Ciao! I am Chiara, an Italian girl from Venice who is now studying in London ;)
Studying and sharing knowledge is my passion, that is why teaching is my dream job. I hope you are going to be a part of it!
I like to keep my teaching varied and fresh! First of all, I adjust my teaching to the age and the needs of the students, but I always love to interact a lot during lessons (that is also the best way to learn a language and to have fun ;) ) Depending on the student, I use songs, tales, newspaper, ppt presentation or exercises.
Teaching is a passion for me, that is why I have been doing it for 3 years! I have taught different students with different needs. I taught for 6 months to two students of 14 years old who needed some help because they were not going good at school, then I helped a 20 years old guy to pass his boarding exam for three months and my latest student is a girl of 22 years old who has to take a university exam.
Whether you want to get ready for a trip to Italy or you want to get deeply into the language, here I am! ;)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
Take advantage of my promotional price on Languatalk as the number of lessons given here is low: the price for a 10-lesson package is normally $ 500 on other platforms where I have been teaching for a long time.
Hi everyone, my name is Valerio, and I'm a native Italian speaker born and raised in Turin, Italy. If you are looking for someone friendly and fun and at the same time, patient, precise, and methodical I could be a good choice! I can make you improve with any Italian skill and I will provide you with wide and comprehensive reports at the end of each lesson.
I love philosophy, meditation, and everything related to self-development. I also enjoy watching movies, learning languages, and spending time with my friends.
Feel free to book a trial lesson and contact me with any questions you may have. See you soon! :)
I have been teaching online for 4 years, overall about 2200 lessons with 80 students and 27 lessons per student on average.
I'm patient and friendly and this will help you talk: the primary and most important reason to take this type of class is to find an opportunity to practice: the more you speak, the more mistakes I can find and the more new expressions and pronunciation tips can be taught.
The content of the class is flexible: students have different backgrounds and learning styles. So we will discuss and set your learning targets to tailor our lessons to your unique needs.
I like you if you speak about what you are interested in: languages are not an end in themselves. While you talk, I write the corrections, and you can see them live, but you are not interrupted, just like talking to a friend!

Hi! My name is Martina and I am a language enthusiast who loves to teach and learn foreign languages!
My passion for languages started very early when I moved abroad during high school.
After working for a few years in a different industry I decided to follow my passion and it became my full time profession. I am certified Italian tutor (CEDILS certification) as well as a certified English tutor (TEFL certification).
I adapt my teaching approach to each single student, depending on the student’s needs, goals and time to study. I also adapt to the student’s most comfortable learning method, even though I always make sure to use different tools during the classes for a more complete approach (such as listening, reading, speaking, watching videos, completing exercises etc.).
My lessons involve speaking since the very beginning to slowly acquire fluency.
I am super patient and my classes are a safe space for students where they can feel comfortable when they make mistakes: we can work together to improve every time, language learning is a process!
I look forward to meeting you! :)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 goal is to create a friendly environment where you can practice Italian in any possible form. My lessons will be interactive and fun to maintain your motivation strong and to increase your confidence in the language.
You will learn at your own pace, with my help. You choose the difficulty, I will find the words. No worries, no judgment.
My teaching style and lessons vary depending on the requirements and goals of the student. Every person is different and requires different approaches. I am open to every method I can find to improve your Italian in the most efficient way.
We can have conversations about anything you are passionate about. We can analyse an article, describe movies and TV Shows you like, write and expose stories to strengthen your grammar, understand songs, videos and podcasts. My lessons will vary from conversation, listening, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. When you will be ready, we can explore common expressions and colloquial Italian!
If you're just starting and you don't know many Italian words, don't worry! In the beginning, we can speak English. Later, we are going to speak only in Italian!See Reviews From Students
Ciao, I am Giulia and I am from Italy🇮🇹
I have travelled a lot in Europe in the last few years and this has allowed me to meet people from all over the world.
When I moved to the UK, my English was really bad, and I studied hard to improve it and to be able to speak it fluently.
I know how difficult it is to learn a new language and feel comfortable when using it. I want to be able to help you to speak Italian fluently, without fears!☺️
Travelling helped me to improve my English and I had the opportunity to help my new friends to learn Italian through simple conversations, learning a new word every day, doing exercises and other activities.
I can teach you my culture, my cuisine or anything else you want to know about Italy!🍕🍝🍷
No matter what level,
No matter which goals you want to achieve, I will help you learn or improve your Italian through customized lessons, projects and exercises. We will find the best study method for you!
Feel free to book a trial lesson, it could be the start of your journey in learning a new language. Let’s customize together your lessons according to your needs!
I look forward to hearing from you!See Reviews From Students
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!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.

I create customized lessons based on your needs and interests. I will provide you with all the material you need and I will focus on the reading and listening comprehension with the beginners (so they can start to become acquainted with the Italian language) and on conversation and fluency with the intermediate/advanced ones. Grammatical elements will be introduced as you work on your reading, listening and speaking: in this way you will learn about the language structures more naturally. During the first lesson I will give you a placement test (in order to find out your language level) and we will set the goals of the course together.
I would describe myself as a patient and helpful tutor. I have many years of experience in giving one-to-one lessons to students of any age, I love my job and having the chance to know other cultures!See Reviews From Students
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
