Hi, I’m Andy Gillin

I come from New Zealand but I’ve grown to love Katowice and Silesia

I came to Poland 10 years ago, since when I’ve started a family here, and yes, a language services company too. From the start of my time in Poland I’ve worked as a native speaker, language instructor, and later as a voice artist. I’ve made great friends and built up a network of contacts, thanks to whom the idea for Dynamic English was born. Since 2011 we’ve been active on the Polish market, using Direct methodology which we strongly believe is the most effective and fun way to teach. We ensure that our clients are happy and fully satisfied with the learning process, just as we are! But don’t just take my word for it – come and see for yourself at a completely FREE consultation!

David

Brought up in Australia, I have lived in the four major cities of the land most call Down Under. I arrived in Melbourne as a young boy, three years old, from Poland. My mother decided to leave Poland in 1980. It was a wonderful place growing up. We moved around a lot changing cities as my father was always looking for better work. Gold Coast was the last place where I finished my education – I was, and still am, in love with the ocean and surfing. In 1998, I moved to live in America for two years, trying to understand the American lifestyle and adversity. In the year 2000 I started teaching English in Poland, Krakow, Gdansk and Wroclaw to name a few. I now live in Bytom, which I’m learning to admire. I enjoy my profession because apart from teaching, I learn so much. I also paint, take photos, have a knack for inventions and thoroughly get a kick out of traveling, near and far. It is always better to travel well, than to arrive.

Oliver

My name is Oliver and I come from the Garden of England, otherwise known as Kent in the South East, from a small town called Royal Tunbridge Wells. I’ve been teaching English as a foreign language since 2004, when I flew to China, originally intending to stay only for one year. I soon found that the pleasures of teaching, living in another culture and meeting new people, got under my skin, and so I jumped at the chance to come to Poland when I was invited.

I have worked with Andy Gillin since the summer of 2009, and was delighted to accept his offer to join his new Dynamic English school in Jan 2014. We have great students of all levels who are intelligent, ambitious and motivated, and I enjoy helping them raise the standard of their English with a mix of conversation and guided repetition, and we cover every topic under the sun in our lessons.

Nick

Hi there, I’m originally from the wonderful city of Stoke-on-Trent in England. After graduating university I spend a few years travelling the world teaching English to people from all walks of life, before finally finding myself in sunny Katowice. I’ve been living in Katowice for around 7 years now and I really enjoy meeting new people all over Poland. When I’m not teaching English, I spend my time playing the guitar, racing drones, playing games, and exploring the bars and cafes of Katowice.

Bulcsu

Born in Hungary and raised in Canada, with more than 10 years experience of teaching English at every level from absolute beginner to Proficiency, Bulcsu is ready to take on any challenge a new student may throw at him. His exposure to different cultures has contributed to his ability to understand and sympathise with the unique obstacles facing every learner of English. Bulcsu’s interests include watching films, good food, travel, sociology and music.

Victoria

Born and raised in San Diego, California with Polish blood, I am blessed to bring true bilingualism, hard work and charm to the team at Dynamic English. During my time in Poland, apart from teaching English I have traveled throughout Europe, parts of Africa, a few Scandinavian countries and have finished a degree in English Philology. My heart is fueled by love, exploration and good vibes. I certainly believe in the cliche “sharing is caring,” which is amongst one of the many reasons why I enjoy what I do. By teaching people I am able to not only challenge others’ potential but mine included. I’m all about finding new avenues to change as well as expand off of what I already know about life.

Tony

Hi, I’m Tony, a native speaker from Long Island, New York. I have lived and worked in many countries around the world as a musician exploring their culture and beauty. Currently I am living in Poland with my family and working as a Native Speaker. I have been a part of Dynamic English since January 2019 and am excited about being a part of the Dynamic English team, encouraging my students to continue their growth and discover the English language.

Monika

I developed my passion for teaching English during my MA studies at English Philology Department and teaching still continues to be my passion. I am lucky enough to have lived and worked in several countries – Poland and Britain (being both Polish and British passport holder), the USA and the Sultanate of Oman. I have a wealth of experience working in international and multicultural environments and teaching General English as well as English for Specific Purposes and preparing students for Cambridge and IELTS exams.

In my leisure time, I am a world-traveller and explorer. I have participated in numerous expeditions to many countries on several continents. I also love designing and decorating interiors.

Sam

From the US, who has been teaching English for 4 years. After travelling around Europe, he has discovered that Poland owns a large space in his small heart and decided to unpack his interest in Poland. He has been a public speaker who uses verbal pyrotechnics to click on the motivation and energy tab in students. Sam believes in getting connected with students and helping them step by step to enhance their English. He is a passionate sportsman who also encourages vegetarianism and other environmental friendly activities.
