Qualified English teacher, with over six years of experience, delivers online English lessons

Methodology

During my past experience I have adjusted to a wide range of different environments, and have built excellent communication with my students. I have always valued empathy, as well as respect for every student's individuality and personalised needs. I try to embody that in my teaching by including a great variety of different, customised activities, suitable for different types of learners. Apart from following a well-organised syllabus, I emphasise on the importance of meaningful tasks in which the English Language is used creatively, as a means communication.

Experience

I am a qualified teacher and professional musician, with over six years of continuous experience, in a classroom, as well as working with smaller groups and offering personalised, one to one lessons. I have taught English and Music lessons to children, young adults, and mature students. I am trained in using different teaching techniques, ensuring that I maintain an environment where students can be motivated to achieve their goals and fulfill their potential.

WORK EXPERIENCE

JAN 2017 –
JUN 2019 PIANO ACCOMPANIST
Rika Tsitsopoulou School of Ballet, Thessaloniki, Greece
• In this leading school of Ballet, which offered Classical and Contemporary Ballet lessons to students from the age of 4, to dancers over 18 years old, I was responsible for the selection of repertoire, adapting to the variety of the Ballet exercises, as well as the different level of each class
• I transcribed by ear assigned songs from a wide range of repertoire (from classical Ballet Suites, to different period Piano or Orchestra music, or transcribed contemporary or traditional/folk music )

SEP 2015 –
JUN 2019 ENGLISH TEACHER
Private Tutoring, Thessaloniki, Greece
• I taught English as a Second Language to young students, 8-15 years old, at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, and to adults of various ages at Beginner and Upper Intermediate levels;
• I drafted the syllabi based on Situational Language Teaching textbooks and, without a textbook, based on Communicative and Multiple Intelligences projects;
• I incorporated original and customised activities (Communicative, Total Physical Response, Task Based)
• I ensured that the students were motivated to participate and study, through meaningful tasks (as mentioned above), encouraging them to use the English Language creatively, as a means of communication, play, and expression, rather than adapting to a passive role of receiving and memorising information
• As a result, students were able to reach their full potential in Language comprehension and production, and were also inspired to engage actively in the learning process, both during the lesson and at home.

APR 2016 TRANSLATOR
Platon Consultants S.A., Thessaloniki, Greece
• I translated complex financial documents (income statements, balance sheets, investment planning) (Greek to English);
• I translated and edited advertisements for various Protected Designation of Origin and Protected Geographical Indication products of Greek companies (Greek to English), as part of a project aiming to attract and increase funding and investments.

NOV 2014–
FEB 2015 PRACTICAL TRAINING IN TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE
Model Experimental School of the University Of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece
• I observed teaching and kept record of observation reports, each focusing on a different aspect of the teaching process (e.g. Classroom management, Use of Teaching Aids, Pace and Variety of the lesson, Teacher’s Body language and Posture, Lesson Preparation)
• I organised lesson plans and activities for delivery in class
• I carried out lessons in a Secondary School class (S2), while being evaluated by the class teacher
• I kept records of reflective reports, which I filed both before and after each lesson, reflecting on my preparation and conduct of the lesson
• I built a detailed Practical Training portfolio representing the whole process, which was monitored by the assigned School of English A.U.Th. professor.

SEP 2013 – JAN 2014, SEP 2015 – JUN 2016 PRACTICAL TRAINING IN PIANO TEACHING
Municipal Conservatory of Edessa – Mousiko Collegio Conservatory of Thessaloniki, Edessa – Thessaloniki, Greece
• I was responsible for 3 students and their entire preparation for their exams on “Piano as a Second Instrument”. My responsibilities included
• The selection of their repertoire according to an assigned syllabus and each student’s abilities, strengths, and preferences
• Teaching the characteristics of each period and composer (Baroque to Contemporary), while cultivating the personal freedom permitted to each student in the artistic result
• Helping in the improvement of the students’ technical skills by guiding their practice so as to both overcome technical difficulties and be able to include their interpretation of each piece into their performance
• The preparation for their final examination (practice in the preparatory process of a performance which included mock recitals, techniques that help in managing stage fright/maintaining focus, performance-oriented studying)
• All 3 students successfully passed their exams with distinction.
