Kensington Tutor

I am a QTS qualified, native-Greek speaking teacher with BA in Primary Education and MA in Special Needs(University of Nottingham). I have strong theoretical knowledge and confidence in my practice.
I always devote time researching extensively into specialist bibliography and seek every opportunity to undertake further training in order to achieve my teaching duties.

Tutoring Experience

I have seven years teaching experience in Primary schools in Greece, Greek Community Schools in the U.K. and in private tuitions. I have been teaching Greek as a Second Language and as a Foreign Language at all levels, from primary students to adult learners with various literacy backgrounds. I am confronted with the challenge to help bilingual and English speaking students build confidence in expressing themselves in Greek and motivate them to become active learners.

Tutoring Approach

I plan my teaching taking into account special educational needs, cultural background and emotional considerations. I always implement effective intervention plans tailored to my students' individual needs. I prepare educational material and interactive exercises based on modern communicative approaches in order to develop my students' language skills.
I organise my lesson plans in creative and inspiring ways using drama as educational tool. I believe in drama as a way of learners' language acquisition, as it helps them get engaged in communication situations with cultural and social dimensions.
