About me

Hello everyone!

I am Zoe and I am 26 years old. I am a linguist by profession and a Greek Language teacher by passion. Language acquisition is a fascinating experience and I adore being part of it! I offer online lessons, as well as Greek language & culture lessons during holidays in Greece.

I love everything that brings me into contact with different cultural backgrounds: travelling, reading, listening to music, and of course teaching Greek!

Qualifications & Experience

I was always fond of languages, literature and teaching, so I decided to study at the School of Philosophy (Department of Philology and Linguistics) in Thessaloniki. I got my Bachelor's Degree in 2008 and I decided to combine my profession as a language tutor with further master education. In 2014 I visited the University of Reading as an Erasmus student and I had the chance to teach Greek to British adults. I am currently working on my research concerning second language acquisition and innovative language teaching techniques.

I have worked as a teacher in Greek public schools, teaching Greek to bilingual children who acquired Greek as their second language. I have also contributed to the writing of Greek language textbooks in collaboration with an academic research group. I have been teaching Greek as a second/foreign language to foreigners in an immigrant center in Thessaloniki since 2009.

I am currently working with refugees who acquire Greek as their second language.

Teaching Approach

Tutoring is equivalent to communication and in order for teaching to be effective, it must also make learning a truly interesting and enjoyable experience. My lessons focus on the special needs and interests of my students. The activities, the subjects and the texts of the lessons can be a common decision.

Grammar learning is a headache for many Greek language students. I provide you with meaningful grammar exercises, coming from my personal material that is based on innovative grammar teaching techniques, suitable for every learning type.

If you are interested in getting acquainted with the Greek cultural and historical background, this lesson is suitable for you. Greek movies, literature and music are an integral part of my lesson.

Is it still all Greek to you?

I highly recommend Zoe. Today's lesson was very thorough and well planned in advance. l had very good feedback and she helped me a lot with my pronunciation. I am gaining in confidence and starting to recognise letters to enable me to read.

Zoe explains everything thoroughly, clearly and is excellent in motivating positively. She helped me step by step with the alphabet, with my pronunciation and l am now well on my way to beginning to recognise letters and associate them with sounds.
