My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven and media-enriched practice toward the language. This establishes a common and confident ground for inspirational English learning.

Anisoara was resourceful and prepared. This was better than I had hoped for.
Drake W.
I have worked with Anisoara for over a year now, and my Romanian understanding has grown considerably. Romanian is her mother tongue. She is a patient instructor who has composed her own materials and works easily with other Romanian grammar books. I highly recommend her.

Ani is a wonderful and patient teacher who truly cares about your learning. I have wanted to improve my Romanian skills for years but didn’t think it was possible due to my age or time constraints. I’m so happy to have found her lessons online and look forward to each week!
