Hello everyone and Welcome!
My name is Angeliki and I live in Athens, Greece.
Education is my passion.
Maxim: Live and Learn, Socrates.
After completing my Bachelor's degree in Education, I continued my studies in the University of Birmingham in England.There, I obtained a Master's degree in Education (MA in Education,TEFL).
Soon after, I started teaching English as a Foreign Language and Greek as a Foreign Language, since I am bilingual. Two years ago, I completed an online course, offered by Harvard University in the USA, called ‘Leaders of Learning’ which opened up new doors for me.
I have been a language teacher for more than 19 years. I have student teaching experience at all levels of Education, both online and in the classroom.
My students achieve very High Success Rates in their exams. I have assisted in the Development, Instruction and Curriculum Design of many language courses in schools across Europe. I am an E. U. certified teacher and I specialise in all British Council exams, including IELTS, which is so popular among people who wish to study or work abroad.
My mission is to instil my passion for education and learning in my students and see them excel. That is the ultimate goal for a teacher!
It will be my great pleasure and honour to meet you all, in one of my classes.

I have been teaching for 17 years and I have student teaching experience on almost every level of Education, in both suburban and urban school environments. I have pursued every available opportunity to teach. I have assisted in the development and instruction of many English and Greek language courses in Greek schools.
My interest in Teaching, Research and extensive knowledge of the latest developments in Education, in general, make me the ideal teacher for anyone who is truly interested in learning both English and Greek as a foreign language.
I have worked and graduated from the University of Birmingham in the U.K. where I obtained an officially recognised Master of Arts (MA) in Education. Also, I am a graduate from the University of Patras, Education Department, in Greece.
The mentoring and teaching skills I have developed throughout my teaching career have had a positive impact on the life choices of my students. In short, my mission is to in-still and impart my passion for education to students in such a way that it contributes to the entire community.
Always open to my students' suggestions, I teach according to the pace of my students and their needs. I am inventive, creative, nurturing and most of all, patient.
Some of the teaching methods/approaches I use are the following:
• the communicative approach
• the task-based language teaching method
