I have a bachelor degree in English with a concentration in Education. Since moving to Europe 19 years ago, I have worked with students of all ages as well as adults. All of them have received their certifications in English such as the Michigan University exams ECPE, ECCE, as well as the Cambridge University exams CPE, and FCE For Schools, and the TOEFL. I have also received the Michigan proficiency. My experience has proved to me that students are not the only ones that learn but also the tutor from the students. I love tutoring and I look forward to meeting you.
I am a dedicated and experienced tutor in ESL as well as Greek. I love tutoring children as well as adults. I am fluent in the English as well as the Greek language. Since graduating with my bachelor's degree in English with a concentration in Education, I have 19 years of ESL teaching experience. All of my students have received excellent education. My students have received their certificates in English such as FCE, CPE, ECCE, ECPE as well as TOEFL. I have attended seminars which have certified me as a tutor for these subjects. All my students have loved having lessons with me, as they have told me that their learning experience has been, not only educating, but also fun.
I have tutored students for 6 years in Greece who had come into the country, with little or no knowledge of the Greek language, with excellent results. My school-aged students have been fully mainstreamed in school, while the adults have had success in obtaining language learning certifications which led to their employment. I use methods that are appropriate for each age, ways that the students can relate too, as each student is unique. My lessons are clear, to the point as well as being an enjoyable learning experience. I haven't received any formal certifications, but my experience has made me an expert in tutoring Greek.
