Italian native speaker available for conversation and help with homework to improve your skills and overall confidence with the language.

Are you studying Italian but want to expand your vocabulary and conversation skills? Talking to a native Italian speaker is the best way to improve your language skills! I'm 24 and was born in Italy (Siena, Tuscany, to be more specific) and move to London three years ago. I'm a performer and dance teacher, but over the years I have also worked as a teaching assistant in primary schools, so I have experience working with children as well as adults.
I graduated high school in Italy with the highest marks 100/100, specialising in classical studies especially Italian language and literature.
I'm willing to help students or Italian learners of every level to improve their skills and level of confidence and even help in preparation for tests or examinations.

Extra information

No need for any specific material (unless you have specific exercise books you want to use). You might want to have an Italian short novel or newspaper article with you so we can work on some reading and translation too.

Taking ballet classes with Viola has been my great pleasure. Her style of teaching is really enjoyable and she is such a kind and caring teacher. Definitely the ideal dance teacher you would be looking for!

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.

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.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a qualified and experienced private math teacher. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career giving remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual tutoring by following a pedagogical training from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private math lessons daily for almost 10 years. Pleasantly surprised by the impact of my lessons on the school career of my students, in 2018 I created Math Coaching, an online tutoring platform. The platform provides students around the world with quality educational content focused on making math learning easier. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This table is specially designed to promote student / teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it.

Phil
Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you
