    Individual lessons and tutoring in ancient Greek

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Did you choose to study Greek in college or university, but struggling to get by? Or are you passionate about Antiquity and want to learn an ancient language, but you don't know where to start? I am here to help you: I offer individual lessons (material provided by me) as well as tutoring (help with homework, revision ...) in ancient Greek for students of all levels. The approach that I propose is as serious as it is creative, and my learning methods are adapted to the needs and preferences of each one. Whether reading Homer or translating fairy tales from French to Greek, I will be happy to give you a taste for this language and the richness of ancient Greece.

    I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in ancient Greek, and I have been giving lessons and tutoring in this branch since 2015.

    PLEASE NOTE: I do not teach modern Greek.

    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I am passionate about modern and ancient languages, and I want to instill the same passion in others. Focused above all on the relationship I create with my students, I adapt my teaching methods to their individual needs, and when the opportunity arises, I take pleasure in integrating their personal interests into my lessons: for example reading excerpts from Greek comedies with a teenager who wants to become an actor, or talking in German about bicycles with a cyclist. I do not hesitate to use visual or auditory aids to enrich the lesson and stimulate the interest of my students.

    Special needs (autism, ADHD, dyslexia ...): I had the chance to teach several adolescents and adults with special needs, which I have always approached with seriousness and sensitivity. I gladly take into account the specific experiences, preferences and difficulties of you or your child in my lessons.

    Education

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I obtained my university bachelor's degree in ancient Greek and Mesopotamian studies in 2018, and my university master's degree in antiquity sciences with specialization in ancient Greek in 2021.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I have been giving lessons and rehearsals in English and German since 2010, and in ancient Greek since 2015. English and French are my mother tongues, and I speak German fluently, among other things thanks to a bilingual gymnasium maturity and to a one-year exchange in Munich.
    I offer tutoring (help with homework, revision, oral practice ...) in German and English, for children, adolescents and adults of all levels. The approach that I propose is as serious as it is creative, and my learning methods are adapted to the needs and preferences of each one. Whether reading Goethe or discussing movies in English, I will be happy to motivate you or your child to study these languages. English is my mother tongue, and I speak German fluently (among other things thanks to a bilingual high school diploma and a one-year exchange that I did in Munich). I have been offering tutoring in these two languages since 2010.

    Private lessons in Latin - Greek - ancient culture - Hebrew
    If you want to learn the secrets of French, its complicated spelling, its sometimes obscure grammar, the history of its vocabulary ... do Latin (and Greek!)! Moreover, a Latin course is compulsory at the University when studying Romanesque diapers (French, Italian, Spanish, etc.), ancient history and archeology. At the same time, you will discover the foundations of our civilization which has deep roots in Antiquity. I taught Latin and Greek in secondary 1 (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and 2 in the cantons of Vaud and Geneva: I can help prepare for exams.

    Répétitoires de grec pour les premières/deuxièmes du collège
    Les premières années de grec au collège sont souvent compliquées. Malgré sa beauté, la langue grecque est un véritable martyr grammatical si l'on ne base pas son apprentissage sur de solides bases. Je suis donc là pour vous expliquer les notions que vous peinez à saisir ainsi que quelque bases de civilisation, toujours mise en relation avec du texte.

    Greek Lessons for all levels (A1-C2) taught by a native speaker
    Hello everybody! My name is Dora. I am from Thessaloniki, Greece and I live in Maastricht, Netherlands. I graduated from the Department of Philology with a specialization in Classics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. With the four-month Erasmus internship as a teacher of Greek language at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, I had the opportunity to gain teaching experience and interact with people of different cultural background. It improved my communication skills and boosted my self-confidence and, also, gave me the chance to realise the importance of digital media in education. I speak Greek, English and French. All the educational material is provided by me! I am looking forward to meeting you!

    Spiros

    I have been teaching Greek and Latin to students of secondary education successfully for the last twenty years. I have attained Bachelor Classical Greek and Latin Language and Literature, in National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. In addition, I have gained Master (Ma) in Pedagogical Psychology and Educational Act in Harokopio University of Athens.

Also, I am a very reliable, communicative and sociable person, willing to co operate with multicultural people.

Furthermore, experience in education has helped me to develop very good relationships with the parents of my students and co-operate with them.

    Learn (modern) Greek for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion / (ancient) Greek for school and university
    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.

    Latin and Ancient Greek classes via immersive method that bring both joy and language proficiency
    This cource will be perfect for people who would like to gain knowledge in Classical curriculum disciplines as well as for those who intends to develope their command of Latin and Ancient Greek. It goes without saying, that classes are always adjusted to a student's needs. However, considering tremendous results of students who were thought through the Natural (Immersive / Spoken) Method, I tend to promote it and include at least some parts of it to each class. I have been teaching Latin and Ancient Greek for four years. During that period I have worked with a number of students of differents ages and goals.

    Oxbridge Classics Admission Application and Test Coaching
    Applications for Classics at Oxford and Cambridge both involve a language assessment, for which I provide expert tutoring and guidance in as a first-class Classics and English graduate from Oxford. Classics at Oxford uses the Classics Admissions Test (CAT) for Course I (for students with Latin/Greek to A Level) or the Classical Language Aptitude Test (CLAT) for Course II (for students without Latin/Greek) to decide who will be invited for interview. At Cambridge only candidates shortlisted for interview will be required to take such assessment, which will be a translation exercise for the 3-year course, or a language aptitude interview for the 4-year. All assessments involve careful application of linguistic knowledge, whether of classical languages or English, which I will ensure you are extremely well-prepared to do. Applicants are also required to submit two pieces of written work prior to interview, which I am able to advise about if requested.
