I’ve been receiving lessons from George for 1 year.
He is absolutely brilliant. He has a unique strategy that conveys the subject material in a way that the recipient has to ‘think a bit’. Anyway I certainly have to ‘think a bit!’
He is consummate in the English language but ,with me , uses Greek to make me try and work it out. If I am really stuck he will revert to English , luv it!
I look forward to further tuition with George.

I'm really enjoying my Greek lessons with George. He is a great teacher, his lessons are very interactive and informative and after each lesson I come away knowing more words and phrases and things are slowly starting to click into place. Thank you.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING A LESSON. THANK YOU.
I live in Greece, a few miles away from the capital, Athens. I have been a professional tutor of Greek (my first language) and English for over 25 years. I have the reputation of a patient and understanding teacher. In my free time, I prefer to roam about in nature or listen to music and watch films.
Qualifications & Experience
I graduated from the English & Greek Language & Philology Department of the University of Athens (BA). Since then, I have attended approximately 500 hours of seminars and conferences on Language Teaching Methodology. I have tutored students from various countries and industry backgrounds in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. I have extensive experience of a wide variety of examinations as well as of English for Specific Purposes (Business, Economy, Telecommunications, Law, Maritime Studies, Information Technology, Medicine) thanks to my background as a certified translator and interpreter.
First of all, I establish the level and needs of each student. This will help me to focus on the specific skill(s) that the student wants to develop (listening, speaking, reading or writing). Then, I decide on the appropriate teaching material and the average hours of the course. My extensive experience enables me to adapt any material to the level and needs of each student.
Each lesson has a specific aim. Most lessons end with homework assignment, feedback on the student’s performance and tips on further progress.
At regular intervals, I seek feedback from the student that what we have been doing is to his/her satisfaction. The student’s feedback will help me to decide whether to continue in the same way or design a new syllabus.
I conduct my lessons on a special teleconference platform that offers me the possibility of uploading and handling audio and video files, as well as almost all other files. The student is exposed to and uses the language from the very first lesson. I treat language as a tool that helps people to communicate and express their everyday needs, rather than as system of rigid rules. I use a wide variety of teaching materials ranging from course books to stories, newspaper articles and songs.
