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 practical use and conversation. In our lessons, we review grammar and vocabulary, work on reading and writing skills and practice conversational Greek. Since we have started studying with Spiros,we have actually been able to get by day to day speaking Greek when we travel to Greece. Our relatives have been amazed at our progress. I highly recommend Spiros to anyone who wants to study modern Greek. Linda C. Chief, Planning, Development and Environmental Services for MTA Capital Construction Company Reviews kathryn typaldos Spiros is a lively and engaging Greek tutor. He combines textbook analysis with real life perspective on learning the language. I highly recommend him! Mon Mar 27 2017 John K As someone with Greek heritage, who did not speak Greek (having forgotten all my Greek learned as a child), I decided to take Greek lessons with Spiros. With his help, I was able to make rapid progress, and when I next went to Greece, my relatives were very surprised, impressed and happy with my new ability to communicate with them! It was great to be able to talk with my older relatives and share stories with them. Mon Mar 27 2017 Jeann Linsley I have been Spiros' student for nine years, and have been extremely pleased with his teaching methods and, most of all, with the results! I have learned enough to hold my own in conversations with native Greek speakers, and feel confident as well in my comprehension and reading and writing skills. Spiros is patient but firm, and sensitive to my particular learning style.
