Hi there, I'm Teo and I'm a Romanian native speaker. I see myself as an easy-going individual and I'm always up for a challenge.
My interests are quite varied, I like winter and outdoor sports, going to cinema, reading, learning languages and I am into arts, culture, history and traveling.
Me as a Teacher
I see myself more as a guide, than a teacher, simply because I don't have a teaching background. So, what you will get to see in me is a native who can help you get a real feeling of the language. Of course, I am familiarized with how the language works, so I can touch "traditional" topics like grammar and phonetics very easily, but I also believe that when you learn a language the approach should be more intuitive and experimental. :)
My lessons & teaching style
The student's goal in learning Romanian has priority 0 to me and I will give my best to prove that.
My lessons will be customized for each student and I would like to create a language learning environment that simulates real life situations. For this reason, I think it's important to have a space where you can make supervised errors, because we make lots of mistakes when we speak.
My teaching style I would define it as hybrid, I am interested in the input from the student and, of course, I will be there to provide guidance and needed information every time.
My goal is to expose you to a contemporary Romanian, to a variety of its registries, in order to reflect its richness and beauty. :)
