Hi! thanks for visiting my page! I am a professional English and Italian language teacher with over 6 years' experience teaching students from all around the world. I am very creative and curious, always excited about meeting new students and engage in interesting conversations. I always try to design a lesson around the learner's needs and focus on the areas to improve. I am very passionate about languages but I also love writing fiction, painting and playing the guitar. I am interested in various subjects from art to politics, from cinema to sport and culture.
I believe teaching should be fun, stimulating and inspiring. I plan my lessons in order to offer a variety of creative and exciting activities, a perfect balance of conversation, writing and listening. I also believe that the student should be made comfortable in order to express themselves and gain confidence with their spoken fluency.
My lessons are focused on vocabulary and spoken fluency but we'll practise the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. I apply to the lessons a variety of methods and activities such as role plays, projects, games. At the end of the lesson I always provide feedback and clarification on emerging vocabulary or new expressions.

Hi! I'm Alessandra, I'm a native Italian teacher and I have 7 years of experience teaching to people of all ages. I'm currently living in Spain and I'm in love with learning new languages and teaching mine. I try to transmit my passion to make the learning process easier and more fun.
My method is based on conversation, which means we will start to talk together since the beginning, integrating the classes with grammar. I speak English and Spanish fluently, so don't hesitate to ask any questions you have and complete the sentences you make in Italian.
The lessons will be personalized and we will decide everything together: we will talk about the topics you are interested in, we will decide how to reach your goals, you will have the chance to tell me any topic you would like to learn first, whether you would like homework or not and I will send you all the personalized material we will see together. Also, if your goal is focused on learning or improving your writing or reading, I have plenty of material to work on together.
If you have a friend to learn Italian with, or your partner, or even your hole family or group of friends, don't hesitate to contact me!
With me you will learn how to really speak and/or write in Italian and not just translate from your native language! See you soon!See Reviews From Students
My name is Elena, I'm a native and CLTA qualified Italian teacher with MD in Italian Linguistics and 10 years of teaching experience in Copenhagen, London and Barcelona. Studying and teaching languages has always been a great passion for me, and I do my best to bring this enthusiasm into my work! Whatever your reasons to study Italian, I’ll prepare the best possible bespoke material for you! Besides, you’ll get to speak right away, from Lesson 1!
There's more: how would you ask a platypus if they feel more like a ducky ferret or a furry duck? In Italian. I'm ready to bet a Spritz no teacher has ever asked you that! Or anybody else ever, for all that matters. But they should! Let me explain: everybody knows how to order in a restaurant or ask for directions but it’s when you step out of the safe path that your brain really starts to learn faster.
For one thing, you won't feel the pressure to look smart in front of your teacher. C'mon, they just asked you to speak Italian with a platypus, are you really worried about bad impressions? For another, you’ll have to work with your own resources to deal with a new situation. Which comes very handy when you speak with natives. (Natives always have this bad habit of saying a lot more things than what's in your handbook, and they never seem to ask you the questions you know how to answer...) So, why don't you give it a try? ;)See Reviews From Students
My name is Ilaria and I studied International Communication at "University for Foreigners of Perugia", but don't worry (in Italian we would say "tranquillo"), I'm 100% italian!
My first experience in teaching Italian as a second language was in 2009 in the south of France.
Once back in Italy I began teaching Italian to foreign students at school...it was 2010.
I've been doing it since then and my students come from all over the world. Today I know for sure that is not enough to be a "native" to teach someone a language.
Grammar is often considered boring but we can't avoid learning it. Only when you know the role and function of every single word in a sentence you'll have a solid understanding that will improve your confidence in speaking a foreign language.
It's like to lay the foundations for building a house!
So, what can I do for you?
I can make my experience and knowledge available to you and make your learning process easier and faster without forgetting that it should be also pleasant and enjoyable.
If you're not a beginner we can better explore the language and see together all its nuances.
We can concentrate on lexicon, common expressions, pronunciation and much more.
I'll guide you but first of all your needs will guide me to trace the path in reaching our common objective!
Do not hesitate if you have any questions. I'll be happy to answer you.
Thank you for your time!
I hope to see you soon at the trial lesson!See Reviews From Students
My name is Marzia and I am a native Italian language teacher! Are you interested in learning Italian to travel to Italy, to learn more about the Italian culture, or to connect with your Italian roots? Whatever your reason, I’d be happy to help you!
I have been teaching online for more than five years and I am passionate about sharing my love for my language with my students. I teach students of all ages and levels.
Lessons are based on the needs of my students. Some students prefer the traditional grammar approach, while others want to focus on conversation from the very first lesson. Regardless, my approach is communicative to enable my students to comfortably and confidently speak Italian since I believe that the purpose of a language is communication!
I use authentic materials including newspapers, magazines and listening exercises. This helps my students in their language journey since our lessons are more interesting.
If you would like to become more comfortable speaking Italian, I can help you! I know from personal experience that language learning takes perseverance and motivation and am ready to help you stay motivated! Learning while having fun is the key to success!
I would love to meet you and talk about your Italian language goals during a trial lesson!
A presto!See Reviews From Students
Ciao! My name is Silvana and I have been teaching Italian at all levels for more than 10 years.
Since I was a child, I have had a great passion for foreign languages and the different cultures of the world. This passion has helped me in my many travels and cultural interactions with people from all over the world.
I worked for many years in the tourism industry and I have many hobbies and interests. I like reading, art, music, sports, cinema, trekking, holistic therapies and much more!
I love my language and I love to teach it! I teach Italian to adults and children, from beginner to proficiency level, in a simple and engaging way. Every lesson is personalized, using different material (books, articles, videos, audios, games, etc.). My motto is: "learning Italian is fun!"
I have a degree in Foreign Languages and Literature (specialising in American studies) at the University Institute "L'Orientale" in Naples and I hold a post-graduate Masters degree in "Didactic methodologies for teaching Italian to foreigners - Teaching Italian as a foreign language/second language".
My lessons are engaging and never boring. I use different teaching materials for different levels and, in class,I cover all the different learning skills of a language (speaking, listening, writing and reading).
I like to focus on practical conversations and on the real use of the real italian in everyday context. Grammar is always explained in context. I find excercises and quiz games a very useful and practical way to memorize rules and vocabulary. In my lessons I also cover cultural aspects and curiosities about Italy (food, art, cinema, traditions, etc.).
I can also teach you some Neapolitan dialect as I come from the region Campania.
If you wish to learn my wonderful language, get to know the italian culture, the traditions, the food and the italian lifestyle in a fun and friendly way, get in touch for a private lesson! I am looking forward to meeting you!

Pleased to meet you! I am Grazia and I have been teaching Italian to foreigners for more than ten years! I have a great passion for this job and I am always very happy to meet new students and get in touch with their world! My method is based first of all on listening and understanding the needs and attitudes of each student, and in this way I try to offer lessons that are... 'tailor-made'! I believe that grammar is important, but I also always give a lot of space to conversation, communication and fun. The tools I use for my lessons vary greatly: from grammar review sheets to poems, songs, videos... anything that I find stimulating can become a very good working tool! Since obtaining the DITALS certificate to teach Italian to foreigners, I have taught both in Italy and abroad, to students of all ages and in both individual and group lessons. One aspect of this work that I find very important (and really valuable!) is building a relationship with the students.
After all, teaching allows me to bring together my two greatest passions: the Italian language and... people, from all over the world.
See you soon then... I look forward to meeting you!
Please note!!! I look forward to seeing you on Zoom! I have a paid subscription, so no time limit! :)))See Reviews From Students
Ciao! My name is Mauro, I am native Italian from Calabria! I studied International Relations at Bologna University, then I moved to Padua, for a PhD in History of Political Thought. I currently live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love running, Mozart, tango (I'm trying to improve my dancing abilities...), cook, and culture.
I am a very passionate teacher, I love to share my language and my knowledge about Italy, and its culture, films, music, literature, arts, food!!! I firmly believe that learning is based on trust between teacher and student, and the first objective of my classes is to individuate student's objectives and preferences.
My teaching methodology is integrated: I think that it is important to work on all of linguistic abilities: oral and writing comprehension and production. I also think that lessons must be as much as fun as possible, and I use a lot of authentic material: songs, films, cooking recipes, newspapers, advertising and so on...See Reviews From Students
Ciao! Sono Arianna!
I am a qualified Italian language teacher. I am originally from Sicily, in Italy, but I have been living for many years in Germany where I teach Italian at university and online.
What classes are interactive, dynamic, but above all tailored to you, according to your level, interests and goals.
My goal is to get you to talk. That is why in my courses there is always a lot of conversation, which is needed to immediately put what you have learnt into practice, but there is also a structure, so there is material that I tailor for you: i.e. pdfs, parts of books, songs, videos etc. or, if you prefer, we can use a book and together choose the one that suits you best!
And also: Is there perhaps a part of the Italian language that interests you most? Great! We can study, for example, an Italian that will be very useful for your holidays in Italy, or the Italian that you need to work in Italy or with Italians.
I not only specialize in teaching the language but because I hold a Masters Degree in Cultural Heritage and Archeology, I have comprehensive knowledge of my country’s deep history, culture, and art to share with you!
I look forward to meeting you, to talking with you to understand how I can help you and how we can achieve your goals! So I welcome you for a trial lesson where we can get to know each other and talk about your study path.

Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide lessons locally, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching Italian in Sydney because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a tutor on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better tutors at a lower cost.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Sydney, there are many options for learning Italian. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group lessons with Italian tutors in Sydney if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 lessons with a private tutor. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good tutor. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private tutors a more affordable option. Check the tutor profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the tutor, but will usually be cheaper than learning with an Italian tutor in Sydney, face-to-face.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Italian online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private Italian lessons in Sydney is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online tutors do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Italian tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Italian as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
On LanguaTalk, you can find exceptional tutors for 1-on-1 Italian lessons tailored to your goals and learning preferences. Here’s how to try it for yourself:
1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.
2 - Book a trial. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free; others charge a discounted price.
3 - Take personalised lessons with your new tutor via video call. Or try someone else.
No card is required to book a free trial session. Please only book if you're considering taking lessons. Pricing varies by tutor and you can use the filter to find someone who fits your budget. You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
