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.
Great lesson, very informative!
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!
