Hey there, my name is Petra (26yo), a Slovak traveler who avidly likes exploring the specifics of different countries through direct living and working there. To date, I have experienced what life is like in 7 countries, my own, the Czech Republic, and the United States. In addition, during my undergraduate studies, I travelled for three years in Belgium, Canada, England, and Turkey for work and cultural-immersion stays to expand my understanding of cultural and national differences.
Experienced, resourceful and patient teacher with IELTS (band score 8.0) and a state leaving exam (level C1). Studying and teaching of foreign languages has become a lifelong passion of mine. As English is not my first language, I believe I can relate to my students, their potential issues and cultural differences with much ease.
Foundations obtained at bilingual high school and taking university courses led by international professors at Mendel University in the Czech Republic. Enrichment of theory through extensive travelling and working in English speaking environments – two years in the US, one year in Canada, one year in the UK. Practice in teaching in class or company settings (group/individual/different age categories).
