About me

Hi! I was born, raised and formally educated (at Northeastern Illinois University) in Chicago, IL in the USA. I moved to Athens, Greece in 1999 where I have been teaching both Greek and English ever since as well as translating texts of all levels of complexity in both Greek and English.

Ever since 1999, I have taught Cambridge and Michigan classes to students of all levels and various backgrounds. For the last few years, I have actively and successfully taught students Business English and IELTS General Training classes. I have not taught IELTS Academic yet as I haven't had a student express interest so far.

In my classes, I focus on conversation but of course work on grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing as these areas are necessary for conversation. I strive to make my lessons fun and stimulating by using various learning tools such as podcasts, texts, articles, songs, games, puzzles and more.

I have great passion for teaching. I thrive on helping people be the best they can be and to work to their full potential. I also love getting to know people.

I would love to help you learn to speak like a native Amercan!

Feel free to contact me so that we can set up a Skype lesson! I offer trial lessons of 15 minutes so that you can see if I am the suitable teacher for you. My Skype ID is Tina Contocra (Athens, Greece).
