English is my second language and therefore I can fully relate to students seeking to improve their ESL skills. I have Master's in Linguistics from California State University Long Beach with the emphasis on second language reading and writing. I underwent a vigorous, hands-on four-semester training on teaching English to foreign students, and I served as an ESL tutor at the Learning Center at California State University Long Beach for two semesters. I have an access to the newest teaching materials and methods. My focus is on communication and providing students with tools that will enable them to improve their language skills according to their individual needs.
I am a native speaker of Polish with the degree in Polish Language and Literature from Warsaw University with Poland with teaching specialization. I taught Polish for 5 years to high school students. I am familiar and have access to the newest teaching methods and I will tailor the sessions to specific needs of students to ensure that they will grasp the language fast.
