Teacher: Oana

Romanian and English teacher

A long-term sufferer from the ‘itchy feet syndrome’, I am now counting the Netherlands as the fourth country where I have lived so far. I was apparently born to wander this part of the Earth and I obviously wonder what new adventures are in store for me. Teaching Romanian and English in Kookoovaja is one such enterprise and I welcome every student who wishes to embark on this adventure with me. Given my background in journalism, curiosity, communicativeness, inquisitiveness and thirst for knowledge are essential traits of the way I learn and teach in my turn. If you would like to perfect your English for general purposes or for business, prepare for an English language exam, or step into the realm of Romanian language and culture, let’s talk!

Brief CV

Oana is a Journalism and English graduate of the West University in Timișoara, Romania. During her university studies she took a gap year to perfect her knowledge of the English language in London, England, which resulted in her successfully passing the Cambridge Proficiency Exam. Her teaching experience spans 14 years now. She has taught in-company English courses to levels from elementary to upper-intermediate. While living in Slovenia for 11 years she taught English in companies specialised in finance, media, commerce or consulting, and Romanian to Slovenes doing business in Romania or to Romanian language enthusiasts for fun. She is experienced in teaching classes of up to ten students, as well as one-to-one classes to busy managers. Since 2015 she has been living and working in the Netherlands, connecting to people from various cultures and acting as an intermediary between various languages.
