I hold a BA degree in English and Greek Language and Literature (University of Athens, Greece) and an MA degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (University of Reading, UK). Given that you seek teachers who prove themselves keenly interested in helping students become high achievers at the same time being passionate about teaching, I believe my career profile will perfectly match your requirements. With over 25 years of experience in teaching various courses related to the English language, and having taught a range of students with varying English levels I possess effective teaching and organizational skills as well as the ability to motivate and direct my students towards learning and achieving desired goals. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build up confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially.
Currently I am working on the foundation course of the University of Coventry, London Campus which provides high quality pathway programmes to prepare international students for undergraduate study at the university.
I have also taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP)at both the University of Surrey and the University of Southampton. This post has been another landmark in my EAP teaching career. My field of teaching included English Writing and Reading to future postgraduate students, something that gave me insight in the academic requirements of students in tertiary education. The principal aims were to develop students confidence, fluency and accuracy in the four skills and to develop their communication skills, study skills and problem solving/analytical abilities to function effectively and efficiently at a postgraduate level.
I am also a professional Modern Greek tutor with profound experience of teaching Greek at all levels. During my studies in UK I was teaching Greek at the Greek Community Schools in London appointed by the Ministry of Education of Cyprus. Furthermore, I am delivering GCSE Modern Greek lessons to Greek adolescents born and bred in the UK. I have a real passion for teaching the language and I am very committed to my students language progress, placing great emphasis on their communicative skills. My lessons are always carefully prepared and fully student focused.
My colleagues but mostly my students have given me credit for creating constructive changes in students academic life by sharing with them my enthusiasm for teaching, proving myself sociable, team-spirited and devoted to my profession.
