About Argiro

I have been a teacher since 2007 after graduating with my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education English; within this time, I have worked with a wide range of student skills, levels, needs, and interests, so I have a proven track record of meeting the needs of diverse learners.

My teaching experiences focus predominantly in teaching middle school, however, I also have experience teaching elementary and high school levels and tutoring college students. I currently teach 8th grade Reading, Language Arts, and ESL, enabling students to improve their skills in the reading, writing, listening, and speaking domains of the English language. In addition to working with English Language Learners, I also have experience working with high-needs students and students with special needs, providing them with targeted reading comprehension, fluency, and writing interventions that help improve their overall literacy.

I am a certified teacher in grades 6-12 in the areas of Language Arts/English, ESL, and Speech/Theatre, and I am highly qualified by the state of Illinois in the areas of ESL, English, Reading, Literature, Writing, Speech, and Theatre. My experiences in the instruction of literature and composition make me a highly qualified tutor and educator. I also have obtained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with ESL, which has led me to writing curriculum in my former and current school, where I am the curriculum writer for my grade level. It is also my responsibility to differentiate the curriculum to meet the needs of diverse learners with varying needs.

I am a fluent speaker of the Greek language and use my ESL background and strategies to teach children and adults the language. I have graduated from Greek Lyceum and have native language background, so I am fluent in speaking, reading, writing, and listening. I also have learning materials directly from Greece that are beneficial to learning the language.

My experiences in the instruction of literature, composition, and language – combined with my dedication, work ethic, and strong interpersonal interactions – are guaranteed to help you. As with everything I do and with all my students, I am committed to help you learn and grow. Please contact me at your convenience to discuss how my qualifications best meet your needs and to get started with your tutoring!
