My name is Meena Toora and I am a native English speaker from the UK. I have lived and taught English in Opava since 2002 and my work experience includes teaching at primary and secondary schools as well as in various companies. I have also given seminars and lectures at conferences around the Czech Republic.
I would describe myself as very open and friendly, and I speak fluent Czech so you don’t need to worry about communication with me.
I teach students of all levels from complete beginners to very advanced and I love my job because I feel I am able to help a lot of people overcome problems, especially with confidence in English conversation.
I offer courses for everyday English, Business English and Technical English. My students range from complete beginners to advanced. Individual lessons mean that I can completely cater to each student’s specific needs, whether it be grammar, conversation, listening practice, etc…
I have taught in companies in Opava since 2002. Lessons can be individual or in groups. I am willing to travel to companies for the lessons or lessons can be online.
I have worked in several schools – primary and secondary. I have mainly helped with English conversation practice and preparation for Maturita but I can also help in other capacities if required.
A lot of people have started working from home and have become more interested in online lessons. This is also a good option for people who do not want to waste time travelling or are outside Opava.
Preparation for Maturita
I can help with all aspects of Maturita, including conversation, listening exercises, grammar, comparing pictures, practising situations, etc… I often do practice papers with students to get them used to the format of the Maturita exam.
My main aim through conversation sessions is to help students gain confidence in speaking. I am very friendly, open and communicative and I believe that students feel very comfortable talking to me. Many of my students have told me about their increased confidence in speaking English in real life situations after lessons with me.
Translations and Proofreading
I only do translations into English. As a native speaker, I can ensure that the English translation will sound authentic. Proofreading is also a popular option. I have previosuly proofread Bachelor’s or Master’s theses, newsletters, as well as other texts….
Czech for foreigners
I studied Czech at university in the UK and am able to help anybody learn Czech if they have a good background in English. I speak fluent Czech and can help you understand the language from the perspective of an English speaker.
