Recent graduate from Medical University of Warsaw. A decision to pursue career in medicine sprang from keen interest in chemistry, biology and physics. Since my early teens I have devoured tons of books on these fields.
I have been teaching chemistry for several years already, gaining vast experience in tutoring. It has always been for me an inexhaustible source of joy and fulfillment.
I like looking at the problems and phenomena from various angles, delving into the root cause of every process.
In my classes I bring enthusiasm, engagement and constant striving for progress.
I spend my free time visiting European cities and doing all kinds of sports.
MichałEnglish Language Teacher
Having completed my postgraduate studies at the University of Warsaw with an MA in English Studies (specialising in Phonetics and Phonology), I gained some decent teaching qualifications (CELTA) and went on to pursue a career in teaching English to speakers of other languages. Since that time I have been an active teacher.
At the ILSP I run the IELTS preparation classes. When teaching, I always tailor the lessons to suit the specific needs of my students and try to foster an atmosphere of mutual respect.
My private interests include, to name just a few, reading novels and non-fiction books alike, as well as learning foreign languages, especially Spanish and Chinese. I am passionate about various forms of outdoor activities such as long-distance hiking and sailing.
MaksimLecturer of Polish as a Foreign Language
So… you still teach? – the former professor of mine asked me with a look of surprise on her face.
Such was a reaction of the professor with whom I met years after I graduated from Slavonic Department in Minsk, Belarus. Soon after, we were sitting next to each other to record a CD to a Polish book for foreigners. It was a great experience for a teacher of Polish as a Foreign Language.
I have been teaching Polish as a Foreign Language since year 2000 and I still find it fascinating. It is because of people from whom I have had a chance to learn, here I mean both professionals and my own students.
In my work I try to be an educator from whom students want to learn. As I believe that you cannot teach somebody without student’s understanding his own potential.
After many years of teaching I realized that non-native speaker has also much to offer to students as far as his own learning experience. Not to mention stereotypes and culture differences, which he once had to face.
Recently here in Warsaw, I had a pleasure to meet a former students of mine from Belarus, who informed me – with a smile on her face – that she moved to Poland. She has a good job here, also she told me that she started studying at university. She told me that I am to ‘blame’ for that. I realized that these are the moment of real happiness for a teacher of Polish as a Foreign Language.
