Double qualified and experienced Italian tutor in London and on Skype offers private tuition, using a wide range of methods because, every student is unique as a human being and learner.

Methodology

I am an enthusiastic and successful tutor of Italian. I have studied Education and I am CLTA and DITALS qualified. I am teaching for about 8 years now and I met about 100 students.
My lessons are specifically designed to help each learner achieving their goals. This is because everybody is special and unique in terms of needs and learning styles! As a results I have never delivered the same identical lesson.
My calm and reassuring attitude make my students at ease with me. They know that a mistake is a learning moment and the lesson is not a stressful time. I'm aware about the fact that learning a new language could be intimidating. Consequently, I'm always concerned about my students welfare and I make sure that everybody is relaxed.

Background

I am freelance, teaching one-to-one individual adults and children 13+.
I met hundreds of students with different needs: GCSE and A Level preparation, University, business and general Italian, Italian for holidays, etc.
I have also taught classes:
At International House (London)
At “Modiano” (London)
At “Royal Opera House” (London)
At“Torre di Babele School” (Rome)
Most of my students got A and A* on their exams.

Carla is a fantastic tutor who employs a direct method which not only teaches you the fundamentals of the language, but it also teaches you to speak more like a native speaker. 
Her methods are simple, enjoyable yet highly effective and Carla has a profound knowledge of her subject. Each lesson was tailor made for my needs and we covered a range of complex subjects in an easy format. 
I learnt more in the short space of time spent with Carla than all the hours spent reading grammar books. 
Highly recommended. E.
