Evangelia Keramyda 


Born and raised in Greece, I have lived in New York since 2005. I hold a bachelor degree from the Manhattan School Of Music in Music Composition and a Master of Arts from NYU in Music and Film Scoring. Since moving to New York in addition to teaching music I have been teaching modern Greek to students of all ages and have also received my Certificate for Teaching Greek Languge from the University of Thessaloniki. 

I have graduated from the Aristotle University Of Thessaloniki with a Bachelor in Special Education. I have been teaching here in Greece for the last 15 years but I have also had the priviledge of living and teaching Greek language to non native spaekers in New York for 3 years. This experience is what made me excited to join GOLL, so I could continue to educate non native speakers on the Greek Language.

I hold a Bachelor degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in French Language and Literature. I am currently studying at the University of the Aegean to complete my degree in Special Education. My passion for languages has motivated me to also study English, Italian, Spanish and Russian. My love of languages is what made me  join GOLL so that I could teach the Greek language to the Greeks of the Diaspora.

Born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. My first university degree was in Economics, which was followed by a short career in the banking sector. Second university degree was in German Literature at the Aristoteles University of Thessaloniki. I have a Diploma of  Translation from the Goethe Institute of Thessaloniki. Fluent in German and English but also with good knowledge of Italian, French and Dutch. I have been teaching English and German to children and adults for over 15 years and am very excited to be part of the team at GOLL so that I can also teach my native language of Greek.
