Private Greek Teacher

I am a native Greek- Athenian college educated who is teaching modern Greek in New York for the past 10 years with many satisfied and happy students and many recommendations. I use the same method and books as at the Athens Centre for Greek Studies which is an established and efficient method of teaching with great results. All levels and all ages are welcome from beginners to advanced students.

Both my husband I have been taking lessons in Greek from Spiros for several years. My husband is Greek-American, but did not learn the language growing up, and we travel to Greece fairly often to visit relatives. We had taken Greek lessons years ago with mixed results. That teacher's rote drills of grammar made for very slow and tedious progress.

We certainly learned grammar from textbooks, but also honed our skills by putting our lessons into ...

We just started our lessons with Spiros a few weeks ago, and we’re having a blast! He’s very patient with our struggles, but pushes us enough to grow. He also helps us with our study habits. It’s great to have the guidance as well as the accountability of a private tutor. It’s clear he will do his best to help us succeed! Highly recommend!

It was a pleasure meeting Pantelis for my first Greek lesson and I look forward to learning from him. He was an absolute pleasure and I believe I will finally be able to learn how to speak Greek from Pantelis' instruction. He was very personable and explained the lesson very clearly and easy for me to understand. I can't wait until the next lesson!

Private Greek Language Lessons Near You

The Greek language has an incredibly rich history and culture. In fact, Greek writing was found on a stone tablet that dated between 1450 and 1350 B.C.E.! It's estimated that Greek was spoken on the Baltic Peninsula around the third millennia B.C.E., making it the oldest recorded living language. 

Greek's presence in art, literature, and philosophy throughout the ages makes it easy to stay motivated and inspired while learning with a Greek tutor near you. Although the language's grammar and vocabulary have evolved over thousands of years, the Greek alphabet remains mostly the same today. 

Why Learn to Speak Greek?

Just over 13 million people speak Greek in the world. It's the official language of Greece and also the Middle Eastern island nation, Cyprus. Large popu

...

lations of Greek speakers can also be found in the United States, Australia, and the Baltic nations neighboring Greece. 

The most common reasons people choose to learn Greek are for travel, getting in touch with their heritage, and to experience great historical works of art in their original form. (There's also Greek cuisine, which is so delicious it deserves to be mentioned!)

If travel, heritage, and food aren't enough to convince you, learning Greek will enhance your academic pursuits. If you're interested in history, philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, literature, or medicine, knowing Greek will allow you to access your field of study in a new way. 

Plus, being a native English speaker will give you a major leg up if you want to learn to Greek. English actually borrows 25 percent of its vocabulary from Greek! Now that you know the many reasons why, read on to find out how to learn Greek.

Topics You'll Learn in Greek Language Classes Near You

If you're wondering how to learn ancient Greek or contemporary Demotic Greek, the best way to go is with a private tutor. In private Greek lessons, you'll learn to speak Greek much more quickly than you could by studying on your own. You'll stay motivated and overcome challenges swiftly while receiving immediate feedback and your teacher's undivided attention.

Depending on whether you're interested in ancient Greek, wish to learn Biblical Greek (also called “Koine Greek”), or you want to speak the language spoken in Greece today, a private tutor will customize lessons to help you achieve your personal goals. With a private tutor, you'll focus on the subjects you want to learn, while studying at a pace that's comfortable for you.

Sample Curriculum - Greek for Beginners

In Greek for beginners, you'll learn all the basics of the language that will allow you to form sentences and carry on basic conversations. At this introductory level, your curriculum will likely include the following:

  • Learn the Greek alphabet
  • Pronunciation
  • Verb tenses
  • Forming sentences
  • Asking questions

Sample Curriculum - Intermediate Greek Lessons

Intermediate Greek lessons build upon everything you already know to expand your knowledge and command of the language. You'll learn how to write and form more complex sentences. At this stage, your tutor may choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Informal Greek expressions
  • Reading and listening comprehension
  • Verb moods
  • Irregular grammar rules
  • Writing in Greek

Sample Curriculum - Advanced Greek Lessons

In advanced Greek lessons, course content is highly dependent on the type of Greek you're studying. You'll begin to approach fluency and speak just like a Greek — from ancient or modern times. Your Greek teacher might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Professional vocabulary
  • Conversational skills
  • Accent reduction
  • Greek customs and culture
