Hello. My name is Rania Efthymiadou-Linsdell.
I am a native Greek speaker, born and bred in Athens. I am also fluent in English and have lived in England since 2000.
I am keeping in close touch with Greece and the Greek language, which allows me to maintain my fluency, accent and knowledge of the country and the culture.
I am an English teacher by profession and taught Greek students in language schools in Athens for fifteen years.
My students have attained excellent examination results throughout my career, from junior to advanced levels.
I also held private tuition throughout this period, again with excellent results.
Since coming to England, I have taught Greek privately to English speakers who were interested in acquiring knowledge of the Greek language for various purposes such as:
- Visiting Greece on holidays
- Purchasing property in Greece
- Those with Greek family & friends
- Entering themselves into Greek GCSE exams
First of all, I am a sensitive listener. I am patient with excellent skills in conveying my knowledge to my students.
I focus on helping students to feel confident with the various aspects of the language without judging them, which helps people to learn in an encouraging environment.
I believe it is important that lessons are interactive and fun.
The lessons are customised to you the student according to your personal needs, so whether you are a complete beginner or already have a good understanding of the Modern Greek language, Surrey Greek Lessons should be perfect for you.
