Hi. My name is Tom Lerner. I am a native speaker and teacher of Hungarian living in Budapest, Hungary. I teach English—which I also speak at a native level—Hungarian, and Ancient Greek online. I graduated with a Master of Arts degree in American Studies from ELTE University, Budapest, where I also studied Ancient Greek. I have been teaching as a private tutor for 23 years, as well as in different schools and educational institutions.

I offer conversational Hungarian lessons to kids, teenagers, and adults who already know some Hungarian, but are in need of a native speaker or a professional teacher to practice the language with. However, I can also teach you Hungarian if you are a total beginner.

My hourly rate for a private lesson is $33, and our first lesson is free of charge. For more information, please call or email me:

+36-20-610-8355 (Hungary)


(You can call me on my US number, or if you prefer to call via Facetime, please use the Hungarian one.)
