Since 2004, I have divided my time between the U.S. and Prague, pursuing various entrepreneurial activities. One of my projects is teaching English – I love helping others develop their skills in this beautiful language! The world is filled with so many unique and interesting people, and teaching also allows opportunity to compare business experience.

About

In 2004 I left U.S. public high school teaching to teach Business English in Prague. Over the next 12 years, I moved to global IT service coordination at McKinsey, earned my EMBA, worked in financial consulting, and started an import business while transitioning back to the U.S.

I have developed websites and performed marketing and distribution for artisan works, doll clothes, chiropractic care, all-wood heating pellets, and the sportsmen’s club where I devote most of my time as an organizational development specialist. Currently, I am writing a new shooter’s training curriculum, helping my father obtain a medical device patent, and growing an elaborate vegetable garden – organic, of course.

Besides my Executive MBA, I also have an MAT in English (BA Philosophy, Literature). I am sympathetic to the difficulties in learning a new language, since languages are not my forte; your struggles are familiar territory. Helping you build confidence would be my great delight!
