Hello everyone! My name is Penelope and I'm an experienced teacher of English as a foreign language. I have worked as a Greek tutor and English teacher with children and adults for more than 8 years. Teaching is my destiny and passion! I like meeting new students, setting goals with them and help them to achieve them.
I have the knowledge and a range of teaching skills and strategies needed to make a positive effect on pupils’ progress. My main goal is to motivate and inspire both myself and others to succeed. Being able to create a stable and fundamental relationship with my students, encourage them and reinforce their independence and self esteem.
I hold the Teaching Knowledge Test by Cambridge University, I have taken a lot of different courses about teaching English but the most important is my more than 10 year experience with children and adults of many different levels and cultural backgrounds. I will never stop educate myself and this is why I continue taking up new courses and seminars. I always want to improve myself and my teaching methods. I have also tutored a lot of my students for a variety of certificates. (IELTS, TOEIC, CPE, FCE).
Teaching is my passion and my moto is "Teach the way you want to be taught!" Ever since I started my career as a teacher I decided to become everything but a boring teacher. This is why I never stop considering myself as a student. I always try to keep in mind how I would imagine an interesting lesson to be if I were a student.
So I have committed myself to these things:
-maximizing students' performance
-inspiring students to express themselves during the lesson
-make the learning procedure fun and effective
-never stop studying in order to improve my teaching methods.
Prioritizing my students' motivation and skills, customizing my materials to each learner's needs, exposing my students to authentic materials and having the belief that learning a language has to be enjoyable is some of what I would like to offer you!
I hope you will book a trial lesson. Thank you!
