Information about Alkyoni
Hi there! My name is Alkyoni and I have been working as a tutor for fifteen years, teaching English and Greek to children and adults of different levels and abilities.
My undergraduate studies in English and American Literature (National University of Athens), enabled me to explore various research interests and further helped shape me as an educator.
After completing my postgraduate studies in Media and Film (University of Roehampton, Queen Mary University of London respectively), I worked as a private tutor supporting KS1-KS4 pupils in both Greek and English in London for six years. I also worked as a pre-school teacher at the Saint Sophia Greek school, where I designed and implemented a developmentally appropriate curriculum for Junior Kindergarten to support pupil progression. I then worked as a Year 5 teacher at the same school, creating lesson plans, and teaching history, Greek, and literature, differentiating resources for optimum learning and results.
Since 2010, I have been working as a private tutor to teenagers and adults. For the last seven years I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language, focusing on the ECCE, ECPE and IELTS tests, as well as Greek (all levels).
I am dedicated to helping students advance their language skills, enrich their vocabulary, and improve their writing at their own pace.
Availability: As a freelance translator and writer, my schedule varies and can be adjusted. I am more than happy to arrange a time that would be suitable for both of us.
Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: - Greek lessons to adults and children
- Preparation for the Michigan Certificates of Competency (ECCE) and Proficiency (ECPE), as well as the Cambridge English Advanced (CAE) and Proficiency (CPE) exams, and the IELTS Test
- provide assistance with academic essay writing (across different levels)
