Let me introduce myself! I am Atha and I am 36 years old. I am a native Greek teacher with a great love of teaching and meeting people from all around the world. I have been teaching either face to face or online for many years and this experience keeps making me, every time, a better and a more "rich" person. I believe that when you teach, when you meet students from different places, cultures, habits and backgrounds you have so many things to offer and at the same time so many things to gain from them. The interaction is amazing!!
Moreover, I fluently speak English, French, Spanish and a little Russian which helps me understand better the difficulties that a student faces when learning a new language. Sometimes, it helps me explain some grammatical phenomenas in the mother language of the student.
I got my Bachelor's Degree from the Aristote University of Thessaloniki with a specialisation in Teaching and Linguistics. Since then, I have been teaching Greek and French to students from all over the world and of different levels. I work either with adults or kids and every occasion, every course is really interesting.
I have participated in my seminars of Counselling, Online Teaching and Teaching Greek as a foreign / second language.I constantly get informed about new books, new pedagogical methods and anything that helps me become a better teacher and person.
The student is in the center of the course. The material used always depends on the interests, needs and level of each student. During class, I use flashcards, videos, songs, quizzes and anything that makes our course fun, enjoyable and successful at the same time.
I am very patient, good at encouraging and open minded.. I believe that the revision plays a very important role in learning a new language. The dominant language in our lessons is Greek. I strongly believe that when learning a foreign language you learn about this country's culture, history, habits, customs, current affairs... So everything is included.
