My name is Alan and I come from Dublin, which is the capital city of Ireland. I have been teaching English as a foreign language for five years and have experience with all ages and levels of ability. For me, teaching English was a way to see the world. I have previously taught English in Spain, Italy and The Czech Republic. However my favourite country is Poland, which is why after teaching here in 2016/17 I decided to return and spend more time in this fascinating and complex country. The biggest challenge for me here has been learning the Polish language, but this experience has helped me to better understand the difficulty my students have learning English, so I try to be patient and to create a positive learning environment for everyone. Learning a language is a marathon not a sprint, it takes time and lots of practice. My guarantee is that I will match the motivation of my students with unique, interactive and carefully prepared lessons for their needs.
