    Teaching Approach

    I have a long experience in teaching foreign students of all nationalities and I use a communicative and informal approach, friendly and easy going to help the student feel at ease throughout the lesson. But the latter can be more formal, 'serious' and structured if that is the wish of the student. Constant conversation with the language taught and no other language spoken, if requested.

    Program Description

    Lessons based on the four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking equally. Basic foundation of Italian grammar and the phonetic sounds of the language, plus conversation, expansion of vocabulary, listening and reading comprehension , with pronounciatio n correction. Custom-made lessons, interactive learning.

    Teaching Experience

    I have been teaching Italian to foreign students (all levels and age) for many years. I simply enjoy teaching, sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm and learning new things myself from the students each time. I can teach Italian on all areas and I would define myself as communicative and very, and I mean very, patient!(I am used to teaching very young children, too).

    Teacher Training

    Degree in Foreign languages and literature (2002, Rome University)
    Thesis topic: 'Funzione iconografica dell'abbiglia mento femminile nella commedia tardo-vittori ana'
    Evaluation: 110/110
    I also have The Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) and the TESL/TEFL certification .

    Frequently Asked Questions

    a) What is your teaching schedule ? Once or twice a week for 1 to 2 hours per class or even 2-3 times a week. We can set up a time and customize the schedule to suit the student's needs. Evening hours or afternoons (local time) preferred, but rest assured that we will find a convenient time and date for both of us. Available on weekends.

    b) What is your payment policy? Payment in advance is preferred (Pay Pal or MoneyBooker). A lesson should be cancelled no later than 9:00 pm (my time) of the day before. If the lesson is cancelled with a shorter notice (same day or little time before lesson is due), because I have other students and a schedule, it will be charged as a regular lesson.

    c) Are one-to-one lessons tailor made to suit my particular needs and level ? Yes, absolutely. I always send students an Assessment test to assess their level if they are willing to take it and unless they are absolute begginers, of course, and then we usually go from there. I then prepare each lesson carefully, and that includes preparing files and setting exercises for the lesson and for your homework as well as scanning books pages. The prices for each lesson include all this plus correcting all your homework. I can also create a custom syllabus for those students who plan to take a minimum of 10 lessons.

    c) Where are you located exactly ? I am Roman, but I now live in Ferrara, in the region of Emilia Romagna, in the north east of Italy. So if you are seeking for private tuition, not online but live in person and you are going anywhere else (Milan, Venice, Florence or even Bologna, the closest of them all) I regret I cannot help you. I would love to, though, so please consider the online or phone options. And I would be most happy to deliver lessons in person if you are planning to come over here, of course. Ferrara is a charming town, recognized as a UNESCO site since 1993, definately worth a visit !

    So, really looking forward to hearing from all of you Italian-enthu siastics :-)
