Welcome to



You are certainly

in the right place!



I’m Dr. Maria Mertzani, your teacher and founder of GreekForYou Ltd.  I am a native Greek speaker with a BA Hons in Greek Philosophy, from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki – Greece, and an MPhil and a PhD from the University of Bristol, U.K, in Applied Linguistics of the Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs).  I have been teaching Greek in Greece and the U.K. for the past 15 years, teaching children as young as five years old, as well as adult professionals in various organisations and institutions such as the University of Bristol – U.K., Cyprus Educational Commission U.K., colleges, performing arts schools and youth centres.  From 2011 to 2013, I was the Headteacher of the Greek School of Bristol, in Bristol – U.K.

Currently, I am a Research Associate at the Department of Languages and Communication, in the Federal University of Pelotas, RS-Brazil, and a member of the Hellenic Association of the South West of England, U.K.

Teaching such a wide variety of students has taught me a lot about the importance of personalising each course, making the lessons as enjoyable and as relevant to the interests and needs of my learners. For your convenience, GreekForYou provides tailor-made Greek lessons, covering a broad selection of choices to choose from: one-to-one tuition, group lessons, lessons in Greece, lessons at your school, your business, your home, and lessons online via Skype.

You have the choice of learning Greek with no age limitations and at competitive prices.

At home, at work, on the move, learn Greek anywhere!

My learners are mainly people who want to learn Greek because they visit or they want to visit Greece for holidays.  For this reason, GreekForYou offers you the option to practice Greek in different locations in Greece throughout the year; in the mainland of Greece and/or in the Greek islands, while enjoying your holidays.

Apart from the lessons, GreekForYou can assist you with translations, editing, proofreading and other consultancy and localisation services from English to Greek and vice versa.  Our professionalism, honesty and transparency guarantees quality every time.

GreekForYou goes around the globe with the aim to facilitate your learning in Greek. Our goal is to break down your language barriers, by helping you to speak Greek, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I am looking forward for your messages, whatever your reason is to want Greek.
