My name is Camelia and I am a native Romanian speaker, originally from Vâlcea County, but currently living in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
l love exploring different cultures – in particular, I have spent a significant amount of time learning about the Japanese culture, however, I do consider that each culture has its own charm. My passion for foreign cultures is one of the main reasons I love to teach! I believe in the unconditional value of human life and I find I often have an affinity with people who appreciate nature and simplicity. My hobbies include writing, cooking, reading, travelling, and photography.

Teaching Approach
My lessons are interactive and engaging. I will coach and support you every step of the way to ensure you become fully competent and confident when communicating in Romanian, English or Japanese. I am happy to teach you in a way that suits you.
A typical lesson with me will involve lots of conversation, engaging activities to expand your vocabulary as well as useful techniques to improve your understanding of grammar. I would be delighted to create lessons specifically for you based on your current level and to help you achieve your aspirations. My lessons are supportive, fun, friendly and motivating, and I can incorporate all four aspects of language learning (reading, writing, speaking and listening).
❓ What you can expect from my lessons:
✅ Well structured materials (Pdfs, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, audio recordings and more). You do not need to buy any textbook or other resources, I offer everything you need to support your study in an organised manner.
✅ Plenty of vocabulary and useful expressions for daily use in real-life situations or specific terms and idioms for certain areas you are interested in;
✅ Grammar explained in-depth with theory and examples.
✅ Loads of exercises to practice your newly acquired vocabulary and grammar;
✅ Listening and writing practice;
✅ Conversation practice on various topics in a fun and relaxed way;
✅ Interactive reading and comprehension practice through stories accompanied by illustrations and interesting articles;
✅ Picture description exercises;
✅ Plus my constant encouragement and patience to keep you motivated 🙂
