ABOUT THE TEACHER
I live in Greece, a few miles away from the capital, Athens. I have been a professional tutor of Greek (my first language) and English (my second language) as well as a certified translator and proofreader for over 25 years. I have always wanted to give people the best I can, so teaching seemed like an ideal option to me. I love music and singing, and I often go trekking on the mountain where I live.
1. BA (very good), Department of English and Greek Language and Philology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, 1990
2. Translation Certificate (English > Greek and Greek > English), Global Translation Institute, 2012
I have taught Greek and English in various private schools in the Athens area as well as online to students from various countries and industry backgrounds in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. I conduct my lessons on a special teleconference platform that offers me the possibility of uploading and handling audio and video files, as well as almost all other files. The student is exposed to and uses the language from the very first lesson. I treat language as a tool that helps people to communicate and express their everyday needs, rather than as system of rigid rules. I use a wide variety of teaching materials ranging from course books to stories, newspaper articles, videos and songs.
