Personal Description:

I am a qualified teacher from Thessaloniki, Greece. I am a graduate of the Hellenic American Union (Department of Translation and Linguistics). After many years of studying and attaining professional and academic qualifications, I commenced my professional teaching career in my home country. For 18 years I worked as a full time teacher of English and Greek, tutoring both children and adults, providing both online and face-to-face classes according to the needs of my students. Now, based in the UK, I continue to provide the same educational services to children and adults within my city. I also continue to teach online.

Teaching Approach:

As a teacher with 18 years professional experience I continuously strive to build rapport with my students, creating a trusting atmosphere and paying constant attention to individual strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. I offer a tailored learning experience in which the lesson is a dynamic and interactive process. I am very proud of my students and I adore my job. It always makes me very happy to see them making progress, constantly advancing in their understanding of the language and attaining further self-confidence in its application, and I never cease to be amazed by how much one's life changes when one masters a new language. Equally exciting for me is the way in which new opportunities open up for my students both in their personal and professional lives.

In my current teaching role, I am often asked to provide teaching programmes focused on Greece's culture, civilization, Ancient and Modern History, geography, customs, societal values and traditions.
