Linguistic Atelier - the Art of English
I'm keen on English teaching methodology. I create lesson plans and exercises which streamline the teaching / learning process. I also have an aptitude for motivating my students to work harder.
I finished English philology, but at first I graduated from finance and banking at Warsaw School of Economics. Combining the two education paths and my work experience in international companies and state offices, I run courses in business and financial English. I assist people in developing their skills of giving presentations, conducting official talks, and the so called small talks, without which we are not able to handle anything.
Additionally, I run a small, very reliable and single-project-focused translation agency, which specializes in translating texts from the widely understood field of business (including law and finance).
I do not want my services to become a mass product that is why they are always customized and of the highest quality.
Enjoy exploring my website and become my customer!
