Halina's English Online Academy. My approach is Teaching English with Technology. I use blended learning, flipping the classroom, learning by teaching or encouraging

Methodology

I take advantage of new technologies.
Teaching with technology.I use blended learning, flipping the classroom, learning by teaching or encouraging change from passive to fully active learners are significant implements in my teaching/ learning.
The atmosphere of my lessons is relaxed, comfortable, and professional. You will do at least 70% of the talking. You’ll gain confidence from our experiences, and this will encourage you to practice your English in public without fear.

Most lessons will include the following components:

# “Small talk:” A social conversation about, for example, your recent weekend activities.
# Review of our previous lesson.
# Pronunciation exercise: Reading aloud a short text.
# Primary activity: We'll use text, video, or audio sample as a start to learning the new material and reinforce the old.
# Review today's lesson and plan for next class.
I hope I’ve shared enough information to help you decide if we might be a good match. If you have any questions before you make your decision, please send me a message.

Responsibilities & Achievements
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 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.
I run English Conversational classes and English for Life courses. I participate in Teachers for Teachers online conferences give presentations as well as offer courses for English Teachers Online.

Senior Lecturer at Wroclaw University of Technology, Foreign Languages Department and Department of Polish for Foreigners, since 1976.
10/1976 - 10/2014
Responsibilities & Achievements
I have been teaching Polish as a foreign language and English, since 1976.
M.A. Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan also gives lectures in English on Polish History and Culture for students from all over the world. I have been looking for some inspiration and learning how to teach using new technologies, since 2010. WizIQ fascinated me since I found the Platform.
In addition to this, I am hugely interested in Cultural Diversity. Furthermore, I believe that teaching language using songs is a compelling and enjoyable way of improving communication skills. My educational approach recommends singing a language, meaning that we don’t speak the language, but we sing it.
I am a long-life learner, who has been working on improving teaching/learning skills for a very long time.
Furthermore, I am for blended learning as well as flipping classroom techniques. I also find Virtual Classes tremendously exciting and challenging, as they make attendees feel like having a real meeting and discussion. In my view, visual quality and non-verbal communication tools, 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 excellent chance to connect for teaching and learning. An occasion to meet and connect with people from the entire Globe is one of the reasons I appreciate online communication, very much.
I retired in October 2013 and signed for a freelance Senior Lecturer occupation at the Wroclaw University of Technology.

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.
