Personal experience to a bad start , but with the trade all changed

My name is Anthi Tourmousoglou and I am a graduate of Aristoteleio University of
Thessaloniki of English Literature and since then I have been teaching English for more than
30 years to both children and adults. I have been in the private sector for 30 years in
Ioannina. Innovative ways of teachings have always lured me as I believe that all people have
talents and skills and it is up to us (teachers) to find them out and flourish. Students must be
given chances and time to develop skills and improve. The qualities of a teacher include
patience and kindness for me. A successful teacher must be eager to get to know the
personalities of students , their learning styles, their backgrounds and motivate them
according to what they are like.
