Gavriil Ioannis

Birmingham Tutor

My name is Gavriil Ioannis, I am a graduated Historian from Greece and a native Greek speaker. I studied History and Ethnology at the Democritus University of Thrace, and I graduated first of my class two years ago, with honours. For years, I was offering private auxiliary lessons in both Greek and History, to students in Greece. However, last year I moved to the UK, in order to start postgraduate studies (MA in Byzantine Studies, University of Birmingham), to improve my knowledge and excel in History. At the same time, I keep providing lessons not only to Greek but also to British students.

Tutoring Experience

I have 3 years of experience as a private tutor in Greece where I used to offer lessons in Modern and Ancient Greek and in History, to High School students.
I was offering private ancillary lessons to primary school children, teaching them how to speak, read and write in Greek, properly.
I was working as an intern in museums in Greece where I was teaching History and Material Culture to primary school students of multicultural minorities who live in Greece.

I provide lessons:
~in Greek/Byzantine/Medieval History.
~ Greek (Ancient, Medieval-Byzantine and Modern) by using historical texts and sources in order to help the students to understand better each aspect of Greek in its context.
~in Greek Palaeography to university students by using rich teaching material from my research and working background.

Tutoring Approach

As a creative and dedicated instructor who skillfully uses the appropriate educational tools to engage students in the learning experience, building their knowledge in a pleasant and positive teaching environment, I utilise my skills to the benefit of my students.
In addition, the fact that I am a well educated native Greek speaker, who has lived in Greece, can work as an asset in the teaching process.
The tutoring approach is flexible and it depends on the students' age and the reason why they want to learn History or Greek.
