Hello! I am teacher Ivan. I am a Serb and I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am a passionate teacher with about 4 years of teaching experience both offline and online. The advantage of taking classes with me is that in addition to English and Serbian, you will also be able to study geography. I consider this a great advantage because geography is interesting in itself, so in addition to knowledge of the language, you will acquire other useful knowledge that will make learning more interesting. Beside textbooks, I love free conversations and discussions about some deep topics like philosophy, psychology, self-development, business, etc. Also, any topic where we can discuss a lot is good. I'm a pretty curious person. My hobbies: sports (MMA, running, tennis), music (guitar), graphic design, programming, reading books, chess, making videos for YouTube and learning foreign languages (French, Russian, Spanish, German, Italian, and Japanese). I have almost 4 years of teaching experience. From 2018 to 2020 I worked as a teacher of programming and robotics for kids (Scratch, Makeblock robots, HTML, and CSS). I also have experience teaching children in kindergartens. Since 2020 till today, I'm working as an online English teacher. During my English lessons, I've taught geography as well. Students like it, so I don't mind if you want to learn it through English or Serbian. In my classes, students are participants in the learning process, not someone who just listened to what the teacher said. My teaching style is based on learning logically that I consider as the most important. Also, I try to explain things in the simplest possible way. For example, If we practice pronunciation, I'll not concentrate only on phonetics and rules—I'll explain in my own way also. I like to give a few examples to show the student more ways to say the same thing. When it comes to teaching geography, my style is reflected through discussions, so that the student can come up with answers logically. During this process, the student can learn a lot and gain self-confidence. I want students to feel relaxed and confident in my classes. During my lessons, we can use some additional materials like pictures/illustrations, blank maps, workbooks etc.
