My name is Simos and I live in the beautiful island of Crete. I am born and raised in Athens, the capital of Greece. I have completed my Bachelor's degree in Greek Philology, specialized in Linguistics and I hold a master's degree in teaching Greek as a second language. Patience and calmness are my main traits, which help me in teaching. I love hiking, motorcycle rides and my brown labrador, Rocket.
I have 2 years of teaching experience with foreign students and 5 years experience with local students. I have worked as a teacher in the Greek Counsil of Refugees, helping adult refugees to learn the language and the Greek society. I am familiar with online platforms and tools. My master's degree has provided me essential skills for teaching, such as modern ways of teaching, e-books and lesson plans for every type of student. I like to use the communicative approach in teaching, focusing on language use. My main goal is to design the lessons according to my students needs, so they can be fun and effective at the same time.
Subjects like Greek history, literature, music, tradition are used during the lesson and for homework. I strongly believe that those who try to learn the language, should also get in touch with the Greek culture. By doing this, students begin to understand the Greek way of thinking and develop a greater connection with the language.

My name is Thanasis and Greek is my native language. I was born and raised in Greece and I graduated from the University of Athens. I have also lived and studied abroad in both Europe and Asia. I have a Master’s degree in Linguistics. I have been teaching professionally at schools and freelance since 2016. I teach adults students of all levels.
Language is not just my job but my passion, and I feel that teaching languages is what I was born to do. I am a language enthusiast and have studied several languages myself; in fact I am currently studying Hindi so I know first hand the difficulties one faces when studying a foreign language. To make things easier I try to make sure my classes are well planned and effective but also fun. I try to use a mixed method of teaching with the use of a textbook but also podcasts, short movies and audio tracks among others. From my experience most students are mostly interested in speaking so I make sure that at least half of the lesson is dedicated to that. We practice speaking through free conversation, role plays, describing pictures and other types of drills.
If you book a lesson with me, I will assess your current level and try to make sure I plan lessons customized to match your needs and requests.See Reviews From Students

My very greek name is Stavroula! I graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I have a degree in History. History and languages were my favourite subjects at school and I consider myself lucky to be able to do something I love, that is to help people learn the greek language. I grew up in Athens but life brought me to the Eternal City. In my case, the famous expression that all roads lead to Rome, was true! I've been teaching english and modern greek to italians for the last 8 to 10 years,
As a person who likes to speak concisely, much like the ancient greek saying : " Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν" which roughly translates to; brevity is the soul of wit, I'll not keep you any longer.
If you have decided to learn Greek, rest assured that I'll do my very best to help and it will be my pleasure! Speaking Greek and English is one of my favourite things, let's have fun together.See Reviews From Students

Hello! My name is Erofili and I teach modern Greek.
Ι’m a native speaker and I have more than ten years of teaching experience. I teach children, teenagers and adults.
I have a Bachelor’s in English Language and a post-graduate degree in teaching methodology.
I’m fluent in English, Spanish, and Portuguese and speak a little bit of Italian.
I have travelled extensively, lived and taught in Italy and Spain so I’m quite familiar with different cultures and learning styles.
When I teach a lesson I take into consideration two factors: Students’ needs and their interests.
At the end of the class I want my students to have improved in their learning, to have enjoyed the class, to feel confident about themselves and motivated to continue learning.
Whether I teach a four year old child or an adult, whether my students want to learn Greek just for fun, to travel or to take an exam, I always tailor the lesson to their needs and give the best of myself.
I provide my students with extra photocopiable material and notes that I prepare just for them. I use photocopies, flashcards, games, real life material (articles, songs, videos e.t.c.) and send them internet links that can enhance their learning. I also give them extra homework in case they want to study the language by themselves and correct it offline.
I like being creative, innovative and using communicative, student-oriented methods.
If you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact me or book a free trial lesson so we can discuss your needs and learning objectives.See Reviews From Students
Γεια! I'm Georgia, and I have been a full-time Greek tutor for the past 4 years.
To help you determine if I am the right tutor for you, I have answered a few things you might want to know about me:
What levels do you teach? Do you have a specialization?
I teach all levels, but I could say that I specialize in beginners since I have the most experience with students who start from scratch.
What can you teach me?
I can teach you everything that you need to know in order to achieve your individual goals:
Do you have a specific teaching style?
My teaching approach depends on my students' level and needs, but generally, I believe that learning through conversation and examples while having some fun in the process is the best way not only to learn a new language but also to love the language!
What kind of resources do you use?
I have many textbooks that target different needs (listening, grammar, etc.), and I have also created my own notes and exercises that I believe will help you understand Greek a bit better. With more advanced students, I also work with Greek songs, videos, TV shows, stand-up comedy bits, and even memes and jokes in Greek!
What should I expect from my trial lesson with you?
We will talk about your level in Greek, your experience with the language, and your future goals regarding the language. Together, we will create a plan according to your needs.
Is there anything else I should know before my lesson?
Yes! What is very important to me is that you feel relaxed during the lessons. I want you to feel comfortable asking questions and trying to speak. Remember that I'm here to help you in any way I can! Just be yourself, and don't be afraid to make lots of mistakes!
Alright, I think you're the right tutor for me!
Yaaay! Let's have some fun! I hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students

Your teacher may also provide you with additional materials, such as audio recordings or written exercises, to help you practice and consolidate your learning.

There are several options for learning Greek in Palo Alto, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group classes for adults with Greek teachers in Palo Alto if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one classes for adults with a private teacher, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good teacher. Learning online may make private teachers a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the teacher, but are generally cheaper than in-person classes for adults in Palo Alto.
If you prefer not to learn online with teacher, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you. Instead, you can search for teacher, we recommend giving online learning a try as it is often as good as in-person learning and allows you to access better teachers at a lower cost. You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Greek online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your chosen teacher, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Some teachers on LanguaTalk may offer local classes for adults, but most only provide online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many teachers do not teach Greek in Palo Alto as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a teacher, you should assume that it will be online unless the teacher specifically states that they offer in-person classes for adults in Palo Alto.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private Greek lessons in Palo Alto is between $25-$35 per hour. Online teachers do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
