Hi there! I am a native Polish Speaker who currently teaches English in a binational institution (Peru - United States) in Trujillo. I have been teaching Polish and English for more than 4 years by giving private lessons in Poland, England, and Peru. I have also been teaching online since 2017.
I graduated in Travel and Tourism Management with First Class Honours Degree at the University of Derby in the UK.
In my free time, I travel, take pictures, read books and study Spanish
My classes are usually based on practice through speaking with the emphasis on vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar. In essence, I always focus solely on students needs and because of this, during my lessons I incorporate many visual materials such as pdf, flashcards, text, images, etc. I strive to reduce my speaking time so the student can speak a target language as much as possible. During my first meeting with the new pupil, I always try to evaluate a student's level of a target language by asking many questions. However, I also ask the student about his/her aims and objectives so I could design my class accordingly. That is why I strive to make an objective for each class so we both know (pupil and me) what are we going to practice during the lesson. I like sending homework to my students (if they are willing to undertake one) and during the next meeting, I tend to use warm-up, revision, and an introduction of new material. Nevertheless, depending on the level of language of the student, my classes can have a completely different form (pure conversation, grammar explanation, vocabulary practice, reading, etc.)
