My name is Selene and I teach Italian to adults at all levels. My aim is to deliver lessons that are not boring, useful to what you want to achieve and adaptable to your learning style. I have experience teaching students from all over the world, from beginners to more advanced students. I create my lessons with the help of books, images, authentic material, my personal experiences and a bit of sense of humour.
Italian is a language full of history and culture. I believe it is almost impossible to learn Italian without learning its culture and traditions. Cultural activities, recipes and travel tips are my signature lessons. I am qualified to prepare for CILS exams and B1 citizenship exams. I can guide you to the process of getting the Italian proficiency qualification you need.
I developed my methods during the years and I'm able to create a friendly environment in which the students can learn without any pressure. My students have been with me for a long time :).

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
Ciao! My name is Federica and I am a teacher from Florence, a city of arts, the cradle of Renaissance and the Italian language. I have 9 years of experience in sharing our beautiful language and culture with students from all over the world!
I am a teacher but also a traveler and a language learner. I have lived and traveled in many countries and speak English, Russian, French, Spanish, and a bit of Hindy and Swahili. I have a background in classical studies, a University degree in education and later I specialized in teaching Italian as a foreign language My lessons are professionally structured.
The format of the lessons and the learning content that I will provide is individually tailored to the student’s language level and learning needs. With me, you can learn Italian from the very basics to fluency, practice conversation, and prepare for all certification exams (CELI, CILS, B1 for citizenship). During the class I will share a Google Doc that we will use as an interactive whiteboard, there I will paste screenshots of different activities, extracted from modern textbooks or edited by me. I will also share audio files and videos.
“To learn a language is to have one more window to look at the world “I look forward to being the one who helps you open this window! If you think I could be the right teacher for you, don’t hesitate and book a trial lesson with me. A presto!See Reviews From Students
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
I am Ilaria, and I am a native Italian teacher. I have been teaching Italian for several years now, and I love my job.
I am a full-time Italian teacher, and I am building my entire career around the Italian language. I am also a blogger and a podcaster.
In the past, I have attended German and Spanish courses. But I am still a language student, in fact, I keep taking English classes, so I know how difficult and frustrating can be to learn a foreign language for my students.
My teaching method is focused on the students. During the first lesson, I ask them why they want to learn Italian and the goals they want to achieve. I am a supportive person, and I will constantly be there to guide you during the challenge of learning a foreign language!
With beginners, we will start learning grammar, but I will try to let them speak from the first lesson, helping them to create their first sentences.
Once the level advances, the part of the conversation will become gradually longer, but obviously, we will keep adding grammar information.
With students with a higher level, I will be more flexible and, the work to do will be decided together. Some of them prefer to have an informal lesson, based on conversation. Others prefer to have a more structured class, with readings and exercises.See Reviews From Students
My name is Giusy, I'm a native italian speaker. I've been learning multiple languages for many years now and it is something I am extremely passionate about, which means that I know how difficult it is to learn a language, especially if you are nervous or worried about making mistakes. As your community tutor, I will make sure to keep the conversation fun and easy so you always feel comfortable and relaxed during a lesson. My teaching style is informal and friendly, you will learn new vocabulary and improve your pronounciation while discussing our goals, hobbies and passions. We will focus on creating the perfect balance between the four key aspects of learning a language: speaking, listening, writing and reading, using a range of digital resources to keep the lesson fun and interesting.See Reviews From Students
Hi, my name is Chiara and I’m from Italy, but I lived abroad for about 6 years, in the UK, in Australia, in New Zealand and in Perù.
I am an English and Italian teacher, and I love my job. I love helping others achieve their goals.
I love traveling and meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. That’s why I decided to study languages. I am a polyglot and besides English and Italian, I can also speak Spanish, French, and German. So I know what it’s like to study a foreign language! I can teach you how to improve your speaking, and your listening, because I’ve done it myself in the first place! I also know that sometimes learning a language is not easy, but I know how you can overcome these difficulties.
My lessons vary according to the student’s needs. During our first lesson together we will decide what your goals are and what your level is. My lessons focus on conversation to give you a chance to practise what you have studied independently, and then, if needed, we can revise together some grammar points and learn some vocabulary.
My first goal is always to make the student feel comfortable in speaking another language so that they can feel confident about it and make progress more easily.
I believe the secret to learning a language is enjoying the process, having fun is the key!
I look forward to meeting you,
A presto!See Reviews From Students
My name is Donatella and I’m a native Italian Language Tutor. First of all, I think it is very important to introduce myself to give you the chance to get to know me better: I have 2 graduate degrees: a Master's degree of Languages (in French and Japanese) and a Bachelor of Economics. In addition, I have a Master’s degree in Training and Human Resource Management.
For the last five years, I have been teaching French to Italian speakers and, above all, Italian to foreigners. I have learnt that each student is unique. Each student has a unique way of thinking, unique goals, and unique language learning needs.
As a teacher, I do my best to adapt to your needs. I plan our lessons to suit you and your learning style. During our trial lesson, we will discuss your learning goals and together we’ll make a detailed plan for you to reach them. Using my materials you will be speaking Italian from day 1.
During our classes we will develop all of the skills - reading, writing, listening and most importantly speaking - through many activities: listening to songs, watching film clips, reading texts; pronunciation exercises; the introduction and memorization of vocabulary in an efficient way; and the study of grammar in an interactive way. If you have any questions you are welcome to send a message. I hope to see you in class soon.

Hi! My name is Martina, I’m Italian and I live in Rome.
I’m graduated in Foreign Languages and I have a Master’s degree in Audiovisual Translation.
I can speak English and Spanish at a good level and I also speak a little bit of French.
As you can see from my background, I’m a big fan of languages, so I fully understand how difficult it is to learn a new language. But I’m here to help you!
In Rome I teach Italian as a foreign language to young adults coming from all over Europe, from complete beginners to intermediate and advanced levels. So, my classes depend a lot on the level of the student.
At beginner level I focus mainly on the basic aspects of communication, using readings, songs and videos,with more emphasis on grammar.
At advanced levels the classes are more informal, based on conversations regarding different topics that we can choose together.
Therefore, my aim is to listen to each student's needs and tailor the class according to their interests.
I enjoy travelling, watching TV series, and especially cooking and eating desserts.
If you want to know the best Tiramisù recipe, book a trial lesson with me!
But please: “Acqua in bocca!” Hope to see you soon.See Reviews From Students
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may offer local lessons, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many tutors do not teach Italian in Sydney as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that it will be online unless the tutor specifically states that they offer in-person lessons in Sydney.
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.
