Native English Speaker with 9 years of teaching experience
Teaching in an international language school in the Czech Republic called Skrivanek
Experience: 9 years
My name is Rachel. I'm a native English speaker. I grew up in England, but have lived in Ireland, the Czech Republic and now in Thailand. I've taught English as a foreign lanugage for over 8 years. Ive taught all levels of English, from Kindergarten children to adults in Businesses. I have also helped students to pass such exams as IELTS. I have taught and prepared business people for job and promotion interviews, Business English for meetings and presentations. As well as general business English for the workplace. I offer courses for this.
I also like to create role play situations where you use the language in practiacal situations, like while shopping, in a restaurant and situations such as these.
I like to tailor my lessons to suit each students individual needs, so I reallly like to et to know my students well so I can better do this.
I also have quite a lot of experience doing different things, such as running an IT company, including doing hardware and software related tasks. I ran a small guesthouse for 5 years while living in the Czech Republic. I also was involved in the reconstruction of an old hourse as well as the construction of a new house.
I like various sports, music, singing, dancing, art and playing the guitar.
My philosophy is that to become proficient and confident in the language you need to use it and speak as much as possible. Practice makes perfect as they say.
So I look forward to meeting you soon!
