italki teacher since Jul 31, 2022
I have been born and raised in Cyprus and my native language is Greek. I am a BA Hons French and German graduate. I am now pursuing a Master's Degree in Intepretation and Translation. I have developped a passion for foreign languages since a very young age, which only grew bigger when I have started taking French private lessons. I have a long-term passion for my mother tongue, Greek, which has also been enlarged when I had entered high school education and majored in Ancient Greek, Greek, Latin and History. I have a few favourite Greek poets and Greek authors which include: Kostas Montis, Kostas Tahtsis and Odysseas Elytis. In my free time I love to read Greek poetry and novels.
Me as a Teacher
I want to transmit the passion and love I have for my mother tongue to other people from all over the globe, who may have developed a passion for the Greek language due to a visit to Greece or Cyprus, or by reading Greek mythology and Greek literature in a foreign language. I will be open to lead discussions with you, of which the difficulty and complexity will be decided according to language level of each of you. I can correct your pronunciation and give you tips on how to better pronounce words, as well as correct your spelling and grammar mistakes. I can teach you vocabulary and Greek slang, as well as role play in order to help you prepare for real life coversations with Greeks.
My lessons & teaching style
I will be adapting my syllabus and teaching materials according to the needs of each of you. For instance, if you prefer to focus on your oral skills, I will be aiming at giving you the best opportunity to practice with a native speaker and enhance your vocabulary by teaching you phrases frequently used by Greeks and providing you vocabulary lists at each lesson. I want to make my classes as fun and pleasant as possible, while always providing valuable knowledge to you, and most importantly provide practical experience which will enable you to speak, write and read as fluently as possible.

Theodora has been great. Each class seemed to zip by.
Being Cypriot she could explain many of the colloquialisms that are not unavailable in textbooks and unknown to non-locals.
I look forward to getting more focused and booking more classes in the future.

Theodora is an excellent teacher who is very patient and thoughtful in how she teaches and communicates information. She shows a deep knowledge of the language and a passion in helping her students succeed. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a Greek teacher.
