Where and with whom did you train?
I trained as an English teacher in Athens and attained the Cambridge Certificate in English and the British Council teaching qualification. I then taught pupils from the age of 5-18 to enable them to gain their own English certificates.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Since coming to England, I have taught Greek privately to English speakers who were interested in acquiring knowledge of the Greek language for various purposes such as:

- Visiting Greece on holidays
- Purchasing property in Greece
- Those with Greek family & friends
- Working in Greece or with Greek people
- Entering themselves into Modern Greek Language exams
Do you have a personal message for students?
First of all, I am a sensitive listener. I am patient with excellent skills in conveying my knowledge to my students.

I focus on helping students to feel confident with the various aspects of the language without judging them, which helps people to learn in an encouraging environment.

I believe it is important that lessons are interactive and fun.

The lessons are customised to you the student according to your personal needs, so whether you are a complete beginner or already have a good understanding of the Modern Greek language, my Greek Lessons should be perfect for you.
