English through creative play
Holiday Fun is like an English Club. All the activities involve some creative endeavor and an adventure into the English language. It is designed for the school holidays.
School can be a drag. Here you can learn English without noticing that you are actually making and effort in learning anything.
During these activities children acquire the language through active play similar to the way they learn their mother tongue.
During the programs that usually last for 3 hrs (4*45 min lessons) children are invited into various ‘Life like’ creative activities in order to acquire the target language through play, interaction, research, and more.

I believe in active learning, so I create an active and creative educational environment and offer educational services tailored to specific needs.
During these Holiday Fun Sessions, I teach English as a foreign language via various topics, playful activities and creative ventures. As you can see from the photos, I detect the children’s interest and build our sessions around these topics so to keep the educational content interesting and attractive for them.
Since my main hobbies are art, creative writing and developing creativity in general, I integrate much of that in my teaching sessions.
I especially like working with children who are not doing well in their studies. I find it a creative challenge to work with those who lack either the interest or the motivation to do better and reach their potential.
There is always a way! 🙂
I recognize that every student’s needs are different, which is the reason I customize these sessions to be as unique as the participating children, helping them attain valuable skills while making learning an enjoyable experience.
Whatever your child’s skill level or grade, I create a learning environment that is versatile, creative, interactive and supportive.
My intention is to develop your child’s cognitive skills and abilities rather than solely focusing on his/her academic achievement.
“Cognitive abilities are brain-based skills we need to carry out any task from the simplest to the most complex. They have more to do with the mechanisms of how we learn, remember, problem-solve, and pay attention rather than with any actual knowledge. For instance, answering the telephone involves at least: perception (hearing the ring tone), decision taking (answering or not), motor skill (lifting the receiver), language skills (talking and understanding language), social skills (interpreting tone of voice and interacting properly with another human being).” What are Cognitive Abilities and Skills, and How to Boost Them?
