Ondřej was my first private teacher of English and I have to say, I love English ever since. Lessons with him were like a 3in1 package. Knowledge+fun+interesting facts about English language included in one lesson. His approach was always profesional and positive, and he was always prepared for every session for 110 per cent. Knowledge which I gained in his classes is still very usefull for me and I thank him for his patience and for showing me how beautiful English language is. I would recommed Ondřej's lessons to everyone because he is the best teacher ever!

Passionate about what he's doing and doing it properly. These are two first associations that come to my mind when thinking of Ondřej. Not long ago, Ondřej had a difficult task to do during a training of teachers he was supposed to conduct. I'm a teacher myself and he was meant to show me how to be a better teacher. It wasn't easy at all as it's a horrible job to teach teachers! However, his great knowledge of methodology and inborn teaching skills did the job. Ondřej infects his students with enthusiasm and motivation to study. During his lessons you learn without even realizing it. Thank you, Ondřej, for all the time we spent and all the hints you gave me. I do implement your ideas and they work.

I met Ondřej two years ago and I have to say it has been the most important moment in my English learning. We started to work on preparation for my graduation exam. Till I met Ondřej, my English had been on intermediate level; especially my conversation skills weren't good. Anyway, after few months of working with him, it definitely changed to quite a different story. Ondřej gave me confidence and helped to improve my English a lot. Regarding his lessons, they were really useful, exciting and fun. In my opinion, his knowledge of English language is on the highest level of a native speaker. This was the most important thing for me because we used to speak in English only. Lastly, I have to say that he has been simply one of the best teachers I have ever had, and one of the best people I've had an honor to meet.

I'm really happy to tell you that I have passed the CAE exam with grade B. After the exam I was not really sure if I would pass because it was quite difficult. Especially the time pressure was tougher than I expected. But I'm so relieved that I know the results now. Thank you again for your help and support. I really enjoyed the English course.
