About me

Hello! My name is Sophia and I am a professional instructor of Greek as a Second/Foreign Language. I teach Modern Greek to foreigners in Athens and Cyprus and also via Skype. I love meeting new people and especially foreigners. I also love traveling!

Qualifications & Experience

I have completed my bachelor studies in "Modern Greek Language and Literature" at the University of Athens and I hold a masters degree in "Teaching Modern Greek as a Second / Foreign Language". I am currently working on my PhD thesis in Greek as a Second Language. I have attended seminars and conferences related to foreign language teaching and learning and I have also presented and published my own work on teaching techniques and practices in Greek as a Second Language.

During my postgraduate studies, I had the opportunity to work at the modern Greek language teaching center of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. After I completed my studies, I worked with various audiences in private schools, embassies, and programs for immigrants in Greece. I am now a part-time Greek Language Instructor for foreigners at the University of Cyprus and I am also giving lessons via SKYPE.

Teaching Approach

My teaching approach is basically communicative. My main goal is to help my students develop communicative skills by teaching them the use of vocabulary and grammar in context. I use traditional methods as well where needed. I use various teaching materials and I have also developed my own based on my teaching experience in various settings and my academic background. My lessons are always adjusted to student's level, needs, interests and learning style.

I have been studying twice a week all summer with Sophia focusing on conversation and I have learned so much! She is a really effective teacher, and speaks to me at a somewhat normal rate, which I really appreciate even if I don't understand everything. She uses lots of materials (photographs, listening exercises, specific topics) to elicit conversation. She also has made up extra flashcards and tests that I can do at my own pace to keep up with new vocabulary. I really like how she creates a google doc with each lesson so I can go back and study the new vocabulary. She is finishing her doctorate in teaching Greek and it really shows with her high level of knowledge and professionalism.
