We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable.

I would like to outline my extensive experience, qualifications, and expertise in teaching English, Italian and Croatian (native). I believe I... possess the skills, qualifications and vital experience necessary for the role, but also the passion and dedication to lead students to succeed.I have over 10 years’ experience as an English teacher (including 2 years teaching in China in private training centers and a couple of months of online teaching), working with children aged 3 - 18 in schools and in a kindergarten. I taught also adults and offered private English lessons, too. In addition, I have a degree in English and Italian language and literature and am fluent in both as well as a native Croatian speaker. My previous work involved me traveling internationally, where I worked as an interpreter - in this role I worked under pressure and had to adapt to the culture of the country and I feel confident that I could apply that to this job. In my previous teaching roles, I took a resourceful and creative approach to teaching, organising competitions, field trips, and other activities in the aim of making learning a fun experience, and I believe that this approach was successful in seeing students achieving high results.I am extremely dedicated and reliable, with a strong passion for language.
