« Dimitra has been teaching my two children, aged 7 and 4, for a year. She is always reliable and full of ideas of ways to engage the children in learning Greek. Although they are 3 years apart and have different interests and attention spans, Dimitra finds fun ways of teaching them that work for both. Their vocabulary, knowledge of the alphabet and understanding of the language have all improved and they enjoy their lessons. »

I am a native Greek speaker, who has worked as a linguist in Barcelona, Spain (2004-2009) and in London, UK (since 2011). I enjoy languages and I am dedicated, as a linguist, to the study of the universal and particular features they have. My approach to teaching has been informed by my theoretical research, which has helped me sharpen the methodology I use. I have elaborated rich material for all the levels I teach and I always seek to adapt it to the needs of every student, be it an adult or a child. I enjoy teaching, because it is a great opportunity to communicate with other people and share some knowledge in an exciting way!

Dimitra has been teaching my two children, aged 7 and 4, for a year. She is always reliable and full of ideas of ways to engage the children in learning Greek. Although they are 3 years apart and have different interests and attention spans, Dimitra finds fun ways of teaching them that work for both. Their vocabulary, knowledge of the alphabet and understanding of the language have all improved and they enjoy their lessons.

I have been having weekly tutorials with Dimitra for about 4 months now, and am thoroughly enjoying them! Dimitra is a fun and professional teacher who tailors the lessons perfectly to my ability. I feel that I'm making really good progress and her extensive knowledge of linguistics provides really interesting insights into the roots of the new words I'm learning. I have been very happy with our lessons and would wholeheartedly recommend Dimitra to others interested in learning or improving their Greek.

Elena

Dimitra is an excellent teacher whose background in linguistics, in my mind, gives her extra strengths as a teacher, beyond her general preparedness and friendly and thorough approach. I have struggled with other teachers and classes in the past but my Greek has improved greatly working with Dimitra and I thoroughly recommend her.
