Ich spreche Deutsch, hablo español, mówię po polsku and I speak English :)
I come from Silesia, a culturally rich region in southern Poland that used to belong to Germany. I grew up in a German-speaking culture, and also studied and worked for several years in Germany and Austria. I also lived in Spain where I discovered a passion for the Spanish language. I work in IT on a daily basis and in my free time I meet friends from all over the world, dance, learn French and travel. I enjoy listening and learning about other people's stories, especially from different parts of the world, so I'm already looking forward to meeting you :)
Me as a Teacher
I know what problems a person who wants to learn a foreign language faces. I myself went through German grammar, learned Spanish on my own and studied in English. Today I work in the IT industry, where I use English and German in business, and speak Spanish in my private life on a daily basis.
I enjoy helping people learn a foreign language, because I know myself what difficulties it involves and how best to approach learning a foreign language. I have already worked with children and adults preparing for English exams, foreigners who wanted to pass the Polish state exam, and foreigners from countries such as Tunisia, Canada or Colombia who wanted to learn German for professional purposes.
My lessons & teaching style
I tailor the pace and scope of learning to the student. Whether it's a grammatical issue, a desire to improve pronunciation and accent, or a need for casual conversation to get used to the language. It is the student who dictates the need, and I try to adapt the material as well as the teaching method to the person. Everyone approaches learning in a different way or wants to achieve different results, so each lesson will be determined individually and according to the student's need.

One of my best classes ever! Katarzyna was very very friendly and easygoing! She has all the patience in the world, which I appreciate very much!! This is my 3rd Polish class in italki and Katarzyna was very flexible when I asked her to help me with the pronunciation of the alphabet. Her background in Spanish was very helpful for me and she made a lot of the most challenging sounds in Polish much easier with explanations in Spanish. I will definitely book more classes with her!! Thank you Katarzyna!!! Class was amazing!!!
