I'm from London. I used to work as a police officer for the Metropolitan Police for several years before coming to Poland in 2008 to experience life in my wife's country. I gained a CELTA qualification before coming and then worked as an English teacher for 2 years. We returned to London in 2010 and I completed a PGCE course - becoming a fully qualified teacher. During this course I gained experience in teaching secondary school students in the UK. Due to changes in our life circumstances we returned to Poland and are now happily settled here. I now specialise in teaching Academic English to those who intend on studying at university in English. I have just finished a seven week course preparing students for their future studies at the University of Reading in England.

I love to travel, with Italy being my passion. However, I have also been on a round-the-world trip which was my dream come true. I'm a sociable, approachable person with a sense of humour, happy to have discussions on a wide range of topics from sports through to business, current affairs, politics, casual chit-chat or anything you like.
