Meet the Tutors

Jaime Lilley, BA

I moved to Prague from Los Angeles in 2005, and have been teaching ever since. I did both my CELTA and DELTA at Akcent, and I’ve been a CELTA tutor since 2009, and a DELTA tutor since 2012. Nowadays, I split my time between teaching and training, and it’s the most enjoyable work I’ve ever had: I’m always learning and experimenting, and no two days are ever the same, but the best thing about it is the relationships with students and trainees. I really can honestly say that I love doing my job. In my free time, I’m an avid reader and writer, and I enjoy photography, traveling, yoga and spending time with my husband and son.

Mgr. Alžběta Polišenská

I have taught English since 1993. I received Trinity Licentiate Diploma in ELT in 1998 and I have been involved in teacher training since 2001. I’m based in Brno and work on CELTA courses in Brno and Prague. If I’m not travelling between these two places, I like hiking, photography, listening to music or sometimes just staying in and reading.

Hanna Szołtysik, BA, MA


I am Polish, currently based in Prague. I have been teaching English for more than 10 years now and I have been with Akcent since 2017. So far I have worked in Poland, Germany and the Czech republic and who knows where next... I love traveling, doing new things and meeting inspiring people. I am a student too- learning Italian and Czech for a couple of years. This way I can better relate to my students and most of all expand my love of languages.
