About Me

Hello everyone, I am Eleni and I come from Greece. I am here, because I believe I can help you get started with Greek and proceed with your learning experience as far as you wish.

I got my Bachelor's Degree in Greek Philology, School of Philosophy, at University of Athens in 2006. Since then, I've been successfully teaching Modern Greek to Greek pupils of all levels. I started teaching Greek Language and History to adult foreigners in 2013 and I must say it has been a very interesting experience so far. It has always been a pleasure for me to communicate with different people from all over the world.
I would also like to mention that I have participated in several seminars on Special Education, which have helped me improve myself and my teaching methods.

A trial lesson/ meeting is the best way to get started: for me, obtaining information regarding your needs and your level, the time you want to invest in your learning, your interests etc ,are required for a tailor- made course!
Afterwards, I try to organize the learning session, according to your needs. I use as much material, tools and techniques, as I can, in order to make the lesson enjoyable and interesting. Students are kindly asked to access the class using their computer. Smart phones and tablets are not advised as interaction through these devices is very limited.
Gradually, Greek is mostly spoken during the classes, because I believe it is the most effective, easy and fast way for someone to learn Greek. I never stop thinking of new ways to maximize my students’ potentials and make the lesson interesting and efficient!
