Fly High English Club

International intern and English trainer at Fly High English Club in Craiova, Romania. Throughout an entire summer, I lived in Craiova and taught at Fly High and observed the full-time teachers as they worked with students learning English from age five to middle school. In the evenings, I led English conversation workshops with high school students. Summer 2017.

Over the course of three summers, I’ve helped lead week-long english camps in Romania where I created curriculum and taught groups of low-level college students through the connections I’ve had in Romania – now a place very dear to my heart.
