Justyna - Vienna, Austria35€
Trusted teacher: I am a native speaker of Greek. I graduated from a Greek high school and, later, the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and spelling. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Greek, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for state certificates such as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE). Regarding Ancient Greek, I can help you with commentaries/translations/grammar/syntax: - Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, - Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Sappho, - Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon.

By portraying an objective world, these epics open a window into the past. In many cases, they even provide a key to deciphering it. And the reverse is true as well, for our recorded epics pose a host of challenges to understanding that require insight into the history of religion, military practices, economy, seafaring and politics among others. To truly understand our epics, we must, however, consider the texts themselves. “Iliad” and “Odyssey” date back to the 8th century BCE. They mark not only the beginning of Greek literature but are at the same time a pinnacle of it. Greek culture laid the bedrock for all the major poetic domains in Europe, creating exemplary masterpieces of epic, lyric and dramatic poetry. “Iliad” and “Odyssey”, the greatest representatives of an otherwise mostly lost epic tradition, have in turn been the models for the whole of Greek literature, most notably for Greek lyric and the immensely influential dramatic poetry of 5th-century Athens. Hence, the reputation of their author as the father of European poetry is well-deserved. But who was this man? Homer, the fabled poet gifted the songs about an epic world by the Gods themselves, has been shrouded in mystery all along; and although he would become the greatest teacher of the Greek world, modern science attempted to relegate him – more precisely: his authorship of “Iliad” and “Odyssey” – to the realm of fable for good. With the so-called ‘Homeric question’ occupying the minds of philologists for over 200 years now, tremendous scientific, learned and, not least, enthusiastic effort has been mustered to explain all sorts of inconsistencies, oddities and obscurities contained within the 24 books of either epic poem. Even so the strictly authorial question proved ultimately to be a Danaidean tub, the furtherance in the understanding of both epics afforded by these debates is still invaluable. Anyone wishing to become acquainted with Homer’s great epics of the heroic and the cunning is well-advised to draw on their knowledge for guiding his or her own careful, critical and aesthetically conscious reading. This seminar intends to provide exactly that. According to the different composition of “Iliad” and “Odyssey”, we will proceed one or more books at a time. The aim will be the thorough understanding of the text at hand, for which purpose we will familiarise ourselves also with historical circumstances of pre- and post-Homeric times. As always, the seminar is meant for anyone from first beginner – be that in Homer, in Greek/European literature or in literature in general – to advanced ‘Homeride’. Depending on your interests, we can also include sessions on Homer’s influence on later Greek or modern literature, on his treatment in ancient poetics or modern literary theory and suchlike. You need not have any knowledge of ancient Greek, but if you are interested in it, important notions and phrases will be explained to you. In any case, the translation we choose will be discussed in such a way as to make the original text transparent to you. You might be surprised as to how great differences between the two can be, and as to what different languages can or simply cannot express.

Learn (modern) Greek for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion / (ancient) Greek for school and university
Justyna is a graduate of the University of Athens and she is very much qualified to deliver Greek courses. She has great teaching skills and more than 10 years of experience in teaching the Greek language. Her communication skills are also commendable, and she can find the appropriate way to establish a very effective communication with the pupil. She is very meticulous and attentive to detail and she speaks always in a positive tone. The quality of her work is impeccable, and she has also elaborated here own teaching material (for example, PowerPoint presentations) to facilitate the on-line courses. I was very much surprised to see that even the Greek sounds of letters in her PowerPoint file were created with her own voice! With regard to the online courses, she has also the right technical skills to use the various online tools and software (e.g. Google tools), something which is not evident when working with other teachers. She is very flexible in terms of the time of the courses and she is accepting the various time constraints which may derive from the day-to-day schedule of the pupil. She is always in time for her courses and very accessible as well as reliable concerning all the necessary arrangements. In terms of attitude, she is very enthusiastic, an element which has a great impact on the pupil to actively follow up her during the whole duration of the course. She is also very dynamic in the way she delivers the courses, and she does not forget to praise the pupil when necessary. She is always assertive, independently of the learning pace of the pupil. Last but not least, I think she has the right ratio of humour in her courses in order to make the one hour passing with her as pleasant as possible. I highly recommend her from my experience so far.
Greek lessons as a second language for adults and children (Glyfada)
Very pleasant and comfortable class. The instructor is highly experienced which is obvious as she was able to quickly adapt into various teaching techniques, and direct the flow of learning which best suits the student. Within the first two minutes, you get the vibe of a truly experienced teacher. No struggle or awkwardness at all; she could literally figure out your comprehension level spot on. If you’ve a serious interest in learning the Greek language, this is the teacher for you. Also very tech savvy for both iOS and Android platforms, we actually utilized both during the class. This instructor also knows how to troubleshoot, so if you’re not exactly too tech oriented, don’t let that stop you from signing up... excellent experience overall 10/10
