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?"

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 !!

Valeria
Fun Learning private classes! Italian, English or Spanish: contact me!
My classes are aimed at all those who, for reasons of study or work, need to learn or improve a language. The classes are personalized, that is, they adjust to the strengths, needs, abilities and interests of each student. The material on which the classes focus is planned according to the objectives to be achieved, which vary depending on the student. I usually propose activities that cover all skills unless the student does not have a specific need, for example, just practicing conversation. It should be specified that my classes also cover, in a transversal way, the cultural aspect of each country. For example: festivals and customs, gastronomy, sayings, music and much more.

Eleonora
Italian classes for all levels, online or in person!
My lessons are a mix of conversational Italian and grammar explanations, with the aid of written and online resources to practice vocabulary and grammar. I typically start from the Italian words and expressions you might already know (everyone knows more Italian than they think!) and take it from there, with plenty of simulated scenarios where you get to speak like a native among natives (and I get to ridicule myself imitating all sorts of Italian people!). When explaining a new topic, I like to encourage students to use their insight, nudging them when necessary. I have observed how even absolute beginners can easily guess the meaning of a new word or the way a certain word will behave, once certain patterns between and within Italian and English (and possibly other languages) are highlighted. When a student reaches the correct conclusion with just a little help, that is highly rewarding for both the student and the teacher! For more advanced students, the focus is often on vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar nuances. I like to choose a topic together and subsequently bring a written text (like a newspaper article), from which to extract more specialised vocabulary, and which will serve as a basis for discussions and debates.
