The director welcome

Dear Parents and Students,

 

 

This is called the director's welcome. I am the director, but I am also a mother, and this is my statement from the ‘mother’ position. 

Argo International Program was born as a result of me asking myself: ‘What would I like for my teenage daughter?’ The answer I found can be outlined in a few words: safety, people who care and people who are not only competent, but are experts. 

Selecting a school for my daughter is not only about her academic success, but equally about ensuring her healthy development in an environment dedicated to her wellbeing: physically, mentally and educationally. 

It is about finding a place where she can grow surrounded by people who are looking at her for the unique individual that she is. A school where people are able and have the time to look at what my daughter needs and what fits her best.  A school where her mental wellbeing is central, so the academic success follows naturally.

Achieving these standards is definitely not an easy task. I could not ask others to perform at certain standards unless I implement them myself first. So, I set myself to reaching them and a huge amount of work was required. I achieved my psychotherapy training degree and then I specialized in lateral thinking and metacognition. Finally, I became a learning expert, developing a framework tailored for teenage learning; where emotional, physical and mental dimensions work together optimally. 

The last step of this long journey was to find people that think like me, people who care and were willing to learn further. My team and my partners are the result of a selection where no compromises were accepted and where each individual has both the academic and psychological fortitude to help our children reach their fullest potential. 

The result is an academic environment where I am proud my daughter will attend!

"I am a very good student, but even I have problems sometimes understanding and learning a specific subject, and especially then I get a big panic.
TEMPERA offered me not only learning support, but as well moral, encouraging and motivating environment.
It was always a good and welcoming atmosphere when studying and i am very  thankful for the help." 

Petar, Croatia

"My personal experience with the TEMPERA as well as with Ioana is exceptional. The amount of dedication that she puts into helping students plan out and go through with their planned schedule is remarkable. Personally, I think that, that sort of thing is necessary to help students who are lost in their studies and are unable to help themselves in a manner thar would otherwise allow them to successfully finish their studies." 

Anastasia, Russia

"I am very grateful to Ioana for helping me for so many years at each step of my studies. She motivates me every time when I would have troubles with writing my papers, preparing for exams She taught me learning techniques and helped me develop my time management skills. She is very precise and able to keep me on track.  She would always find time for helping me. Her work is distinguished by individual approach to each student."
