Wojciech Szymański
Tutor & Coach

Wojciech joined the Ark in 2014. He has started as a football coach, and then, since last year, he has commenced working with children full-time. Next to sports, he also teaches creative classes (he loves origami), and is a board games’ champion. Besides he can also play the piano and the guitar, thus giving some musical inspirations to children. Wojciech likes competition and rivalry, as long as it is fair. He believes that the winner is the one who has been fighting to the end, and he tries to promote this principle at the Ark. Privately, he is just about to graduate from his 2nd degree studies at Józef Piłsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw and is a happy husband-to-be.
