a pleasure to work with
I started learn Czech 3 months ago. I already know Russian and it definitely helped to learn faster, but also Ondřej was very flexible and adopting to my learning speed. We spend a lot of time going through similarities of grammar and words with things I already know and it made me feel much more comfortable with language. Ondřej has much more experience teaching Czech to english speakers, so I was kind of exception. But even with not very much practice (currently I speak only at my lessons), I think I will be able to speak to locals on my trip to Prague next week.
It is one thing to have a good command of English language, but it is of course a completely different matter to teach it somebody else. Which was a dilemma I was facing when I was looking for an English tutor for my 16-years old son. Although my English is reasonably good (I hope!) I am totally unable to explain it to others.
As such, I consider myself very lucky to stumble upon Ondrejs profile - unlike some other candidates I interviewed for the position, Ondrej was able to accommodate my sons needs very well (he was almost a complete beginner), create an enjoyable and supportive atmosphere for learning, explain things in unambiguous manner, and structure a purposeful methodological plan to follow. Initially he was giving him face to face lessons twice weekly for the period of 2 months, later they switched to an online method, having lessons once weekly via Skype for around 12 months.
The progress my son made under Ondrej`s supervision is simply phenomenal, currently he can enjoy fluent (though fairly simple) conversations with native English speakers and feeling confident while speaking in English, which is certainly more than I thought can be accomplished in such a relatively short space of time.
Though Ondrejs first language is not English, he speaks almost with no accent, which I personally found quite remarkable. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Excellent help with Czech cases and grammar. Prompt response to my enquiry. I am very glad to have found a very good tutor.
Ondřej demonstrated his strong understanding of English in our initial correspondence on Tutor Hunt. His use of a number of English phrases and expressions filled me with confidence that not only would he be able to communicate to me very well in my native tongue, but that he himself had been through the process of learning a language to the level that I was looking to achieve.
In our first session he took the time to understand how I like to learn, whilst explaining how he would look to teach me Czech. This process was invaluable as it taught me a lot about my learning capabilities.
After only our first session I was able to return home and hold a very basic conversation with my Czech girlfriend. I should note she has been trying to teach me Czech for three years.
The other big positive for me was the flexibility Ondřej was able to demonstrate in scheduling my lessons.
Tailored the lessons to my requirements. Clear and detailed explanations. Couldn`t ask for more.
