My name is Raluca Berger, I've been tutoring and teaching for nearly 15 years. I've helped individuals from all age ranges learn new languages, continue learning old languages and compliment language classes at primary or secondary schools with supplementary lessons. I have a degree in linguistics and currently work as both an interpreter and translator for hospitals, law enforcement and private businesses.
I've dedicated my career to facilitating communication between people who are separated by the barriers of language. I have a passion for languages and love working with new students to accomplish their goals. I've helped business persons prepare for trips by learning enough to get what they need and impress their clients. I’ve helped others to truly immerse themselves on vacation by introducing them to not only the language but the culture of the regions they are traveling to. I’ve worked with individuals for whom English is a second language to develop fluency and to study for citizenship and other tests. I’ve worked with children to either learn a new language or to learn English.
I've been tutoring for ten years, I've taught German, Italian, Romanian and English to students at all levels; from business persons to young children looking for enrichment. I currently reside in Jacksonville Florida and offer tutoring from my home and lessons via Skype and other platforms. Most sessions last between 1-2 hours and I recommend at least weekly sessions so that the students retain as much as possible. If you are interested in group or family sessions they can also be arranged at a discounted rate. I typically like to meet with my client first to discuss their needs and expectations and to assess the student's level of understanding so that I can craft a lesson plan that will be most beneficial to the student.
As an authorized translator from an EU member state, I've translated thousands of documents over the years including: Birth Certificates, Travel Documents, Marriage Certificates, Technical Documents and many more in the following language pairs:
I've been interpreting from English into Romanian and Romanian into English since 2003, my focus has been on consecutive interpretations and I've worked with a variety of different agencies and organizations as an independent contractor over the years. I've interpreted for police agencies, hospitals and city, state and federal governments. The majority of my work has been via teleconference or via Skype.
