« Adamantini is the best tutor. Not only as a tutor but a very respectful person. When we first spoke we started at that moment to improve the assignment. She is by far the best choice. She is accurate and knows her stuff. She will not create any problems but only solve problems. For me, Adamantini gave me guidance and explain things in the simplest way so i could understand everything. We had only 2 weeks and she was by my side all this time until the deadline. My only mistake was not to get in touch with her earlier so i could embrace more of her knowledge. »

QUALIFIED Enthusiastic English, Spanish and Greek Teacher based in East London!

Methodology

My teaching method is primarily communicative. I will ensure that the students are encouraged to use the language as much as possible during the lesson! Student's knowledge is then enhanced through activities and exercises which help to better understand anything new covered.

Ambassador

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

Experience

I started teaching in 2016 after completing a BA Honours degree in English Language and Linguistics at Newcastle University, England. I also hold an MSc in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from The University of Edinburgh.

Upon the completion of my studies I worked for a year in Madrid, Spain where I was teaching Business English at a company as well as general English to young children in a language academy. After my year in Madrid I also taught at a primary school in Cyprus for a year. Apart from English, I also have experience in teaching Greek and Spanish up to an intermediate level.

I am a passionate and enthusiastic language teacher eager to provide creative, engaging and immersive learning experiences for my students.

As a foreigner, English is not my first language. Yet I have decided to study in England. However, I was struggling a little during the first year, but I didn't want to give up, hence I looked for help. I was fortunate enough to have Adamantini recommended to me by a friend.

Adamantini started helping me with the university work whenever I needed her, and since she was super helpful, I kept using her expertise throughout all 3 years. Her help was crucial in my understanding of essay structuring, methodology and critical review of literature.

Without her, I am certain I would not have achieved a First Class grade for my degree. This review does little justice to her. I really can't recommend her enough.

Adamantini was my English tutor helping me prepare for the IELTS when I was in high school. She was recommended to me by the school and tutored with her for a year.

We usually went over the essays I wrote as part of my preparation, spotting grammar mistakes and helping me identify where my style needed improvement. She also assigned me essays with specific themes in order to develop my thinking and condition me for the actual exam. In addition to essay writing, we worked on reading comprehension, speaking and listening exercises, which were all parts of the examination.

Adamantini was a wonderful tutor, not only for the wealth of knowledge she posses and her mastery of the English (and Greek) language, but also because tutoring with her never felt like a chore, and it was something I was looking forward to.

My experience with Adamantini was truly great! She's a really patient and supporting teacher. During the lessons I could really feel her enthusiasm and experience in teaching. She helped me a lot to improve my english level!

Interview with Adamantini

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Adamantini — I grew up in a family surrounded by teachers...so definitely that is where it all started... :) Since I was a student I attended a bilingual school (Greek & English) and I was always intrigued by languages, language learning and teaching.

During my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I was also introduced to the world of academic research which I absolutely loved. Hence, I took the decision to offer private classes in Greek and English as well as in Critical Thinking and Thesis preparation as I would like to share my knowledge with my students and make them love languages and research as much as I do :)
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Adamantini — When it comes to the language classes I teach (English and Greek) I always like to spend some time on communicative skills. The topics I like involve daily topics, in other words, things that happen everyday in our lives. In this way, I believe that it becomes easier for the students to use the target language more. For more advanced levels, I always like to discuss topics that are interesting for my students. If a student loves football, then let`s talk about football..if a student likes music..then the topic will be related to music and so on.

I really enjoy discussing about anyyy topic, as long as my students find it interesting :)
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Adamantini — A role model for me was certainly my aunt, as she owns a language school. I always admired her work as a teacher and the impact she had on her students' lives...which is what I am hoping to achieve in the future too
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Adamantini — A teacher needs to be able to understand the needs of her students and to be able to easily adjust to those needs and interests. I would say that patience, organizational and communication skills are of utmost importance when it comes to teaching.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Adamantini — A funny story was many years ago when during our English class at school when one of my French classmates was trying to tell us that she hates cockroaches, but instead said: "I ate them"...It took me 2 or 3 minutes to realise that French people cannot pronounce the H and that she actually meant: I hate them.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Adamantini — The most difficult thing when it comes to language learning, is to overcome the anxiety of actually speaking the language, to overcome the fear of making mistakes. Apart from English and Greek I also speak German and Spanish and many times I also fall into the trap of being afraid to use the language especially in front of native speakers. However, I always push myself to speak about any topic in one of those languages even though I might feel that my vocabulary is not the best...and this is what I always try to do with my students too :)

When it comes to research on the other hand, I would say that the most difficult challenge is to actually understand the basic concepts of research. Once, this is achieved, writing up your thesis will be a piece of cake :)
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Adamantini — My passion is travelling...getting to know new cultures and new languages. I lived for 6 years in England, 1 year in Scotland and 1 year in Spain. I love being surrounded by people from different backgrounds as it always makes me feel that I have so much to learn from people who come from different backgrounds. Teaching, which is my other passion, enables me to transfer my passion for languages and cultures to my students :)
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
Adamantini — Almost 4 years of English and Greek language teaching experience...I worked in schools, private academies with young students as well as adults. I have experience in teaching groups as well as private classes and various academic levels.

I consider myself a superprof in terms of Thesis preparation and research skills because I hold two Master's degrees and for both master's I was awarded for my research skills. Specifically, I received an award for achieving the highest grade for my Master's thesis. I can definitely pass on my knowledge to anyone who is going through the process of writing up their thesis or a research paper.
