“I strive to help people find their voice by imparting the power of language, both spoken and visual, as the cornerstone of identity and key to personal success.”
Maria Pentila




I am an experienced ESL tutor and creative professional with a demonstrated history of working in Higher Education, the Communication Services Industry and the Arts. On a mission to give voice to the power of the mind, I offer online English Coaching, Copywriting and Translation Services – because Language is Who We Are.

More about me

With over 13 years of service in Education, my main focus is to equip students with the necessary language, study and thinking skills so as to engage in a confident and meaningful manner in English and Greek. Still, what I find particularly conducive to effective learning is the creation of a positive environment, based on trust and open communication, which fosters the students’ emotional wellbeing.


My knowledge and experience extend to the Communication Services Industry, which have ultimately given me a greater insight into the use of language not only as a tool for two-way communication in a business setting, but also as a way to articulate a brand’s personality that is true to its values and persona.


On a different note, a flair for abstract thinking and originality has impelled me to pursue various artistic endeavours to fully express my ideas and aesthetic. Essential to the creative process I follow is extensive reading on different concepts, in the fields of philosophy, sociology and psychology, such as the human condition, identity and culture. My chosen means include writing, digital art and singing.


I have lived and worked in the UK for about 10 years where I obtained a MSc in Public Relations and a BA(hons) in English Literature with ESL. In addition, I hold a DELTA – Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults and a CELTYL – Cetificate in English Language Teaching to Young Learners.
