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.

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!
A presto!See Reviews From Students
Do you love Italy, good food, art, culture and the Italian language?
Are you planning a trip to Italy and have little time to learn the basics? Or maybe you just want to learn a wonderful new language?
If you want to improve your Italian, feel more confident speaking or start from zero and be able to start speaking in a short time, you are on the right profile!
I know the difficulties of learning and practicing a foreign language and I will use all my experience and the ability to offer you lessons perfectly adapted to your level and your goals.
For our lessons, we will make an individual program that will allow you to progress quickly, I will provide you with the best study materials (books, pdf, audio, video, reading, grammar ...), I will give you homework and activities (if you have time) and we will use many tools to enhance the learning experience.
Together we can face each lesson in a dynamic and fun way, learning something new from the Italian language but also from the culture, improving your vocabulary, grammar and above all your ability to communicate ...
I can also help you prepare for a CILS, CELI or citizenship exam, with the right materials and methods to improve your weaknesses and get ready for test day.
I'm waiting for you for our first conversation, to start a beautiful learning journey together!See Reviews From Students
I'm Sara and I'm an Italian teacher with more than 8 years experience teaching this wonderful language!
I began teaching when I was studying my Bachelor's degree (che bei tempi!) ... I started almost as a joke but I realized soon that I actually liked this profession and, after so many years, I still feel the same!
Throughout the years I had the opportunity to work with a variety of students and each of them taught me a lot: every teaching experience is unique and this is why I love it.
That being said, maybe you would like to know something more about how I work.
I usually offer a free trial lesson, where I like to get to know my students better and understand their needs, goals and interests.
This helps me not only to build a tailor made learning path, which is shared and discussed with the student, but also to select the material and the topics that best suit each person.
If I had to choose my strongest point, I would definitely say that it is the kind of relationship I establish with my students: open and informal to make learning easier and to fully enjoy the experience.

Ciao a tutti! Mi chiamo Francesco.
I am an Italian teacher, a learning specialist, and a screenwriter. I was born and raised in the majesty of Rome, and I love teaching Italian and sharing my culture.
Forget the old boring lessons with tons of grammar and no fun; I use e-learning tools and many activities to keep my students engaged. Once I have assessed your level and understood your goals, I will design the right course for you.
I will help you become fluent in Italian and sound like a local. My classes are a perfect blend of grammar, conversation, reading and comprehension, and, last but not least, writing. In addition, I will provide you with everything you need so you don't have to spend extra money on books.
I prepare students to obtain the language certifications Celi, Cils, and Plida.
In addition to my language courses, I also deliver writing classes. I can help you improve your writing skills, and edit your creative works, such as essays, scripts, and novels.
I love traveling, arts, sports, meditation, yoga, and fancy cocktails! Yes, you heard right: fancy cocktails! What about you? What do you like? Let's chat about your interests, and of course, let's talk about Il Bel Paese!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
Hi, I am Eleonora and I am from Italy (near Venice).
With me, you can improve your conversational Italian. I have more than 6 years of experience tutoring students with different levels of Italian. Some of them were beginners when they started and they managed to reach a good level of Italian after a few months. I also helped more experienced students with their university exams or thesis. So, even if my classes here focus more on spoken Italian when there is a need, we can improve your written and academic Italian.
My classes are personalized according to your needs, level of language, individual interests, and goals. During the classes, you will improve and learn new vocabulary and grammar. The classes are always different and we will use material such as songs, online videos, news, and literature text to help facilitate the conversation and your learning. It would be nice to have a cultural exchange so you can get to learn more about Italian Culture, its History, and its traditions. My students are of different nationalities and backgrounds giving me the chance to keep on learning myself. Personally, I speak fluently French and a bit of German, while I am currently learning Swedish.
I look forward to meeting you!

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
Hello everyone and welcome to my profile.
My name is Antonello and I am a native Italian speaker excited to immerse myself in this new platform.
I have a degree in foreign languages from the University of Bari, a charming city in southern Italy. Languages are a real passion for me - especially Spanish - and I would like to transmit this passion to you with regard to the Italian language and foreign languages as well.
I am a guy who loves meeting new people and new cultures. In fact, in the past, I have worked in the front office, such as in reception - the job I like most.
I love dialectics, grammar and dialogue and I believe that communication should not be a mere exchange of information, but a constant flow of thoughts, ideas and facts between people who are willing to say, but above all to listen.
I like to set up interactive lessons so that the student is an active part of the lesson till he/she becomes the focus of the lesson itself.
I am an energetic person with a constant desire to get involved. That is why I ensure to do my best to discover your personal story and skills.
You can love or hate languages and I love them. What about you? Let's find out together!See Reviews From Students
My name is Margherita, I am from Milan, I am living in Tenerife now and I have been an Italian teacher for 7 years.
My motto is: if you are a polyglot, you can do anything!
I personally speak fluently both Spanish and English as I have worked and lived in Ireland, Australia and Bolivia, before moving to the Canarian Islands.
What do I offer to my students?
- conversation classes on any subject at any level (from 0 to C1)
- professionalism and fun (how can you learn if you are bored?)
- material adapted to your needs
- links on which keep practicing online
- the opportunity to learn Italian for pleasure, tourism or work
- fluency in Italian and in pronunciation
- comparison with English to understand the differences between the 2 languages
- a humanistic-affective approach which is student-centred
- if you want, lessons with other people
- and why not? if you want, even a friend
I graduated in Linguistic and Cultural Mediation in Milan in 2013 and afterwards I achieved the Master Itals aimed at teaching the Italian language and culture to foreigners.
I have taught Italian for four years in La Paz, Bolivia by the SOCIETà DANTE ALIGHIERI, giving classes to adults and university students, while I have taught to kids and adolescents by the Colegio Italo-Boliviano of the same city.
I returned to Italy in 2019 and I was given the opportunity to teach Italian through the Berlitz school by the Leonardo Elicotteri Company, addressing to English managers and engineers.
As regards my teaching method, the student is the centre of the learning process.
Therefore I customize my lessons considering your interests and the topics you want to talk about using different materials like videos, songs, online activities, along with written texts.
This way lessons are based especially on CONVERSATION as I think that each language's goal is to communicate.
So let's start with a talk on the trial lesson to know each other and see which goals you want to reach and by when, then together we choose the path to follow, considering your needs.See Reviews From Students
Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, 55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. 30-minute lessons may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the tutor is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any lessons you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in Italian, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 Italian lessons with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:
1 - Find a tutor that meets your needs by reviewing their videos, reviews, pricing, and availability.
2 - Book a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a free 30-minute trial, while others offer a discounted trial price.
3 - Have personalized lessons with your chosen tutor via video call. Or try a different tutor if desired.
You don't need to provide credit card information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you're seriously considering taking lessons. Tutor prices vary, and you can use the filter to find one that fits your budget. You can pay for individual lessons or purchase a package for a discount (view a tutor's pricing options on their profile).
We're confident you'll enjoy learning on LanguaTalk. Our platform is trusted by students worldwide because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on tutor profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications, unlike other platforms.

Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the lessons, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.
All lessons take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
One of the benefits of online lessons is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Italian lessons in Sydney is between $25-$35. Since online tutors don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.
Some students might be unsure about learning Italian online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your selected tutor, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person lessons in Sydney, but most only offer online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Sydney because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.
If you prefer in-person lessons over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a tutor on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality tutors at a lower cost.
