FAQ

What is Teacher Creature? 

Teacher Creature is a database of English teachers who live in Prague and the Czech Republic.  (You can also find Spanish teachers, Russian teachers, French teachers, German teachers, etc.)

Unlike using a language agency or school to find a teacher for you, here you select your own teacher and negotiate your own terms.  How much you will pay for your English lessons is between you and the teacher.

How do I know a teacher is good?
 

You will probably have to meet with him or her first, maybe even have several lessons, before you will be able to tell if he or she is a good teacher.  Some things to keep in mind though are:

 

  • Is the teacher on time?  Reliable?
  • Is the teacher prepared?
  • And, how do you feel with the teacher?  Is it a good personal match?

How do the teachers on Teacher Creature compare to teachers who work in a language school?
 

Most of the teachers you will find here also work for language schools and agencies.  It’s typical for a teacher to have a full-time schedule with a school, and to also have a few private students for some extra money.  So, the teachers are most likely the same as you would find at a language school.
