About Maria

To be or not to be a Tutor?

“Tell me and I forget. teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” B. Franklin
Whenever I had new students, I have always followed this saying in my way of teching.
As a tutor,most of my new students didn’t have bright results at school and parents were desperate. There was a challenge for all of us, for me, as a teacher, and a responsability as well, for the child and for the parents. The most adventurous case was the case of a 8 years old girl. She had 5 tutors before me and a horrible English Teacher at school.The last English hour ended in tears for her and in shouting for the tutor. She didn’t want to hear about English and she didn’t want to participate at her English class from school either. I tried to explain her that learning a new language isn’t all about grammar and awful spelling and the fact that she couldn’t pronounce properly most of the words, it’s about culture, history, funny facts and I succeeded. There have been two years since then, two years in which the girl passed with flying colors two of the YLE exams and now she’s preparing for getting into the 5th grade-bilingual English-Romanian.
I was an English-Spanish teacher in Romania, but I am qualified to teach Romanian too. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in teaching Romanian and Spanish and a Master Degree in teaching English and Spanish. I am also a tutor because I believe that this is an amazing opportunity for children to excel in a speficic area. At school, as a teacher, you have 25-30 students and you have to give each at least 1-2 minutes in one hour.Not all the teachers succeed in achieving this task, but tutoring gives to a child the chance „to grow”.
