Hello! If you'd like to speak with a native English teacher, sharpen your grammar or vocab skills, or improve business communication, consider working with me. I aim to create a comfortable, fun learning environment and to teach in a useful, interesting way.

I also have experience proofreading writing of all kinds and am happy to edit/proofread for you. 

I'm an internationally certified English teacher from New York, USA. I moved to Prague a year ago and I love discovering the city and meeting new people. I have experience teaching group classes from beginner to advanced levels, Business English classes, private lessons and children's classes.

If you are interested in setting up a lesson, send me an email at bmarakowitz@gmail.com. We can meet , free of charge, to discuss how I can best help you practice English.
