Language Learning Coaching

I have 15 years of demonstrable experience teaching English as a foreign language, having taught in four different countries to clients including people with migrant background, students aiming at language certification (IELTS, TOEFL) or entrepreneurs.

Currently, I focus on tutoring motivated employees of small and medium business with an existing language level B1/B2 whose ambition is to progress to the next level and be able to represent their company with confidence in the foreign language.

My one-to-one sessions are based on the direct method which means that we focus on actively using the foreign language in practice, eliminating foreign language anxiety and converting passive vocabulary into an active one.

Every session is dynamic and tailor-made to the needs of my clients. When selecting learning content, I also focus on their areas of interest and their “bad habits” in the foreign language which we eliminate step-by-step. I make sure they learn as much as possible during the session, all the while making them aware that “lessons” are not enough and teaching them methods to integrate language learning into their everyday life.

If it sounds like this is what you need to stop stagnating in your learning process and make a progress, contact me to find out more about my offer.

What clients say


Work with me


I need an interpreter. What should I do?

If you need interpreting services, make sure to provide as much information as possible: venue, date and duration of the event, topic/area, participants and target audience, agenda.

How much does interpreting cost?

Interpreters charge either for a full day (8 hours including breaks) or a half-day (4 hours). Price calculation by the hour is not a common practice, as interpreting also includes research and preparation, travel, technical checks and/or consulting.

How can I make the interpreter’s job easier?

To help the interpreter achieve high quality of interpreting services, make sure to provide them with all relevant background materials such as meeting agendas, presentations, training content or participant lists. All those help the interpreter prepare in terms of topics and terminology.

I need a translator. What should I do?

Send me the document you need to have translated per e-mail or, if urgent, contact me by phone first. Do not forget to specify the deadline, target language required, the purpose of the translation and target audience.

What file format should I provide?

Ideally, the document should be provided in an editable format which makes it easier and faster to work with. Another option is to send me a scan of the file in a sufficiently high resolution.

How can I make the translator’s job easier?

The more information you provide, the faster you will receive your translation. Availability of similar texts, additional information or terminology resources is very useful in the translation process. Such reference texts are of particular importance for cohesion of terminology in translation.

How much does translation cost?

Generally, the cost of translation services is calculated based on the number of words in the source text. One standard page contains 250 words. Therefore, a single page of text rarely equals one standard page for translation. You can easily check the number of standard pages of your document in word processing programs such as Microsoft Word.

How do I get a better price?

Computer-assisted translation is a standard in language services provision. These software tools simplify the translation process by saving translations of individual segments into a translation memory and, in case of repetition, automatically providing the translator with the corresponding equivalent in the target language.

Thanks to this method I can offer a better price of translation services compared to translation without software tools. It also means that in case of regular cooperation and larger volumes of text, you can decrease the overall costs of translation services in the long term.
