About Me

I am an adventurer and a bookworm so my interest in foreign languages came naturally. I lead an active life as a sailor and climber but I also enjoy spending time at home with books, films and music. My interest in psychology is satisfied in my job as all students are different and demand individual care. All in all, teaching is a perfect combination of working, learning and having fun because it opens up so many opportunities both for teacher and student.

Education

I am currently a PhD student and I specialize in linguistics. I hold B.A. in Business English and M.A. in British and American Culture and Literature as well as a certificate of completion of an intensive translation course.

Experience / Qualifications

I worked at University of Silesia for 4 years teaching students, attending conferences and organizing events. I also held a position of an English Language Coach and Translator for 8 years in several companies.

Reviews (1)

Paul is a professional with a high standaards and a deep understanding for the english language. He makes sure that the lessons are tailored to your needs and that you make progress. He has a comforting way of teaching, since practicing a foreign language can be a bit scary.
Linguistics is fun and useful for students as well as professionals, schoolchildren and anyone who is interested in languages. Linguistics can be a real eye-opener and a hobby for life. The branches of linguistics I teach include: 1. Translation theory. 2. Pragmatics. 3. Dialectology. 4. Morphology. 5. Phonetics. 6. Syntactics/grammar. 7. Psycholinguistics. 8. Historical linguistics. 9. Geographical linguistics. 10. Sociolinguistics.
I specialize in tutoring English for university students and staff working in various industries. I use numerous methods and didactic materials depending on particular students and their goals. You can choose if you would like to speak American or British English.
Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.
