Hallo zusammen! Γειά σε όλους! I am Dimitra and I am an enthusiastic language teacher with more than ten years of experience teaching German and Greek. Having a strong academic background and huge passion for foreign languages I am the right person to support you, whether you want to start from scratch or to develop your already existing German skills.
In terms of my experience, before coming to Edinburgh I have been working as a German and Greek instructor in many private language schools as well as state schools in my home-country Greece. As a result, I have experience with teaching students of different age groups as well as of different levels of expertise, ranging from A1 to C2 on the European Framework of Reference. I am now offering one-to-one tuition at home helping students with their academic studies. My lessons are also adequate for professionals who are interested in moving to a German speaking country or people who are just interested in the Greek language and culture.
Cultural immersion is in my opinion of major importance when learning a second language. This is why I always try to offer an insight into the culture of the foreign language using a variety of media such as articles, movies and literature. Practicing everyday use of language is another important aspect. I am well aware of the difficulties that may arise when learning a new language and this is why I am happy to create tailor-made lesson plans in order to adapt to the needs, abilities and objectives of my students. My aim is a stress-free, creative and engaging learning process. If required, lessons can be adapted to focus on specific areas such as grammar or writing practice.
