About Me

My name is Jake and I am a native speaker from the USA with TEFL certification and over 7 years experience teaching ESL. I started teaching for different language schools around Prague. With time, I developed my own private practice for one-on-one / small group lessons for both teenagers and adults. Now I mostly teach private lessons for students at small and big companies in Prague. 

I also am the founder of a website which is a resource for other English teachers. The name of the platform is called Veslio - we create and provide modern ESL lesson plans based on real-world videos. I use these lesson plans often with my students and it is a very effective tool to help students improve!

I love teaching English - it's both a passion and hobby for me. I offer personalized lessons that are designed to help you develop your English skills. Looking forward to working with you!

  • News topics around the world / in your country
