I have been teaching for as long as I can remember

In the distant past I loved playing at being a teacher and conducting Polish lessons. Back then I didn’t suspect that conducting Polish lessons to foreigners was going to become my job. In fact, I started to teach professionally by coincidence. One day, when I was working in a language school office, a group of nice Germans came looking for some Polish lessons. The school did not have such in its offerings. I took pity on those people and as I had a Master’ degree in Polish Philology with teaching faculty I started to teach them Polish myself.

As long as I can remember I have been studying

Apart from graduating from different faculties and fields of studies I have also been studying foreign languages for many years. The fact of the matter is that studying a foreign language is a job for life. Rest assured though, I promise that you will not need me for that long. I speak English and Spanish. I study German and basic French. In the past I also flirted with studying Italian. For some years already I have spent a lot of time abroad. It all let me not seeing you only from a teacher´s perspective. I understand perfectly well how it is to be in a society where you understand nobody and where nobody understands you. I also understand perfectly well how it is to be a student. Also, what it is like to be a student that has very little time for studying but wants or must start understanding and speaking a foreign language quickly. I know that sometimes a lot depends on it.

I like my work

At present I conduct Polish lessons online but in the past I have taught in person as well. I have conducted individual and group Polish lessons, both for individual and business clients. I co-operated with different language schools in Poznań for several years. I have conducted Polish lessons both in Poland and abroad in a Polish school in Madrid. Although the circumstances of my work have changed through all these years one thing has always remained constant. I always do my best for my students to speak Polish quickly and for my Polish lessons online not to be only an obligation but a pleasure!
