Hello, I am Paul Pavlos Georgakis. I am Greek and American, bi-cultural and bilingual. I’m a professional Teacher of English Language. My highest educational degrees are Master of Science in International and Intercultural Education, and Master of Business Administration in International Business. As for my qualifications TEFL and TESOL certified, recognized worldwide as leading qualifications to teach English as a foreign and second language. In addition, I have taken many courses around the world including courses offered at Harvard and Cambridge Universities and at Tsinghua University in Beijing China, all supported with verified certificates. I have been teaching English for the most part of the last 20 years. I've taught students / learners, from all kinds of sectors and all different ages, ranged from beginners to advanced. I enjoy helping and guiding students / learners to approach the English language in a way that leads to fluency. I have a passion to see my students / learners go further with the skills I taught them. I do also specialize in teaching English for Specific Purposes (ESP), a learner-centered approach to teaching English as an additional language, which focuses on developing communicative competence in a specific discipline such as academics, accounting, astrology, business, IT, medical, scientific, law & law enforcement, tourism, teaching, and engineering.
In order to learn English, you need a long term plan. Athletes need a good coach to progress in their sports. The same goes with English language studies. You need a good teacher/trainer/coach/counselor to support your progress and give you the right suggestions, the right way, and at the right time. The reasons students / learners should study with me are that, I’m an English language speaker and a qualified teacher who can give them insights into English culture and teach them idiomatic expressions that will make them sound natural and more like as natives. I do speak six languages. For fun, I like to do things that involve others, like friends. I enjoy spending quality time with friends. Whether making dinner and watching movies, going thrift shopping or grabbing a quick lunch, as long as I'm among great company with good conversation, I'm happy.
I also love to stay active by exercising, cycling, swimming, playing tennis, volleyball, and participating on a local soccer team. I do like to go to concerts, listen to music, go to carnivals, fairs, and the night markets. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, river fishing, volunteering, relaxing.

There was no better experience that I had on my very first session booked for English lessons with Paul. He is an excellent teacher, with passion and most of all he loves what he is doing. I can feel his experience, passion and professionalism through the way he approaches me with his lessons. He makes me feel comfortable and confident learning English through conversations. Learning the language is very important for me, and with teacher Paul I do really learn something new, every time time I have a session with him. I have now found my professional, experienced and passionate English trainer. Thank you teacher Paul for your time, efforts and passion.

My best 3 hours of the week that I have, are those on every Thursday, Friday and Saturday with my English language trainer Paul. I can't wait to speak with him on Skype. He is very passionate with me as he speaks slow and clear and he answers all of my questions. When I do not understand things he takes his time to explain to me by using many examples and so he makes me to understand everything. He corrects my mistakes that I always make in all areas (writing, speaking, pronouncing, grammar) and so I learn from my mistakes.
He is the best English teacher I ever had.
