I would like to introduce myself and give a short overview of my effective teaching method that will get you speaking, reading, and writing the language in no time!

Polish is my native language and I had the opportunity to learn German in my childhood years. After graduating from high school, I looked for an inspiration for what to do next and traveled to Europe. I have found myself growing a passion for languages and cultures. Upon returning, I went on to study German for Business and graduated cum laude.
I have over four years experience in tutoring, helping others to learn the languages and maybe even fall in love with it too!

Learning a language is an extraordinary experience for both personal growth as well as potential career enhancement. Whatever the reason is, I want to help you achieve all goals in a fun but effective way. In my lessons, I provide reinforcement as well as various challenging ways that will get you to succeed in your new language!

Great teacher

I've been studying Polish for the last 12 months, and have worked with several tutors in that time. Dominika is the best, by far. First and foremost she maintains structure and purpose throughout the hour. Although she is bright, friendly and personable, the lessons never descend into chit chat unrelated to the goal of learning. As a speaker, she has a clear and relaxed cadence, using concise vocabulary that is direct and easy to understand. Secondly, she uses the Wyzant format very effectively, utilizing links, and multiple pages throughout the lesson, and sends them as documents afterwards to keep for review. Thirdly, her actual teaching style is very straightforward, but effective. We have a basis for discussion, be it perhaps a poem, a short story or he lyrics to a song. I read through it, then translate, and we go over what I did and didn't understand. Afterwards, she asks me basic questions about certain words I read, either directly asking me what a specific word means from memory, or asking me to use that word in a sentence or describe its meaning in polish. It doesn't seem like much but it is highly effective for retention. In short, she's a pro. I feel very lucky to have hired her.

First lesson, seems as if determining his understanding of the German language. I believe will provide success as we move forward. Looking forward to the next lesson

Great Lesson!

I really enjoyed my lesson! Everything was perfect and I feel that I have already progressed even after one lesson.

Kate, 10 lessons with Dominika

VERY knowledgable , has GREAT Teaching-Style

Dominika was engaging with her "student" ---my 96 yr old mother-- an attribute considering the multi-generation gap between them. The lesson purpose was to provide Polish conversation for my mother to allow her to practice/improve her Polish-skills. Dominika kept focus and responded in Polish when my mother reverted to English. Over a week later, Mom is, as we are, enjoying the ripple effect of the lesson: speaking/teaching/translating (English to Polish) to family members.

Shaped the lesson according to what matters to me

Dominika introduced new grammar rules gradually, along with conversation practice. She shaped the lesson according to what matters to me when learning a foreign language.
