Information about Afrodite
Currently working at a Primary independent school in Balham, I have been teaching KS2 & KS3 classes for approximately 10 years. During this time, I have had to organise and prepare the curriculum to make sure it matched the learning objectives as well as tailor the lessons per each studentâs needs meaning I have experience working with a variety of students in mainstream as well as SEND schools.
I have attended various seminars, workshops and courses regarding SEN students (Dyslexia, Autism & ADHD) and have been using various resources in classroom, to help improve existing teaching and learning methods and make lessons interesting and students can feel more motivated to participate. For this purpose, I have also created a portfolio with resources I made myself which I happily share with other teachers all over the world.
I have taught History, Social Studies, Humanities, English and Mathematics (including Numicon method) to students aged 7-17 and I am confident handling different age groups. The years Iâve spent in the educational system have equipped me with invaluable insight regarding emergency situations and how to properly deal with them. I have mentored and coached students with their work on various school projects and have participated with them in Math competitions as well as English poetry and literature or essay writing ones. I have prepared students for their EFL final exams with the universities of Cambridge, and Michigan also, with the British Council and Pearson Edexcel. I am an active member and contributor of the Hellenic American un ion association and the City & Guilds Education Group.
