Cześć! My name is Grzesiek and I am from Poland. Currently, I live in Peru where I work as an English teacher in a language institute.
Regarding languages, I speak Polish, English, and Spanish. Essentially, I was an expat in the UK for the last 10 years and during that time I have been studying and working for various companies mostly in a customer service environment.
I love learning foreign languages but I equally like teaching them as well. Hence, in my case, as I am Polish native Speaker I can help any foreign student to learn this beautiful language in an effective and enjoyable way.
In relation to my educational background, I am a professional TESOL certified English teacher. Besides, I have been teaching English and Polish for more than 4 years. I have been teaching online since 2016, moreover, I'm currently working as an English teacher for a language institute in Peru. I have taught teenagers as well as adults.
Additionally, I graduated in Travel and Tourism Management with First Class Honours Degree at the University of Derby in the UK. Equally important, I have experience teaching Polish and English by giving private lessons in England.
My classes are usually based on practice through speaking with the emphasis on grammar. In essence, I always focus solely on students needs and because of this, during my lessons I incorporate elements like pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, colloquial expressions and much more. In my view, the best way to learn a language is through speaking about interesting topics for the student. In fact, I use a wide spectrum of Internet-based tools which should be implemented in order to increase the efficiency of the learning process in a significant way.
For English students: We will work mainly with two books: "English Grammar in Use" by Raymond Murphy and "English Vocabulary in Use" by Michael McCarthy & Felicity O'Dell.
