About me

Dear Students,

The free trial option is available again:) I look forward to hearing from you:)

I live in Berlin, I work as a freelance Polish, German and English tutor. Teaching is my full time job, not some additional activity to earn extra money.

I have 8 years' experience in teaching.

As I lived in Spain for a while, I also understand a lot of Spanish, however, I cannot speak it fluently. Still, it is useful while teaching Spanish speaking learners.

I finished my Master degree, Applied Linguistics of English and German with teaching and translating-interpreting specialisation in June 2011.

I have postgraduate degree in Teaching Polish as a Foreign Language, so I'm a qualified teacher of Polish as well:)

If you would like to know anything else about me, don't hesitate to ask:)

Teaching Approach

Basically, there are as many teaching approaches as there are students:) It all depends on your needs and goals. But generally speaking, I'm a supporter of communicative approach, which is said to be quite difficult to implement when it comes to a Polish and German languages, but I believe that after all, the communication, being able to understand each other is the most important, not only when it comes to foreign languages:)

Of course, in order to make our communication better, we need to learn some grammar:) To give the proper structure to the classes we usually would follow a course book that fits the student's level, age and speed of learning.

Naturally, if you wish to focus on conversation only, we don't need the course book. Still, we would need some input, podcasts and articles come in handy here.

Ewa is professional, open-minded and a very pleasant person to talk to. She understood my needs quickly and asked about my interests to prepare individualized exercises for the next lesson. Thank you for this first lesson, Ewa!
