Hello! My name is Sophia and I live in Athens.
I teach Modern Greek to foreigners in Athens and also via Skype. I love meeting new people and especially foreigners. I also love travelling!
I have completed my bachelor studies in "Modern Greek Language and Literature" at the university of Athens and I have a masters degree in "Teaching Modern Greek as a Second / Foreign Language". I also attended seminars and conferences related to foreign language teaching and learning.
During my postgraduate studies, I had the opportunity to work at the modern Greek language teaching centre of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. I also taught Modern Greek to embassies and companies.
I am currently teaching Greek to foreigners at a private institution and I also give private lessons (via skype and live in person).
My teaching approach is basically communicative. I try to help my students to develop communicative skills by teaching them the use of vocabulary and grammar.
Sometimes I use traditional methods as well. My lessons are adjusted to student's level, needs, interests and learning styles.
Sophia continues to exceed our expectations. She's very patient and understanding with my teenage son, and she continues to keep him motivated and interested in the Greek language with her skills and expertise. My son is lucky to be taught by her.
I think my tutor will meet my needs very well; seems flexible, imaginative, intelligent, competent, professional, has sense of humor.
Another great class, Sophia is always prepared for my class and pushing me. Thank you
Thanks, a great class... :)
