Hello! :) I'm originally from Wisconsin in the USA, but I have been living abroad for the last five years between Turkey and Poland. I was previously working in Wroclaw for the last two years, but I've just moved to Krakow and would love to take on new students who are eager to practice and improve their English. I will be here in Krakow for at least two years which will allow me to develop a meaningful relationship with my students and to help them grow and succeed in their long-term goals.
I have a Bachelor's degree in English with a Professional Writing emphasis. I also have a TEFL certification and have been teaching English as a Foreign language, both privately and in language centers, since 2013. In addition, I am experienced in teaching ESL in the USA prior to my time abroad, as well as experience working with youth in social services.
I enjoy working with all ages and levels. I currently teach business professionals, yet I've taught many young students from elementary to high school, and even their parents and families. I regularly keep in touch with all of my former students in Wroclaw as I take the teacher-student relationship to heart. I want all of my students to feel comfortable and to create a personal and unique atmosphere for everyone.
I'm a very optimistic and happy person, and I know this really helps make my lessons enjoyable and fun. I create individual lesson plans based on your needs and wants. From conversational practice and discussing cultural differences, to preparing for business trips, leading presentations, writing reports and emails, and even helping to better understand grammar and helping with homework, I can help you in all your goals with the English language.
I am living in the Prokocim area in Krakow, but I am used to traveling far for my students in the past. I do not mind traveling to meet you in the city center or elsewhere. I can come to your house or we can meet in a public place (such as a cafe, bar, mall), or even while partaking in outdoor activities.
I hope we can work together to help you improve your comfort, knowledge, and use of the English language. :)
