« Perfect! Katerina really is an exceptional tutor. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She is dedicated and enthusiastic about teaching and helping you make that progression. Every lesson has been well planned and she takes into account my own interests, strengths and weaknesses with the language and that has helped me tremendously.

Methodology

'Greek Reimagined' should be an accurate way to describe the content of the lessons I plan carefully for each of my students. All the materials (grammar, vocabulary, speaking and writing practice) are tailored around each student's needs and their goals. Starting from getting a good understanding of the phonetics and the Greek alphabet, using short, fun games like bingo and flashcards, the language lessons are taken from the strict structures of textbooks and presented in a more approachable way.

The students don't need to buy any books, as I provide detailed PowerPoint presentations, with audio recordings of texts and expressions, making studying as smooth as a learning process can be. Every week the student is given a homework sheet that is structured based on the material covered after each lesson and fitted to the needs of the student. If an exercise doesn't work for the student, I'm more than happy to change it, find the perfect way to be interesting and educative. I tend to avoid repetitive grammar and spelling exercises, as I believe that learning a language is not only about remembering by heart a list of rules. It can come organically through text, gradually getting more challenging as the student advances.

I am adaptable to my students' needs and pacing and respect their needs. I am willing to modify the lessons to fit their needs and goals and am often inspired by their own ideas in regard to the lesson, the flow, and material. Feedback is always welcome and much needed, as I am not an educator that will push my ideals to the student. I believe in communication and am glad to discuss alternative teaching methods. The spine of the lessons might be similar, but the presentation of the points to be covered can be adapted, formed to suit each student, taking into account how busy they are, what their goals and expectations are from the lessons, where they want to be in the future.

Experience

I am a Native Greek and have a Bachelor's degree in Education. I graduated first of my class in High School and was the valedictorian at my University's graduation.

As far as tutoring Greek is concerned, I have long experience in a variety of students' ages and levels, the speed they acquire the language, the different ways they learn. I have worked with absolute beginners and intermediate level students, students that work towards getting degrees in Greek. I am a trained educator, specialized in 1-to-1 lessons online, making use of online platforms, and bringing the classroom experience through the internet.

For students aiming at getting their degree in Modern Greek, I have extensive knowledge of the syllabus and the books that might be required in order to succeed in a degree, and I am always using real references, articles, literature, make use of translation where needed, in order to grasp the idea of the Greek language, and not just understanding the grammar, spelling, and syntax.

Perfect! Katerina is a dedicated teacher. She always prepares thorough lessons and adapts them to my interests and level. We both have quite busy schedules and I can’t thank her enough for being so flexible and available, especially outside of our lessons.

I have to mention that she is extremely patient as well and that she makes it a real pleasure to learn Greek. We were even able to have some practice in Athens recently making me realise how much my oral skills have improved in a year with her!

Ευχαρηστώ πάρα πολύ!

Katerina is very organized, structured and always very well prepared for the lessons. She sends homework to prepare in advance for the next lesson and is able to explain very well the particularities of the Japanese language. On the other hand she is flexible and can adapt the lesson immediately to the needs of the student. I really enjoy my lessons with her and would recommend her any time!
