Karolína Jindrová BA (Hons) Managing Director

We are a young agency whose goal is to provide above-standard services to our students and a great work experience to our teachers. After spending time abroad, I decided to return to the Czech Republic and start my own agency. Extra Mile strives to provide our students the opportunity to have lessons with native speakers on regular basis. We bring native speakers from UK, US and other English speaking countries to experience life in the Czech Republic in a beautiful town of Říčany just 20 minutes away from Prague, the historical domain of Europe.

My name is Lisa and I am the Senior Teacher at Extra Mile. I come from England but I have lived in the Czech Republic for more than four years. In that time I completed my CELTA and I have gained experience in leadership position.

Anna Faller BA (Hons)

My name is Anna, and I moved to Prague from a beautiful town in northern Michigan. I was first bit by the travel bug during a family trip to Ireland nearly ten years ago, and now I am literally living the dream! In the US, I received my undergraduate degree in English language and literature, and taught secondary students for two years before moving abroad. I received my TEFL and YLT certifications here in Prague, and I’m eager to combine my teaching experience in creative and effective English lessons. I have taught in both classroom and one-to-one settings, and have experience with young learners up to adults. Though I’m brand new to Extra Mile, I’m excited to have discovered a dynamic environment where both students and teachers are encouraged to grow!

Zenko Synczyszyn BA (Hons)

My name is Zenko and I am originally from the United Kingdom. I have previously taught English in Colombia, Turkey and Cameroon. In Colombia I was mainly teaching business English to company directors, employees and entrepreneurs. In Turkey I was working with a charity focused on teaching English to refugee children with little or no experience of the language. In Cameroon I was responsible for teaching business, English and life skills to teenage mothers. I am TEFL certified and have experience teaching students of all levels and ages. My energy and passion for teaching ensures that there is no such thing as a boring class with me. Teaching with Extra Mile has given me the opportunity to grow as a teacher and learn from others, in a friendly and professional environment.

Ulysses Lara BA (Hons)

Ahoj, my name Ulysses and I am from a lovely little town known as Ojai which is in Southern California. I wanted to travel Europe and gladly ended up in Prague teaching English and sharing my knowledge to better individuals language skills. I believe it’s not only important to learn and teach English, but to understand one’s culture and their roots. Everybody has stories to tell, and what better way to do so through communicating and understanding one another. I want to teach people to listen and understand rather than listening to just reply. Anyway, I have a bachelors from a state university in Los Angeles, a TEFL Certificate and a Young Learners Teaching Certificate. My aim is to educate the students BUT have a fun time while doing so.
