Ciao! I am a certified Italian native teacher with many years of experience around the globe.
I started to teach in 2010 and I can say that this profession is my passion.
I speak Turkish, French and English at an advanced level.
I offer general Italian lessons and speaking lessons. I can also help you to pass CELI and CILS exams and I have many years of experience teaching kids.
Let me bring you to the next level and beyond with structured, engaging, tailored and interactive lessons.
I will give you an insight on how Italian language works, you will progress steadily and quickly, having fun and learning many things about Italian culture.
Your motivation will be high and within a short time you will see big improvements.
I have a communicative approach: we study a language to communicate with people and to travel so, my main objective, is to make you able to speak fluently and to sound like a native.
I am a professional and dedicated teacher: I will coach and support you every step of the way to become fully competent and confident to communicate in Italian.
After we've established your level of Italian, we will discuss your needs and expectations, and I’ll show you how my teaching expertise can help you become the best Italian speaker you can be.
I can give you insights into Italian culture and teach you idiomatic expressions that will make you sound natural.
Hope to see you soon :)

My partner started learning Italian with Donnatella and said that I should try a lesson with her. That one lesson was more than enough to convince me to keep her on as a tutor. Donna listens, challenges and encourages, keeping me on track with my exam preparation. She arrives to every lezione well prepared and is a ray of positivity.

Donatella is very experienced in tutoring and very patient, at the same time very encouraging. I am preparing for a Celi test and Donatella structured lessons to meet my needs. Also it is helpful to use google dox to keep the progress and for homework. Thank you!

I was looking for an Italian tutor for my son James (10yo). He started learning Italian casually with an app and watching Netflix a couple of years ago and was ready to start speaking. Donatella was amazing, understanding straight away what we were looking for during the taster session. James just had his first official lesson and spoke in Italian for 30min! Donatella was guiding him throughout, with expert questioning and gentle corrections. Thank you Donatella, you're clearly a gem of a tutor and we're very lucky to have found you!
