I spent ~3 weeks with Maria from Ellinisti, doing zoom lessons almost every day, and she is a genuinely fantastic teacher. She prepared really helpful exercises for me to complete after each lesson, completely individualised to (a) help me clarify errors I’d made during the lesson, and (b) repeat things from previous lessons to make them stick. She also made copious notes from each lesson so all the material we had covered each time was and is available for me to use. Not only a great teacher but a wonderful person, I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and absolutely recommend her teaching if you’re wondering whether to go ahead!
I have completed a two week intensive course with Maria and enjoyed it immensely! Maria is a consummate professional – supremely attentive, patient and an extraordinarily skilled teacher. She was able to instantly gauge my competence level and adjust the tuition to suit. I enjoyed the excursions with her and her husband Makis massively, in the process I have also fallen in love with this majestic island!’
‘Nous avons pris des cours de grec en famille cet été à Tinos avec Maria. Super découverte, Maria, en plus d’être très sympa, est très professionnelle. Elle transmet sa passion d’enseigner le grec avec patience et enthousiasme, c’est très motivant. Aussi bien pour les grands que pour les petits. Avec nos deux enfants, de 5 et 7 ans, elle a su être très pédagogue avec une approche très ludique. Elle avait organisé deux activités sur l’ile, ce qui nous a permis de mieux découvrir ses habitants ainsi que des coins moins connus. Bravo et merci. Nous ne pouvons que recommander Cette expérience.’
‘Chez Tinos Courses vous trouverez une enseignante professionnelle et aux petits soins. Elle s’adapte à votre niveau et à vos besoins. Le matériel et la salle sont top. Enfin, étant moi aussi enseignant, j’ai apprécié énormément son travail sur le vocabulaire et ses paroles d’encouragement. Un seul regret, devoir quitter cette île magnifique… Bravo pour ton travail María !! Να είσαι καλά!’
