    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 (2018).
    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.
    I have studied French for about ten years and I have spent a year in Paris. I have a degree in journalism and creative writing. My goal is to provide alternative and fun ways to learn the language (through conversation, songs, literature, history) alongside to the rules of grammar, syntax and spelling. I believe that the best way to learn a foreign language is through its culture. The lessons can be tailored to your needs and passions. We can work together on pronunciation, grammar, reading, listening, writing and speaking skills. We can meet at your convenience: in a library, coffee shop or Skype, wherever suits you best.

    Marianna
    Experienced Tutor of Italian and English as a Second language
    I am a tutor of Italian and English as a foreign/second language. I had the opportunity to teach in different contexts with multicultural groups of students from many countries and backgrounds. I am currently teaching Italian to individual students and corporate clients with different language requirements and purposes. I have also conducted a preparation course for Italian GCSE and A level exams in London. I teach to all levels and ages using a communicative and student-centred approach. My lessons are very interactive and focused on real life and cultural situations. I care about my students’ learning progress and achievements and I am keen to guide them in a friendly, dedicated and respectful manner. Moreover, one of my main goals as a teacher is to enable my students to enjoy the experience of communicating, thinking and reacting in a foreign language.

    Daniel Lopez
    Are you looking for help to write your essays? I am happy to help you!
    Hello, My name is Daniel López. I am a very passionate and creative teacher (English & Spanish) I have experience in different contexts and backgrounds (Teaching teenagers, and University students) I feel very lucky in the sense that I really love what I do. I love teaching!! I hold a Ba degree on TEFL (English Language Teaching), and and a Ma degree on TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at University of Leicester, England. Additionally, I must mention that I am strongly influenced by the CLT approach and critical thinking models. In other words, I consider that teaching a language must focus not only in grammar and vocabulary but also in communication and interaction. Therefore, speaking, pronunciation, and everything related to the phonological aspect of languages is my interest. Additionally, I would like to outstand the fact that I always work with clear purposes and organized lesson plans, and usually I create my own material in order to achieve specific purposes during the lesson, and because this allows me to be creative and accommodate any topic to your needs and interests. If you need any tutoring in this field, do not hesitate in contacting me! Have a great day.

    Private lessons in History-Geo, SES and English for the Baccalaureate ES
    Student at the London School of Economics (LSE) in History, I earned my Baccalaureate ES honors in 2016. I have always loved exchanging and transmitting what I learned. My mother is a teacher of German, I am immersed in the world of education since always. I started giving private lessons when I was in high school, and I continue today. I help academically and psychologically ES students in History-Geography, SES and English. I explain the course in detail (if necessary), and we work on the methodology for each event, the organization and the planning of the work to be done. For example, I started working with two students in high difficulty in April (overall average around 7-8 out of 20), and they just got their baccalaureate, including one with honors. I also worked with another student the year before, who earned the distinction Very Good (with 19/20 in SES).
