Personal Description:

I am an enthusiastic, self motivated Teaching Professional with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations in the educational context.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 25 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults, interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Teaching Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals.
My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.
I tend to focus in improving the spoken fluency and the listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition but always related to the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.
I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results on good communication between both parties and the learner assessment throughout the course. Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and watching students improve their skills and being happy with their progress.
