I have a passion for learning, that's why I love to teach. For me, learning – as life – is like an Odyssey. Kavafis' poem "Ithaka" puts it so beautifully:

As you set out for Ithaka
Hope the voyage is a long one,
Full of adventure, full of discovery…
Not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.
Ithaka gave you the journey.

So my main objective in teaching is to create a space for exciting and adventurous exploration, for developing confidence, courage and trust. I like to entrain the students into the joy of learning – whether it is ancient Greek or modern coaching.

Did You Know?

I love the space in between words, the gaps in which my intuition can sense the unspoken: in poetry as well as in real life.
