I have always been passionate about teaching others. I particularly love the fact that a teacher can help transform other people’s lives in a very meaningful and powerful way. For most of my career, I have taught English to students of different age groups and levels. Being a native Greek, I have always enjoyed teaching my students where many words with a Greek etymology came from. When I met my husband, he wanted to learn Greek, and I decided to teach him. I quickly discovered how refreshing it felt for me to teach other people Greek. This inspired me to switch to teaching Greek to adults. In my courses, in addition to teaching the language, I enjoy talking about the Greek culture, the people, and Greek cuisine. I like to bring those elements into the classroom to bring the material to life. For me, learning a language does not just involve gaining knowledge, it involves immersing yourself in a new culture and seeing the country and its people in a new light.
