English For Life. I have 25 years of experience teaching private English lessons to adults and adolescents from beginning level to advanced. My students have included business executives, professors,

Methodology

I teach with the use of new technologies
My goal is to improve your English-speaking confidence while also helping you learn new words and improve your spoken grammar. Each class is personal, and each class is very dynamic, I have a great ability to adapt precisely to your speaking and general language needs. I talk about many conversational topics that are familiar to our lives.
Students enjoy their classes with me, and I am sure that you will too. From my experience, I am entirely confident that with continued practice with me that you as a student will improve your English language skills quickly. I also offer high pronunciation activities that help each Student strengthen their intonation, accent and their word stress pattern. Most importantly, my classes are enjoyable and very encouraging.

Experience

I teach English as a foreign language. I also conduct lectures in English on Polish History and Culture for students from all over the world. I spent almost ten years in the USA and became an American Citizen in 2000. I have been participating in online teacher's training courses since 2010. I take advantage of new technologies. Using blended learning, flipping the classroom, learning by teaching or encouraging change
from passive to fully active students are a few of significant implements in practice. I am striving to involve students in all kinds of activities like connecting and exchanging information. I find Virtual Classes tremendously exciting and challenging; they make
attendees feel like having real meetings and discussions. Visual and audio tools that can be shared among participants are primarily significant in any classroom environments.

Summary
I am a passionate teacher from Poland. I teach English as a foreign language. I also conduct lectures in
English on Polish History and Culture for students from all over the world. I spent almost ten years in the USA
and became an American Citizen in 2000 I have been participating in online teacher's training courses since
2010. As a passionate English teacher, I take advantage of new technologies. Using blended learning, flipping the classroom, learning by teaching or encouraging change from passive to fully active learners are significant implements in my teaching/ learning. My application is to involve learners in all kinds of activities.
Connecting and exchanging information should be done consciously; students need to be aware of the problems they face. I find Virtual Classes tremendously exciting and challenging; they make attendees feel like having real meetings and discussion. Visual and audio tools that you can share with attendees are
particularly significant. Moreover, an opportunity to communicate online with people from around the world is
an overwhelming experience as well as an incredible vision to connect for teaching and learning.

I am a Ms Halina's private student. I must admit, I have never thought on how much an English tutor can teach you about reality and broaden your mind. Ms Halina is responsible for my significant improvement in English since I came to her for the first time. I think that my English can now only get better, and Ms Halina is the best English teacher I have ever known.
