Hello, everyone! Dobrý den! I have finished my Bachelor's degree in Teaching Czech language and Pedagogy. After that I have studied at Charles University in Prague, Teaching Czech language as a Foreign Language and Teaching Czech literature- for my Master's degree. Now I am living in Arizona - Phoenix, working as an online teacher of Czech and Yoga, working with kids with special needs.

I finished my 200 yoga teacher training in September 2020, in Phoenix, Arizona. I am the most interested in restorative yoga, yoga nidra and meditations, but I believe - in yoga it is always necessary to keep our mind open :-) I am interested in yoga dance and creating translations of texts about yoga (Czech-English).

I have teaching experience with kids (4-12 years old, Art + 4-10 years old - Czech language as a foreign language), I have been a teacher of Czech language for adults in Ukraine and I am doing my online lessons for about 4 years.

I have been tutoring non-Czech speaking kids, teaching them Czech and assisting their parents with looking for their primary school in Czech Republic.

I like to connect both language skills with the information about Czech culture.

In 2019 I have moved to United States and I would like to continue with my teaching experience - on-line or in-person. I would be happy to help you with your Czech language skills, with your yoga practice, artistic skills etc. ! :-)

Ahoj!

Painting

I taught teaching kids (4-6 years old + 9-12 years old) in a leisure centre in Czech Republic. It was a club where we created lots of artistic things - we were painting together, drawing, creating little things as cups, animals made of fruit, face masks. In the end of the academic year we used to have exhibitions for family members and public. When I moved to Arizona, I took a course of Painting with Oils and Acrylic.

Hard-working and knowledgable tutor

Kristyna is an amazing teacher; she speaks Czech natively and so she's able to explain all the small details about the language while being patient with new learners. She's also very hard-working - many times I would send something at the last moment and she would still find time to grade it before our lesson. Thanks to her I passed the Czech exam with no problem! Thank you Kristyna for all your help!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kristyna has been a fantastic tutor. She always is prepared with multiple ways of learning and even personalizes the lessons for my interests. It is obvious she is an experienced teacher who knows how to make learning fun.

Dexter, 25 lessons with Kristyna

Methodical and responsible Czech tutor

I have been studying Czech with Kris for a month and I’m very happy with my choice! It’s not easy to learn such a difficult language that barely has any resource online from ground zero. Initially I was very worried that I would learn purely fragments of phrases, or it would be too heavy on grammar. But Kris listened to my need and tailored the class to make it very well balanced on both end. She is not just a native Czech speaker but more importantly someone that knows how to teach this language to foreigners. Strongly recommend if you want to learn this language systematically.

My first lesson was outstanding

I just finished my first lesson with Kristyna. She was so patient and made me feel comfortable from the start with my weak but eager czech. I was so impressed. Kristyna is top notch. I look forward to my next lesson. I was left with a very good feeling that I will learn lots of good czech- speaking, writing, and reading. I strongly recommend.

Trent, 28 lessons with Kristyna

Great Experience!

Very understanding and skilled tutoring lessons. Can effectively guide students to start hearing, pronouncing, and writing more instinctively. She has been a great help. And I look forward to our sessions together.

Conrad, 91 lessons with Kristyna

Flexible and knowledgeable

Starting from the beginning is never easy. She helped me break down the language piece by piece so I could really understand the basics. Anyone can see that she enjoys sharing her language and culture with those who are passionate about learning. She was flexible with schedules and technology malfunctions along with always being understanding of life outside of studying. She helped build my basics so I could understand while being patient with me while I tried to pronounce hard words. Overall she is very kind and knows her language very well.
