Italian with an experienced native speaker (University of Glasgow)

I am a native Italian speaker studying Geography at the University of Glasgow. I have recently done an International Exchange at the University of Toronto. However, my real passion is teaching my language.

This is my third year tutoring. I have done both online and face-to-face lessons, teaching Italian and English.

In Glasgow, I work as an Italian tutor, teaching my language to students from different nationalities and with any sort of backgrounds and needs.
In Canada, I continued teaching, working online.

I also have a classical background. Studying Latin and Ancient Greek for five years at Liceo Classico (high school), I learnt grammar and acquired a deep knowledge of classical literature and culture. I am enthusiastic about sharing what I know and about having friendly relationships with students.

In the past years, I volunteered in a primary school (Scuola Primaria Villaggio Lamarmora, Biella, Italy) and I worked as the assistant of the teacher in drama courses for children at ‘Opificio dell’arte’ (Biella, Italy). In 2017 I volunteered in a mission in Peñas, Bolivia, teaching Maths to local students. In Rome in 2019 I worked as a volunteer Italian and English teacher for foreigners. These experiences taught me to understand the different needs of students, both younger and older. I really like helping people and learning something from them!

I also enjoy studying languages myself: I speak Italian, English, Spanish and Portuguese, and I am studying French and German. Therefore, I understand what people can find difficult both in grammar and in conversation.

Giovanni takes time to get to know you and where you are with your Italian. He develops lessons to suit your needs and adapts them accordingly. He is both patient and articulate both in Italian and English which greatly assists with my learning. I would highly recommend Giovanni.

Aprende Español para la vida real. Mejora tu comunicación en tu entorno laboral y social.
Ofrezco clases bien estructuradas en las que el alumno aprende a leer, escribir, escuchar y hablar, siempre, en un contexto real. Combino diferentes tipos de actividades y materiales para hacer la clase amena y que el alumno se sienta cómodo. A mis alumnos de español , les recomiendo salir del aula y conocer Barcelona: visitar una exposición, ir de compras, al mercado y hacer diferentes actividades para practicar el idioma en situaciones reales. Creo que cada alumno tiene su propio ritmo de aprendizaje y se debe respetar. Con un buen profesor todos pueden alcanzar su objetivo.

Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

Tutoring in Spanish as a foreign language with a native speaker.
I think the title is quite self explanatory :D I'm used to work with all kinds of levels and ages. I'm convinced that a teacher is not only a source of information, but also an inspirer and a motivator. I will make our meetings interesting and amusing, and I will adapt fully to your goals. One never end learning a language. I am studying three myself. This helps me to understand the struggles and difficulties of the process. You will have all my patience, sympathy and encouragement. Being able to communicate in other languages is an amazing and satisfying experience. It is also a valuable and practical skill. It will open you to a myriad of possibilities, friends and cultures. Spanish in particular, which is spoken in a big portion of the Globe. What are you waiting for? Let's start!

Jaume
SPANISH APPENDICES FOR BEGINNERS AND / OR ADVANCED PERSONS
In my lessons I will teach you Spanish. We adjust the lessons depending on your goal, level and pace. I teach in English, but my mother tongue is Spanish. In the lessons we deal with grammar and vocabulary. And several practical exercises. Students who need tutoring, just like adults who want to learn fluent Spanish, can come to me. During the coronavirus situation, lessons will be given via skype. For more information, send me a message :)

Italian lessons for everyone, Italian for adults
Hey! My name is Mimi. I am a native speaker, and I teach Italian and English. I have a bachelor - Italian and art history teacher. I am an experienced teacher who uses all moderners methods. I think it is important to take into account the personal wishes of my students when designing a curriculum. Everyone learns with a specific goal and with the help of a tailor-made program, this goal is best achieved. For example, it is possible to focus on Italian grammar or on speaking skills or on all aspects (reading, listening, speaking and writing skills).

Emma
- Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills. Most important is that each course is based on the needs, interests and availability of the student. - The method is mainly what is called communicative, aimed at stimulating the student to speak immediately and put the focus on the functional aspect of the language. For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.

Manuela
Spanish class for beginner and intermediate with native speaker
Spanish has become one of the most spoken languages in the world, so why shouldn't you learn a new language? This course will teach you about the Spanish grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms, etc. And the best of all, is that it is taught by a native speaker. the course is taught in English for the beginner, for those who are more advance will be taught only in Spanish.
