Ľubica Bôtošová is a person who spends her free time tutoring. She started six years ago in high school when she passed the state exam in the English language.

Her first job was teaching friends of the family and she also registered herself on the website doucma.sk. Until now, she has been regularly meeting about 13 people.

“I like to communicate with people and I discovered that after teaching I had a great feeling for passing my knowledge to people who appreciate it,” Bôtošová said for The Slovak Spectator.

She likes an individual approach to tutoring and the money is not important when teaching.

“We often became friends,” Bôtošová opined.

Household services

She is one of several hundred people registered on the Domelia website sharing their knowledge. Another thousand people are registered at doucma.sk and many people present their skills on their own social networks.
