    Teaching Approach


    My main objective is always to have my students learn while enjoying themselves. Therefore I like co-operating with them to make sure I also respect their specific learning pace and wishes.

    No student is the same, so lessons and approaches have to be personalized and adapted to each student's own needs to make sure they are happy with their learning process. This will in turn enable them to progress as they should.

    I truly believe that good communication is the key to all success, so I have chosen to build my teaching approach around this.


    Program Description


    First, I like having an introductory chat with the student so we get to know each other a bit. This is for free and it helps me make an assessment of their level and goals which then helps me determine the material we need, so I can make an individual lesson plan that will suit each student best.

    During the lessons we also work with an interactive white board (optional), which makes it even easier for my students to understand what I am explaining and it’s a good way to do exercises together. The board is very easy to use and it doesn’t require any download, but if you prefer not to use it that’s fine because then I just send the material via email or our Skype chat.

    I like following lessons up with some extra help for my students, so I often send them personal notes of the grammar items they learned as well as provide homework (if the student would like it).

    I provide all the material and books, so no worries about that.


    Teaching Experience


    I have been teaching and tutoring since 1997.

    I have taught at many different schools and levels as well as at a private university. I also have an extensive experience in tutoring private lessons to students of all ages (from very young children to elderly professionals) in their homes.

    Finally, I have been tutoring online since 2006 when the opportunity to do so presented itself. This is something I have greatly enjoyed so far as it has given me the opportunity to "meet" students from all over the world. It's a unique chance to get to know different cultures and ways of thinking, which is something I truly like as I’m what one might call a "people's person".

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Q: What is your Teaching Schedule?
    A: My schedule is pretty hectic but in general I am free to teach from 7 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon, Central European Time (CET) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

    Q: What is your payment policy?
    A: We can agree on that together when we start since some people prefer paying after each lesson and others after a couple of lessons. It also depends a bit on how often you want to take lessons.

    Q: What languages do you know that might be helpful?
    A: I am fluent in Danish, English and Greek (and I know some German as well), so I can use either of these languages when I teach if necessary.
    For example, I often use English when I teach Danish (as the students might be from the USA or China for instance) and I often use Greek when I teach English (to many of my local students).

    Q: How would you describe yourself?
    A: In general I’m a very happy and positive person with an optimistic outlook on life. I really like travelling and meeting people from different parts of the world, so I am also hosting travellers who come my way (on a voluntary basis via Couchsurfing.org) - just because I enjoy meeting them and hearing all about their travels, experiences and way of life in their own country.

    I come from Denmark but after high school I went to Greece for a year as an exchange student during which I met my future husband, so I have stayed in Greece ever since. I really like the way the cultural differences have enriched my life because they have given me a chance to choose the best parts of both worlds.

    One of my favourite lines from a book is by the amazing Elisabeth Kübler-Ross who said: “The purpose of life is growth.” I really like this as I truly believe that life-long learning is vital for our minds to stay alert and for our character to mature.



    Cost of Lessons


    I offer a free introductory chat over Skype where we can get to know each other a bit before we start our lessons. This also gives you the chance to tell me what you would like to gain from these lessons, and I get to understand how you prefer learning, so we can agree on a teaching module that suits your level and personality best.

    Then a lesson costs 25 Euros for a 60-minute lesson (plus any potential transfer fees). This price is all-inclusive: the lesson, the notes as well as the material and books. Payment takes place via Paypal.
