About Lucie

My name is Lucie and I was born in the Czech republic. I am an honor student with a Master's Degree in International Relations and European Studies (2015). Between 2006 and 2009 I was enrolled in high school and college in Kentucky, US. During my studies I was always a driven, hard-working student, who always pushed herself to be at the top of the class. I love learning and in the past 5 years I have also discovered my passion for teaching. I was an English lecturer for over 4 years in a private English school in the Czech republic. I have lots of experience with teaching pre-school children, preteens, teenagers and adults. I always plan my lessons ahead with a great deal of attention to every individual student's needs. Once learning becomes fun, the success follows.
I specialize in tutoring English, but I am also well educated in European/world history, French and Czech language, politics and geography (especially the Middle East region).
Every lesson I assign homework to students or encourage them to prepare small projects about which we can talk in the following classes. The goal is to keep the student interested and challenged.
For the following couple of months (March to June) I will be available for online courses 24/7, but if arrangements can be made I could also visit a student at home. My base rate for online lessons is 40 dollars/hour and for in-person lessons 80 dollars/hour.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.

I have an over 4-year long experience with teaching English (individuals and groups). I received a lot of positive feedback from students' parents or the students themselves. My English is at advanced level (I studied Bachelor's and Master's degree in English). I have a B1 French certificate from 2013 and I am a native Czech speaker.

Working for over 4 years as an English lecturer I have learned all English grammar and reading rules. I am able to explain the material in a way the student will understand. It is important to 'customize' the material as every student is different.

As European schools and university value history a lot, I had over 7 years of world history classes in the Czech republic, two semesters at Jefferson Community College, KY and another 2 semesters at the Metropolitan University, Prague. History has always been my passion and I always wanted to know more about it. I especially researched European and Middle East history, however I am confident to tutor other world areas' history. History is a story and once you are able to comprehend it as such, it is no longer a subject to memorize, but to understand.

I am looking forward to hearing from you, Please, contact me any time.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Grammar

I worked as an English lecturer for over 4 years. During that time I have read and studied numerous English textbooks and learned all basic and advanced English grammar rules.

Microsoft Word

Working with Microsoft Word has been a necessity for me for the past 7+ years. I took a Microsoft Office course during my college studies in Lousiville, KY. Nearly all university works were done in this program. I also wrote two quite extensive theses in Word.

Proofreading

Understanding the text and its individual parts is extremely important for all students. During my 5-year university studies I largely relied on my good comprehension of text, speed-reading skills and the ability to determine what the text really says.

Reading

During my college and university years I read thousands of pages of academic resources and books. This taught me how to look for crucial information and how to quickly and confidently determine what is the text's main message.

Study Skills

I studied in a Czech grammar school, US high school, US college and Czech English-speaking university for 5 years. At every school I was at the top of the class due to personal schedules and strategies I created for myself. I have adopted many useful ways to study efficiently. Every individual student has to find his own way to make studying effective and I am more than willing to share my experience.

TOEFL

I have taken a TOEFL test myself in 2008 with a very satisfying grade. The test comprises of four parts that include all the ways of communication in English. As an English lecturer I used to use listening, reading, writing and speaking exercises with all my students. I also have many materials to work with.

World History

World history was a big part of my International Relations studies. History is an indispensable pillar for the knowledge we have today. The importance of understanding historic facts and being able to explain today's reality is of utmost importance not only in the academic circles but also in our everyday lives. That is why we should be aware of what happened in the past in all the corners of the world.
