English Language Teacher for IB, personal development and just out of curiosity to learn English!

Methodology

My teaching method is mainly communicative. I believe that the most learners use the language the more they get it. Life ifamiliar with it. Life exists both in books and aside them, so why learning a language should be only attached to books?

Experience

I am an English Language Teacher, living in Greece. I studied English Language and Literature. I was working in England for the past year and now I am back to Athens. Being an English learner my self I am capable of delivering effective, personalized lessons.

Work Experience
• March - May 2018 Academics Intern in EF International Language School, Brighton, UK
As an Academic Intern I developed my problem-solving and customer support skills since I was dealing with students’ inquiries.
• October - February 2017, Evrognosi Private English School, Thessaloniki
I was responsible for the Computer lab of the School, so students from Elementary A to Pre-Lower Level were engaging with English Language through e-books and exercises on the PCs. I learned how to adopt the teaching materials to each student's needs and level and how to search for new input.
• April - June 2017, Teaching Practice at an Elementary School in Thessaloniki
I taught children of the fourth and fifth Grade. Through creative activities and fun games not only students learned English in a better way, but also, I learned how to be a better teacher implementing innovative methods. I became more creative and I learned to organize better my lesson plan.
• June 2016, Super Course ELT Publishing
Worked in Publishing, editing English course books on different levels. It was very interesting to discover how a course book is written and how each writer chooses the appropriate material. I learned how to become more specific and to pay attention to details.
