As a Qualified Greek Language Teacher(native speaker) (QTS/UK), I have 14 years of experience teaching Classical and Modern Greek in both classrooms and one-on-one sessions.

Methodology

From day one, my students notice the improvement in their abilities and overall comprehension. Each student has a unique learning style, and it’s my duty to find out what that is and adapt my lessons accordingly. Through my years of experience, I have gained the reputation to guarantee great results, and the skills to get my students to excel in a variety of subjects.
I teach students with a wide array of skill levels. Through my unique and personalized approach, my students are able to develop study habits and effective learning strategies that last. My greatest joy is watching students succeed and unlock their own potential. Contact me today to find out how I can help you achieve your academic goals.

Background

In regards to my teaching experience, I have worked in various settings and managed to develop schemes of work and lesson plans in line with curriculum objectives, including the successful inclusion of special education students in the general classroom. I constantly strive to develop and improve cognitive and verbal reasoning to enhance learning, according to age, ability and aptitude. Being energetic and versatile, I have managed to implement creative and interactive teaching methods, which resulted in improving classroom engagement by using multimedia animation, art and visual learning techniques. Throughout my career, I have managed to create a respectful environment between parents, students and teaching staff. My dedication, inborn patience as well as my ability to work effectively with adolescents, have earned me considerable success over the years. I have constantly contributed to high academic performance, with 75% annual success rate at National Examinations, during which my students achieved top academic performance. In addition, I was awarded for taking the initiative to effectively prepare students and coordinate our participation in the annual Youth Parliament competition at a national level. Moreover, I have always challenged students to think critically and improved their knowledge by assigning demanding research projects so that they are adequately equipped for university life.
Looking to excel in a specific academic area and need a bit of one-on-one guidance from a reliable professional? Sometimes all it takes to really understand the material is a considerate instructor who knows how to teach at your pace. Having worked with students since 2005, I bring a depth of professional experience and knowledge to those who are eager to expand their minds, talents, and skills. I offer quality, personalized service at affordable prices.
