Qualified italian student offering Italian and Latin lessons in Edinburgh

While studying Social Anthropology and Politics, I would like to exploit my love for languages as well as my inner desire of bringing with me a piece of my cultural background. Teaching is a mutual exchange in which everyone can enlarge his points of view. My lessons are shaped according to needs and goals students want to meet. I think everyone has his own better way of learning and peculiar strengths and weaknesses, and it is important to know these ones in order to succeed.
I adopt an innovative approach, which involves speaking, listening and studying with interactive media. My purpose is to work on the four parts of the language (Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading). I carefully select the material I use.
I want my lessons to be stimulating and consider them to be a moment of mutual growth. I like my students to be enthusiastic of learning and always ready to be challenged.
I have studied Latin language and literature, Italian, Ancient Greek, philosophy (etcetera) for 5 years and I have been teaching for three years. Thanks to private tutoring, I have developed a profound empathy (it is important to recognise needs and skills of students since I tailor my classes according to their attitudes and levels) as well as effective methods to overcome difficulties learners would eventually meet.
I'm very dynamic so I do not want standard classes in which students simply receive notions, but a stimulating environment where everyone can learn by getting into Italian culture as well as making comparisons and discussing about different topics.

Extra information

About Me

I'm an open minded and comprehensive person, I'm the kind of person that always sees the bright side. My purpose is to make my lessons clear, stimulating and easy! (no standard/frontal lessons where you just receive notions).
We are going to discuss together about our cultural backgrounds and know each other.
I consider teaching to be a significant way for improving your points of view and I see my teaching as an opportunity to cultural exchanging.
I like my students to be enthusiastic of learning and always ready to be challenged.

Experience / Qualifications

Language Certification in Latin - University of Palermo
Certification of Digital Enabler in a project aimed to teach how to use computers to elderly people
Tour guide in a FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) project in Palermo, my hometown.
I am studying Social Anthropology and Politics at the University of Edinburgh. Classics are one of the biggest interests of mine; I started studying Latin and Ancient Greek languages and literature 6 years ago and I have been teaching for three years. I think studying these languages led me to be more aware of who I am as well as understand what is really worth. Latin (Ancient greek too) lessons consist of two different parts: grammar and literature. By studying grammar you are not going to just receive boring notions about the structure of the language, but you are going to deepen processes and rules that form Latin; with this method we are going to discuss about Latin and Greek mindset and then discuss about important themes studied by ancient people in literature. Furthermore, according to your needs and goals, we can exercise on translation of texts.

Ale
Spanish classes online and/or at home in Edinburgh
Hello! I am a university student at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and I am currently in Edinburgh. If you are a beginner or want to improve your Spanish? Don't be afraid to start. My classes are focused on developing your communication and expression skills, they are 100% linguistic immersion. These are classes that I have taught and in which I have more experience, if you want to learn Spanish to travel, you need to improve your academic grades, conversation-only classes, interesting topics, language reinforcement or you want to improve your communication with your friends/family Spanish speakers. So that you have an idea of what my classes are like: o Academic classes we learn grammar and vocabulary, conversation. o In conversation classes we talk about different topics + expand vocabulary and We correct pronunciation errors. o In travel classes we learn about how to ask for directions, ask for prices, order food, etc. All classes are flexible and adapted to you with the goals you set. At home, online or at an intermediate point

Eleonora
Italian classes for all levels, online or in person!
My lessons are a mix of conversational Italian and grammar explanations, with the aid of written and online resources to practice vocabulary and grammar. I typically start from the Italian words and expressions you might already know (everyone knows more Italian than they think!) and take it from there, with plenty of simulated scenarios where you get to speak like a native among natives (and I get to ridicule myself imitating all sorts of Italian people!). When explaining a new topic, I like to encourage students to use their insight, nudging them when necessary. I have observed how even absolute beginners can easily guess the meaning of a new word or the way a certain word will behave, once certain patterns between and within Italian and English (and possibly other languages) are highlighted. When a student reaches the correct conclusion with just a little help, that is highly rewarding for both the student and the teacher! For more advanced students, the focus is often on vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar nuances. I like to choose a topic together and subsequently bring a written text (like a newspaper article), from which to extract more specialised vocabulary, and which will serve as a basis for discussions and debates.

Justine
French class/lessons in Edinburgh (online or at home)
French is a very beautiful language but this one is rather complex. I offer fun learning, adapted to the knowledge of the apprentice. The goal here is to progress by taking the time necessary to memorize each notion. The first course will focus on an assessment of the apprentice's level in order to subsequently offer a personalized program adapted to level.

Pablo
Native Spanish tutoring for English Speaking Students
As one of the most spoken languages in the world, learning Spanish from an early age can allow children not just to ease into the grammar and spelling but also adapt to correct pronunciation. Being billingual from a personal experience has opened me a tremendous amount of opportunities. From hospitality jobs to work experience abroad. Learning Spanish will also aid in the learning of other languages such as French or Italian. During my IGCSE's, I achieved a Grade of A* (96%), and most of it I attribute to my already fluent level in Spanish. Classes will follow a progressive increase in level and challenge. My first class will be analysing their current level and how easy the student grasps the language, and from there set weekly goals for them to reach. My priority is for them to learn as much as possible the accent and correct pronunciation of the words, followed then by learning of sentence structure.

Beginner / Intermediate Level Turkish Reading/Writing/Speaking Lessons from Native
I'm a Turkish bookworm that has been subjected to the in-depth curriculum of the Turkish education system for 12 years. I've been brought up by my author & Turkish literature graduate grandparents, who were ruthless when it came to Turkish grammar/spelling rules. My experience in academia has shown me that we all learn differently. I prefer tailoring my teaching methods upon learning more about what works for the student. I'm a Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience from the University of Edinburgh. I work in a research laboratory part-time and have prior experience in teaching conversational Turkish.

Phillip
Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!
