What is your favorite travel memory?

I have had the chance to travel quite a bit, either for holiday or work-related, but some of my favorite travels have been for pleasure with my friends, when I got to enjoy exploring new places while having great company by my side.

Some of my favorite travel memories would be the Budapest-Berlin-Amsterdam-Budapest trip, Barcelona, Lisbon, Split, and Biograd na Moru.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Even though I have only started working for Teacher Finder Ltd. a few months ago, I already had the chance to learn quite a lot about how the company works, the teachers that collaborate with us, and what is it that I can do to make their work easier.

It is also pretty cool to get to learn how to use a web automation app and to realize that is not as scary as I thought.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

I think what makes Teacher Finder unique is the relationships that people have with each other.

It is a friendly and casual environment to work in, and is a relationship built on friendship and trust.

You also get to build a friendly relationship with the teachers that you work with, same as with the students that request our services, even though you never (or almost never) get to meet them in person. Nonetheless, we do our best effort to make sure everyone is happy and satisfied with our work.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

I think the biggest factor in being a successful company is being passionate about what you do, which is reflected in the way you implement your work.
