À propos de moi

Hello my-students-to-be and those not-going-to-be !!ūüėÄ Let me start by sharing some general information about myself ...I am a native speaker of English and Greek. I was born in Boston, USA , was raised in Greece. I have been teaching for the past 5 years, both adults and kids in tutoring classes or one to one. I am of the belief that people should enjoy what they are doing in order to learn it, so I try to add as much interaction as possible, on topics which interest my students. I believe I have succeeded as a tutor when I see my students enjoy what they are doing and send me messages or call me in order to inform me that they understood a movie without reading subtitles or taking part in an English conversation with others and not facing a problem. That's all for now, you can pm me for more questions or book a trial. Talk to you later or bye !! ūüėÄūüėÄūüėÄ
