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.
References:
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 is my guitar instructor for over a year now, I’m so happy to be learning with such an amazing Guitar master 😊.
Not only did I learn how to play, he actually thought me how to read music and work on my vocals.
I couldn’t be happier 😃.
I absolutely recommend to take him as your teacher, you will not regret it!

I have taught Classical and Koine Greek to students of all ages and levels. I can help you master Greek for your studies or your own personal interests. I can help you read Greek clearly and comprehensibly.

About Jenni
My name is Jenni and I am a professional Latin and Greek teacher with over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring both Latin and Ancient Greek. I have taught professionally at the elementary, junior high, and graduate levels and I hold a Master’s degree in Classical Philology. I currently work at the Polis Institute, where I teach Greek and Latin as living languages to graduate students.

I also have familiarity with spoken Latin and Ancient Greek, and I teach all of my professional courses in a 100% immersion setting. My passion is to show every interested student that they have the
capability to master these languages.

With my help, the complicated aspects of these languages will become clear to you, as I help my students learn tools and strategies that they will keep with them in the classroom and out – all in a fun and friendly tutoring environment.

With specifically tailored instruction, either as a supplement to current courses or an education ab initio (i.e. from the beginning), I will work with you to help you access the beautiful literature, history and music of the languages of the Ancient World.

Jenni has an incredible depth of knowledge of both Latin and Greek, reflecting not only her years of experience with both languages, but also a very concerted effort to think about the best way to teach these languages.

This became very apparent when I approached her to help me in what I felt would be a near impossible task: to learn a semester's worth of Ancient Greek in one month, starting from scratch.

Her clarity of explanation, her command of the material, and her professionalism as a tutor and teacher all made that possible, to the point where when I actually showed up to class, I actually found myself ahead of where everybody else was. I had mastered the material so well thanks to her efforts, that on the first test, I achieved a 104% (even got the extra credit mark), much to the impressed amazement of my new professor.

So when I give her this solid review of her skills, it is not to her as a tutor, or even a teacher. It is to her as a professional. Which is what she is in every sense of the word, as an educator, an admirer, and a bonafide inhabitant of the world of classical languages.

Jenni is simply the best. My son was struggling with Latin last year and I found Jenni online and she was able to catch him up on what he missed in order for him to start the year on a positive note.This year is going well for him . I am happy to report he received his first test grade this year and scored a 35.5/40.

He has now enjoying Latin!

Jenni is absolutely amazing. She’s been providing additional, complimentary instruction once a week for my son who is entering 3rd-year Honors Latin. Language is not his strongest point and he’s periodically struggled with aspects of learning Latin along the way. We needed an expert’s assistance to achieve the academic success I expect from him! Jenni’s personable, caring, and patient manner of education, keen sense of direction, and technical and historical acuity, has made a profound impact on my son’s competency and confidence.

My 12 year old son was hesitant to have Latin lessons based on the experience he had in a classroom setting. He just had his first lesson and immediately told me afterward, "I learned more from Jonathan than I did all year in class." He seemed to really connect with Jonathan and is actually looking forward to his next lesson.

After searching in vain for a latin tutor for our son in our neighborhood, we reluctantly turned our search to the internet. We're so glad we did. Jonathan is an excellent latin teacher! He evaluated our son's current ability level in latin and has guided him in lessons designed to address his weak areas. Our son is a good student and will work hard when challenged, but he also needs structure and guidance from his teacher. Jonathan provided both and has inspired him to pursue latin with enthusiasm. We are very grateful to have found such a wonderful tutor, and we would highly recommend Jonathan Hills to any student serious about improving his/her latin skills.

Pantelis is very, very good. I had studied Greek many years ago and had forgotten nearly all of the little I had learned back then. Pantelis brought me up to speed very quickly. I'd recommend him to anyone.

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!

About McKenzie
I am a recent graduate from UNC Chapel Hill and will be starting my Masters program this coming fall in classical archaeology! My BA is in history and classics, with a strong focus on language and archaeology. I have experience with French, Latin, and Ancient Greek. I love learning about the ancient world and history is something I am very passionate about. I think Latin and Greek are the two most enjoyable languages to learn, and there's never a dull moment with translation materials!
