I have been teaching English as a foreign language since April 1994. My experience covers all levels from beginner to proficiency. In addition, I have successfully prepared students for the following examinations: Pitman elementary, Pitman intermediate, FCE, CAE and CPE. With regard to Business English, I have taught from lower intermediate to advanced, assisting the latter with preparation for BEC (Business English Certificate) Primary, Vantage and Higher.
As DoS, I was required to do the following: allocate students to classes according to ability; allocate teachers to classes based on their experience; produce timetables for intensive and evening classes, and organise substitution for absent teachers. Furthermore, I had to monitor student progress in the 4 skill areas and keep appropriate records, e.g. mock examinations. This ensured that the students were given professional advice visone-aone-vis the examinations they were to be entered for. Finally, it was my responsibility to make sure that the students were properly prepared for these examinations, and that the teachers knew what was involved by doing so. With regard to the Cambridge exams, IH/lLC Brno entered 34 students in June 2002, of which 32 passed. This constituted one of best years ever for examination results.
From September 2006 to 2012, I was employed as a qualified Business English teacher on the college's Undergraduate English programme at Cambridge Business English Certificate (BEC) Primary, Vantage and Higher levels.
My duties included:
Since March 2012, I have been working as an online English teacher offering Business and General English courses which have been designed to provide my students with essential speaking opportunities, accurate pronunciation models, vocabulary acquisition and grammar input, all of which are taught through the four skills of listening, writing, reading and speaking.
