I love teaching and especially private tutoring as it gives me the possibility to invest more and focus more on fewer students at a time. I have several years of experience in tutoring/teaching foreign languages (French, Spanish and ESL), English grammar and writing. Most of my tutoring/teaching has been done in Europe and Africa. I have taught in private, small groups; I've taught preschool, primary school, high school and I also taught at University, MA level. I have experience as well in teaching adults and seniors.

I have studied child psychology and I have thoroughly studied and research many teaching methodologies (including my final BA thesis/dissertation which was in teaching methodology). After several years of trying different methods I now use just a few teaching approaches although most of the time it is a creative combination of several. I use the Natural Approach, the Communicative Language Teaching Approach and Total Physical Response all combined, at times, with Audio-visual aids. But, most important, when I teach, I look at each individual and his/her specific needs and learning abilities and I focus on those and using those I bring out the best of each student.

I have a BA in foreign languages (ESL included) and a Master in linguistics and theology. I have a college diploma in theology and another one in cross-cultural studies. I have worked almost 3 years as a linguist in Africa.

I love sharing my skills and knowledge with my students, I love to see them grow and improve and along the way I enjoy learning and improving myself.

Bible Studies

I have attended a 3 years Bible Studies program in my home country Romania. I also studied at a Missionary Training College, in Holland, with focus on missions and Biblical Studies. I also have a MA from Dallas Theological Seminary in Biblical Exegesis and linguistics. In total I have studied Biblical Studies about 7 years. I have been and still am interested in the study of the Bible and I love it very much. I have also been a missionary linguist (focus on the Bible) for about 3 years.

English

I have a BA in English Language and Literature during witch I studied in depth American, British and world literature. I enjoyed it very much. I love to analyze literary works and to help people understand them by looking at them critically.
Literature is fascinating and English literature is probably one of the richest. I can help my students read literature with a critical eye and that, many times, leads to a better understanding and love of reading English writers.

ESL/ESOL

I have a BA in French and English Language and Literature done in Europe which actually means teaching English and French as a second language. I have a MA in linguistics (done in USA) having several courses in teaching/learning a second language. I have also a 2 years diploma in cross-cultural communication/teaching.
I have worked as an ESL and French SL teacher for the last 15 years (excluded the years while studying) in Europe and Africa. I have taught children of most ages as well as adult and senior students. I use new and creative teaching methodologies but, most important, when I teach, I look at each individual and his/her specific needs and learning abilities and I focus on those and using those I bring out the best of each student.

French

I've been a French teacher/tutor for over 10 years and I've enjoyed it very much. I've taught in different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and I've taught all levels and all ages, from pre-school to adults. Although my BA thesis was on French methodology, as a result of all those experiences I've developed new teaching methods that are proving to be very efficient. They involve audio, visual and tactile props.

I usually work with students using their own preferred learning style in order to help them maximize their learning process.

I have a BA with a major in teaching French language and literature and a MA in linguistics, with focus on grammar.

So, I can teach anything from conversational language to strictly grammar, from school required learning to business purposes.

French is a beautiful language and the culture behind it is as beautiful and interesting. It would be my honor to pass it on to you and help you understand it and love it too.

Grammar

I took 4 years of English and French grammar during my BA, 4 months of advanced general grammar during a specialized linguistic program and I have a MA in linguistics (from Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics). I worked almost 4 years as a missionary linguist with focus on grammar. I also helped put together and teach the firs linguistic course at Shalom Univ of Bunia, DR Congo as part of the MA in Bible Translation.

I love grammar very much, I love to figure out how languages work and I even had the privilege of doing that in few tribal languages of DR Congo.
Grammar seems hard but, in fact, it's not really that hard once you get a grip of it...and I would love to help you with that!

Proofreading

I worked as a proofreader and editor for a student magazine for almost 3 years. I enjoy proofreading as it has a lot to do with grammar which is my specialty.
I have an MA in linguistics and I worked as a grammarian for a couple of years with local languages in D. R. Congo. I taught grammar at the MA level at Shalom University of Bunia, DRC.
While I was doing the MA I used to grade papers and thus I got to know what professors are looking for in good papers. Besides, I had to write hundreds of papers myself.
I love to help people polish their papers and teach them how to best put their ideas on paper.

Religion

I have an MA from DTS on theology and I have also 2 diplomas on religion and cross-cultural studies with focus on religion from Bethel Bible College in Romania and Cornerstone Center For Cross-Cultural studies. I have studied Christian theology as well as world religions and how religion impacts the societies in particular and the globalization in general.

I love this subject and I'm very happy to help others understand it.

Study Skills

I have a 3 years diploma in Biblical studies, a 2 years diploma in Cross-cultural studies, a BA in French and ESL and a MA in Biblical studies and linguistics. During these 11 years of post high school studies I worked hard and had to perfect my study skills in order to complete my degrees. I have learned how to best structure my studies and to keep them time efficient. The strategies I've learned and developed I love to pass on to others.

Miracles can happen so quickly! My daughter, Nadia, was struggling with her Spanish class to the tune of a borderline "D" average. Not wanting my child to fail, I seeked out tutoring and came across Camelia through WyzAnt. Camelia was truly a blessing! Nadia struggled at first, as she had been doing all year, but Camelia was able to help Nadia grasp on to the curriculum in a way I've never seen my daughter do before. With th ...
