italki teacher since Apr 25, 2023
My name is Ekaterina Gritsan. I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University with a degree in Byzantine and Modern Greek Philology. Also, I have a master's degree in French literature from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where I am currently studying my PhD in early Modern Greek folk literature. For the last fifteen years I have been living in Greece, in the magnificent city of Thessaloniki, which has preserved many traces of the rich Greek history.
Me as a Teacher
I am a certified teacher of Greek language (Ancient and Modern) and literature, as well as Russian as a foreign language. At the moment I have been teaching Greek for twenty years and Russian for fifteen years. I prepare students for certification exams in Greek ("Πιστοποίησης Επάρκειας της Ελληνομάθειας") and for exams for obtaining Greek citizenship, as well as for State certification exams in Russian as a foreign language. In addition, I teach Latin to high school students. My teaching experience also includes teaching ancient Greek and Modern Greek literature.
My lessons & teaching style
I believe that sometimes teachers do not reveal the potential of students, as they apply a unique method to all students, so I always try to understand the individual needs and a student-specific approach to learning. Based on this information, I create or compile material that is suitable specifically for him. Also, I try to listen to their wishes and complaints in order to improve the material I use. Thus, I use both standard textbooks and my own materials, as well as audio-visual materials.

Great teacher, who breaks down Latin to its simple parts, look forward to exposing myself to Ancient Greek as well. Highly recommend.
