My background & experienceI have been teaching Greek as a Foreign or Second Language since I moved to UK (7 years ago). I am currently teaching adults at the International House of London, at Aspire Sussex Adult Education Centre, and at the Alexandria Institute in Athens. I also work as a teacher at the Greek School in Brighton. I am also the owner of the private tuition centre. I deliver one to one lessons and group lessons face to face and online, which help the students to develop communicative skills, reading and writing. Through my experience, I have developed my teaching techniques and I am able to adapt them to suit all students' needs.
My classes and teaching styleI have worked in various settings and managed to develop schemes of work and lesson plans in line with curriculum objectives. My experience can be summarised in the following: - Teaching children and adults Greek as a foreign or second language (one-to-one, group lessons, face-to-face and online lessons) - Teaching Greek as a Foreign Language at the International House of London and at the Alexandria Institute in Athens - Teaching Ancient Greek, Modern Greek and Greek Mythology in Aspire Sussex Adult Education Centre - Teaching Greek language and Culture at the Brighton Greek School - Teaching university students in groups and in private lessons (Ancient Greek language and literature, Latin, Modern Greek Language and literature, History, Philosophy, Ancient Drama, English) I am always open to my pupils' suggestions and I try to organise the learning session, according to their own needs and level. My lessons are always well structured according to my students' needs and expectations. Listening/speaking and reading/writing skills are developed through an interactive, productive and pleasant way. I use as much material as I can, in order to make the lesson enjoyable and interesting. I tend to emphasise on details, which can be helpful for people who seriously want to get involved with Greek. I try to speak Greek as much as possible, during the classes, because I believe it is the most effective way for someone to learn Greek easily and fastly, even if they don't speak a single word before the classes. In the end, I believe in the interaction between tutor and student. Learning is a dynamic and experientlal procedure for both of them. I have a very caring approach with all my students and I often discuss their progress with them and set new targets and challenges.
