Alexander
Learn Italian with Alex! Conversation, grammar and culture
I am bilingual and have had over 15 students learning Italian over the past three years. I can teach you a lot about both the language and culture belonging to Italy. I either let my students choose what topics to focus on or I give them a programme to follow. If my students are children (from 4-11), I help them with simpler topics (numbers, colours and basic grammatical concepts). Homework will also be handed out to the students who have extra time.

Mariangela
Italian, French for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Students
I teach Italian and French to Primary and Secondary school aged students. I also teach foreign languages to adults and Preschool children. The beginners will start with easy exercises and short dialogues to learn the language. Intermediate and Advanced students will do grammar exercises to improve their language. I would like to speak Italian and French to the students right away. We will write dialogues and talk about interesting topics all together. I usually use the Internet as well. My goal is to keep students challenged yet interested in my lesson.

Marianna
Experienced Tutor of Italian and English as a Second language
I am a tutor of Italian and English as a foreign/second language. I had the opportunity to teach in different contexts with multicultural groups of students from many countries and backgrounds. I am currently teaching Italian to individual students and corporate clients with different language requirements and purposes. I have also conducted a preparation course for Italian GCSE and A level exams in London. I teach to all levels and ages using a communicative and student-centred approach. My lessons are very interactive and focused on real life and cultural situations. I care about my students’ learning progress and achievements and I am keen to guide them in a friendly, dedicated and respectful manner. Moreover, one of my main goals as a teacher is to enable my students to enjoy the experience of communicating, thinking and reacting in a foreign language.

Buongiorno amici! - Learn ITALIAN, the most melodious language ever
Are you looking forward to learn Italian with young and enthusiastic native speaker? This is the class for you! I can't wait to teach you all I know about my wonderful language, using both traditional methods (grammar is so important!) and alternative ones, like some of the most beautiful Italian songs. And, who knows, maybe I will teach you also some super tasty Italian recipes! I also teach Italian for the working sector, which is very different from the informal one and requires a specific focus on formal writing and speaking. 1. For Children: with young learners, I start from the basis and my purpose is to show them how entertaining can be learning a language. I do pronunciation, listening, speaking, writing and grammar as well, all step by step. 2. For Adults: I will focus even more on the speaking and writing parts, CLIL words and grammar. Without losing the fun of learning something so great!

Italian, English (ESL), Spanish teaching and tutoring
Knowing a language nowadays has become extremely important. Our need to communicate and relate with the world has increased and so, in order to be able to feel confident with it, we need the right tools and methods. Have you ever been keen on one particular language and willing to learn it? Are you a student struggling to understand your teacher tasks and to get a good grade? Would you like to get better at English as a second language (speaking, writing, reading and listening)? I could be the answer to all these questions.

I also organise running and fitness sessions for people who want to get fitter, trying to forget stress and problems while trying to become more healthy. I myself am a serious triathlete who recently ran a marathon in 3 hours and about to complete an Ironman (3.8km/2.4miles swimming, 180km/112miles cycling, 42.2km/26.2miles running). Last but not least I teach chess to beginners, trying to help you understand one of the most fascinating games in the world..
