Native Greek speaker gives Greek lessons to primary and secondary students as well as adults who want to aquire the basics of the language and culture and a bit more! Based in Cardiff.

Methodology

Hi, my name is Athena and I am a native Greek speaker. I teach anyone who is planning to go on holidays or moving to Greece! I also teach children who have a Greek background and would like to be more proficient in the use of the language.

My teaching depends on the age of the student, it can be anything from play oriented to a seminar!

I have been qualified to teach art and I work in education as a supply for so long I have lost count!

Experience

I have been teaching Greek on and off. I used to do it more often before my daughter was born (6 years ago!) and I would like to start again. I have taught three students on and off. I do not teach to students who want to reach certain qualifications but more for the pleasure of learning Greek!
