About Athina

I am a passionate tutor of Greek (modern & ancient) and Latin with a bachelor's degree in Classical Philology from University of Athens and a master's degree in Greek Language and Literature (modern and ancient) from University of Cyprus. My mother tongue is Greek and I have extensive experience in teaching children and adults in both Greek and Latin. I can help you learn the modern Greek language in an enjoyable and effective way, combining the Greek civilization with everyday life. I can also help you learn Latin and prepare you for your tests. And I can certainly introduce you to the amazing world of Ancient Greek language, etymology and mythology. Together we can also discover the richness of Greek literature starting from Homer through Byzantine world to modern Greek writers and poets. I have developed a great curriculum for all ages using excellent teaching material, which has been proven to be extremely helpful for all of my students.
My goal as a tutor is to ensure that my students understand what is being taught to them and get inspired and motivated to go further with their education. I use a large amount of teaching material and I can adjust my teaching methods to your needs and pace of learning. I see tutoring as an amazing adventure for my students and me. I have a lot of patience and a smiling face.
