About me

Hello everyone, I am Eleni and I come from Greece. It has always been a pleasure for me to communicate with different people from all over the world. When I was a student, I had participated at ERASMUS program in Portugal, which I totally enjoyed. It was one of the strongest experience in my life. In general, I am a funny and sociable person.

Qualifications & Experience

I got my Bachelor's Degree in School of Philosophy at University of Crete in 2003. Since then, I've been successfully teaching Modern Greek to Greek pupils of all levels. I started teaching Greek Language and History to adult foreigners on January 2011 and I must say it is very interesting experience so far. So, that's why I am here. I believe I can help someone to get started with Greek and go on and on... :)

I would also like to mention that I have participated in several seminars on Special education and Counselling/Psychotherapy, which have helped improve myself and my teaching methods.

Teaching Approach

I am always open to my pupils' suggestions and I try to organize the learning session, according to their own needs and level. I use as much material as I can, in order to make the lesson enjoyable and interesting. I tend to emphasize 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 adynamic and experientlal procedure for both of them.

Eleni is an excellent teacher, and she manages to teach the language in very natural way. I'm impressed with how much I've been able to advance in so little time with Eleni. I would highly recommend her to anyone studying Greek.

Eleni is a great teacher and her lessons are interesting and very effective. She is motivating and gives clear explanations of the Greek language. I'm feeling a real sense of progress and I'm really looking forward to more lessons!
