Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile! If you want to learn Romanian in an easy, fun and efficient way, then you’ve come to the right place.
I love teaching and I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm for the Romanian language and culture with you. I also have experience in learning a foreign language, so I understand your needs and challenges.
I currently live in Romania, but I also lived in the USA, Greece and Spain.
I adore traveling, great food and opera. I am an active person; I like outdoor activities and running marathons.
I have a Bachelor Degree from University of Bucharest and a Master Degree from New York University, USA.
I’ve started teaching Romanian as a foreign language in 2006. I’ve worked with people from different parts of the world: USA, UK, Canada, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, South Africa, Ukraine, Egypt, Spain, France, Bulgaria, Israel, Czech Republic and Switzerland.
I have taught a wide variety of learners from first graders to senior citizens, complete beginners to advanced students.
My teaching approach is friendly and focused on the requests of the learners.
It's very important to understand why you want to learn Romanian, and this will have a significant impact on my methodology and lesson content. If you want to learn just for a trip abroad, we'll take a different approach to if you want to study or move to Romania.
I will provide you with all the materials you need in different formats (word documents, power point slides, pdf and mp3) so you can access them on different devices at home or on the go.
Because I like my learning experience to be pleasant, fun and very effective, I do my best to create that for my students.
Looking forwards to the next lesson!
Simona is a great language teacher who provides the structure needed to judge where you are in your learning trajectory. Being able to see your progress is motivating - in my case to work harder:).
I just finished my first lesson with Simona! She is very patient, encouraging and helpful! She teaches very clearly, and thoroughly explains grammar concepts. She is a very pleasant person to work with! I'm looking forward to my next lesson!
She is the best. I needed help with my Romanian class and she was there for me. She was on time and very professional. For sure I'll schedule another lesson when I need help with Romanian language.
