Are you ready to start speaking Icelandic? It's such a vibrant, unique and beautiful language and I'd love to help you gain the confidence and knowledge to start speaking it.
I have been teaching Icelandic for foreigners since 2008. I have taught people at all stages - from total beginners to advanced students. My students come from all corners of the globe, with different strengths, weaknesses, experiences, and education backgrounds. All of them amazing in their own way and have taught me so much.
The teaching location may be at my house in Reykjavík, online via Zoom or at your place, depending on what is most convenient.
The benefits of private tutoring are that I can cater to your particular needs instead of addressing a group of people with different needs and backgrounds and having limited time for each student.

Recommendations from my students:
Francesca Wallace, Italy (student at level 2):
I highly recommend Hófí as a teacher since I had the pleasure to be one of her students during Covid 2020 (not an easy-time at all).
Hófí is very patient and organized teacher who develops inspiring relationships with her students. Her ability to connect and her talent at teaching simple concepts, even through online courses, are exceptional. She has a great initiative and positive attitude, which is important for someone who's teaching Icelandic (not easy here either).
I recommend Hólmfríður as a teacher because of her willingness to listen and interact with the students, her mood and attitude. I sincerely hope to have her in my next course.
Stella Anton, Greece (student at level 4):
Hófí is an engaging and fun teacher! She finds exciting ways to make the classes interesting and she motivates students to speak and use the language because the subjects discussed in the class are so compelling. She is also very good in introducing Icelandic history and culture to students in fun ways, so that one really wants to be part of this society. I miss being her student!
Ferenc Ordina, Hungary (a private student):
Hófí is a very good teacher with high teaching skills and a determination for educate students always to the best of her knowledge. She is very patient and very easy to work with. Her explanations are crystal clear and are always on point. I can only recommend her!
