I am a dynamic, energetic, and open-minded native speaker of English from Australia with over 10 years experience in teaching at prestigious language schools in Poland. I came to Poland for the first time in July 1993 after spending almost 2 years working, studying, and traveling in USA on a student exchange program. I lived in Warsaw, Poland for almost 2 years and then went back to Australia for 4 years before coming back to Poland again in 2000.
I offer interesting lessons with focus on customizing the lesson to your requirements. This can be anything from a structured lesson using some of the large selection of teaching materials I possess to a less structured lesson with focus on improving conversational skills. Lessons may include a wide range of topics of General English & Business English and are given in a comfortable environment. I offer lessons at your home, my home, your company office, or any other location agreed upon such as café, park, etc. I also offer the ability to have lessons via Skype.
I live in the Mokotów district of Warsaw, close to Galeria Mokotów, so can easily commute to areas such as "Mordor", however I do also commute to ALL areas of Warsaw.

I am an avid Vespa scooter owner and rider. I ride my Vespa for recreational purposes (trips around Poland and to other European countries) as well as to commute to my students for lessons (weather permitting). Riding my Vespa to lessons enables me to get to my students faster and avoid getting stuck in Warsaw traffic jams (during winter months, I commute to my students either by public transport or by car).
Photography. I am an amateur photographer and currently use a Canon EOS 30D with a number of lenses and other equipment.
My English learning tip is… surround yourself with as much English language as possible. By this I mean, spend as much of your free time as possible living in English language. You can read English language newspapers, watch movies in English, listen to podcasts in English on your way to work, and of course take lessons with me. :-)
