    Teaching Approach

    Effective and fun Polish or German language classes with an experienced university professor.
    I have more than a decade of experience in teaching different students with different needs, developing courses in person and online, training teachers, giving presentations , and doing research on language learning.

    I offer individual or group classes with a specific program designed according to your needs, interests, and style of learning. And if you are not sure what is your style of learning a language, I will help you figure it out.

    In person, online, or combined (hybrid) with video lessons; in a more traditional or very informal way.

    Highly focused on the results - you tell me what you need and I will make sure you get there as soon as possible.

    Program Description

    I offer classes online, in person, or hybrid, highly individualize d towards your needs.

    Onl ine classes take place through a web conferencing tools like Skype, Google Hangouts, etc. and using virtual classroom platform (based on needs).

    Cl asses in person take place at my home office in Forest Park, IL (60130) or at UIC. Unfortunately , I am not able to travel to the student. Exceptions may be made in case of group classes, though.

    I offer the majority of materials with no additional costs. They may involve:
    - formal materials like textbook exercises or lessons, professional video lectures (mostly recorded by me), educational audio resources, etc.
    - informal materials like songs, videos, movies, audiobooks, and other audio materials, books, with different exercises, etc.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: When contacting you, what information should I provide?
    A: Ideally, fill out the following:
    T ype of classes needed: ....
    Mode of delivery (online, in person, hybrid): ....
    When/ how often: ....
    Learnin g goals/reasons : ....
    For whom (student's background in the language, learning style, etc.): ...
    Anything else I should know: ....

    Alter natively, tell me anything you can so I can establish right from the first contact, if I am able to help you.

    Q: What is your availability for classes?
    A: My schedule is rather flexible, I can also accommodate for different time zones. Contact me with your preferences and I will see what I can do. Online classes are generally easier to schedule than classes in person.

    Q: I want to learn with you but I cannot afford your prices, do I have any options?
    A: Yes! Ideally, find someone else who wants to learn with you. Small group classes are the best way of learning a language anyway. Even if you are not on the same level I can design a program that will be beneficial for both (or more) of you.

    Q: What are your payment policies?
    A: I accept payments in cash, check, via PayPal, Chase quick pay or whatever we agree to.
    All classes must be paid in advance (24 hours). Unfortunately , I am not able to deliver a class without receiving the payment first.
    Classes can be paid on a class by class basis but if we agree to a concrete program that I will need to design for you, I will ask you for a bulk payment for the program (like with college classes).
    I am able to offer some discounts for bulk payments as well.

    Q: What is your cancellation policy?
    A: If you are not able to make the scheduled appointment, I must know at least 24 hours before the class. There will be no charge with a 24hr notice. Any cancellation less than 24 hours before the class will result in a full charge.
