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.

Sophia is very energetic and creative in her teaching methods. She uses several teaching modes. Her lessons are always prepared and adopt to the student reality. Her homework requests are not overwhelming.

Despite us working on the HARDEST and most boring unit, Sophia made the class so much fun! :)

Sophia is a very energetic teacher, her classes are never boring. She always finds the way to present the topic in the best possible way. Never I had a feeling after her class,that I didn't understand something or some information was missing.
