Modern Greek Tutor Based In Coulsdon & On-Line For Adult Beginners, Improvers or Intermediate

Methodology

I am a native Greek speaker, born and bred in Athens. I am also fluent in English and have lived in England since 2000.

I have successfully taught adults & children since 1986.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Modern Greek from beginner to intermediate level including GCSE.

My lessons are tailored to you so whether you want to learn conversational Greek for holidays or if you would like to gain a qualification, my lessons are perfect for you.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

British Council in Athens (1986) – Teacher Training Certificate

Cambridge University (1985) – Proficiency Certificate of English

- How much do you charge?

I charge £29 per hour and recommend lessons last 90 minutes to 2 hours to gain the most of our time together.

- Where do you teach?

Lessons are held in my office in Coulsdon town centre. Coulsdon is part of the London Borough of Croydon and is easily accessible by train/bus or car from South London & Surrey.

I also give lessons on-line using Skype, Messenger or Face Time.

Past and present students have come from Croydon, Purley, Reigate, Banstead, Caterham, Dorking, Sutton, Wimbledon, Kingston, Surbiton, Clapham, Streatham, Forest Hill, Sydenham, Westerham, West Wickham, Sanderstead, Kenley, Whyteleafe, Redhill, Bletchley, Warlingham & Wallington.

On-Line students have come from Essex, Sussex, London, Kent, Dorset & Cambridgeshire.

I am available weekday daytime or evening. I can also accommodate some weekends by arrangement.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Beginners up to intermediate of any age.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages Levels A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 & C2

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

On-line tutoring is available via Skype, Messenger & Face Time with all lesson materials e-mailed beforehand.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

First of all, I am a sensitive listener. I am patient with excellent skills in conveying my knowledge to my students.

I focus on helping students to feel confident with the various aspects of the language without judging them, which helps people to learn in an encouraging environment.

I believe it is important that lessons are interactive and fun.

The lessons are customised to you the student according to your personal needs, so whether you are a complete beginner or already have a good understanding of the Modern Greek language, my Greek Lessons should be perfect for you.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught English in Greek language schools from 1986-2000 and also held private tuition classes whilst living in Athens. Since coming to England I have taught many students from the Croydon, Surrey and South London areas.

All of my students in Greece attained good examination results in English and every student that I have taught in England has progressed very well in line with their goals.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Not any more.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained as an English teacher in Athens and attained the Cambridge Certificate in English and the British Council teaching qualification. I then taught pupils from the age of 5-18 to enable them to gain their own English certificates.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Since coming to England, I have taught Greek privately to English speakers who were interested in acquiring knowledge of the Greek language for various purposes such as:

- Visiting Greece on holidays
- Purchasing property in Greece
- Those with Greek family & friends
- Working in Greece or with Greek people
- Entering themselves into Modern Greek Language exams

I have been learning Greek with Rania for nearly two years now. It that time I have made a lot of progress. As our lessons have gone on, we have dealt with more complex aspects of grammar, spent more time speaking Greek to each other, and exploring a wider range of topics.

Rania clearly puts so much time into planning lessons and homework tasks, and they are always well-structured and rewarding.

Rania is an excellent tutor and makes learning Greek interesting and fun. She puts you at ease and is always encouraging.

I have had 12 lessons so far and my friends in Greece have been impressed at my progress and the way I have been taught the basics in the correct manner. I still have a long way to go but I am confident Rania will get me to where I want to be.

I would highly recommend Rania to anyone wishing to learn Greek.

Ralph

I bought a property in Cyprus and wanted to learn Greek so that I could converse with the locals.

I was quite nervous about starting to learn in my mid forties, but Rania quickly de-mystified the learning process for me and within three months I was fluent enough to be understood when in Cyprus and able to do all of my shopping in Greek.

I would thoroughly recommend Rania to anybody wanting to learn Greek quickly.
