Polish

I am bilingual and bicultural in Polish and English. Polish was my first language; I spoke it exclusively until I started kindergarten. In my home, my parents insisted on their children speaking only Polish and that we take Polish lessons. Most of my extended family have come over from Poland (even recently); over the years various of these family members lived in our home for months at a time, giving me ample opportunities to hear and speak Polish with them. All my parents' friends and their children spoke Polish at our frequent social gatherings. I have traveled twice to Poland on extended visits giving me further opportunities to maintain fluency and broaden my cultural knowledge. I read and write Polish, and I have maintained this language to the point that I have been accepted and employed on numerous occasions over the last 8 years as an interpreter for courts, medical appointments and the like. This is work that I still do. My early experience with my first two languages led to my studies of first Latin and then Spanish at the college level. I became a language teacher, a fulfilling profession from which I have recently retired.

Spanish

I have enjoyed a career as a middle- and high-school Spanish teacher. Since my retirement I have served as a professional interpreter for Spanish and Polish (my first language), and I have tutored both adults and young people in English, Spanish and Polish. I am familiar with the curriculum materials used by schools both in the standard programs as well as the International Baccalaureate program. As I myself had to learn English in a hurry when I started school, I have an extra insight into what goes into picking up another language. My experience also includes teaching Study Skills

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
