My name is Lucie and I would love to help you improve your skills in English as a Second Language. I believe that knowing the subject is not enough. One must also be a good teacher. So many native speakers think they can teach you the language because they have spoken it since birth. However, a lot of times they don't understand how it works to learn it as a second language. My background has given me a tremendous advantage. I can relate to all mistakes because I have been through that process myself.
I graduated from Masaryk University in the Czech Republic with a Master's degree in Latin and German. I taught languages for four years in high school. Then my husband and I moved to the US. As I became proficient in English, teaching it to other ESL students became my hobby. I tutored several students, was a substitute at an ESL program at a local college and then decided to get a certificate for teaching ESL. I finished the CELTA course with the highest grade possible but did not pursue this career because I gave birth to my daughter and two years later to my son.
They are a little older now so I would like to continue with my life-long passion and help you improve your English skills whatever your needs are. I have studied many modern methods of teaching ESL and have received very positive feedback from all my students.
I look forward to hearing from you.
