“Hanna is a motivated Finnish language teacher, the way she teaches Finnish online is unique, encouraging, and stress free. I had many Finnish courses before taking online lessons with Hanna, but I think what Hanna taught me during less than just 20 hours, was more practical than all the other courses. P.S. Don’t miss reading her blog if you’re planning to learn Finnish.” - Nick, Iran


My name is Hanna Männikkölahti. I’m a native Finn and a professional Finnish teacher. I earned my Master’s Degree from the University of Jyväskylä, and I’ve worked as a Finnish teacher since 2001. I have taught in different summer courses, schools and also at the university level, but now I’m really enjoying my freedom as an entrepreneur.

In addition to private teaching, I also simplify novels into easy Finnish, lecture about easy Finnish and write a blog called Random Finnish Lesson. Lately, I've started to organize workshop weekends for my colleagues. 

I am married and I have two children. My family is bilingual, and both Finnish and English are used at home. I am very interested in multilingualism and language learning in general.

I live Jyväskylä, but I teach online all over the world. You can study in the comfort of your home, or anywhere you want to be.

I usually teach via Zoom, Skype or Whereby, and use Google Docs to share and edit documents.

With a private teacher, you can study anything that you want and need, using any material that is suitable for you. 

I prefer teaching between 7.10 and 16.00 Finnish time. (East European summer / winter time,  UTC+2 or 3)

If you are interested, fill in the following form and let’s set up the first meeting. You can book the next session after our meeting, or email me later. 


I charge 110 euros for a 45 minute session. The 24 % VAT is included in the price. I don't charge for cancelled or forgotten lessons. 

I usually send a bill after three sessions, and my students can pay me through online banking or Wise.  Remember to ask if your employer would pay for the lessons!

At the moment, I have availability on Mondays at 10.00, 11.00. and 12.00. 7.10 in the morning is also available on most days.

If there times don't work for you, leave a message, and I'll put you on a waiting list.  You can also check out other Finnish teachers on this list:
