About

My teaching is a direct reflection of my deep commitment to each learner and to (language) education in general. I love to promote and witness “aha moments” that inspire growth and transformation. Also, I like to keep up to date with the latest research and developments in my field.

I can teach individuals, small groups, big groups in face-to-face, online or blended formats. I have an online learning platform with mobile app (for Android and iPhone) and often use online/mobile tools for collaboration and learning.

My strengths are:

  • to teach English for Specific Purposes, such as
    • academic: studying or teaching in English at university, scholarship applications
    • scientific: writing and presenting scientific papers in English, writing research grant applications
    • professional: medical terminology and communication, the OET exams, medical job interviews
    • general: preparation for IELTS (Academic), CAE, FCE exams
  • to provide unique learning experiences that matter, based on
    • my best authentic self
    • student-centeredness
    • language and content integration
    • purposeful use of resources and tools
    • constructive feedback and formative assessment
    • emotional safety, free flow of creativity and humor.

Fees

My fees vary depending on the stakes, complexity, duration of the session/course. I always put in time, expertise, and creativity to tailor the learning experience to the learner’s particular needs and style. I give my best, expect your best, and cherish our time. I believe that you should, too.

I always begin with a diagnostic discussion and very careful planning before charging any money. I have to know that we are both clear about your goals and realistically able to commit before I get involved.

My fees range as follows:

  • 50-100 RON / 30-min online “pill” via video conferencing or other online collaboration tools
  • 100-150 RON / 90-minute one-to-one, face-to-face session
  • 200-250 RON / 120-minute small group workshop (2-3 learners)
  • 25-60 Euro / 60-min online sessions and related feedback for 1-3 international learners
  • +50 RON/10 Euro may be added for longer, last minute, weekend or evening sessions (yes, family time IS more precious)
  • other, depending on complexity, group size, course length, format specifics etc.
  • no fees for the right cause, if I have time.

I only design and deliver learning experiences based on contracts that we write and sign together. I only accept payment based on the corresponding invoices.

The occupational code under which I am authorized to teach is CAEN 8559.
