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.

I am bilingual as I am half Greek and half Serbian but English was always the language I felt most comfortable with. I am into sports, music, and politics. I have been told I have an opinion about everything so we will definitely make some good conversation(in Greek of course lol).See Reviews From Students

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

Hello lovely people! Are you ready to learn Greek? DefinItely something more than the usual KALIMERA, KALISPERA, MOUSSAKA? Book a trial lesson with me and see where it leads you.
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

I am a TEFL-certified tutor and my other studies include a degree in Fashion Design, Office Management & Organisation, Diploma in Health and Social Care (Open University UK), Teaching Assistant Diploma, Anger Management & Life Coaching Diploma, and Proofreading & Editing Diploma.
My way of teaching is relaxed, friendly, and conversational; I always work with my students and tailor our lessons to their needs. During our first lesson, I will assess your language level through a friendly chit-chat and we will establish a personalised and goal-oriented teaching method.
The initial Greek lessons will focus on the basics; I will teach you how to:
Greek for holidays

The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Greek tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Greek as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private Greek lessons in Foster City is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online tutors do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
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 tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor 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.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a tutor on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better tutors at a lower cost.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide lessons locally, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching Greek in Foster City because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Foster City, there are many options for learning Greek. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group lessons with Greek tutors in Foster City if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 lessons with a private tutor. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good tutor. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private tutors a more affordable option. Check the tutor profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the tutor, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a Greek tutor in Foster City, face-to-face.
