Personal Description:

As a qualified Secondary Education Teacher (QTS/UK), I have 14 years of experience teaching Classical and Modern Greek, History, Greek Literature and Creative Writing in both classrooms and one-on-one sessions. I am committed to providing students with a challenging and interesting learning environment in which they can improve their cognitive and language skills while ensuring the successful inclusion of students with learning or communication disorders in the regular classroom. So far, I have succeeded in stimulating top academic performances from my students while simultaneously encouraging personal and emotional growth. I always strive to take their learning experience a step further, encouraging them to complete demanding research projects or to compete at a national level.

Teaching Experience:

In regards to my teaching experience, I have worked in various settings and managed to develop schemes of work and lesson plans in line with curriculum objectives, including the successful inclusion of special education students in the general classroom. I constantly strive to develop and improve cognitive and verbal reasoning to enhance learning, according to age, ability and aptitude. Being energetic and versatile, I have managed to implement creative and interactive teaching methods, which resulted in improving classroom engagement by using multimedia animation, art and visual learning techniques. Throughout my career, I have managed to create a respectful environment between parents, students and teaching staff. My dedication, inborn patience as well as my ability to work effectively with adolescents, have earned me considerable success over the years. I have constantly contributed to high academic performance, with 75% annual success rate at National Examinations, during which my students achieved top academic performance. In addition, I was awarded for taking the initiative to effectively prepare students and coordinate our participation in the annual Youth Parliament competition at a national level. Moreover, I have always challenged students to think critically and improved their knowledge by assigning demanding research projects so that they are adequately equipped for university life.

Teaching Approach:

Guiding principles

For me, it is very important to link the language I teach with different aspects of life in Greece. When I have to cover a linguistic objective, I always think of a setting that is familiar and useful for my students and make use of my intercultural knowledge at the same time. This is because culture and language are intimately linked.

My mission

My mission is to assist students in their path to knowledge, help them reach their full potential and acquire the skills they need to be successful in life. I embrace the challenge to effectively adopt a range of strategies tailored to each student's learning needs and to see them flourish thanks to my personalised approach to their education.

My teaching style

I set clear goals and learning objectives. I plan lessons that enable students to learn exceptionally well across the curriculum. I check systematically and effectively students' understanding throughout lessons, anticipating where they need to intervene and doing so with a notable impact on the quality of learning. Consistently high-quality marking & constructive feedback from me ensure that students make rapid gains. I also use well-judged & inspirational teaching strategies, including setting appropriate homework together with sharply focused and timely support and intervention, so that I can match individual needs accurately.
