When did you first start tutoring?

In 2010, I began working as a secondary school teacher in Greece. I instructed students in geology, geography, science, and mathematics. In 2014, I relocated to London, United Kingdom. I was awarded with QTS in May of 2014. Since then, I`ve taught in a variety of schools and institutions with great success. For the past four years, I have served as the head of the Geography Department. I am currently working as an online-tutor for the National Tutoring Programme ran by the British Department for Education. I have more than 1000 hours of online lessons delivered in my recent career.

What is your teaching style?

The Rosenshein Principles of Instruction are my preferred teaching style. However, I make every effort to accommodate each student`s unique demands and preferences. Since the start of the current pandemic, I`ve taught over 1000 hours of sessions, mostly through the British Department of Education`s National Tutoring Programme. I provide topic-specific revision notes and teach study and revision approaches. I answer each student`s concerns individually, and I am patient and willing to repeat and use alternative explanations until a concept is grasped. I use my own set of worked examples to make the subject more engaging by relating it to real-life situations and by making it similar to exam problems. I use topic-organised bundles of board-specific old paper questions. My worked examples cover a large portion of the material on your exam. I provide lists of crucial descriptive terms for descriptive questions, such as 6 mark questions.
