Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: JAN 2017 JUN 2019 PIANO ACCOMPANIST (Rika Tsitsopoulou School of Ballet, Thessaloniki, Greece)
In this leading school of Ballet, which offered Classical and Contemporary Ballet lessons to students from the age of 4, to dancers over 18 years old, I was responsible for the selection of repertoire, adapting to the variety of the Ballet exercises, as well as the different level of each class
I transcribed by ear assigned songs from a wide range of repertoire (from classical Ballet Suites, to different period Piano or Orchestra music, or transcribed contemporary or traditional/folk music )
SEP 2015 JUN 2019 ENGLISH TEACHER (Private Tutoring, Thessaloniki, Greece)
I taught English as a Second Language to young students, 8-15 years old, at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, and to adults of various ages at Beginner and Upper Intermediate levels;
I ensured that the students were motivated to participate and study, through meaningful tasks (as mentioned above), encouraging them to use the English Language creatively, as a means of communication, play, and expression, rather than adapting to a passive role of receiving and memorising information
As a result, students were able to reach their full potential in Language comprehension and production, and were also inspired to engage actively in the learning process, both during the lesson and at home.

All 3 students successfully passed their exams with distinction.
