italki teacher since May 22, 2023
I am Alice and I am a Czech native speaker. I work as a language tutor (I teach English, Chinese and Czech), so I have a lot of experience in helping students improve their language skills. My biggest motivation for teaching languages is watching the student make progress. Languages are my main interest, I enjoy both teaching them and learning them. At university I majored in Chinese language and now I am learning Korean and Italian.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher I am very patient and attentive. Thanks to learning languages and taking lessons, I understand how students feel and what the difficulties are. From my teaching experience I know that everyone is different and I can approach every student individually and help focus on skills and areas that need improvement to make faster progress.
My lessons & teaching style
I teach mainly through reading and conversation, even complete beginners, and include grammar whenever needed. But if you prefer a more structured lesson, we can use a textbook of your choice or I can provide materials. I think it is very important to keep learning also outside of the lessons, so if you want, I will give you homework or prepare materials for self study, like articles or videos. I will always try to adjust the lesson to your needs and preferences.
