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. In contrast, when we started taking lessons again with Spiros after many years, we began to learn to converse immediately. We certainly learned grammar from textbooks, but also honed our skills by putting our lessons into ...

Hi! I have 1 year of experience tutoring ancient Greek and know how tricky it can be! Ancient Greek is my favorite language, and I love helping other people succeed in the subject. I have taken intensive Greek courses on both the undergraduate and graduate level, and have tutored students in Greek ages 10-22. I was taught using a very grammar-heavy approach, and this is how I like to tutor. At the early stages of translation, it is imperative that a student can understand what every single word is doing in the sentence. This active use of grammar outside of the textbook sets the student up for success and enjoyment in Greek!

Alternative Language Lesson Methods:
Greek Apps and Books
For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out Greek books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.
Greece and Travel & Immersion
If you're considering study-abroad programs in Greek, Albania, Cypress, and in other parts of the Mediterranean, work relocation, international business opportunities, or general travel as a means to learning Greek, immersing yourself and interacting with locals is a surefire way to accelerate your learning. Reading signs, menus, and local newspaper magazines while abroad could expose you to all kinds of spontaneous subjects. Conversing with or having to ask native speakers for directions or recommendations forces you to proactively apply your lessons. The downside is that many students, professionals, and travelers don't feel as confident in taking this approach. Not knowing the basics of the language could backfire on you, and lead to poor decision making. If you learn basic conversation and the most popular phrases for traveling, then you can combine this knowledge with immersion and return home a more fluent speaker.
Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local group Greek classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.
At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
