About me

My friends and former students say that I am fun, positive, and an empathic clear communicator. I love explaining concepts, using various methods. Having worked as a psychologist I have developed my ability to empathize, thus deeply understanding the feelings and thoughts of people. My aim is to inspire and engage students, and help them reach the answers to their questions.

I have several years of experience teaching students, from primary school students to peers and older adults.

My most challenging student was a young boy who was easily distracted and unenthusiastic about school, but I got his attention by making the lesson comprehensible, fun and engaging.

Another challenging student I had was a very intelligent middle-aged adult studying a degree in Psychology, often posing critical and challenging questions which I thoroughly enjoyed answering.

Since my parents are professors, I have grown up in an educational culture, and I have also studied education as part of my degree.

As a student in secondary school I struggled at times with a few Science courses and had a regular tutor so I am quite familiar with educational challenges.

I have also thoroughly studied philosophy, classical Greek and Classical Civilization in my Greek secondary school as well as the Greek University.

Having applied and been accepted to 3 universities of different systems (Greek, American, British) I have enough experience with personal statements and the overall stressful process.

Questions Kimon has answered

What is reliability and validity in psychology?

In the context of psychology, reliability and validity may refer either to measurement tools such as questionnaires or to research studies. Reliability is a measure of the consistency of the results obtained from a psychological tool or study. In order for a measurement scale to be regarded as highly reliable, it should yield the same results if the conditions remain constant. For example, if the same participant is tested in the same conditions repeatedly, then consistent results should be produced.

Validity refers to the capacity of a tool to measure what it claims to measure. A questionnaire designed to test for aggression cannot measure depression, just as a weighting scale cannot measure height.
