a bit about me:


Professional info :

I was born in noisy Athens, in beautiful Greece. I have studied Philology, History and Archaeology,  History of Art & Laography in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
I did my first professional steps preparing students for their introductive examinations in Greek Universities and tutoring children of immigrants who needed to follow Greek school. That was love on first sight: to discover your language further than the limits you imagined that exist, to transfer your language and your culture to other people and to accept their language and their culture as a life’ s lesson.

For more than 20 years I worked in schools, cultural centres, multinational companies, embassies etc. teaching expats, executives, diplomats and doing always the same thing with the same passion.  My students learned from me Greek and I learned from them to love multiculturality.

Looking behind I can say that every step in my carrier was a new challenge which brought me more experience and extra knowledge. Since 2015 I am in front of a new challenge: ”Lato”.
“Lato” is the first official Centre for Greek language & culture in Amsterdam which has the ambition to redefine Greece and bring her closer to her friends in the Nederlands.
