Learn Greek through play, design, music, comics and everything nice! You name it!

Methodology

Do you want to learn a super interesting language that comes from ancient times? Do you find language teaching extremely difficult and not engaging? There is always a fun way of doing even the most boring stuff! I am an extremely creative person, a native Greek speaker and I can help you learn this great language no matter if you need it for academic purposes, for a hobby or for keeping your children close to their roots.
I hold a full enhanced DBS check, mandatory for working with children.

Background

I have 5 years of academic teaching experience with adults and young adults and 4 years experience in private tutoring (3-7 years old children). I am determined to make my classes fun, engaging and relevant to my students no matter their age or interests!

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $36/h

Details

Depending on the student level and the hours of tutoring per week the rates could be discussed and further discounted.
A small fee will be added to the price for travel costs if the lesson takes place outside zone 3.
