Personal Description:

I have an MA in English Literature from Warwick University, a BA in English from Lancaster University, and an MMus In Music Performance from Kingston University. I've also trained as an actor for 5 years at The City Lit and the Impulse Theatre, Third Person Theatre and PEM in London and Hamburg.

I teach English, from KS1 up to graduate level, Modern Greek and Pop Singing.

With regards to English tuition, I specialize in GCSE and A level English, as well as in academic and creative writing. I also offer copy-writing, copy-editing and proofreading services.

I'm bilingual and have been teaching Modern Greek for the past ten years.

I've also been an active performer, singer and songwriter for more than 15 years. I hold an MA in Music Performance (for which I was awarded the music prize, and distinction). My vocal tuition includes:

• Breathing exercises

• Extending your singing range

• Creating character expression
• Maintaining vocal health

• Building confidence in performance

• Microphone technique
• Improvisation



I also offer songwriting lessons.

Tutoring Experience:

My experience in the education sector spans a period of almost 10 years. Amongst other placements, I have worked for three years as a part-time English lecturer at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus, teaching academic writing, creative writing and research skills. I have also taught English at The Grammar School in Nicosia, Cyprus. For the past four years I have been teaching part-time at a college in South-West London alongside my private tuition services.

I have extensive editorial experience, having worked as copy editor for three years for View Magazine, an English publication in Cyprus. I was also editor of a newsletter produced by The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (NGO) in Cyprus, as part of my project administration and management role there from September 2006 to February 2008. In addition, I was co-editor of the publication Dialogues of Self and Other, sponsored by the Anna Lindh Foundation, in 2008.

My work as freelance writer, translator, proofreader and editor is ongoing; I have contributed material for publications and consumer product websites since 2005, and have published short stories, poetry and articles in the UK, Cyprus, France, Egypt and Spain.

As an active singer/songwriter and performer, I also offer vocal tuition and songwriting courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very high success rate with my students showing marked improvement in their areas of study and successfully passing their exams, in many cases, with high grades. I provide tailor-made, well-structured lessons for each of my students. I am patient and I believe in my students' individual abilities and talents -- always with the aim of helping them reach their learning goals.

I mainly teach in Charlton/Westcombe Park area (SE7).
However, I sometimes also travel to students' homes. My rate varies slightly depending on travel requirements.
My weekly schedule varies as I am busiest during secondary school half-term and holidays.

At the moment I am available at various times during the week and weekends. Please get in touch for more details!
