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.

Send a message explaining your needs and Francesca will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.

Fortunella
Native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
This class is aiming at confident Italian speakers and practice is the best way to improve language fluency. My students and I love to split each class into two parts: the first half generally focused on grammar (foundations are crucial) and the second always dedicated to speaking activities and conversation. We'll talk about a number of different topics and share content and ideas while having lots of fun. Classes will be in English, hopefully in Italian :) Please contact me for a tailored learning program designed for your needs!

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.)
