Hi, Teaching English as a Second Language is my passion as well as my area of expertise. The way I interact with a student involves using all kinds of technologies, but first of all I make it personalized and address her/his needs and personal preference. So let me know what suits you from the get-go, or I will explore and find out for myself even if you can't pinpoint it. I hope to talk to you soon. Prof. G.
Grammar,

Grammar

Hello, It so happens that grammar is my absolute favorite because I easily explain it without overwhelming my students. I always teach it clearly and with a lot of pleasure coming from the fact that I understand all the rules, intricacies and nuances. If you let me, I will gladly share with you my superb knowledge in the way that must be both enjoyable and simple. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Prof. G.
Polish,

Polish

I was born and raised in Poland and did not come to the U.S. until I was 25. I speak and write in Polish with my family and friends on a regular basis, and I have taught Polish to English-speaking students. I'm even more fluent in Polish than I am in English, which I teach in college.

Vocabulary

Hello, I primarily teach writing/reading classes, so I know about choice of words and everything else that is involved, including vocabulary expansion. I teach vocabulary in the context, so a student sees how words like to go together in so-called collocations, for example. Practice in synonyms, antonyms, prefixes, suffixes, various word forms, etc. will enhance your writing, reading, and speaking skills. It's all-encompassing. Prof. G.

So Patient and Enthusiastic

Dorota has gone above and beyond my expectations and I genuinely look forward to every lesson with her. I am an extreme beginner in the language and I was concerned that was going to create a huge barrier for my development. Dorota has made me feel great, been so patient and complimentary with me that I am learning at a quicker pace and covering more material. She has been flexible with scheduling and upfront about how the sessions will go. I couldn’t be happier to have found Dorota as my teacher and look forward to many more lessons.

Aww. You shouldn't have. Anyhow, I'll be pushing you hard, so you can count on more of the same.

Fantastic tutor.

Mrs. G. is an excellent tutor. She's very punctual (even when I run a little bit late), she always comes prepared, and she's very patient. She is currently helping me improve my Polish and I'm very pleased so far with the classes that I've had with her. During our lesson she makes me get out of my comfort zone and she makes me speak in Polish as much as possible while avoiding English. She is also big on reviewing information; during our lessons together, we review words and phrases every couple of minutes. Mrs. G. tries to make her lessons as fun and interactive as possible. A couple days ago, we did this exercise in which I had to show her pictures in my cell phone and describe them and answer any questions that she had about them, in Polish. I don't have any complaints yet. Mrs. Dorota G. is a great tutor if you want to learn Polish.
