Hello! I am a Hellenic-Canadian ESL instructor for almost 20 years with the last 7 being online. I have taught all age groups and levels and specializations ranging from conversational English, and exam preparation classes with a 100% passing rate for all learners, to business English. Some of the companies I have tutored professional business people in are, the Public Electricity Company, the Public Telecommunication Company, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Titan Cement, FoodPlus-Pizza Hut, Emporiki Bank, Philip Morris Tobacco Industry, Lafarge Cement, etc. I have taught 1-to-1 as well as group classes throughout my career. I am a Berlitz method trained instructor as well as an examiner-interlocutor for B2-C2 English language certificates for the University of Michigan. No matter what the setting is, I always try to create a non-threatening learning environment one in which all attendees can practice their English without fearing mistakes. I too had to learn Greek which is one of the hardest languages and I do remember the feeling! PS: I am a mYngle certified Blended Learning trainer.
