ENGLISH TEACHER


I have taught mainly late teenage and young adult groups at private English schools and universities: International House Cracow, Tischner European University, AFM Cracow University, Gama-Bell School of English, Jagiellonian University Collegium Medicum, Studio Language Academy and Asesoría Canales in Valencia, Spain.

The courses covered general or specialized English, and some culminated in the FCE or CAE exam. Specialized courses were tailored to the needs of university students, and included such areas as business, accounting, psychology, medicine and public health.
