TEFL certified teacher with over 5 years of experience - neutral American accent
italki teacher since Jan 6, 2022
Hello! I have been teaching English in the Czech Republic for over five years to all ages. I'm an easy going teacher invested in helping to build your confidence and English skills.
I have experience teaching in museums, classrooms, schools, and online. I spent two years as a kindergarten teacher before I transitioned to teaching school children online. Now I enjoy teaching both children and adults on italki!
I am curious about learning many things which makes me a great conversationalist. If there is a specific topic that you would like to practice speaking about in English, I am the perfect person to practice with. I personally enjoy art, literature, philosophy, travel, sports etc!
Me as a Teacher
I like to describe myself as a fun, inviting, and encouraging teacher. I understand that learning a new language can be scary and uncomfortable. I like to keep my classroom structured, but lighthearted. I want you to make progress through planned lessons, but I don't want my lessons to feel like you're sitting in a strict monotonous classroom.
Most importantly, I want to work with you on accessing and implementing your goals.
If you have any questions or concerns about pricing or lessons in general, please write to me. I actively offer lessons at a discount to best accommodate your needs.
I look forward to learning with you in the future! :)
My lessons & teaching style
Each lesson is tailored to the student's needs. I always aspire to give each student the most amount of practice and speaking time as possible. I believe the teacher should not spend more time speaking than the student.
I like to utilize exciting and interesting activities in order to keep students learning and engaged. No topic is off limits with me :)
Each lesson will be made for the student. Once we have our first call, I will put together a plan based on your weaknesses and your English learning goals. As we continue to learn together, I will continue to add and adjust your curriculum based on our progress.

I greatly improved my confidence to speak English when I met Briana. The classes are very interesting. Briana focuses on all subjects that interest me. I feel that the lessons are very custom, both for my needs and my interests.

I am writing this review to say big THANKS to one of the best language teacher I have ever seen :) Professor Briana is highly devoted to her classes and student and does her best to prepare interesting classes that will suites her student's needs. I was planning to study English with her only during summer but now can't stop just because I enjoy them so much.
P.S. for all those students who are still struggling to find a REAL good English teacher, Briana is the best choice. Professional approach, super positive vibe - all you need to success in your studies.
