Bio:

Hello, I am Lena and I am a qualified English teacher. I have been teaching English as a foreign language in Poland for the past 5 years. Having taught students from Asia, Poland, and Ukraine, I have learned that I am a facilitator, the catalyst which activates each student's full potential. Lessons should be sprinkled with fun, dedication, and hard work in equal measure. The methods I use in my work can help you achieve such learning goals as speaking, writing, all comprehension, vocabulary

My teaching methodology:
I use a variety of English teaching methods according to the student’s personality, knowledge level, and experience. Introduction of the English Alphabet and sounds through colorful picture books, songs, and writing techniques. Simple grammatical forms through easy-to-understand, simplified grammar books especially formulated for beginners of English. More advanced grammatical forms and sentence construction through tutorials, assignments and comprehensive textbooks. Allowing free conversation in the class and encouraging the students to speak more in English enable them to be generally fluent in speaking English. Introducing new words, nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions, similar and opposite words through pictures and graphics, and actual objects. Explaining the past tense, present tense and future tenses through enjoyable actions and pictures. Performing interactive games and quizzes in class to enable students to learn English in a more fun filled, enjoyable and relaxing way. Simple dramas and role playing done to encourage students to talk more in English and to build a sense of self-confidence within them to use English when interacting with others. Comprehensive essay writing done through explanation about a variety of modern essay topics to facilitate especially high school and university students. Business English, official letter writing and documentation for business correspondence will be taught for young adults.
My teaching background:

I have been teaching English as a foreign language for the past 5 years. I have the opportunity to teach English to both children ranging from 4 years to senior people as much as 60 years. For junior and senior high schools students and other adults, I train them for general speaking of English, writing, and listening (using various audio tapes). I also prepare them to take international English examinations like TOEIC and TOEFL from which they have excelled wonderfully making me deeply fulfilled as a teacher.

My background outside of teaching:

I usually spend my leisure time reading books or playing badminton. I like reading new and trending novels and my favorite genres include suspense, horror, and thriller novels. Being a voracious reader, I believe that I have a strong vocabulary and knowledge of grammar. My zeal for writing gets its flair from my passion for reading books.”
