Hello, I’m Alcibiades, your Greek tutor and I’m here to help you!
Are you ready to finally learn greek?
Are you ready to stop wasting time and money in methods that don’t work?
If so you are in the right place! I am a native Greek speaker and a registered teacher in Greece, Scotland and England, I’ve helped a lot of students and I can help you, too!
Forget the traditional, boring way of learning a new language and embrace my unique, fun and highly interactive method! I will show you what you need to do to reach a high level of greek, how you can take control of your learning and finally make progress to greek fluency!
We will use my unique method which combines:
1)My Greek Real Life Simulation Online Game to get immersed in a greek environment from the very beginning and learn as if you were a kid in a highly interactive way!
2) Textbooks and workbooks
3) Ppt presentations
4) Fun and Interactive online softwares and platforms that will help you the most
If you want the full experience of learning greek, then I recommend that we aim to develop all four major language skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing). However, depending on your ultimate goals, any combination of the four will do!
The lessons are being conducted in a friendly, easy to use, highly interactive online platform better than Skype! Few minutes before our session I will send you a link and you will join me!
Here is what we can do with it:
-Use video ( HD voice and video)
-Share our screen
-Use annotations while we’re sharing our screen (like a whiteboard)!
-Share our computer audio; this is a great feature when playing a video or listening a song!
-Play and learn via Quizzes and educational games
-Write with a keyboard or a digital pen (optional)
-Record our sessions
-Much better quality of the call compared to other video conferencing software
-Learn through a real life simulation Online game!!!
Here is what my students enjoy:
-They use methods that actually work
-They learn how to read, write and speak Greek in a special highly interactive way
-They take advantage of the virtual classroom which provides a student friendly environment for everybody, anywhere
-They benefit from the flexibility that an online lesson provides
-They take control of their learning and learn independently
-They enjoy the journey and have lots of fun by using a variety of materials such as songs, videos, games etc
-They make Greek a part of their life
-Adults learn 10x times faster as if they were kids through a Real Life Simulation Online Game immersed in a greek environment ( you won’t find this anywhere else! )
-They eventually make amazing progress!
What few of my students say about my lessons:
-Laura: He is a fantastic teacher – knowledgeable and patient. What really impressed me is that he has managed to pitch lessons perfectly to me – even when I have prior knowledge of Greek that didn’t conform to a specific curricula. He is very flexible and friendly and I leave every lesson excited and invigorated, no matter how tired I was in the beginning! He also makes allowances for my Cypriotisms which is so lovely, as this has often been a sticking point. He has a variety of systems and softwares, which are super easy to use which mean that being online is not a problem at all. I cannot recommend him highly enough
-Caroline: I have spent so long looking for a greek teacher & now I have found the best one of all. Alciviades is a wonderful greek teacher lessons are smart, imaginative, flexible & fun.I love the mythology most of all .Thanks Alciviades & heres to many more.
-Gina: excellent tutor who i highly recommend, he prepared my daughter for greek school and the teachers in the school are very impressed with the education she received from him.

-TeacherSelf-employed, 2017 – present, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
I deliver online Greek lessons to kids, teenagers and adults, both beginners and advanced. I am specialised in cross-curricular approach of teaching and learning that includes aspects of the greek culture and mythology. Apart from teaching greek I train tutors to teach online. I offer webinars where I show step by step how to start teaching (any lesson) Online.
Learning a language can be challenging so I have the patience to explain new concepts and processes.I am a confident, patient, friendly and reliable individual who pays attention to not only academic but also emotional development, always placing students at the center of learning. I strongly believe that learning should be enjoyable and I ensure that my tuition is both personalised and active. I take time to build good working relationships with all my students as I think that happy and relaxed learners are successful learners.
As a tutor, I am able to identify my students’ learning styles and adapt my teaching methods to suit. For example, some students are step learners and tend to remember information that’s presented in tables or charts, whereas other learners feel they’re more effective when chat, discuss and argue.
That’s why I offer you my " Learning Style Assessment " to find out which type of Learner are you! Yeah, that’s right… I adapt my teaching and communication style to suit you, not the other way around because what works with somebody else doesn’t mean it will work with you, as well.
With my method, the Greek Real Life Simulation Online Game, you will learn greek 10x times faster as if you were kids, immersed in a greek environment!
What we do with our Real Life simulation online game is, as much as possible we simulate the environment in which YOU will need to remember, ranging from where you study, to what you hear, and even how you feel.
This is done so as to encode the memory as closely as possible to the environment in which it will be retrieved. We practice in different contexts and settings, so that the knowledge is encoded more thoroughly in YOUR mind!
Of course all of these are combined with efficient workbooks, textbooks, interactive apps and software, and real time feedback to ensure YOUR way to greek fluency.
And don’t forget spaced repetition over time is an effective way to encode learning and the best kind of repetition that leads to effective learning is deliberate practice!
So, are you ready to get on the road to Greek fluency?
