Feel like you are talking to a friend!
italki teacher since Jan 8, 2022
👩🎓 I am a student of English philology
↪️ so I know the stress of communicating with others in a foreign language.
Apart from the fact that we are stressed, we also have a language barrier. I know it and go through it myself.
I am an open-minded person and I will do my best to create a nice atmosphere in our lessons!
I love reading books 📚 - my favourite writer is Jo Nesbø but I like self improvement books as well. I love to travel ✈️ and the most beautiful place I've seen so far is definitely Montenegro! I love dogs and I enjoy spending time with my labrador Blackie!
🌍 I also love getting to know my students and their culture!
Me as a Teacher
✨ we focus on things that are necessary to start speaking as soon as possible
✨ we work on materials that I prepare myself (presentations, quizzes, interactive materials, flashcards) and that are tailored to your skills and needs
✨ we do revisions every class
✨ you have your own Google Document to which I add new vocabulary from the class, materials and homework (if you want) after each class
💖As already at the age of 6 I was pretending to be a teacher and teaching an invisible class, classes with you on Italki are pure pleasure for me. I feel fulfilled here and I appreciate every student who wants to learn with me. I am grateful that my childhood dream has come true and for each of you.
My lessons & teaching style
📋 LESSON PLAN 📋
1) Warm-up ✅
We spend 5-10 minutes on a short conversation, we play Taboo or some other interactive exercise.
Warm-up activity helps us get you in a learning frame of mind.
2) Revision ✅
As revision, we do various tasks- quizzes, matching definitions, explaining words, completing sentences.
Sometimes, instead of warm-up activity, we only do a revision if it requires more time.
3) Topic of the class ✅
📌 grammar- I usually show you a presentation first, we talk about the theory, then we do exercises + we have conversation using this topic
📌 conversation - to expand your vocabulary, the classes consist of discussion on a chosen topic, everyday conversation etc.

I haven't had many lessons with Pauline yet, but I am already so happy that I chose her und would 100% recommend her to anyone trying to learn Polish! She is not only extremely empathetic and kind but also puts a lot of effort into her teaching and material. She adjusts to my individual wishes, learning speed and helps with all my questions along the way. When I make a mistake she only encourages me to try again in the nicest way, so I never feel judged or stupid for struggling. It makes a lot of fun and I look forward to every lesson. So for anyone searching, Pauline is definitely the best choice as a Polish teacher:)

The class with Paulina was absolutely amazing! I seriously can't recommend booking a conversation lesson with her enough. Paulina is a very engaging and enthusiastic teacher, and it is obvious she is very passionate about helping people learn the wonderful Polish language. She asked really interesting questions that got me talking on a number of topics. The atmosphere was easygoing and very positive, which helped me better express myself. I also enjoyed hearing her insights into her own experience teaching and learning languages. I would love to improve my level of Polish while working with such an enthusiastic teacher, so I will definitely be booking more lessons with Paulina!
