About Mar

My passion for teaching began when I was 16 years old and first volunteered to serve as a teacher in a children's hospital in my native Athens, Greece.
Since, I have gathered more than 3000 hours in classrooms teaching a variety of subjects to people from many different age groups. Whether in a school classroom, a college workshop or a private lesson, I enjoy meeting students and engaging in the fascinating process of mutual learning and exploring.

I am a born and raised Athenian, who has spent more than 1000 hours teaching Greek in England, the Netherlands and the US. I have a passion for the Greek language and I enjoy teaching not just the language but also the culture by incorporating into my lessons Greek music, food, history, mythology and local culture.

I am a writer and translator, and have often contributed with articles to international publications. I have taught Literature and Creative Writing to undergraduate students at New York University as an adjunct professor and served as a volunteer teacher for adolescents coming from challenging backgrounds, helping them improve their grades and language skills in as well as achieve their goals of entering the college of their choice.

Contact me to arrange a meeting where we can get to know each other, discuss my methods and your goals and decide whether we cam make a good much, that will achieve tangible results and have fun doing it.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Greek

I was born and raised in Athens and I have a passion for Greek language, culture, history, mythology and literature. I have gathered over 1000 hours of experience teaching Greek to children and adults around Europe and in the US. I enjoy incorporating cultural elements in my classes and lessons as I believe that learning a language shouldn't be dry and technical, but a fun, mind-expanding experience that cultivates to students real love and respect for the language and the culture.
