Ahoj! My name is Tatiana and I´m a certified English teacher, currently purchasing my degree in teaching Slovak and English language and literature at Comenius university in Bratislava. For the past 3 years, I´ve been teaching English at various language institutions abroad and since my return, I´ve got very enthusiastic about teaching Slovak as a foreign language. Besides following a syllabus, I always try to create the lessons according to the students´ needs, requirements and interests. To create an atmosphere in which we´ll all feel comfortable is my rule number one. Then the learning process becomes much easier. I use various verified techniques for teaching and learning but also like to experiment and bring something new. I´ve experienced moving to a foreign country without speaking the language, so I can truly understand your needs and will try to make your life in Slovakia more pleasant and introduce you to our culture and the way the things work here :))
As you might expect, my main hobby is learning and teaching languages. I believe that our jobs should be our hobbies as well. After learning Russian, I understood the magic of Slavic languages and my next challenge is to learn Polish, but I´m also learning Spanish and planning to add much more. I´m pretty much into literature, writing poetry, any sort of art, philosophy, travelling, discovering, understanding different cultures…the list is endless.
