About Me

I was born in Budapest, Hungary and I spent most of my childhood years there, with some time also spent in the USA where part of my family lives.

At the age of 19, I moved to the UK to pursue my higher education. At age 26, I decided to leave London and move to Southeast Asia to work there as an English teacher. I spent the following 7 years mostly in Thailand - with a half-a-year detour in Nepal - teaching English at various schools and organisations.

In 2019, I decided to move back to Europe, and since then, I have started focusing more on teaching adults and delving deeper into the world of online teaching.

Besides education and English teaching, I occasionally also work as a translator, mostly in subtitle translation.

I find linguistics and language acquisition truly fascinating, and I am incredibly grateful for having had the opportunity not only to teach people from various linguistic backgrounds but also to experience it first-hand as a language learner.

Teaching is not only my profession but also my passion. I find something deeply rewarding in the process of helping people learn and via the learning process bloom and gain confidence.

I decided to become an English language teacher as a direct consequence of my experiences in my personal education and life. I understand the challenges and negative effects certain teaching methods and learning environments can have on learners, as well as the difficulties of moving to a new country and culture where one doesn't understand the language. I've personally prepared for and successfully passed the Cambridge English, IELTS and TOIEC tests, university entrance exams and countless job interviews in different countries. Throughout these experiences, I have learnt the importance of understanding one's own learning style and preferred learning methods and the value of having a good teacher to mentor and support us through our learning journey.

Modern Greek lessons with the most efficient and easy way. ONLINE CLASSES AVAILABLE !
This class is for foreigners living in Athens, Greece, that want to learn the basics (and more) of the Greek language for various reasons like business, curiosity to explore the greek language, communicating better with loved ones etc.. You will learn how to understand, listen, read and speak this complicated yet interesting and historic language. I focus a lot on the greek pronunciation and grammar, since those are the sections most foreigners struggle with. Along with the language, you will also learn many ancient greek words, because the modern greek language derives from the ancient greek and the grammar is closely related to it. Last but not least, you will be teached some things about the greek culture and history and if asked, you could learn about greek urban dictionary. I started gaining experience by volunteeringly teaching it to my foreign friends and to refugees since I was 16 years old. Moreover, the fact that I took many language classes growing up ( french, japanese, spanish, english), and still do, helped me learn new patterns from my teachers and apply them in my classes. BA in Political Science and History (Panteion University of Athens) I provide notes to my students. Communicate with me on Apprentus.

Coach - Public Speaking // Public Speaking // Public Speaking
ENGLISH BELOW Do you feel insecure when speaking in front of groups? Do you feel you could have more fun speaking in front of groups? Are you afraid that the content of what you say will be lost? Many people find it quite difficult to speak in front of groups. You may have heard the advice 'imagine everyone's in their underpants', but it didn't help (or you probably won't be reading this text). Maybe you don't find public speaking all that difficult or scary, but you think you can get a lot more out of it. I would like to help you become a better, more relaxed and open speaker. The coaching is completely tailored to your needs and needs, but we work, for example, on preparing, analyzing and/or writing a text, body posture and language, use of voice and empathy. I was trained as an actress and singer, two subjects that give me a lot of baggage and inspiration when coaching public speaking. I have more than 8 years of experience as a coach and teacher. /// I specialize in coaching individuals in how to present themselves on stage or before a group. My goal is to focus on your own specific goals and help you develop your skills. Whether you need to speak in public for work or school, or just want to get rid of stage fright before giving that wedding speech, I can help you better yourself and gain confidence! We work on different levels: analyzing and/or writing text, performing, body language and voice. I have a strong background in singing and acting and have been working as a teacher, coach and director for over years.
