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.

Sara
Physics, Maths, Natural Science, Biology, Chemistry, Italian and Spanish
My name is Sara, I'm an italian student with a Bachelor Degree in Physics. Currently, I'm doing a Master in Astrophysics in Berlin. I offer private lessons of Physics and Mathematics for students of different ages. I have accumulated a lot of experience with many different students, having worked also as a Tutor in my University in different support courses. My native language is Italian (so it could be also a chance, if you're interested, to learn in another language), but I speak fluent English and Spanish. I propose adaptive study strategies according to the needs of the student, possibly offering support material such as notes, diagrams and forms. During the lessons, it is possible to face and consolidate together the theoretical part and, gradually, put it into practice with various types of exercises.

Fortunella
Passionate native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
This class is for aiming for 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 on your needs!
