Meet Katka

Certified English Language Teacher

Born and raised right in the middle of Europe, in the Czech Republic, in 2013 I graduated from the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen (yes, the City of beer!) earning my Master's Degree in Education, in Teaching English and German language.

 

Since then I have had the privilage to teach English on three different continents (Europe, Canada, Australia), at eight different schools, to students of all ages, levels of English and nationalities (Korea, Japan, China, Latin America, Europe...), in class and on-line, and it has been an absolute pleasure. 

As a huge fan of traveling, I have always had a soft spot for foreign languages as I couldn't be any more curious about other cultures and other people's stories. That is why I am currently based in Vancouver, Canada and I cannot complain. It is such a stunning place surrounded by the sea and mountains.
