Although I'm a foreigner, I have a University degree in modern Greek and teach modern Greek to foreigners since 9 years. I only accept one person or a couple at a time, since this is the more tense and effective method, but selected groups of friends are possible upon request.
I do not teach chit-chat, neither the so-called “global method”, pretending to teach students current expressions and sentences useful in daily life. This method does not give a student the possibility to progress on his own, since he/she does not have the necessary basic knowledge to do so. Learning a language, any language, is based on three pillars: to read and to write correctly by learning the alphabet; learning gradually its grammar; last but not least: studying at home regularly and seriously. This allows the student to progress step by step and to understand the basics of the language, which in turn allows the student to expand his knowledge by self-study, in parallel with the weekly sessions.
A teacher is a guide who helps the student through these steps, explaining the particularities of the Greek language progressively. It is up to the student to learn the vocabulary and to study. Without studying nothing goes.
My method has proven its value and effectiveness and you can read some comments of satisfied students on the website I recently created:
If you have any doubt, I am the first and only foreigner ever appointed by the Greek Ministry of Continuous Education to teach Greek to adults during organized sessions in order to obtain a Certificate of Attainment (levels Α1, Α2, Β1, Β2, Γ1, Γ2)!
