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.

During the university period I gave private lessons to erasmus students in Italy and now I give individual Italian lessons in Amsterdam and online.

Elena
Language teacher (Italian, English and French)
I am Italian but I also speak French and English fluently. I learned French from the age of 4 at the nursery and English from the age of 6. I did my university studies in London (bachelor + master). I have already taught these languages to high school students as well as to adults. My approach is very dynamic, I structure the lessons with theory, grammar, exercises as well as verbal practice. I give my lessons via Zoom or at my office. I am Italian but I also speak French and English fluently. I started learning French at the age of 4 in nursery school and English at school from age 6. I have completed my university's studies in London (bachelor + master). I already taught these languages to students from high school as well as to adults. My approach to the lessons is very dynamic: I explain the theory and the grammar, we then solve exercises and finally we spend some time practicing conversation. I give classes via Zoom or at my office. Sono italiana ma parlo molto bene reed il francese e l 'inglese. Ho appreso il francese dall'età di 4 anni all'asilo e lngese a scuola a partire da 6 anni. Ho completato i miei studi universitari a Londra (bachelor + master). Ho già insegnato queste lingue a studenti del liceo e ad adulti. Il mio approccio alla lezione è dinamico: prima spiego la teoria e la grammatica, poi risolviamo esercizi e per finire pratichiamo la conversazione. Le mie lezioni si svolgono via Zoom o al mio ufficio.

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.

Rosy
English Course, French Foreign Language, Italian
I hope to meet you soon to test your level in the language you want to learn and to be able to establish together a suitable program that can make you progress quickly towards the complete mastery of the foreign language of your choice.

Roberto
Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

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 !!

Silvia
Online private lessons in Italian language, culture and lifestyle. All levels. Master of Arts Leiden University, Ditals I.
If you wish to brush up your Italian, resume a past series of lessons, or simply start from scratch learning Italian, this is the right lesson for you! I like to personalize each class/course according to the needs and goals of my students. My classes are focused on improving the student's communication skills. At beginner and lower intermediate levels, I prefer using a text book/ student book in the first part of the class. I usually use "Nuovissimo Progetto Italiano" and "Arrivederci" by Edilingua, or "Nuovo Espresso" and "Dieci" by Alma Publishing. For the second part of the lesson, I create engaging contents using original videos, press articles, extracts from blogs and social media, literary texts. If the students does not feel comfortable using Italian from scratch, I can switch to English, German or Dutch. The course comprises the correction of home assignments.

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.

Kaoru
Conversation in Italian: Interactive Lessons for international students
I love teaching languages because I love learning them myself. For me, learning a language requires patience, willingness and joy. I also believe that learning something new in Italian every day is better than learning too much in a single day. I also think that you must use every new word you learn, by interacting and speaking as much as you can. For this reason, each of my lessons always includes all 5 skills according to the CEFR: - Spoken Production: e.g. I encourage learners to introduce themselves and speak about their main interests without being interrupted. - Listening: e.g. I integrate songs, interviews, lectures according to the learner's goals. - Reading: e.g. articles, film reviews, parts of books and news. - Writing: e.g. formal and informal letters and e-mails, personal accounts, journals. -Spoken Interaction: I always spend time in conversation with the student, at the beginning and the end of the lesson, in order to improve her/his fluency and confidence. I also encourage (but not force!^^) students to do exercises on their own too, so that they are more prepared for the following lesson. I am patient and comprehensive, and I organize my lessons according to the learners' interests and personal goals. From A2- B1 level onwards, I try to speak only in Italian.
