Native speaker of Greek with 15 years teaching experience. I am enthusiastic and passionate about offering my students the opportunity to explore the maximum of their potential and achieve success.
My lessons are communicative and include all skills, with emphasis on building up students' confidence in speaking. Due to my 15 years' experience in the education sector, I have the ability to address my students` interests and adapt to their needs from the very first lesson.
As I teach all sorts of nationalities, cultural references is one of the most important components of my lessons as it is proven to be an enjoyable and most effective learning strategy. I have a wide range of material to choose from, including video, audio, flashcards and other games.
My students benefit from my knowledge of music and experience as music educator as I can easily connect learning language to Greek fun songs. This helps them learn and memorise specific language areas, such as vocabulary, phrases, numbers, or idioms.
Online lessons are time and cost effective. They place at the comfort of your house via Skype/FaceTime and you would only need good internet connection! A variety of online tools and interactive material makes the sessions fun and productive. On top of speaking practice, I provide audio and video material for further practice later in all skills.
Learning languages opens up exciting opportunities. Speaking Greek is a challenging, but incredibly rewarding, experience!
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Regina will plan your first lesson with care.
Native speaker of Greek and qualified teacher, I have worked as a Greek tutor and GCSE examiner in the UK and Greece. My additional experience as a Violin and EFL teacher in both countries at various language schools and summer schools has given me valuable insight on students' needs and interests.
I have been preparing students from all over the UK for GCSE, AS and A-level exams. All my students have achieved A or A* in their exams (references upon request).
Also, I am delivering lessons to adults who want to start learning or improve their Greek. I have short-term students, who afterwards were able to use their Greek on their very first visit to Greece or Cyprus, as well as long-term students whose progress and enjoyment I am excited to witness in our lessons. They are all passionate about learning the language and in our lessons they are encouraged to use it from the very beginning.
I have British adult students who have been visiting Greece for a number of years and wish to learn/develop their Greek in order to improve their communication with the locals.
One of my students is married to a Greek person and is learning Greek so that she can communicate better with her husband, his family and friends.
With an Italian student who visits Greece regularly for holidays, I have completed most of the chapters from a series of books available for adults and am now planning my own lessons using mainly the internet as a resource. Cultural references, idioms and sayings constitute an essential and fun element in our sessions!
With a boy aged 5, born and raised in London, second generation Greek, I work on building their confidence in speaking mainly through a variety of fun activities, such as games, songs, role-playing, flash-cards, story-telling.
With a boy (Primary) and his sister (Secondary), second generation, I follow the Greek Curriculum and the books provided by the Greek Ministry of Education supplementing with extra material when necessary. All skills implemented.
With an adult of Cypriot origin, I construct my lessons in a way so that speaking covers around 90% of the session. The material we use include everyday prompts, magazines, online websites, videos and we also follow a coursebook especially designed for adults learning Greek as a foreign language.

Perfect! Engaging lesson delivery that mixes general conversation with thorough technical explanations with also learning about wider Greek culture. In a year she's got me from knowing zero Greek to being confident with the basics. She's also been great at keeping my motivation up which is much needed for such a difficult language. With the lockdown right now and not being able to see anyone outside my house my lesson with Regina feels more like learning with a friend rather than a teacher!
Perfect! My 9-year old daughter has been having regular Greek language lessons with Regina for over a year now. We cannot praise her enough for effort, consistency and keeping these lessons engaging and appropriate. Thank you for all your patience Regina.
Perfect! I began learning Greek to just get a few basics words and phrases for my travels, but have loved my lessons with Regina so much that I have continued learning with her. I hope to carry on as long as she will have me! The lessons are well guided and time is taken to help me make my Greek conversational and relevant to the things I may encounter in various situations. I have also learnt to read and write, which has far surpassed my expectations from when I initially began. Regina takes real care over homework and tasks set outside of class, which is really key to my learning. Studying Greek with Regina also allows me to access cultural references in Greece, which I would never be able to get using just an app or trying to self teach. More than anything, I look forward to speaking with Regina every week, as she is so upbeat and interesting to talk to!
Perfect! After 18 months of tuition, I think I can say with some authority that Regina is a fantastic Greek tutor and a lovely person. First of all, she is very available and accommodating to try to come up with times for lessons that suit my busy schedule. In terms of her teaching, she has the knowledge and flexibility to adapt her teaching style and method to the needs of the student, and as I've improved and wanted to explore more complex grammar she has skilfully interwoven that into the lessons, as well as leaning more to the speaking side when I needed that.
At that price, it's a steal and you won't regret choosing Regina for your Greek lessons!
Perfect! I've been taking adult conversation classes with Regina over Skype for 18 months.
Prior to starting classes, I'd been with my Greek partner an embarrassing length of time without having learnt much Greek; I’d also had a bad experience in a group class run in my local city, which was entirely focussed on grammar. Both of these things had led to me being insecure and tentative about getting started! Regina was able to quickly help me get past this, and focus on building up my spoken Greek. She has always planned classes on topics which are useful and relevant for me, and has dosed up the grammar in bitesize amounts along the way, and keeping my progress going.
Each class is well thought through, supported by varied materials, and includes different types of exercises, some online, some from a textbook, some she's created herself. She's been happy to vary these to fit what best suits my style of learning. I have a busy work life, and Regina has been flexible in setting up our classes at convenient times, and is comfortable adapting each session on the cuff based on whether I've had time to do any homework (or not!).
Overall, Regina is a talented and highly qualified tutor, she is genuinely friendly and interested in engaging on a personal level with her tutees. She’s been supportive in her approach, and I've really enjoyed all our classes, and how far I've progressed. If you’re looking for a tutor, look no further and send her a message!
Perfect! Great teacher, easy to work with :-)
Perfect! I started my Greek tutoring lessons with Regina in January this year. At first, I had my doubts about taking online tutoring classes as I was unsure how effective it would be but Regina has been such an incredible teacher. She is patient and an expert in her teaching methods. She goes step by step- first covering basics like grammar rules and then starting to incorporate examples and dialogue making it easier for me to follow and remember. When I have questions, she always takes the time to explain and ensure I understand. After I complete exercises, she provides feedback so I can learn from my mistakes. Given these lessons are for my personal benefit, we do not use a structured schedule of topics but instead, she listens to what topics interest me and builds lessons and exercises to accommodate me. She is always willing to be flexible with her schedule and always lets me know in advance in case we need to reschedule for an alternative date. She responds quickly via email and always sends lesson notes for my review which are extremely helpful. I have been having a wonderful experience so far with Regina and looking forward to many more lessons with her!
Perfect! Regina is a talented and inspirational teacher. She started tutoring our daughter for her Greek GCSE exam a month ago. Not only we are extremely pleased with our daughter’s progress in the Greek language but also very impressed by Regina’s enthusiasm and dedication. She is truly gifted in what she does. Regina makes the tutor-student interaction meaningful and effortless from the first moment. She has the talent of tailoring the tutoring to the educational needs and the personality of the student. Her lessons are relevant, effective and a lot of fun! We are very grateful for her help and feel very lucky to have found her!
Evi contacted me about her daughter, Elektra, who wished to prepare for her Modern Greek GCSE exams. Elektra is very clever and a conscientious student. Working with her is a pleasure as she’s fun during the lesson, mature in her thinking and always on time!
I feel pretty confident to say that her progress so far has shown she will achieve excellent marks in her exam.
When our son married a Greek,we thought it was time we learned Greek.Internet search drew us to sweet-looking,well-qualified Regina.Our hopes and expectations were fully justified.As well as being lovely and very friendly,Regina is an excellent teacher - intelligent,speaks perfect English,has a clear lesson plan but is flexible enough to accommodate her students' wishes and idiosyncrasies.We really enjoyed our sessions with her.We can't recommend her too highly,you'll love her &her teaching activities
I would definitely recommend Regina as a teacher. Regina invested time and effort to get my shy son's interest and in essence lure him into the lessons.She was patient and creative using different material (songs,games,drawings,letter cards) to introduce new concepts, motivate and challenge him.Lessons were a combination of structured and fun activities which worked very well.Regina was very professional but also very personal in her approach.Her enthusiasm & dedication are evident
Regina is easy to work with, and creates very engaging lessons for her students from the start. She truly understands and adapts to the student's learning style, noting the differences between adult and children learners, and paying careful attention to why the student wants to learn. I often don't realise how much I am learning because the lessons are so much fun. I feel increasing confidence not only in my ability to understand and speak Greek, but in my understanding of the country and the culture.
I have had Regina teaching me Greek for over 3 years. I have been always very impressed with her level of professionalism, enthusiasm and flexibility. She has been able to adapt the structure of the lessons to my evolving needs always bringing interesting and engaging content and using a multi-media approach. I have always looked forward to our lessons!
Regina created fun lessons for my children aged 5 and 7. I was amazed to see them from not speaking Greek much to full understanding and making simple sentences within a few months. The games and music she used to motivate and challenge them worked really well! We're all very happy with Regina's teaching and would definitely recommend her!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Regina as a teacher. The lessons she put together were well-structured and fun, and I really felt that they were personalised to me and my speed of learning. Regina was very patient, and would happily spend longer on the things I struggled with. Having free conversation at the start of the lesson was not only practical but really gave me an indication of how I was progressing with the language. Couldn't be happier!
I can recommend Regina as a teacher. She was very knowledgeable, warm and flexible to my needs as a student. I only had a few lessons before visiting my husband's family in Crete and I wish I had started earlier.
