À propos de moi

*Please check my rates before booking a trial lesson*

Hello! Hola! !مرحبا Γειά σου! I'm Colette, a native English speaker and TESOL qualified teacher with over two years experience. I have a degree in English Literature and Sociology from the University of Leeds and before I was a teacher I worked as a journalist. I speak intermediate level Spanish and now I'm learning Arabic and Greek. I'm from the UK but live in Thessaloniki in Greece. avaliable

In less than two years I have taught a huge diversity of students from around the world with many different abilities. I have taught in refugee camps in Greece, where my students were predominantly from Arabic and Farsi speaking countries. So if you can't speak a word of English and don't know the latin alphabet, don't worry, I have plenty of experience teaching complete beginners.

I have also taught exam preparation for the IELTS, Cambridge, Trinity and Michigan exams. I have taught teenagers, to business English to conversation classes. Anything you are looking for I can create a unique learning package just for you. I will identify your problem areas, vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, speaking, listening, reading or writing and then create learning materials that target your needs.

I can also help you with accent reduction and proof reading of essays and papers.

My classes are fun, engaging, practical and inspiring! I always bring my enthusiasm for English into the classroom which is infectious, in no time you'll be chatting away, writing elegant pieces of English prose or maybe even reading Shakespeare!

So get in touch and book a trial lesson today! I look forward to meeting you.
