Eastern Michigan University (Theater and Fine Art)
University of Michigan (Master's)
I am a very enthusiastic and creative person. I work extremely well with teenagers thanks to my theater affiliation with the Pioneer High School Theater in Ann Arbor. I have excellent communication skills and truly enjoy working with people.
I do enjoy helping students to advance either in the language proficiency or the theater arts. It is extremely rewarding process and allows for forming lasting relationships with students.
I am a Polish native who was a student of English at The Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. I moved to Ann Arbor and continued my undergraduate studies at Eastern Michigan University and my graduate studies at University of Michigan. Upon graduation I went back to Poland and worked there for 5 years as an English tutor to Polish students and Polish tutor to English speakers living in Krakow. I am continuing to teach English to Polish students via Skype.
I was a student of English Literature, History and Language at The Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. After coming to Ann Arbor I received the BA in Theater Arts and Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University and MFA in Theater Design form University of Michigan. After finishing my studies I went back to Krakow and worked there as an English tutor to Polish students. Tutoring included conversational English as well as help with essay writing and reading. I am continuing to teach English via Skype.
After coming to Ann Arbor I studied Theater and Fine Arts at Eastern Michigan University and upon receiving the degree I went back to Krakow and worked there designing sets and costumes for local theaters. Upon returning to Ann Arbor I was accepted in the MFA Theater Design program at the University of Michigan. Since then I was working as a freelance designer as well as the set and costume designer for the Pioneer Theater Guild.
I work extremely well with teenagers thanks to my experience as a staff member of the Pioneer High School Theater - I work every day with several students who stay with me for the four years they are in the theater program. I have been teaching theater crafts for the past 10 years.
I would like to meet students eager to learn Polish language and Polish students interested in learning or perfecting their English who would like an assistance from someone who is bilingual. I know from my own personal experience that is very hard to keep up with Polish when you are surrounded 24/7 by English speakers. Maybe you are Polish and have children who speak English every day but you would like them to know some Polish as well? If so feel free to contact me! I am a very enthusiastic and creative person.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with the BA degree in Theater Arts, and of University of Michigan with the MFA degree in Theater Design.
