Learn Italian with a dedicated, experienced and qualified teacher

Hi, my name is Francesca and I am a native Italian teacher with more than ten years of experience teaching in schools and privately (both in Italy and in England).

I offer Italian lessons for all levels, from beginners to advanced, also GCSE, AS/A2 and Celta exams preparation.

I've always loved my language and really enjoy passing this love onto someone else by teaching.

My lessons last 2 hours, normally starting with one hour long conversations (with absolute beginners this hour is spent in role playing, games and repetitions), followed by homework correction, grammar studies and listening to pre-recorded Italian conversations.

The lessons are very enjoyable and time goes quickly!

I teach online and in person depending on where you live.

I supply all the materials (except dictionary and notebook)

I hope you'll find the above information useful and I look forward to hearing from you.

A presto!

Francesca

About Me

Reviews I have received over the years on various websites.

FROM BARBARA
Francesca has been very quick in responding and has provided the right support and information. We are now doing tutoring lessons with her and we are very happy.
FROM HEATHER
Francesca is an amazing tutor. We do a combination of listening, writing, reading and checking homework after speaking for an hour or more. She has the ability to explain key grammar skills clearly and effectively.
She’s tuned into and interested in my work life and interests. I feel she cares. This has made me feel comfortable and able to push myself to learn, grow and practice Italian with her. I feel respected, comfortable, safe and able to take the risks to venture out of my comfort zone, make mistakes and learn!
FROM SILVIA
I have been having lessons with Francesca for a few months and she has been able to support me so much in my studies. I am an upper intermediate level. Her lesson's are always engaging and interesting, and challenging also which is important. She is very punctual and easy to contact and responds very quickly. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their Italian at any level.
FROM DONATA
Francesca is very reliable, has a lovely manner with children and young people and has managed to greatly improve my daughter's level of Italian
FROM JULIE
Francesca is a great tutor, very patient and focused.

Education

I have a Bachelor degree in Law achieved at University of Rome in Italy.
I also worked in Rome as a journalist for 5 years.
After moving to London in 2003 I began teaching in Adult Education Colleges as well as privately. I currently work as Italian tutor for Hammersmith and Fulham Adult Learning and Skills Service.

Experience / Qualifications

I am a CLTA (Certificate in Teaching Italian to Adults gained at The International House in Rome) qualified tutor of Italian, with over 15 years` experience teaching Italian to adults of all backgrounds, whether learning individually or as a group. I have therefore developed a good understanding of the problems encountered by students who may be learning a language for the first time, as well as those who may be returning to learning after a long gap, and are therefore not only unused to learning, but may need to somehow fit their studies into the limits imposed by a full time working and family life.
I have also a very good record of achievement for students undertaking GCSE, A Level examinations, MLAT test and University interviews.

Ask a question

Send a message explaining your needs and Francesca will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

Paola
Private Italian lessons from beginner to advanced with an Italian native language
Hi, I'm Paola and I'm a graduate in Italian Literature and I also have a master's degree in Teaching Italian to Foreigners. During the university period I gave private lessons to erasmus students in Italy and now I give individual Italian lessons in Amsterdam and online. I use a book that I integrate with different materials. Conversation is very important, but so is listening and understanding a text. A presto!

Giorgia
Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

I am a professional teacher with 6 years of experience. Italian is my native language. 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! :-D I will closely monitor your entire learning journey, to get the most out of your skills! I love learning and teaching 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!

My classes are available in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch GROUP LESSONS possible! See you soon! A presto

Daniele
Italian lessons and lessons for foreigners at all levels
I am a teacher and tutor of Italian Language for Foreigners with the DITALS certification (Certificate of proficiency in teaching Italian for foreigners) from the University for Foreigners of Siena (Italy). The course and my method of teaching the language are based on a communicative approach: the student will learn the language gradually by using it and communicating in a real language and not abstract. To achieve this goal, many activities will be offered using authentic teaching materials such as newspaper articles, pages from novels, movie scenes, song lyrics and many more.

Mauro
Learn Italian, "la Dolce Lingua!" with music, art, movies!
HI! My name is Mauro, I currently live in Argentina, teaching Italian online and teach in University of San Martín, Argentina. My teaching methodology is integrated: I think that it is important to work on all of linguistic abilities: oral and writing comprehension and production. I also think that lessons must be as much as fun as possible, and I use a lot of authentic material: songs, films, cooking recipes, newspapers, advertising and so on... Also, I think that is important to share with the student the ideation of the classes, taking into account students' interests and objectives.

Diana
Italiaans alle niveaus - kinderen, tieners en volwassenen
Italiaans is mijn moedertaal. Met veel passie wil ik de prachtige Italiaanse taal aanleren volgens je behoeften. Heb je nodig van een ondersteuning voor je studie op school… voor je privé- en beroepsleven? Heeft je kind nodig van hulp bij het maken van het huiswerk? Dat kan allemaal aangeboden worden in een gemoedelijke sfeer bij mij of bij je huis, maar het kan ook online. Ik werk op een natuurlijke manier, en uit de eerste les bent je in staat eenvoudige zinnen te spreken. Als algemene regel geef ik mijn lessen in het Italiaans, zodat je vanaf het begin een effectieve ‘full immersion’ krijgt (ondersteuningstalen zoals Nederlands, Engels of Frans, worden gebruikt als het absoluut noodzakelijk is). Ik leer je hoe de Italiaanse grammatica werkt en hoe je het best een gesprek uitvoert met een native speaker. Ik leer je de taal die tegenwoordig in Italië wordt gesproken door leuke en interactieve lessen.

Candice
Private Italian language lessons for all levels
I offer Italian language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the Italian language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in Italian language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in Italian more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)
