Information About Alkisti - Stirling teacher - (7 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Alkisti:
I was born and raised in Athens, so Greek is my native language. I was an excellent student during my education in Greece and in high school I followed theoretical studies, focusing on the study of ancient and modern Greek. I started learning English when I was 7 years old and have lived across the UK in the past, while currently, I live in Scotland. This has made me fluent in English and I can confidently say that I have a great understanding of both Greek and English.
In the past, I have worked as an English teacher for 3 years, teaching English as a foreign language to young and adult learners in Greece. I have worked with students of all ages and levels and have successfully aided them in advancing in their studies of the English language.
Since moving to Scotland, I started teaching Greek as a foreign language. Some of my students wanted to learn Greek for their work, while others were just interested in the language. I have received very positive feedback from all of my students so far.
When it comes to teaching, I believe that the most important thing is to take into account the wishes and needs of the student. Everyone has a different approach to learning and I try to respect that and follow teaching techniques that are interesting and educational for my students. During the lesson, I communicate in the target language as much as possible, in order to familiarize the student with the phenomena of each language and resort to the student's native language only for explaining things that the student might have difficulty with. For each lesson, I try to create new activities, designed specifically for the level and needs of each student, in order to target the aspects of the language that the student needs to practice on.

Her lessons are engaging and interesting and a variety of teaching methods are employed, which ensures my interest is maintained at all times.
Alkisti is a native speaker of the language and her learning materials and explanations are really good - meaning that I have progressed a lot in a short space of time.
If you are looking to learn some Greek then I don't think you will find anyone better than Alkisti.
She is an excellent tutor and I look forward to our lessons. She already has a good feel for what I need and she encourages me to speak Greek.
Going back to trying to learn Greek has proved to be a good decision.
