A Picture Of My Experience and Teaching Interests
My Teaching Plan For You
This year I wish to streamline my time and energy so as to teach my own children more comfortably in the evenings. That's why I've decided to concentrate on the Greek time zone and university students who can do online lessons with me in the mornings.
My years of success in training students for exams and preparing them to study in Britain and elsewhere, makes this a practical solution for me and a wonderful opportunity for YOU.

How Does Online Learning Work?

I can teach you privately one-to-one or in groups via skype, google hangouts or in a virtual classroom. All you need is a microphone. You don't need any knowledge of technology as I have a very simple system. I have access to whiteboards and I create multi-media, digital materials. I can scan traditional learning materials onto the screen, use authentic Cambridge ESOL online books, practice tests and my own materials.
Apart from live online lessons, we also have a simple learning management system where I offer 24/7 learning support. For example, we can work with google docs in between lessons to share your essays or exercises and edit documents together.
My prices are reasonable as I've been working with students for years and we can make flexible arrangements.
