The knowledge of English will enable you to open the door to new job opportunities, adventure and even friendship. My individual approach will help you eliminate all obstacles and we will open the door together.
My name is Hana Andersen, I am 36 years old and English has been part of my life for almost 20 years. After grammar school I studied English at a language school in Brno, which I finished by my successful passing of the FCE exam. Convinced I can speak English, I first went to work in Israel and then I spent one year in the USA. Only there I realised my English is nowhere near as good as I thought. Thus after my return I travelled to take on another study stay in the Republic of South Africa in order to broaden my knowledge. Then I anchored in Brno and worked for companies that always demanded active knowledge of English afterwards (these were mostly international companies where English was the communication language). I carried on with my studies during work and acquired the CAE certificate, then BCE, the certificate in business English and I also realised that I simply cannot exist without English. Therefore I have been giving private English lessons since 2008 and my aim among others is to free them from their bashfulness in an entertaining and natural way.
Now I have been living in Denmark for the second year and working in our family business and although I use English every day I still give private lessons. This has become my hobby. I believe that my knowledge and mainly together with my experience from practice will help you reach your destination – master your English!
My opinions regarding teaching languages via Skype
From the tutor´s point of view, I must admit, I cannot praise teaching via Skype enough. I can be virtually anywhere with internet connection and teach English. I have students not only from different parts of the Czech republic, but also students living at different parts of the world, in different time zones. Another huge advantage is the possibility to shift lessons according to my needs. We tend to meet with our students half way (We cooperate with our students to meet each others needs) and it works. The individual lesson via Skype is very intensive and truly taylored to suit each student. I have a big helper during teaching via Skype – the internet. I almost always use the internet during my lessons and thus make them more diverse – I needn´t rely on one textbook only. Thanks to one of the Skype tools, screen sharing, the student has all the materials right there on the screen and we can then proceed with individual excercises. In short, I have no objections, and I am glad I can be part of the team.
