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.

My kids really enjoy their lessons with Sophia. She tailors the lesson to their age and level which makes it fun for them. They are making steady progress as well.

Sophia is an excellent teacher. She was flexible and was able to tailor a learning plan for me ahead of my trip to Greece. Sophia is very professional, always prepared with materials appropriate for my level and interest. She has the necessary teaching and linguistics skills and is very encouraging toward her students. I advanced my understanding of Greek and had fun too!

Started Greek lessons knowing nothing at all. Now I can read, write, hold conversations, find my way around and communicate on many topics. I would recommend Sophia to anyone.

I have now taken about 35 classes with Sophia I think and I am still finding her lessons incredibly helpful!
