Having studied numerous languages, I am more than happy to share the tips I have learnt along the way. I consider conversing to be an important part of my language lessons and will provide you with environment where you will get more confident rather than be afraid to make mistakes.
I am a UCL Physics student coming from a bilingual - Czech and Slovak - family. I taught English and German as foreign languages in a language school and studied four languages myself, which helps me relate to students learning a new language.
I reserve myself the right to cancel a lesson if any academic assignment comes up and I cannot postpone working on it. However, I will tell you at least 2 days in advance, so that arrangements can be made.
If a lesson needs to be cancelled from your side, I need at least a 48 notice - otherwise, I'll kindly ask you for a payment as if the lesson was held.

Perfect! I have had a few lessons with Pavlina now and she is a great teacher, patient and encouraging. She would tailor the lessons to suit my learning needs, but I am happy with how she is teaching. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pavlina for learning Slovakian.
Gill is a great student to work with. She is quick to pick up the right pronunciation in Slovak and eager to learn.
Perfect! Pavlina is an excellent teacher - she really goes above and beyond to plan lessons that help me to learn and practice speaking, writing, and reading slovak. Every lesson is a mix of new challenge and review so I feel like I am learning new things and also not forgetting past teachings. She is also friendly and easy to work with and creates many opportunities to ask questions or have input in the lessons! I highly recommend Pavlina as a teacher if you want to learn conversational slovak and be able to speak with friends and family in no time at all.
I am happy to have Alex as my student. She is a quick learner, interested in the language and asks thoughtful questions.
Perfect! Pavlina is teaching me Slovakian and I cant reccomend her enough. She has well organised lessons that provide incremental learning and challenges to ensure that you are learning at the right pace. She is patient well, professional and friendly which makes each lesson valuable and something to look forward to. Thanks Pavlina!
Glen is a great student to work with.
Perfect! Pavlina helped me to understand and communicate basic phrases in a short time frame. She was encouraging, creative with her lessons and introduced the right amount of new material to keep me on my toes. Thanks a lot!
Mira is a quick and eager learner, great to work with!
I can highly recommend Pavlina. She is a great teacher, helpful, likeable and responsible. She always finds the best way how to teach you and is able to explain an issue in different ways. I have worked with her for 4 years and have just the best experience.
I think she is the best person to learn with.
I have known Pavlina for a long time and have witnessed the success of her students after her periodically working with them. Not only thanks to this observation, but also based on my personal experience with her tutoring, I am perfectly sure about her absolute suitability.
