I began teaching in 2008 and have taught EFL and EAP in Poland, UK, Spain and China. Besides holding a BA in English Philology, I also am a Master of Dutch Philology and have experience teaching Dutch as a Foreign Language (NT2).  Having moved to China in 2018, I also developed my translation and interpreting career (working with English, Dutch and Polish), and then joined CELE in 2023. Apart from teaching, I like spending time with my family and in nature, reading, meditating and doing yoga.
