About MARINA

Being a native-Greek speaker and having worked as an English and Greek teacher for the past 14 years has provided me with a great amount of knowledge and experience on teaching.

My students have been of a wide range, from total beginners to advanced students who just want to improve their knowledge on everyday spoken Greek or business Greek.

I would call my language style interactive focusing more on speaking and building a vocabulary using grammar through examples.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

After graduating from High school in Athens and completing my 2-year studies on Applied Arts I started teaching English to children at a language school.

I instantly fell in love with my students and the whole idea of passing my knowledge to others.So,I attended various seminars and courses on teaching English as a Foreign language and moved on to mostly teaching adults.

I started organizing special ESL training programs that multinational companies would offer to their employees.

Here I mostly tutor NY newcomers as I like to call them! Besides helping my students achieve fluency I am also learning from their different cultural backgrounds.

Greek

Besides teaching English to Greeks I also taught Greek to foreign executives who had been assigned to work in Greece for some time.

For the past 6 years that I've been in New York, I have been teaching Greek to adults and children and I am surprised how the Greek language can charm even the ones who are not of Greek descent.

Spanish

Being half Mexican was the reason I initially fell in love with Spanish and all the culture related.
Then I studied for several years,at the Cervantes institute in Athens and I have been travelling to different Spanish speaking countries like Spain, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
I am involved as a volunteer in the Hispanic community here in NYC and I have been teaching Spanish to elderly people and children.
