Yia Sas!!! I'm Despina (my friends call me Debbie), and I was born and raised in the States, in Long Beach California. At the age of 15, my family and I moved to Greece (both parents are Greek) and since then I live here permanently. So basically I'm a native speaker in both languages (Greek & English).
Qualifications & Experience
I have a bachelor degree in Business and Tourism Administration from the Greek University of Patras and I'm now studying for my Master Degree in Tesol plus Education. I also have the Certificate of Proficiency in English from the University of Michigan. Because of my job I've travelled a lot and I had the chance to learn about many different cultures and languages, but English and Greek are the two that have made the greatest impression on me. I've been working as a tutor for almost 4 years, and I'm still more than thrilled to be able to give other people the opportunity to get know the Greek culture and language.
I am a qualified Greek and English tutor and have participated in many training seminars such as "Teaching Greek and English as a Foreign Language".
Have a look at my blogs: http://speakgreeknow.blogspot.com/ and http://engl4all.blogspot.com/ for more details.
I teach various students at different levels from beginners- intermediate or even advanced. Curriculum consists of everyday use of language to more specified format for example holiday making, living or setting up to live abroad and business orientated language sessions. All sessions are tailored to individual needs.
