Detailed Profile in English

About me

My name is Alexia and I am a native greek language instructor. Born and raised on the island of Kefalonia, I have lived and worked in Athens and Thessaloniki teaching Modern and Ancient Greek to native and non-native speakers since 2007. I am an experienced, friendly and patient teacher with a strong academic background. I LOVE my students and they love me too!

I am committed in teaching and recently I created a youtube channel where you can find online grammar and vocabulary lessons, listenings, songs, poems and series: https://www.youtube.com/c/greeklessonsonlinevideos

In my free time I enjoy anything that has to do with art, crafts and photography. I like travelling and being creative. So far I have travelled in many different countries in Western Europe, the Balkans, Africa, South America and Asia.

Qualifications & Experience

I hold a BA in Greek language and history from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, a postgraduate diploma in special education and child's psychology from the University of Thessaly, and a master's degree in educational psychology from Nicosia University. In addition, I received a certificate for the teaching of Modern Greek as a foreign/second language from the Greek Language Centre in Thessaloniki.

Through my intensive studies, I identified and developed teaching methods tailored to students’ ages, backgrounds, knowledge levels, cognitive development, emotional intelligence and learning challenges. My professional expertise and years’ of experience enable me to create individualized lesson plans that best support each student’s learning style, helping them overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.

I teach in verbal planet since 2014 and I must admit that the experience is more than rewarding!! I highly regard the opportunity to transfer my knowledge to people all around the world, through cognitive and emotional interaction!

Teaching Approach

I take a student-centered, interactive teaching approach, with emphasis on speaking and listening skills. I use concrete examples and real-life situations to help my students understand how the Greek language works and how to apply it to their own experience. Highly focused, attuned to my students’ needs, and expert in a range of teaching strategies I try at all times to adjust my lessons as necessary to sustain my student’s progress.

Well-organized and thorough, I maintain the highest level of professionalism. I use a variety of teaching materials, which I update constantly. My book, “Learn Greek: Advanced Grammar”, will be published soon.

Learning a language should be an exciting, satisfying adventure, offering the learner the unparalleled opportunity to become immersed in a culture and its customs. My student-centered teaching methods, honed over 12 years and tailored to online learning, allow me to share my deep knowledge and love of the Greek language and culture with people all over the world.

Alexia is a tremendously talented teacher. I have taken Modern Greek lessons my entire life and I have never had a more gifted, more professional tutor. Alexia has not only a deep knowledge of Greek, but even more importantly she understands how people learn. She ably assesses a learner’s level and designs a customized lesson plan reflecting his or her goals. Alexia creates a safe, supportive learning environment that integrates incremental challenges, allowing a student to develop at his or her own speed. Working this way, Alexia ensures her students gain confidence in their abilities

I had my first lesson on Monday with Alexia and we discussed exactly what level/end goal I want to achieve from the lessons, as well as my current level, and than proceeded to go over the alphabet. I had been having a hard time getting the Greek alphabet to stick, but I am a lot more confident with it even after only one lesson. I am looking forward to many more in the future! 😀

It was so good to be back to Greek lessons after summer break. Thank you, Alexia, for your patience and good humour. I remembered more that I had anticipated and look forward to more Greek.
