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 gradu...

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

Dominika zeroed in very quickly as to what level my comprehension of the Polish language was. She is extremely knowledgeable, and has a very amiable personality. I found her to be extremely flexible regarding her teaching method. I wholeheartedly recommend Dominika.

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.

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

Dominika is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a tutor. I have been receiving Polish lessons from her for a few months now, and it has been a thoroughly enjoyable educational experience. I highly recommend her. Not only is she well-versed in her subject matter, but I genuinely find her tutoring sessions to be a pleasant and satisfying endeavor which I look forward to each week. If you are looking to learn a subject matter that falls under her area of expertise, and maybe even have a little fun while you learn, do yourself a favor, and choose to have your lessons with Dominika.

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.

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.
