ITALIAN lessons for adults and students up to GCSE and A-level

"I strongly believe that anyone can achieve great results and learn anything when they’re motivated and enthused. As we know education is often focused on passing exams but too often the joy of learning for the sake of just learning is missing. I can certainly help with passing exams, but in such a way that enthuses my students to want to learn more, developing their talent and curiosity. It’s important to me to create a nurturing environment to enable my student to explore their ideas without fear of failure, building confidence and ultimately excelling. I take pride in being able to discover the way a student thinks and the style of learning that best matches them. Above all though: a good sense of humor and fun goes a long way to ensuring the whole learning experience is positive..." Paolo

About Me

Paolo is an Italian songwriter, composer, and stage director, based in London.

He has independently composed, produced, and released solo albums, as well as soundtracks for theatre productions and songs for other artists. He began his music career in 1992. He is also an accomplished singer and guitarist who has performed all over Europe and collaborated with numerous international artists.

Paolo has a unique writing style that has developed over the years whilst traveling around the world, through literary studies and ongoing poetic research.
This led him to win the first prize in poetry at the Pirandello Stable Festival in 2012.

He started his career in theatre and cinema in 1998 and alongside an intensive period of training in drama school, he spent seven years acting and improving his skills in stage directing at the Teatro Regio di Torino, working under the prestigious direction of Franco Zeffirelli, Josè Carlos Plaza, Ugo De Ana, Giuseppe Patroni Griffi, and John Cox.
Since 2002 he has written and directed a considerable number of plays and short films.


Paolo had various teaching jobs throughout his career like teaching Italian Literature, Humanities, Music, and Drama in primary/secondary schools and academies. He has an MA in Humanities and Arts from the University of Turin, a Diploma in Classical Guitar from Trinity College London, and he's in the process of getting an MA in Archaeology from UCL. Paolo is actually teaching Music in a secondary school in London.


He's the founder of SounVid's video and audio productions company.

Paolo recently published the collection of Italian poems 'Viandanti Nelle terre del sole', and the book for beginner guitar players 'FAB Guitarist' both available on Amazon.

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.)

Mimi
Italian lessons for everyone, Italian for adults
Hey! My name is Mimi. I am a native speaker, and I teach Italian and English. I have a bachelor - Italian and art history teacher. I am an experienced teacher who uses all moderners methods. I think it is important to take into account the personal wishes of my students when designing a curriculum. Everyone learns with a specific goal and with the help of a tailor-made program, this goal is best achieved. For example, it is possible to focus on Italian grammar or on speaking skills or on all aspects (reading, listening, speaking and writing skills).

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.
