NAME AND SURNAME: Dariusz Napora

PROFESSIONALLY: The Lemon Tree Teacher, Methodologist, Climbing and skiing instructor
MY LESSONS: I love diversity. Whether you are a six-year-old, first-grader struggling wits ABC's or a Department Manager in a global corporation working on formal letter writing skills I will give you a learning experience of a lifetime. Real life, authentic and relevant materials are my key to your success. In my class you'll learn to speak not just in English but to speak English.
IN MY FREE TIME: Bringing up my son (is it free time, actually?), climbing, kitesurfing, skiing, reading a lot...
EDUCATION: The University of Warsaw, University College of English Language Teacher Education
PROFESSIONALLY: The Lemon Tree Teacher, methodologist, youth camp supervisor.
MY LESSONS: I believe in democratic English classes. There is nothing my students have to do- they honestly want to be in the classroom and actively participate in the lessons. Magic? Lie? Not at all! My aim is to make students responsible for their learning process. Wide range of materials, varied activities, sense of humor and lots of patience help me to achieve success.
IN MY FREE TIME: I love spending time with my family. Together with my little son and husband we travel and discover different cultures.
EDUCATION: The University of Warsaw, University College of English Language Teacher Education; Warsaw University of Life Sciences (Pedagogy; Tourism and Recreation)
PROFESSIONALLY: The Lemon Tree teacher, translator
MY LESSONS: I pay attention to accuracy, especially in pronunciation and spelling. Also like doing a lot of vocabulary exercises. I am interested in culture related learning of a language, so with advanced levels I tend to do a lot of things connected to Great Britain, Australia and the USA. Authentic materials are extremely important to me.
IN MY FREE TIME: I learn new languages and get to know new places. When it's hot, I try to be on fresh air as long as it is possible. Really like riding a bike, roller-skating and dancing. Love doing all with my family.
EDUCATION: University of Warsaw, faculty: English Teaching and American Culture Studies
PROFESSIONALLY: An English teacher and translator at The Lemon Tree
MY LESSONS: I believe that the key to effective teaching lays in the appropriate motivating of the student. That is why during my lessons I try to meet the interests of my students and encourage them to broaden their language horizons.
IN MY FREE TIME: I love spending my free time along with my family and friends, preferably while travelling and exploring new places.
EDUCATION: University of Melbourne, The Melbourne School of Land and Environment
PROFESSIONALLY: English Language Instructor (Native Speaker) & Proof-Reader
MY LESSONS: During lessons with me, my students build confidence and vocabulary and improve their fluency through "practice by doing". Conversational lessons are enjoyable and in a relaxed environment and I am open to discuss a wide range of topics. Where required, grammar is explained through conversation so students are able to put it to use in real life situations.
IN MY FREE TIME: I have a wide range of hobbies, some really weird, some very common. I'm into photography, and enjoy integrating people with interesting architectural backdrops in my photography. More recently I have just passed my Motorboat Skipper licence (in Polish language) and hope to one day own my own motorboat. Another recent enjoyable pastime of mine is restoration of antiques, especially antiques which have some personal meaning to me. I also enjoy traveling and have traveled to many different parts of Europe (but there's still a lot more on my list of "must-see places" to visit). :-)
EDUCATION: University of Silesia
PROFESSIONALLY: : I love teaching, watching my students make progress and discovering new ways to keep them interested. I frequently use internet videos, podcasts, interactive games to create authentic and lively learning experience.
MY LESSONS: I try to follow my rule of three Es: my lessons have to be Effective, Engaging and Enjoyable. :-)
IN MY FREE TIME: I love cooking, travelling, reading books and going to Zumba classes. :-)
EDUCATION: University of Warsaw, Institute of Applied Linguistics
MY LESSONS: I try my best to keep my learners interested during the class, avoiding boring and repetitive tasks and materials. Instead I try to get to know them a bit so that I know what they find engaging to do or to talk about. Having a good time doesn't mean you're not learning - the purpose of each and every class is to visibly improve your knowledge of English. I know well how easy it is to forget all those freshly learnt words, which is why I put emphasis on vocabulary revisions.
IN MY FREE TIME: I use the classical remedies for boredom: friends, movies, reading, cycling, travelling, and occasionally learning a completely new skill, even if it's not necessarily useful.
EDUCATION: The University of Warsaw, University College of English Language Teacher Education
PROFESSIONALLY: a teacher
MY LESSONS: I really enjoy having fun with my students, so I use a lot of interesting games, which I find useful in exercising both vocabulary and grammar. I take care of a friendly atmosphere in the classroom - it's the best way to practice communication skills and break the walls of my students' shyness. And I hate boredom!
IN MY FREE TIME: My favorite seasons are spring and summer, when I can spend most of my time outside, walking, playing and basking in the sun. I love Scrabble, good books, my family and my cat.
EDUCATION: University College of English Language Teacher Education and the faculty of Psychology, University of Warsaw

PROFESSIONALLY: Key Account Menager, English teacher, Lemon Tree Camps Crew, Entertainer and Event Planner
MY LESSONS: My lessons focus on communication, but explaining grammar easily is equally important to me. That's why I transform English tenses into mathematical formulas. I try to have fun with my students which encourage them to learn. We play games, watch movies, make projects, sometimes even exercise and cook. :-)
IN MY FREE TIME: I travel (often choose hitchhiking), listen to music (preferably at the concerts) and meet friends. Getting to know new people, places and food is what I like. I also cook at home. I like watching films and reading books (especially Terry Pratchett's ones). Martial arts used to be my passion. Recently I have walked on stilts, learn to play djembe and chocalho. :-)
EDUCATION: English Teacher Training College, University of Warsaw
PROFESSIONALLY: Teacher of English
MY LESSONS: During my classes I do my best to challenge the students in many ways making the English language not the aim but the manner of the process. My objective is to arouse students' inner motivation and make them eager to learn more, regardless of their age. I include a lot of movement, shouting (and whispering), guessing, art-creating, eating and many more to make sure laughter is a part of every lesson.
IN MY FREE TIME: I travel a lot in order to get to know foreign cultures, cuisines, and styles of living. I dance passionately (salsa and bachata), go jogging early in the morning whenever and wherever I can, learn foreign languages and try to convince my friends they should learn some as well. :-) I also do my best to became a great artist one day.
EDUCATION: I studied in Ipswich in the United Kingdom and entered the workplace as a TV and video engineer. I then went on to work for the same company for 23 years in different roles and capacities before moving to Poland.
PROFESSIONALLY: Since arriving to Poland I have been teaching both business English and general English for the past 5 years.
MY LESSONS: Everyone is an individual, therefore I place emphasis on tapping into each individual's needs. I enjoy working with and meeting new students and the lesson content is broad and varied. The aim is that the students I see go home invigorated, enthusiastic about what they have gained during the lesson and want to come back to both Lemon and myself. The most important thing in the lessons I hold is to talk and to break down any barriers that you might have. That way we can all learn and enjoy the lesson and the content.
IN MY FREE TIME: I enjoy watching Premier League football, rugby and golf. Recently I have adopted a dog and enjoy walking with Lolek and my wife and noticing the new developments to the areas we are in and watching the seasons as they change.

PROFESSIONALLY: The Lemon Tree teacher
MY LESSONS: I have two main goals in mind when I prepare my lessons: the first one is to teach a practical skill one can use in a real situation, the second one is to do it in a fun and interesting way. I would like my students to understand that learning a foreign language is not a chore. It is a process filled with variety, which ultimately may open a whole new world for the learner.

MY LESSONS: Doesn't time fly fast when you're having fun? I believe that learning can be enjoyable, creative, challenging and adventurous. In my class I want to show that Japanese is so much easier than you realize, especially when you truly understand it, rather than just remember stuff! :-)
IN MY FREE TIME: My favorite thing is sitting in a café with a good book, sipping coffee slowly and fully enjoying my free time. Apart from this, I love jogging, travelling and trying new things. :-)
EDUCATION: The University of Warsaw, University College of Language Teacher Education undergraduate
PROFESSIONALLY: The Lemon Tree teacher and editor in Radio Aktywne
MY LESSONS: The crucial thing in teaching is to make students comfortable during the learning process. They should feel relaxed and focused.

And the most pleasant feeling for a teacher is satisfaction after achieving the goals.
