- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a native Greek speaker, who has worked as a linguist in Barcelona, Spain (2004-2009) and in London, UK (since 2011). I enjoy languages and I am dedicated, as a linguist, to the study of the universal and particular features they have. My approach to teaching has been informed by my theoretical research, which has helped me sharpen the methodology I use. I have elaborated rich material for all the levels I teach and I always seek to adapt it to the needs of every student, be it an adult or a child. I enjoy teaching, because it is a great opportunity to communicate with other people and share some knowledge in an exciting way!
