« Katerina is very organized, structured and always very well prepared for the lessons. She sends homework to prepare in advance for the next lesson and is able to explain very well the particularities of the Japanese language. On the other hand she is flexible and can adapt the lesson immediately to the needs of the student. I really enjoy my lessons with her and would recommend her any time! »

Why not learn Japanese, one of the most fascinating languages in the world? Let's make Japanese an exciting journey through pop culture and philosophy, not just learning a foreign language! We'll prep

Methodology

I prefer to offer 2h lessons that use dialogue, images and videos, real life references and information and that also helps understand the practical part of the lesson (from learning the letters and grammatical rules, to preparing for the JLPT test). I believe that translation is the best means to achieve language comprehension, be it in the form of manga, songs, literature, poetry or whatever the student is most familiar with.

I am adaptable to my students' needs and pacing and respect their needs. I am willing to modify the lessons to fit their needs and goals and am often isnpired by their own ideas in regard to the lesson, the flow and material.

I currently offer lessons to beginners (JLPT N5 & N4) and the next levels are to be taught in the future.

Experience

I have completed my Master's Degree course in 2017, studying 'Translation Science' and have worked on a global-based research on Manga Translation (Japanese Comics Translation) and the preservation of the Japanese Language-specific elements. As a vigorous student of Japanese for the last five years, I can say that I have dedicated my life to in-depth-learning of the language and what surrounds it (culture, philosophy, habits, manners), translating manga and poems in English and Greek (my native language).

I have been tutoring adults since September 2017 and many of my students are excited to continue learning Japanese and visiting Japan, after getting familiar with not only the writing, reading and speaking skills the aquired, but also the peripheral knowledge of a culture that is so different from the western.
