About the lesson
I have been teaching online and in-person for years and I have specific teaching strategies to engage my students. Lessons are divided into 2 parts: the first part focuses on grammar, which is essential to learn a new language; the second part is focused on vocabulary and conversation activities to speak the language fluently in every situation. Students are given homework to consolidate what they have learnt. I offer a wide range of courses focusing on business, tourism, social sciences, fashion, or general language. Let me know your goals and I will tailor a course specifically to your needs.
I am a qualified teacher who specialized in Italian, Spanish, and English. I hold a Teaching Certificate with a specialization in languages, a BA in Interpreting and Translation, an MA in Modern Languages for International Communication, an MA in Fashion Journalism and Qualified Teacher Status. As a school teacher, I also have an enhanced DBS certificate.
My extensive education allowed me to acquire a thorough knowledge of the Italian, Spanish, and English languages, which I have been keen to pass to my students. I am committed to delivering the highest quality lessons tailored to students` educational needs and aimed at achieving outstanding results. I have been working as a tutor for 10 years, honing my teaching strategies and creating lessons that are engaging, interesting, and highly effective. My students start speaking the language after the first lesson and always look forward to our next class.

I have weekly lessons with Federica - and had never studied Italian before. She’s been a great teacher - always pushing us to be more ambitious, to improve faster, and to spend as much time as possible speaking Italian, even though we’ve only been doing it a couple of months. Would recommend without hesitation!
Federica is a professional, meticulous and enthusiastic tutor. Her advanced Italian lessons are both enjoyable and challenging. Federica achieves a balance between pushing you to focus on important details whilst encouraging natural conversation.
Federica has been teaching me for several months. She is a talented and very patient teacher, as I am a complete beginner to Spanish.
We have covered lots of ground using spoken, written, and audible exercises.
I highly recommend Federica.
Federica has been a great Italian tutor. We have learnt a lot over the last few month. She is very patient and encouraging, helping us feel more confident in speaking another language. Would highly recommend Federica.
Federica is a great tutor! My friend and I have been having lessons with her for about 6 months and have already learnt so much! She is patient, accommodating and she often comes up with ideas of how to make the learning fun. I would highly recommend.
Frederica is a wonderful tutor, she is helping me learn at a manageable pace alongside work & always makes our lessons interesting!
Whenever I have questions about my homework Frederica is always on hand to help me! I highly recommend her as a friendly, reliable & efficient tutor!
Federica has been a reliable force in my effort to learn Spanish in the last 7 months. She has excellent communication skills, a plan tailored to my needs, and the ability to motivate without fail.
I have been studying Italian with Federica for 3 months now, and even though we’ve been limited to learning over video chat, I have thoroughly enjoyed each lesson.
Federica is an highly qualified, passionate teacher with a plethora of experience in teaching pupils of all levels and learning styles. Every session has a clear structure, with each section well explained. I always feel I have come away with something new after every lesson.
Federica always sets out homework and revision for the following class as well as regular scenarios or summaries to complete. I feel this greatly accelerates your learning of the language as it enables you to adapt it to real world problems and situations; which in turn also makes you appreciate the culture.
I highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn or improve their Italian.
I have been learning Italian with Federica for a few months now and as a complete beginner, I have found her to be an excellent teacher. She is patient, knowledgeable and has made my learning experience so much better with her enthusiasm for languages. After a relatively short time, I recently started to read one of my favourite books, in Italian, thanks to her teaching style. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending her to others thinking of learning a new language.
Federica has helped me gain so much more confidence with my Spanish, she has especially helped with my accuracy - things I didn’t even know I didn’t know!
I was very close to missing out on my dream universities’ grade requirements, and with such a limited time, Federica helped me prove to my school that I did deserve a higher grade. Thanks to her, I can apply to Oxford! I am amazingly thankful for her support, she has even promoted my love of literature, tying in my other interests such as Classics and Latin. Thanks again!
Federica’s teaching style is ‘eccellente’! She is friendly, professional and is very patient with me and even after only 3 lessons I feel I have learnt a lot.
I especially enjoy her lesson structure as it covers every aspect of the language and not just at a conversational level
I highly recommend Federica to anyone wishing to learn Italian, either as a beginner or to improve on their existing proficiency; as she is not only a native Italian but also a very knowledgeable and passionate teacher.
I contacted Federica in order to get some assistance in the preparation of my IELTS exam. I saw her three times a week for a duration of 6 months. Considering my poor command of English before starting taking lessons with Federica, I was overly happy with my progresses and outcome of the exam. She is very skilled and professional. Highly recommended
Federica helped me to improve my English level. She was great and very helpful. I recommend her to everyone who needs to learn or improve the language!
