How long have you been teaching for and how long for Cactus?

I have been a Greek Teacher around London since 2008. I started teaching at a Greek school but soon I focused on teaching adults both in classes and private tuition. I joined Cactus in January 2017 and I have been teaching from total Beginners to more advanced classes for them. I teach Greek at the Cactus centre in London.

How long have you been living in the UK?

I moved to London in 2004.

Where were you born and what is the city famous for?

I was born in Athens but I’m from Patras one of the main cities on the mainland (Peloponnese, South Greece) which is where I grew up. It is one of the most important Greek ports, the main port connecting Greece with Italy and Western Europe so it has flourished in the past through trade and has more cultural influences from Italy than other parts of Greece. This can been seen in architecture and art but mostly its carnival which is what Patras is most famous for. It is considered Greece’s best carnival and one of the best in Europe.

What is your degree and teaching experience?

My studies were in the fields of International Relations and Middle East Politics but eventually my passion for languages led me to teaching.

How many countries have you been to?

I love travelling, although having my family in Greece and visiting them often limits my opportunities to travel to different places as much as I would like to. I have traveled to Italy, Austria, Hungary, Germany (briefly) and Israel and I would love to visit Switzerland because I love the Alps and would like to learn how to ski (growing up in Greece I didn’t have the chance) and also I would like to explore the different parts of the US because it has so many things to offer, New York is so different from California, the American South or Midwest.
