First of all – Which websites can you trust? At the top of this webpage, you will see this website has a HTTPS address. This tells you that my website is verified as being both authentic and safe. Of course, the real test is whether a company is listed on the CEIDG website. CEIDG provides absolute proof of whether someone has a Polish company and essential information on them (NIP & Nationality etc.) This is important, because it is illegal to accept lessons with anyone that does not have a company. You should always ask for an invoice. My website is also registered with Krajowy Rejestr Sądowy, Rzetelne Firmy, Google, Wikipedia, Yelp and Yellow Pages etc.
Second – What should you look for? It helps to find someone who was brought up and educated in England. It is very hard to beat a Native English Speakers understanding of English. Add to that the experiences and qualifications etc.
Third – Do you want good quality Business English? I grew up in England. I spent 39 years living there. I worked as a fully qualified teacher of Information Technology in English secondary schools for nine years and a further two years at a couple of International Schools in Poland. In August 2011, I moved permanently to Opole and have spent most of my time teaching either English or Business English. Since October 2014, I have been teaching the Business English Certificate at both Vantage and Higher levels to Masters students at a prestigious German University once a week during the academic term. I have taught in-house Business English to directors and in companies throughout Opole. So make sure you hire a complete professional and not someone who gained qualifications by reading books!
Fourth – Location? I live in the centre of Opole near Solaris. I have a car and a computer. So it does not matter where you live – I can teach you at my place, your place or online! Our flat is decorated in an English style and visitors are given a free cup of tea etc. So why not come and get the full English experience!
Fifth – Price? I have my own company – so lessons are invoiced. The price of a lesson depends on many factors such as where the lesson takes place, how many students are in a lesson and the complexity of the teaching/proofreading tasks involved.
