Expressis Verbis - Language Training in your Office
Owner, Language Trainer, Teacher Trainer
As a graduate of the Pedagogical University of Kraków, with an MA in English Philology, I am confident that I can provide you with a variety of opportunities to successfully build your language skills and facilitate your professional success.
I am a Grade A, CELTA-certified instructor with over eight years of experience teaching English in three different countries: the United Kingdom, Russia, and Poland.
In Russia, I worked for two years at International House – the biggest and most successful school in Moscow. During my time there, I gained extensive experience with various age groups, levels, and courses. I prepared students for Cambridge exams, taught Super Intensive courses, Business English and more.
When I came to the UK in 2014, I started working for Milton Keynes College. My experience from Russia proved extremely useful, as I had to create my own course curricula for each group of learners – which involved careful consideration of students from various social and educational backgrounds. Consequently, differentiation was an essential part of my teaching process. I learned to focus on individuals and their needs in greater detail. My individual approach and methods were much appreciated by my seniors, and I received OFSTED grade 1 (outstanding) for both my Observation slots.
I’ve had a Youtube channel for more than seven years where I’ve taught English (idioms, pronunciation, Matura exam strategies) and vlogged. I have more than 11k subscribers and am known as “Broszka”.
In August 2017 I got involved with Oxford Online English and started recording educational videos for them.
It is also important to mention that, in my formative years, I lived in Montreal, Canada and attended Canadian schools. I acquired English naturally (like an English native speaker), and when my family returned to Poland I continued to nurture it. Consequently, after more than 25 years of using the English language and teaching it for more than 8 years, I can say that I am a bilingual Polish-English speaker.
Now back in Kraków and Gliwice and ready to help you!
For the last two years I've been actively training teachers as well.
I've conducted workshops in various cities in Poland.
Anatomy and Physiology Instructor and Laboratory Supervisor,
Grand Valley State University, Allendale, Michigan, USA
Having nearly twenty-five years experience in the art of teaching and science education, I come to Expressis Verbis with a wealth of educational and pedagogical expertise at both the secondary and post-secondary levels.
The majority of my teaching and laboratory experience is in the biomedical sciences field, where I have taught thousands of university students who are pursuing degrees in nursing, radiologic and imaging sciences, speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, exercise science, and athletic training.
This experience, along with over ten years combined experience in hospital, veterinary, and anatomy and physiology teaching laboratories, have made me a well-rounded instructor who has a passion for the health sciences and a strong desire to empower learners through the use of many learning modalities.
It is my pleasure to have been asked by Kasia to join her team as an instructor of English for Medicine courses. I look forward to facilitating your English mastery of medical terminology and guiding you in accomplishing your personal and professional goals.

Kasia is the best teacher I've ever known. She presents great attitude and individual approach. She is able to prepare lessons for everyone and for every single topic, furthermore, Kasia has wide range of materials which are very helpful for students. Without any doubts, lessons with her are always fruitful. // Kasia jest najlepszym nauczycielem języka jakiego miałem okazje poznać. Kocha to co robi i kieruje się indywidualnym podejściem do każdego ucznia. Jest w stanie przygotować lekcje dla każdego i na każdy temat. Kasia posiada ogromną ilość materiałów, które są bardzo pomocne i dają bardzo dobre rezultaty w nauczaniu. Bez cienia wątpliwości mogę stwierdzić, że każda lekcja z nią jest owocna.

"I like that all of Kasia's lessons are in Powerpoint. It is very visual and helps before any tests because Kasia always sends us the materials. Whenever we asks for more practice Kasia sends us additional grammar exercises. And is able to think on her feet (an idiom i learned!) - we ask a lot of difficult questions. 🙂 "
"The lectures were fantastic, everything was explained in full and often in multiple ways. The online assignments helped a lot, too. The powerpoints were great, and probably helped the most when preparing for the lecture exams. Having all the information outlined with important vocabulary words bolded made it very easy to go back and review the notes."
"Professor Kozal has been the best professor I've had throughout all 3 semesters at GV. It is clear he really cares about his students and wants you to do well. He makes it clear what you need to do to succeed and how to do it. He even provided the class with games to do outside of class to further stimulate our learning. Professor Kozal is an amazing teacher and a person and Im so happy I was able to have him as a prof!"
"Yes I believe this class was intellectually stimulating. I took anatomy in high school and Professor Kozal took it one step farther and pushed us to learn the little details and it was challenging at times."
"+ we learn useful expressions (idioms etc) + I like the time for listening + engineering vocabulary + the best atmosphere during classes ever"
"I like the informal talk, and various interesting facts about language. I love the "fun" take on teaching, I have enough formal talk in my job + On every lesson i learn something. The lessons helped me speak more fluently. Not all topics are equally interesting ... but, hey, we chose those as a group. Satisfaction level: 6"
" Lessons are always well prepared. Kasia catches our errors and corrects them. The lessons help me improve my everyday English. Kasia is an amazing teacher!!!"
"different methods of learning in use, e.g. copies from the student’s workbook, Kahoot, Ted Talks class discussions. Next lesson content is always announced / arranged with the group. Kasia is simply the best!"
" I like the combination of the teaching methods and learning materials used during the classes; I think we keep the appropriate balance in terms of speaking, writing, learning new words/idioms, some small grammar revisions etc. I am very pleased with the classes"
