Native Greek tutor with 2 years experience! Let's make studying fun!

Methodology

My methods are always based on the student and the way they study, in order to help them understand more. Everyone learns different and that's okay! If the student does not have a preffered way then I usually work with explanatory slides, videos and every day situations so the student can feel more comfortable. I give out a lot of notes that can make studying easier!

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Ioanna will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

Hi everyone! I cant wait to be your new tutor! I am Joanna, I am Greek and have been living in the UK for the past 2 years. I have been tutoring greek for about 2 years now and have been helping International students become familiar with the language and the culture. I have various certificates in teaching foreign languages and my aim is to make students feel comfortable and have fun when speaking the language. My lessons are and will always be cheaper than everyone's cos I dont believe you should pay a fortune to learn something new! All I need from you is the passion to learn!

I was struggling with greek for a long time but she was so helpful. She's compassionate, flexible, and super chill.
After a few months I can speak decently and I'm hoping with some more tutoring and practice I'll do well for a monolingual person :D. Would definitely recommend!!!!

Interview with Ioanna

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Ioanna — I was born and raised in Greece before I moved to the United Kingdom at the age of 18! While Greek may be my native language, teaching it became a passion of mine when I met an amazing Greek history teacher back in middle school. She taught me that language is not just about grammar and vocabulary, it's about culture and knowledge. Languages may give us the opportunity to communicate with people from other countries but they should also be a journey into another country, where borders are nonexistent.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Ioanna — For those that aren't familiar with Ancient Greek Literature, Homer is a favourite writer of mine who is known for his work in Odyssey. The way his poems are written give me an exquisite view into Greek mythology and culture while the mixtures of dialects he uses are the blueprint of the modern greek that the world knows today. I find that extremely fascinating.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behavior in the language that you particularly like?
Ioanna — A famous phrase you might know is "Παν μέτρον άριστον". This means "Everything in moderation". I live by this as I believe that the perfection that some people seek lies within throwing greed away and having everything in moderation.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Ioanna — Greek is a very old language that I believe not a lot of people approach as it seems difficult or most of the times unapproachable due to the lack of teachers out there. I'd like to change that and give students a look into the culture and years of research that lies beneath the language we know today.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Ioanna — I've noticed that most people struggle with the alphabet which I completely understand. Greek is one of the few languages that use a completely different alphabet than any other language which makes it harder to start. The best way to approach this is to practice, practice, practice. Compare things you already know in english to it and make connections. That way you can remember details that are easy to forget.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Ioanna — Throughout my years in Greek schools, I always struggled with opinion essays. Most teachers said I was too bold, too realistic, sometimes had the reader ask themselves too many questions. There were some teachers that called me a failure or lazy. I couldn't help but believe those opinions, until I started University. Believing that I was terrible at essays I immediately signed up for tutoring so as to not get bad grades in assignments. My tutor said she couldn't help, said she loved my way of writing and thought I could make a really good teacher some day. I was shocked. She said my way of explaining was to the point while I always prompted the reader to think about the topic themselves. I had never thought about it that way. It taught me a huge lesson on perspective and different routes. There is no 1 solution in life.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Ioanna — But when I was still living in Greece I was very interested in visiting different villages and picking up dialects. It really helped me see all perspectives within the language and most interestingly, learn some new slang!
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Ioanna — To be a superprof in any language you need an incredible amount of passion, understanding and organisation. Your passion helps you strive for the greatest possible result and enables you to motivate your students every day. Understanding means knowing what it's like to learn a second or third language while also respecting the learner's age, or any learning difficulties they might be experiencing. Finally, organisation is key to providing flexibility and stability for your students while also being able to produce personalised lessons for each.
