About me: 

I'm originally from New York State but moved to Poland about 15 years ago. Between the two I lived in California and Oregon. I came to Europe to gain new experience, travel around, get adventurous, and look into new professional opportunities.

Education, Qualifications, Experience: 

I am an English teacher with 15 years’ experience, all of it here in Poland. I have developed in-depth knowledge and expertise in a range of areas including pronunciation, grammar, writing, and English for academic purposes. I do lessons of all varieties, including conversation, vocabulary boosting, and exam preparation. Lessons are aimed particularly at those who are serious about learning and willing to make a commitment to work hard and come to lessons.

I did a bachelor's degree in American and British Literature and Master's coursework at Humboldt State University and the University of Oregon. I also have a CELTA certificate.

My school

I run the Ochota English Pages, a small, native speaker-only school and editorial & translation services. Located a stone’s throw from park Szczesliwicki, the stamping ground of happy souls, the school’s address is Wlodarzewska 68/4. I offer individual lessons all day long, and small group lessons in the evenings. 

The school offers

General English for all levels, from absolute beginner to post proficiency. This includes grammar and lexical work as appropriate.

exam preparation (fce, cae, cpe, ielts, toefl, matura)

pronunciation-focused lessons

academic and business writing courses

conversation classes

experimental courses using literature and mass media for current events

lessons based on stories, particularly fiction

Editorial & Translation Services

I currently work with editors and professors from Warsaw University, SGGW and the University of Economics in Krakow publishing houses, where I am the lead English language editor. I also translate (Polish to English) academic articles for SGGW in Warsaw and press-bound materials for Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK), where I work as an English language editor, proofreader and writer. I am currently taking on new translation and editing projects and am always looking to strike up new professional relationships with clients and collaborators in publishing and translation.

Interests, Hobbies, & Other Info: 

I enjoy a wide range of leisure and not-so-leisure activities, including x-country skiing, walking in the woods, reading books, spending time with friends, and meeting people of every stripe. I travel when I can.
