"I have taught English as a foreign language ever since I worked at a private boarding school in England in 1998. In the years that followed, I gained more experience while teaching ESL at public and private schools in Poland, Japan and Italy. In the past several years, I have also worked as an elementary school substitute teacher in Italy and US.

In my ESL teaching career I have taught students of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds and I have always found it easy to empathize with them and see the learning process from their perspective. As a foreign language learner myself, I can put myself in their shoes. I know how much work and effort it takes to become confident and fluent in a foreign language, especially if you start as an adult. In fact, I am currently learning my fourth foreign language, Italian. What I love most about ESL teaching, apart from helping my students succeed, is the opportunity it gives me to learn about their cultures and languages.

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching ESL and English literature and I also completed a postgraduate course in translation. I have tutored students with a variety of different goals, from communication skills development to exam preparation (TOEIC, TOEFL, Cambridge exams). I am always happy to guide my students through the intricacies of the English language providing customized classes focused on grammar, writing, conversation, pronunciation, listening comprehension and vocabulary enrichment.

In addition to the above, I also provide translation/interpretation services in the English-Polish and Polish-English language combination.

Please contact me to learn more and schedule your first English class with me." less...
