Hello! My name is Jeff! I am 38, British and I have lived in Prague for 11 years.
I specialise in teaching children from the ages of 6 to 12 years of age. Although I have taught students 3 years old to 82 years old!
In the 11 years I have been teaching, I have guided 100s of students through Cambridge YLE and Cambridge for Schools ( FCE, CAE and CPE) Czech mirroring. I also spent 2 years being trained by some of the best Czech / English teachers in the Czech republic. One of whom was voted the best teacher in the Czech republic in 2014. I was trained to teach Czech standards and outcomes using English as the teaching language. I am able to teach 1st grade to 6th grade in the following subjects: Arts, Crafts, Maths, I.C.T and Drama.
For the past 3 years I have been working in Klanovice where I introduced a comprehensive reading and writing system for 2nd grad, using Cambridge text books, Oxford Reading tree and Schofields & Sims Sound Phonics.
In 2017, my advanced and interactive teaching methods helped my 1st grade class to come 2nd in all of the Czech republic in English (see photos)
If you are looking for an interactive 1to1 teacher, be that for children, teens or adults please feel free to mess
