Born in Poland and having attended high school and college in the United States, Zuzanna has spent most of her life with a foot in each country. She graduated from Columbia University in 2013 with degrees in statistics and linguistics; she is now a 5th year PhD student in linguistics at Harvard, where she has received numerous awards for her teaching. Zuzanna currently has a pedagogical fellowship from the University, and was recently appointed an Ambassador to the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT). She still visits her hometown of Warsaw, Poland frequently, and she considers Cambridge University in the UK to be her third home, as she spends parts of her summers there teaching math and computer science.
With Cambridge Coaching since 2013, Zuzanna has a wealth of experience in college admissions coaching and SAT prep. She has helped students from Poland and the US achieve their dreams of admission to universities such as Harvard, Columbia, UPenn, and NYU, among others. Additionally, Zuzanna works with younger international students on their written and oral English language skills through engagement with advanced English-language media and literature, as well as through analytical essay writing, tailoring her curriculum to each student’s interests.
Outside of campus-related activities, Zuzanna enjoys going to fitness classes, reading books on popular psychology, and solving daily NYTimes crossword puzzles (or at least trying to). She is also finally teaching herself how to cook – until about two months ago, all she could cook was scrambled eggs, but now she’ll be happy to share her favorite recipes for enchiladas, paneer masala, and various pastas.
