Getting an education in a close-knit environment with a tutor you feel comfortable with is a major advantage. Many students don’t get to work on pronunciation as much because they hold back out of embarrassment. In a one-on-one learning environment, there is no judgment from the class, and there is no waiting on the needs of other students. You get the time and attention you deserve, which will only speed up the learning process. Concepts will also be taught in a way that you can understand.
If you want to truly learn this language, then you have to find a Greek tutor. Working in the classroom environment might not be the best way for you to get it. This is because there is a ton of external stimulus that is there taking your mind off the important things. There are other students who might text and use their computers during class or hold their own conversations. Then there are the students who take all of the teacher’s attention by answering all of the questions, also known as the teacher’s pets. But those are just things that are happening in the class. You could be having a bad week because of something totally unrelated to Greek or school in general. Not to mention all of the other classes that you are focused on at the same time. All of this can be absolutely overwhelming when it comes to trying to learn Greek. You have to set aside hours each and every day to work with this language, just as a musician spends time each day with their instrument. If you do not do this you will not learn because half an hour a day in a classroom setting is not going to cut it at all.
With that being said, if you do spend time with the material you absolutely have to make sure that you are doing everything the right way. If you sit down in the library and go over the materials only to be mispronouncing something or using the wrong translation then it is going to hurt you in the long run. This is the last thing that you want to happen to you and is truly counterproductive to you learning this language. But when you work with one of our qualified tutors they will be able to keep you on the right track. They will instill great habits in you from the jump so that you can use them now and later on. There is no excuse for you not to pass your class and become fluent in this language if you do the work and pay attention to your tutor. In a regular classroom setting your teacher will not be able to give you individualized teaching lessons. Some offer after hours but those only last so long and more often than not you leave feeling more frustrated than before.
When you work with one of our tutors you get the chance to start from scratch with your own personal teacher. You will supply your syllabus and graded materials so they can see what your problems are in the class as well as how your teacher grades. Then they will fill those gaps with their knowledge of Greek. It will truly be an enlightening experience for you as you walk away with more knowledge of the language and the culture after each session. Being able to hold a conversation is one of the major struggles most people face when learning Greek or any language. This is because the classroom is also not ideal for this either. We know that there are different ways to converse. There is what you learn in the classroom and what you learn in the streets. Our tutors are fluent in both styles and can provide expert feedback to you in regards to how you are speaking. In class, you typically only talk to another student, who is on the same level as you or lower and then once in a while you get to answer a question during class. Our tutors will hold full conversations with you so you can work on both your listening and speaking skills. This will truly help you become fluent in Greek trifecta as you will be a better reader, writing and conversationalist in the language.
Working with a tutor means that you can choose a teacher who’s teaching style fits you. HeyTutor knows how frustrating it can be to have a teacher that you don’t understand or simply just don’t like. This can make the learning process frustrating, unexciting, and challenging. Matching with one of our fantastic Greek tutors will help eliminate your challenges and help you succeed.
