Hello! My name is Dionysis and I come from Thessaloniki, Greece. I cannot imagine myself without being able to teach and motivate students.
I graduated in 2004 from the School of English, Faculty of Philosophy, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Greece with a BA in English Language and Literature. In 2008 I completed my MA studies in the Department of American Literature and Culture of the same School. In 2012 I decided to pursue the first module of the Master's Degree in English Literature in the Open University UK. Upon completion of the module in August 2014 I received my Postgraduate Diploma in Humanities with a focus on English Literature.
My hobbies include, among others, voracious reading of literature, both American and British as well as world literature. I take great pleasure into discovering new writers and new texts, especially poetry, travel narratives as well as science and historical fiction. Upon suitable inspiration I find creative writing, especially poetry to be immensely liberating and transcending. I am an avid theatre and cinema spectator with an interest in both popular and independent films and plays
As a certified English Teacher, I possess over 12 years of teaching students, combined with sustained personal academic development, and have delivered a comprehensive record of success providing instruction for adult and younger students alike. I enjoy working in a fast paced environment, possessing the ability to communicate effectively with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and English literacy, including the ability to share advice and develop the curriculum in a simple but effective way.
I always work to the best of my ability; the following are indicative of the performance that I intend to offer you:
• A compassionate teacher who remains sensitive to your unique needs, employing effective listening and providing individual and whole group support including the integration of multicultural teaching aids, and offering positive encouragement and reinforcement to keep you focused and motivated
• To assist you by developing and presenting comprehensive and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate most learning styles, incorporating a variety of resources to accommodate you via various audiovisual methods
If you are seeking someone who is undaunted by challenge and enthused with breaking new ground, I would like to be given the opportunity to prove my abilities to you.
I look forward to sharing my perspectives with you.
