Angélika

Hello! My name is Angélika. I am a professional French tutor and an accredited, by the International Center for Pedagogical Studies (C.I.E.P), DELF (A1 - B2) examiner.

My valid certification allows me to teach French as a foreign language in F.L.E.

For almost two decades I have been tutoring and preparing children, adolescents and adults alike for the challenge of  DELF exams, with an overall success.  

The multitude of my working experience, both in private and in public institutions such as the French Institut of Thessaloniki, made me capable of work under heavy pressure while opening my mind to new ideas which I incorporated into my teaching system.

Many hours of teaching I have passed along side younger children while tutoring them and helping them out with their school tasks.

I have a love for modern schooling approaches and I always want to fulfill my vision of an interactive, audiovisual lesson, without discarding the old classic values of traditional tutoring.

That’s who I am and there is what I have to offer you. What’s that? An absolute certainty for your success alongside with a flexible course program and additional Skype course in case you miss one.
