I am a tutor, published author and translator with a passion for foreign languages and art. I have 9 years of experience in teaching English and Romanian as a foreign language to people of all ages and abilities. As a trainer I collaborated with various foreign languages agencies. I taught private and online lessons.
Education and Work
I graduated from the University of Bucharest – Faculty of Foreign Languages. I majored in English literature with a minor in Hindi (I love the Indian culture and the spirituality of India). I hold a master’s degree in English translations and I have a certificate from Cambridge University. In 2018 I took a further professional development training course – “Teaching Romanian as a foreign language”.
My experience also includes working as a Project Manager at a foreign languages agency, where I kept in touch with clients via emails, phone, coming up with ideas for leaflets, etc. I worked as cultural journalist for Metropolis Newspaper, writing theater reviews, as well as book and film reviews, interviews with writers and other articles.
Do You Want to Learn Romanian?
It always helps to know your reason for wanting to learn Romanian. This allows me to tailor my lessons according to your needs. I’m very intuitive and empathetic and I know how to adapt my teaching style according to every student’s expectations. I like to make analogies and to put things in context in a friendly and creative manner. I also draw and paint, so there is always something original about my lessons and my approach. I guess you could say I am not a boring teacher.
I know Romanian can be a bit scary at first in terms of grammar and even pronunciation (we do have those weird ă, î, ș, ț letters), but I can definitely help you befriend it using my experience and sometimes my humor. Together we can navigate its occasionally tricky waters without headaches.
