Italian Language Lessons for kids, students, adults (online/offline)

Are you interested in Italian culture and language? Are you planning to move to Italy for work, study, travel, volunteering? Then this class is for you! Italy is one of the countries where not that many citizens speak English language, therefore it might be difficult to adapt to locals without knowing Italian, at least basic one.

By this class I would like to immerse you into Basic Italian language and culture. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of Italian grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and Italian is not so difficult as it may seem at first!

The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.

About Me

Hi! My nationality is Russian. I finished high school in Finland, graduated as a Bachelor in Business Management in Belgium, had exchange studies in Italy and remote work from Montenegro. Currently I am based in Vienna and work in business development.

I have wide international background (lived in 8 countries). I love learning and teaching languages, as well as travelling, meeting new people, sharing experiences and cultures.

As for my personality, I am an easy-going, friendly person, inspiring and motivating others. I've been teaching languages for 5 years now, feel free to contact me if you need help.

Education

Gymnasium N1, Russian Federation (2007-2014)
Russian Language & Literature (grades: 5 out of 5)

International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), Finland (2014-2018)
Russian Linguistics and Literature (grades: 6 out of 7), Psychology

Bachelor in Business Management (BBM), Belgium (2018-2021)

Bachelor in Marketing and Public Relations (Erasmus), Italy (2019-2020)

Russian language is my native and I've been learning it since my childhood. As for English language, I've been living abroad for 8 years now, always communicating in English and developed it up to a fluent level. I continue learning Italian language now for two years and currently have B2 (I teach only basic Italian).

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching Russian to several Finnish students few years several times a week as well as three Belgian people on a weekly and monthly basis. As for English, I gave classes to Russian people mostly and one international friend of mine. I only taught one person Italian language this summer.

It was an awesome experience for me and for them with a fast language progress, therefore I would like to continue doing it. I really enjoyed the process of teaching languages, so I would really like to help others to learn them here on Apprentus.

I take preparation for the class very seriously, do research to facilitate easier information processing and make lessons more entertaining/interesting for the kids/adults, adapt content and the way of teaching towards different personalities of students and their knowledge levels of the language, generate topics to keep discussion with the students ongoing and search/improve student's weak areas in the language.

Skilled at teaching, communication, time-management, planning, creativity and organization. I easily connect with different students and communicate effectively.

I'm so happy I found Mariia to help me learn Russian. She is extremely professional and friendly, she manages to make it fun and easy to understand - the hours are passing so quickly! After only a couple a lessons my understanding of the Russian language has already improved a lot. You can see Mariia works hard to prepare the lessons and adapt to the level of the student! Definitely recommend you learn with her!
Very skilled, patient and friendly teacher. Maria takes her time and has different ways to explain things. She is a great teacher and I would recommend her to everyone who would like to learn Russian.
Nice and dynamic teacher, providing precise examples to improve student’s russian skills. Flexible on schedule and answering fast. Very pleased with her service.
Russian may seem difficult at the first sight, but I will do my best to prove it is not so hard as it seems! The class is suitable for all people (kids, students, adults) who would like to study Russian for various reasons. I always create a personal program for every student in order to satisfy different levels of Russian and adapt towards specific needs. The focus is, of course, put on studying vocabulary, grammar and most importantly speaking. The student can already say some basics starting from the first class. As soon as some basics are learned, communication will be practiced in a creative ad customized way. I will show various videos, texts and exercises to do together and provide written homework for further practice. The lesson is structured as following (depending on personal needs, goals and knowledge): - Homework overview and check up - New material shown and explained - Examples given for grammar, texts, vocabulary - Discussion of the topic and Q&A session - Extra additional information shared - Conversational practice - New homework given
Did you always dream to learn English language and haven't done it yet? I am here to help you out! It is one of the most popular languages on the planet, therefore it is very important to know it. This class is aimed at individuals (either kids, students or adults) who wish to learn it. You can already know basics and would like to continue learning more further on or you are starting from scratch and have a long way in front to pursue. By this class I would like to immerse you into English language environment. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of English grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and English is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.
Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.

Italian conversation lessons - Beginner to Advanced
Ciao! I am a native Italian and English speaker and I have been teaching teenagers and adults in the last ten years. A History, Cultural Heritage and Chemistry graduate, I am especially passionate about linguistics and different cultures! Our conversation lessons will help you learn and practice your Italian, whether you are a beginner or want to perfect the language. Topics will be tailored to your needs and can range from basic scenarios to more specific ones (professional, travel or cultural context). When necessary we can focus on specific grammar rules and expand vocabulary that is more important to you. Approach - I always encourage the student to develop a personal connection to the language by exploring personal interests and real-life language use. In my lessons, I favour a flexible approach and encourage regular practice, which will definitely help you to develop your Italian and keep it active in the long run.

Emma
Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I'm a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 10 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.

Tanya
Italian, Spanish and English with a polyglot (8 languages) and Professional teacher, language coach
Hi! I'm Tanya. I was born in Italy, but for the last two years of my life I have traveled the world, mainly in Central and South America and the Middle East, traveling and working remotely. I am a professional teacher with 6 years of experience. I worked on the translation of medical and legal articles, panels in the glass museum in Venice and worked as an interpreter at the court of Venice. I have a degree in languages, I am certified in international law and I am a language coach. Language coach means that I not only teach you a language, but also how to learn new languages! I will closely monitor your entire learning journey, to get the most out of your skills! That's because I love learning new languages! That's why after years of studying I became a polyglot (8 languages - Italian, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Dutch) and I came up with a method to teach you the language you want to learn! Over the years I have learned to model my work according to the personal needs of each student and have developed a method that allows my students to learn the language in a fast and fun way. My hobby is my greatest passion is learning other languages, therefore from my experience I can understand many of the problems associated with learning a foreign language. My lessons are based on a specific method that I have designed to facilitate and accelerate learning. My classes are available in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch and Arabic. GROUP LESSONS possible! See you soon! :-)

Learn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past twelve years. I have taught privately and at language schools like La Scuola Italiana del Greenwich Village in New York and ItalCultura, the school of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. During the first few lessons I will make sure you have the tools to pronounce and identify all the sounds of the Italian language. This step is essential! And it will make everything easier afterwards. When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling. When you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I will customize my materials to your interests, needs and desired pace. And because you are learning from a native Italian you will also learn about Italian culture and history. You will absorb a way of thinking, not just grammar rules. I speak a bunch of languages so I know a thing or two about how tedious language classes can be. My terrifying French teacher in middle school made us repeat the same fake dialogue from a really bad book ad nauseam, over and over and over again. Some of those dialogues are carved in my brain: “Bonjour, je m’appelle Richard Drapeau, je viens du Canada, je suis Canadien...” When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling and we will go on “talking walks” because when you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I hold a degree in Lingue e Letterature Straniere (Foreign Languages and Literatures) from Università Roma Tre (equivalent to an American MA) and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. I wrote a thesis about translating a long epic poem by W. H. Auden and I tried to ride a horse across America.
