech Republic in the field of teaching, simultaneous interpretation and translation of the English language.
English and tutoring are together with nature and children my lifetime hobbies. I enjoy experiencing progress and success of my pupils, students and clients and find it fulfilling.
I have not studied pedagogy, nevertheless, my love to children and my interest in their psychology and development may slightly compensate this disadvantage:-)
Thanks to my previous job in a life time education sphere, where I implemented new courses for adults for accreditation purposes of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports activities in the Czech Republic, I gained theoretical knowledge and practical expertise of an andragog, the teacher for adults. I am able to offer you a course tailored to your needs, using quality modern materials and tools.
I do not speak Czech in my lessons, unless you ask me to, homework is a matter of course and I strictly avoid boring theory explanations.
I am looking forward to meeting you, your originality and progress!
