Hi, I`m Alkyoni! I`ve been working as a tutor for the past thirteen years, teaching Greek to children and adults, and English as a Foreign Language to students and professionals.
My Undergraduate Degrees were in English and American Literature, and my studies enabled me to explore different interests in photography and writing, aspects of which have shaped me as an educator.
After completing my Postgraduate studies in Media and Film, I taught Greek and English to primary school students in London for six years. While in London, I also worked as a pre-school teacher at the Saint Sophia Greek school, where I designed and implemented a developmentally appropriate curriculum in Junior Kindergarten and instructed basic academic skills such as letter recognition and phonetic awareness of the Greek Language. I then worked as a Year-5 teacher at the same school, creating lesson plans, and teaching history, Greek and literature while integrating competencies and objectives into the lesson.
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 following Tests: ECCE, ECPE and IELTS as well as Greek (various 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. I am more than happy to arrange a time that would be suitable for both of us (preferably afternoons and evenings).
