Information About Regina - Surbiton teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Regina:
Native speaker of Greek - I am enthousiastic and passionate about offering my students the opportunity to explore the maximum of their potential and achieve success. Greek is a challenging but incredibly rewarding experience!
12 years teaching experience working as a Greek and GCSE tutor and examiner in the UK and Greece. My additional experience as a Violin and EFL teacher in both countries at various language schools and summer schools has given me valuable insight on students' needs and interests.
Currently I am preparing students for their GCSE exams and am delivering lessons to adults who want to start learning or improve their Greek.
I have short-term students, who afterwards were able to use their Greek on their very first visit to Greece or Cyprus, as well as long-term students whose progress and enjoyment I am excited to witness in our lessons. They are all passionate about learning the language and in our lessons they are encouraged to use it from the very beginning.
I have also been a GCSE examiner.
My lessons are communicative and include all skills, with emphasis on building up students` confidence in speaking. Due to my vast experience in the education sector, I have the ability to address my students` interests and adapt to their needs from the very first lesson. As I teach all sorts of nationalities, cultural references is one of the most important components of my lessons as it is proven to be an enjoyable and most effective learning strategy. I have a wide range of material to choose from, including video, audio, flashcards and other games. I always try to incorporate music in my lessons, as it has been proven to be a major facilitator of the language learning process.
My students benefit from my knowledge of music and experience as music educator as I can easily connect learning language to Greek fun songs. This helps them learn and memorise specific language areas, such as vocabulary, phrases, numbers, or idioms. I believe the use of music in language learning is an invaluable tool for all ages.
