« Sotirios is a gifted person who can efficiently and effortlessly transfer knowledge as well as inspire students. He was awarded a scholarship from France and he completed his Masters degree in St. Andrews University in just a year. He is a modest person and never brags about his admittedly broad knowledge in his domain. I recommend him without any reservation. Since his adolence he was able to capture audiences as well as individuals. During his scout years and military service he inspired his teammates and was always voted as the most efficient and popular leader. »

Tailored courses in Ancient Greek History and History of Warfare, from PhD student in London.

Methodology

I am a PhD student in London focusing on Ancient Greek Military History and offering courses to anyone interested in Ancient Greece from school to university level. I encourage interactive courses with pleasant and constructive discussions over a one sided monologue, but can accommodate any student's requirements. I have taught children of troubled backgrounds in France all the way to enlisted soldiers in Greece, forcing me to always tailor my courses to my student's needs. I Can assist in essay writing, in-depth study of a particular subject, or general interest.

Background

I have studied History for 5 years in three different countries, forcing me to always adapt my methods. I am currently doing PhD research at UCL on Ancient Greek Military History.

I have Taught Contemporary History at the "Collège Jeu de Mail" a secondary school in France for children of often troubled and sometimes violent background. Through my lessons I exposed the students for the first time to foreign, non-French History.

I Coached a secondary school class in their production of "Democracy", a French play on the beginning of the Athenian Democratic system. I endeavored to teach the actors about the social and political realities of the VI century, the better for them to adapt them on stage.

More recently I also established Unofficial "learning nights" at the barrack as well as the refugee camps I helped build during my one year military service in Greece, teaching Ancient History to young men and sometimes officers from all walks of life.
