Su di me

I greatly enjoy breaking words down and explaining how my language works. I teach through context, exposing students to stories *very* early on, while sneakily increasing the amount of Greek spoken in class.
My students are encouraged to produce their own texts and utterances once they are able to read, and get trained to need me less and less. I like linguistic comparisons, capitalising on languages my students speak, and explaining Greek through familiar structures.

briefcaseEsperienza Lavorativa

2019 - 2020
Tutor and Proofreader for Academic English
Self-employed - Aberdeen, Scotland
Sharpening international students’ performance in postgrad essays, through teaching them how to structure an academic paper, employ English academic-writing patterns, and present their ideas succinctly and coherently, adhering to academic standards.
2014 - 2016
English Tutor
Self-employed - Athens, Greece
Tutoring Greek pre-teens at A2-B1, guiding them through etymology, context and essay writing. Resources included animated series, songs and video games, according to students' individual interests. Observing what Greek speakers struggled with when learning English, granted me a solid understanding of my native language. In my current path as a Greek teacher, this has enabled me to mitigate two common challenges in teaching one's own mother tongue: comprehending intuitively-learnt structures, and seeing them through a non-native perspective.
