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.

Athanasios is one of the best teachers I have ever had! He is knowledgeable, relatable, helpful, and overall cares about his craft which is teaching and language learning. Not only does he have a structured approach to teaching languages he also is flexible and can gauge where you need more help to make the lessons specifically geared towards your learning path. He is an excellent listener and is extremely patient no matter what you throw at him and teaches as a mentor and friend . For someone who needs a healthy blend of structured exercises and free flowing conversation, Thanasis can do all of it. If you’re looking for someone to help you with your language journey and want someone passionate and knowledgeable to help guide you then I would say Athanasios is who you should look to.
