My Profile:

 

Halina Maria Ostankowicz- Bazan 

M.A. Senior Lecturer Wrocław University of Science and Technology - Wybrzeże Wyspiańskiego 27 50-370 Wrocław, Poland.

Retired in 2014.

First, I would like to express my gratefulness to my dear mentor and online friend Dr. Nellie Deutsch for teaching me all the skills which enable me to teach languages with technology.

Thanks to Nellie my lessons are much more efficient and at the same time successful.

As a retired busy language teacher, I feel very appreciated by my students.

Nowadays, I am highly motivated, energetic as well as a creative language teacher.

I am an enthusiastic online non-native English teacher. I have been teaching English online since 2010. I have taught children as well as adults. I have a master’s degree in education from the University of Wroclaw, Poland, Philology, Linguistics Jul 1974.

After 40 years of teaching in traditional classroom settings, I grow into an experienced online professional tutor. I specialize in Conversational English. I also prepare, for various tests, including the Cambridge and Oxford standardized exams. I take advantage of new technologies. My approach is Teaching English with Technology. I use blended learning, flipping the classroom, learning by teaching or encouraging change from passive to fully active learners are significant implements in my teaching/ learning. I teach English as a foreign language. I also conduct lectures in English on Polish History and Culture for students from all over the world. I spent almost ten years in the USA and became an American Citizen in 2000. I have been participating in online teacher's training courses since 2010. I am striving to involve students in all kinds of activities like connecting and exchanging information. I find Virtual Classes tremendously exciting and challenging. As a Non- Native English online teacher I am available for private lessons on Skype or in my virtual classroom.

I have 25 years of experience teaching private English lessons to adults and adolescents from beginning level to advanced. My students have included business executives, professors, medical doctors, engineers, university students, primary and secondary school students, and adults learning English for daily life. I know I can help make significant, fast as well as adequate progress in English.
