About Me

I believe that learning a foreign language is not just a new way of communicating. It's a way to broaden one's horizons and to understand a different culture. It is a tool that helps us visit a foreign country, but also lets us understand how cultures are interconnected around basic human experiences.

Education

Master of Art in Film Studies at UCL (ongoing).
Master of Science in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh (2017).
Undergraduate in Communication, Media and Culture at Panteio University of Social and Political Science in Athens (2015).
Diploma in General and Specialized Translation from English to Greek at Hellenic American Union in Athens (2013).

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught English, French and Greek (as a second language) for two years. I teach in a structured, but alternative way using many sources because I believe that knowledge stays with us when it is connected to things that we love.

My name is Sophie, I am a Hispanic studies graduate with three years experience teaching EFL. Previously I have worked in a UK based FE institute delivering English classes and assignment support. However the majority of my teaching experience was gained in Spain, most recently working in an academy for teenagers and adults. I also have experience working in two primary schools, teaching a classroom of English teachers and providing guided tuition to students aged 7-24. As such my content was extremely varied and highly specified to the students individuals needs and goals. In March 2017 I completed my CELTA , achieving a PASS B grade. ​I have a true passion for teaching English to foreign students, arming them with the necessary tools to thrive in a multitude of environments. It is extremely gratifying to feel you have helped unlock so many doors to a student that may change their future.​​​​​ I have a recent DBS check and the ICPC certificate.
