Experienced linguist offering Italian and French lessons up to university level in the Maidenhead area.

Methodology

The staple of my teaching is to create bespoke lessons to make you achieve your goal effectively and quickly. I have proven experience in managing students’ different abilities and in breaking down complex concepts into easier chunks. Indeed, I’m convinced that, if properly approached and taught, every student is able to unlock their true potential.

As an example of my approach, after having a big-picture view of what you're aiming at, I develop an agreed upon learning plan with periodic deadlines to meet. The plan is flexible and we can always adjust it on the go; in this respect, I like to always keep the communication going. Finally, I rely on the best teaching materials for each case (videos, films, glossaries, comics, newspapers, etc.).

Experience

Hi, everyone! I’m a linguist, native Italian speaker, with a professional background in teaching, editing and translation. I have a degree in foreign languages (English and French) and linguistics with honours, and I improved my linguistic skills at Trinity College Dublin.

I’ve been giving private lessons for more than a decade now, so I know a lot about it. Through the years, I’ve helped many different students in passing their exams with very good results and no stress. Whether you’re a foodie willing to know all the ins and outs of Italian/French cuisine or a university student struggling with Italian/French grammar, my determined attitude will be of help to reach your desired goal. Hope to meet you soon!
