Pantelis is an excellent teacher! I highly reccomend him!
Alexis Pronos
I picked Pantelis as my Greek teacher based on the reviews I read on him and I am so glad I did! I have had the great privilege having Pantelis be my teacher as I continue to learn the Greek language. He has been so flexible and understanding and really wants to help you achieve your goals. I did not think I would be able to grasp onto the language as quickly as I have, but because of Pantelis, his patience, his incredible curriculum and approach on the best way to learn, I am in shock of how quickly I have been able to learn as much as I have thus far and I am only on lesson number 8! I will continue to work with Pantelis as my experience has been the BEST and I am excited to continue to expand my knowledge in Greek! I highly recommend him and his curriculum!

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. 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 ...

Spiros has been an ideal teacher for me, he has a wealth of experience to draw from and has a natural nack for teaching (Im an absolute beginner).
His teaching method gets you playing fast and doesn't skimp on theory and musicality - he doesn't simply have you learn tabs and songs, this was a huge plus for me. Highly recommend him.

Excellent first lesson. Via Skype we covered common phrases, beginning grammar and vocabulary. Looking forward to my next lesson.

I like my students to structure the lessons thought their experiences. Building knowledge is about creating personal connection between the student and the subject. Otherwise the words are simply letters without any meaning. My lessons are interactive, a combination between the traditional and mondern way of teaching. In other words, i will definetely be based on a book but i would be happy to teach you all the vegs cooking "gemista"* in my kitchen!

This program is perfect for anyone interested in fully learning the Greek language!

The goal of investing in Speak Greek Now is for you to learn how to speak Greek with others effortlessly. There's no better way to do that than to have online tutoring so you can master ...

Helen is a talented, passionate, and EXCELLENT language teacher. It's a gift to take lessons with her, and her love for both teaching and her students shines through in each lesson. We cannot speak highly enough about her as an instructor and person. She helps you to BELIEVE in yourself as a student on your journey of learning a new language. If you're on the fence about learning Greek, take the leap and go for it with Helen!
Anthony
Helen is the most passionate, articulate, and empathetic Greek teacher I have ever encountered. Attempting to learn the Greek language at first was rather daunting, but Helen made me feel at ease immediately. She is filled with an abundance of exuberance and charisma. Helen never overwhelms or intimidates me and cheers me on each little step I take towards mastering the Greek language. She really is a life coach and Greek teacher in one! I recommend purchasing lessons with Helen for one hour or longer because that has been the most effective for me because she has the time to explain the context behind the things I am learning. The bottom line is that if you want the most effective Greek teacher who is also your friend and escape during the week, do not hesitate in booking lessons with Helen.

"Just had my first lesson, and Pantelis is great! A focus on rules and grammar structure to start, but it doesn't feel daunting, unlike other ways I've tried to learn Greek. Plus, he shared a lot of cultural things, too! I've lived near Philadelphia my whole life and didn't know it literally came from the Greek words for "friends" and "brother". I'm excited to keep learning!"

"Mr. Psoras gave 4 lessons to my 8.5 yeal old daughter, Katherine. He evaluated her first for free, which was a clear indication that he works to achieve better results rather than to make more money. Mr. Psoras was always on time, responsive, friendly, enthusiastic. Greek is his native language, and he knows how to teach. He is full of resources too, so you won't get bored. We had to stop lessons on line because of an opportunity to continue lessons in person."

"Pantelis is a great instructor. He started with what I needed to know to truly grasp the language (alphabet, gender pronouns, basic verb conjugations, every day phrases, etc.) and at the same time, took into consideration what I wanted to learn in preparation for my trip to Greece. He also referred me to some very useful online resources that I used throughout the week to ensure I kept up with the language. His enthusiasm and trust in my ability to learn the language also motivated me to learn more."

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 populations 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
