English as a second language

Native English Services

Building confidence and developing language abilities - 20010 - current

Over the last 5 yrs my training and focus has been on building confidence within the learner. Building confidence is the first and foremost area students need help in. Once confidence is built you are ‘free to use’ the language you already have and you are ready to learn more. You can’t speak if you have no self-confidence.

Native English Services and Club NES

FREE club for ESL learners in Piła - 20011 - 2014

After discovering the real reason students can’t speak, and then realizing how much money people spend on second languages, I donate some time. Club NES was a 2hr lesson given for free for anyone who wanted to come. It was held at Pilski Dom Kultury, School nr1 and at one of the local community centers. As a club we organized large fundraisers for children with disabilities. 

English Language and the Brain

Language and Brain Awareness - 2006 - 2010

After 2yrs of failed success to teach anyone how to speak English I absorbed myself into why. Having ADHD, previously I studied and work with Biofeedback therapy. Biofeedback is basic exercise for the brain. With this ‘brain knowledge’ I spent these 3 years and 100’s of hours of reading and studying ESL courses and programs coming to the conclusion that if “You Can’t Speak If You Don’t Listen”

An Awakening

Becoming and English teacher - 2004 - 2006

After making the decision to stay in Poland I had to figure out how to make money. I was told, “Teach English”, you’re a native. Little did I know that there was much more to it then just being a native. These first 2 years I taught the Callan method and failed miserably. On the plus side. I was also able to join 4 summer camps and work with the kids. I also made frequent visits to the public schools and visit with the kids. They have to learn a language and they may never get to meet someone who speaks actually speaks it naturally. It was a great experience that led me to become motivated to make a difference. Over the next 9 yrs I’ve developed into who I am today because of these humble beginnings.
