Ivelina is a great teacher. She is helping me with Bulgarian language. Ivelina has the knowledge and the skills to teach. She is patient and enthusiastic. She prepares the material and games to make classes interesting and fun. I would highly recommend her.

Ivelina is an amazing tutor - she has not only given me the gift of speaking Bulgarian she has given me the confidence to learn again. I’m dyslexic and so reading and writing has always been difficult for me. But with a huge amount of patience and skill Ivelina has taught me to read and write Bulgarian (in Cyrillic script). Also most importantly I’m now able to converse with my Bulgarian friend of 15 years in his own language. I’m 44 years old and was nervous about going back to school but I shouldn’t have worried because Ivelina has such a friendly teaching style that you might not realise your in an online classroom at times. She has adapted her teaching to suit my needs and makes special lesson plans to suit the needs of the student. If you want to learn Bulgarian online then you won’t get better value for money from a more helpful, experienced and skilful tutor than Ivelina. I wholeheartedly recommend her. You won’t be disappointed, Dan Lavin, Cheshire UK

It was truly a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Ivelina in creating a legal document. Despite us all living in hectic day-to-day infrastructures of life, Evelina is an eloquent person and is impassioned for the Bulgarian language and above all, is serene with a distinctive ethical code of practise.

The word professional, requires a clear mind, an ethical thinking pattern connected with a strict code of practice. Nowadays, without a doubt, many will be on the same page which is not easy for everyone to follow a code of professionalism. Under the given circumstances, the word Professional is where I am content in using Ivelina’s dedication and her natural ability and competence in working with all age groups. To those reading this recommendation you will be able to recognise from the very beginning, Ivelina’s passion and serenity. I am eager in wishing her new pupil’s in preparing themselves for a joyful journey within the Bulgarian culture and unleashing its hidden secrets.

With kind regards,

Krasimir

I really enjoy my lessons with Ivelina. She takes the time to set out a lesson that is targeted just for me and goes at a pace I need. My lessons are always fun but I feel that I've actually learnt something at the end of the lesson.
I always look forward to my lessons. I recommend Ivelina to anyone looking to learn Bulgarian young or old.

Interview with IVELINA

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
IVELINA — I speak Bulgarian language fluently as I am born and raised in Bulgaria, studied Humanitarian profile in high school and Pedagogy at university in Bulgaria.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
IVELINA — Fictional Bulgarian character for me would be Hitar Petar (Smart Peter). Hitar Petar is a popular hero in Bulgarian folk tales and is found in hundreds of stories set during the Ottoman yoke (1393-1878). His "partner" is the Turkish hodja, Nastradin, who usually plays the part of the canny fool; the interaction between the two involves friendly jokes containing no malice. During the twentieth century, a number of famous Bulgarian authors had adapted some of the stories about Hitar Petar into novels. He is a stereotypical representation of the poor Bulgarian villager, who always finds a way to ridicule the rich.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behavior in the language that you particularly like?
IVELINA — Bulgarians nod their heads in the opposite way for "Yes" and "No".
When Bulgarians take a picture they would say "Zele!" which means cabbage :)
On 1st March every year Bulgarians would gift and exchange braided/twisted red and white yarn bracelets, pins or brooches made out of red and white yarn too, called "Martenitsi". They would take them off when they see a stork, the notifier of the spring, or when the month March is over. Straight after they take them off, people would tie their "Martenitsi" on the closest green tree for good luck.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
IVELINA — Speaking Bulgarian is important for me for so many reasons: as a person raised with this language, within its culture and beauty; as a person living abroad from my home land, I feel I have the duty to preserve the language,keep using it, practice it and pass it on to everyone willing to learn it; as a poet and writer I love using, playing and enjoying with the language's richness and as a polyglot I love expressing myself and expanding my knowledge in any language including my native. People say you may learn a second as well as you know your first.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
IVELINA — The main difficulty might be at first learning the Cyrilic letters and further on to learn about gender words.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
IVELINA — What is the common between the language teacher and the judge?
They both give you sentences.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
IVELINA — Traveling since I was small around Bulgaria with my family, friends and after that at uni, gave me a great amount of knowledge in different accents, new words and phrases. Traveling around Europe expanded this knowledge while finding words that are identical, similar or foreign but used in Bulgarian language.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
IVELINA — I am a Superprof in Bulgarian language, because I am Bulgarian native,qualified teacher, knowledgeable and experienced in online teaching,versatile, patient, flexible, honest and can communicate on any level.
