I will make the SAT fun and manageable for my students, so that they can get the highest possible score. I studied IT Science and Communication Studies.

ACT English

I received extensive training in tutoring both ACT and SAT test strategies. While I have been trained to tutor all core subjects, tutoring English has always brought me the greatest joy in life. Through my years working as a tutor, I have found that each individual student is different and so to speak there are different ways and methods to instruct and approach students. Punctuation, grammar, usage, and sentence structure are basic elements of the ACT English Tests. I hold a Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE). One very important second thing for passing successfully the ACT English Tests involve strategy and organization. If we work together, and if you are doing the required homework after hour sessions, I guarantee you the best results possible.

Greek

I was born in Greece. I started teaching Greek from a very young age. I use unique methods to teach the Greek Language since each student has preferences in terms of which way to choose in order to become familiar with the language. Some students need more practice in their reading skills. So I am always tailoring my lesson plans differently for each student taking under consideration where are the weaknesses. I believe that if the lesson has important relevance to you the learning process will be smooth. I am highly skilled tutor since Greek is my first language and I can assure you that not only you will learn how to communicate in Greek but we will also discover how colorful and descriptive the Greek language can be!
