About Camelia


Bio

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...

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 am a high school language teacher in Mid Cities for the past 3 years.

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.

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,

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,

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

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.

Excellent Tutor

Camelia conducted a review of French conversation after I hadn’t used it in 3 years. The review was essential for a new business job I interviewed for where French was essential. Camelia was patient and provided a good warm up and resources to improve my French on my own. Highly recommend her.

Shaun , 1 lesson with Camelia

Knowledgeable, kind and very encouraging.

Camelia helped me prepare for an interview that I have coming up in French. She gave me great tips that have increased my confidence in speaking. I look forward to using her again to help me prepare for my certification exam..

Tutor responded:

Thank you very much Dawn. I hope you got the job and look forward to work with you on that exam.

A Language Guru!

I chose Camelia to be my English tutor from a group of 6 tutors that my boyfriend and I met with. It was the correct choice! She is an talented English teacher, with over 20 years of teaching experience. In our first meeting, she used her years of experience and teaching resources to test my skills and determine my level in the language. At the end of the lesson she presented the curriculum that she would be covering over the coming weeks and gave me practice sheets to work on in the time between our next meeting. Every lesson was thoughtfully prepared and organized, with a consistent structure. Camelia presents the topics we are to cover, uses interactive activities to practice the target, tests for comprehension, and gives practice sheets to strengthen understanding. She even took me shopping to practice a specific grammar skill! She is an excellent option for anyone looking to learn English.

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much Jeremy, I really appreciate your feedback and love the fact that she liked it and learned something that she can take with her. Good luck for the future.

A good start!

My daughter enjoyed her first lesson with Camelia and is looking forward to the next one. It will take a while to assess progress, but I am pleased with the good start.

Beverly, 3 lessons with Camelia

Great tutor!!

Cami has been a wonderful tutor for my daughter for French. She is very professional and patiently works with the student using a variety of methods that keep the student engaged. My daughter enjoyed working with Cami and we saw a definite improvement in her French and her English grammar too! I feel confident highly recommending Camelia B. as a superior teacher.
