      We don’t provide this service as far as I know, but maybe someone will react to your comment. 🙂 Otherwise, based on where you live, I recommend searching for an English tutor on the internet, especially on Facebook in groups with tutors. There are many people and students online looking to teach.

    1. Hi David!
      That’s amazing that you’re doing this! My advice is to get in touch with some of the local charity orgs that are organising help for the refugees. The main one is definitely Člověk v tísni/People in need ( Contact them and if they can’t use you, they’ll definitely give you tips on where to go or who to call.

      Best and thank you for your help,
