I’m Manos, a native Greek speaker from the island of Crete. I offer Greek tutoring to all levels and ages. I was a teacher and private tutor for 12 years, so I have a significant amount of experience teaching all ages (young children - adults).
My approach to teaching is using fun activities and art while learning. Fun has a positive effect on motivation levels, determining what we learn and how much we retain. If the experience is fun, learners will stay curious and keep coming back for more. My goal is to convert the learning process into a fun project.
Culture and history are unique features that I bring to my lessons. I am Cretan and live the languages that I teach. I bring the authenticity of the languages into my curriculum and projects, which is a valuable and exciting component to learning languages and being exposed to the culture. I understand deeply the Linguistic Historical evolution from the artificially constructed Erasmic pronunciation of ancient Greek to the Hellenistic Era and Alexander the Great, trough the Byzantine Empire the Koine language and the nowadays spoken Greek.
How I structure classes:
1) discuss your goals, strengths, and weaknesses
2) create a personalized lesson plan for you based on your learning style
3) provide feedback and optional homework to help you accomplish your goals
I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Manos was great with the lesson got to know me a bit evaluated where I was with my Greek and was extremely knowledgeable I would recommend him 10/10 times !!
Manos helped me refresh my beginners' modern greek, covering the alphabet, diphthongs, and pronunciation. He explained concepts in great detail at a pace that I could follow easily. I will definitely continue working with him!
Manos is knowledgeable and encouraging. He listens to and understands his students, and he can modify his lesson according to the student's particular needs & interests. We went over the alphabet, phonetics, some verb conjugations, and simple phrases. Great lesson!
Manos couldn't have been more patient with my two children (4) and (6). He was knowledgeable and encouraging, and his pronunciation of the Greek language is perfect. We're so glad we chose Manos for Greek lessons.
