Über Mich

Hello!¡Hola!Ciao a tutti! I am a certified language teacher from Athens and I hold an English-language M.A in Language Education & Technology as well as a B.A Hons in Spanish & Russian from Pavia University, Italy. I have more than 12 years of language teaching experience. Moreover, I am an excellent user of the English language (CPE) as well and a holder of the UK QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) that qualifies me to teach in maintained and non-maintained special schools in England. I began teaching Spanish, Italian & Greek for foreigners in 2005. I would love to help you with your learning goals in Greek!

A little about me:

-I have more than 12 years of experience teaching adult conversation classes, international teaching experience (teacher, tutor & translator) offering lessons of Greek Language & Culture by using English, Spanish & Italian as bridge languages (native speaker level). Since 2010, I am also an examiner (speaking assessment) for the National Foreign Language Certificate in Greece.

-I have lived and worked for 7 years in the Italian city of Pavia, Northern Italy and one year in Santander, Spain.

-As the difficult part of learning a language is to be able to "think and feel" in this language, I am not directly teaching grammar rules unless you ask me to. With me, you will learn the language through ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT. In fact, I apply the EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING method (teaching Greek through role-plays & everyday situations) and I widely use technology in my teaching in order to make my lessons more enticing and effective (i.e. teaching through songs' lyrics, film segments etc.).

-Being a life-long learner myself (in fact I keep on learning languages) I am a firm supporter of democratic, student-centered language learning environments, so I pay very much attention to your specific requirements (whether these are communicative or academic). I am an empathetic teacher and I will stimulate your self-esteem in your Greek skills. Being an enthusiastic teacher as well, I am highly motivated in working in online telecollaborative language learning settings and participate in intercultural exchanges.

-I can also offer you precious (non-mainstream) tourist advice in case you are traveling to Athens! Contact me even if you are an absolute beginner!!!

P.S. I am available evening and morning hours, under arrangement. Flexible schedule. Feel free to contact me and arrange a lesson at your convenience!
