 Penelope always puts an extra effort in trying to make you understand new words first rather than just giving you a translation. She adds a lot of extra materials on top of the few exercises in the book and gives a lot of homework to practice at home. She is an excellent teacher.

 Penelope spends a lot of time on preparation of the classes, we follow a book but she adds a lot of extras like grammar & vocabulary exercises, listening or quiz to practice and test my skills. She is a wonderful teacher, highly recommended.

 Very good capacity to explain new grammar and vocabulary, she always tries to do as much as possible directly in Greek, using simple words and phrases. We do a lot of practice, both in the class and i get lots of exercises to do at home as well. She is a really great teacher.

About me - English

Hello! My name is Penelope, I am 35 years old and I am a Greek language teacher.

I live in Athens and I am a teacher since 2004. I love teaching and especially teaching the Greek language to foreigners. I know that learning Greek can be tough, but I believe that with my help it can be enjoying and easy!

Qualifications & Experience

I have studied Greek Philology at the University of Athens (2000-2004).

I also received a master degree in “Teaching Modern Greek as a second / foreign language” from the University of Athens (2014-2016).

I speak Greek (native speaker), English (fluently) and German (adequately).

I have worked as a teacher since 2004.

Since 2014 I have been teaching Greek as a foreign language at a private institution in Athens. I also give lessons via Skype.

Teaching Approach

During my lessons I try to combine all four aspects of language learning (reading, listening, writing and speaking). I believe that all four skills should be equally exercised in order to learn a language effectively.

However, it is often required to adjust the balance to meet each student's needs and learning profile. Proper exercises and communication activities are incorporated to facilitate an extended vocabulary.
