About me

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!

Qualifications & Experience

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).

Teaching Approach

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 amaze me with her teaching skills and abilities. After only 6 months, my 14-yr-old son is able to understand most Greek conversations, and is beginning to converse back. She's able to keep him motivated, a hard task with a teen!

Learning with Sofia is always interesting, the topic can be hard and challenging but she finds a way to teach in a way that makes an impression. She is very easy going which helps to not feel inhibited while learning a new language.

My first lesson with Sophia was awesome. I really enjoyed the approach she took with the lesson, and I learned a great deal based on her feedback and tailored exercises. I certainly look forward to more lessons with Sophia!
