About Jitka

Hi! My name is Jitka /ˈjɪtkʌ/ and I’m an online teacher. I help my students fall in love with languages and find out what works for them in language learning.

I teach English and Czech. I offer English courses for individuals and pairs (you can learn English with your friend, how cool!). I run Czech group courses for Brits who have Czech family. I help them to grasp the basics so they can communicate with their relatives in Czech.

We all have different talents, but I believe that everyone can learn a foreign language, including you! You just need to find a little bit of time regularly. Stop being afraid of making mistakes (mistakes are fine; they help us improve but they must not stop us from speaking). Ideally, you need a kind, encouraging teacher who will make you speak a lot during the lessons and require you to practise at home. Somebody like me. ☺️

I come from Czechia, but Edinburgh, Scotland, has been my second home since 2016. ♥ I have a MA degree (Mgr.) from Charles University in Prague, Czechia, where I studied English, French and Czech.

Besides languages (I speak French, too, and a tiny bit of Spanish), I love cycling, wild swimming, exploring new places (castles especially), taking photos, cooking and baking, playing around with macramé and crochet.

Now you’ve heard from me but what do my students say? Look here:
