Kenneth has taught English in various academic areas including University and post-graduation studies. He has taught in various countries over the years including Malaysia, Czech Republic (Prague and South Bohemia), Italy, Spain and the USA. His experience includes teaching adults from Elementary to Proficiency, Young Learners, ESP (English for Specific Purposes), Director of Studies, and most recently Military English for NATO. When not teaching or training, Kenneth enjoys sports, reading and spending time with his 3 young daughters.
Adrienne was also a TEFL Course Director and Course Developer in Prague (where she gained external accreditation for the course) and San Diego. Her favorite part of teaching and teacher training is finding each student’s own story, own reasons for studying or traveling, and own ideas about the future of international communication. For Adrienne, teaching English abroad is about unlocking students’ ability to interact with the rest of the world, and seeing first-hand how people from completely different backgrounds can find ways to connect. In her spare time, she loves live music and exploring new places.
While studying Business at the University of Northern Colorado, Zachary completed a two-year internship in corporate training and development where he traveled around the U.S. presenting at Leadership Seminars. During that time, he found that he loves coaching and training. After spending a semester abroad at the University of Economics in Prague, he caught the travel bug and, upon graduating with his B.S. in Business Administration and Management, decided he wanted to see more of the world. Since then, he’s worked in study abroad advising, international internship recruiting, and travel writing for international education websites and journals. His work and research have taken him to over 20 countries—including a consulting job in China, a leadership program in The Bahamas, and a cooking class in Barcelona.
Zachary graduated from TEFL Worldwide with Distinction and currently teaches Exam Prep courses in Prague and Mlada Boleslav. He is passionate about teaching and enjoys introducing new trainees to the profession. You can find him in the office most afternoons for lesson plan help and other questions you have about the course, life in Prague, or starting your own international adventure.
In his free time, Zachary enjoys being outdoors, doing activities like hiking, camping, or (when the opportunity arises) SCUBA diving. He is a total foodie—and self-diagnosed chocolate addict—who likes trying new restaurants all over Prague. That is when he is in Prague, as most weekends find him taking day trips or long weekend adventures to new corners of the continent.
Brandi has a BA in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading Instruction from Pacific Lutheran University in Seattle, Washington. She earned her TEFL certification from our very own TEFL Worldwide Prague. Brandi knew she wanted to be an elementary teacher since the age of 9 and she continues to pursue unique teaching opportunities to zest up her experience. She has taught all ages of children from 2-20 yrs old in almost any subject you can imagine. She spent some time in Namibia, Africa teaching classes of 55 students each, as well as teaching elementary, middle and high school in the USA. In the Czech Republic, Brandi has slowly drifted away from teaching any adult class and currently teaches remedial English to 2nd and 3rd graders at an International school just outside of Prague, full time.
Brandi enjoys motivating and exciting young students to learn. Teaching English as a foreign language has added a new challenge to this passion and she feels the most rewarded when teaching and learning transform into having fun, rather than it simply being a job. She loves passing on ideas, resources and perspective to help others realize their potential as teachers for young learners and hopes to continue to inspire TEFL teachers to open their mind up to the world of teaching children! When Brandi is not teaching, or at home thinking about teaching, or out and about mentally planning her teaching, you can most likely find her at home cuddled up with her two cats, a book, and some warm tea.
