My teaching method is deeply personal - there is no one-size fits all. The most important thing is that we create a comfortable environment where you are able to try things out, make mistakes, laugh at them, and try again. You'll immerse yourself in the language, experiment and play with it whilst thinking deeply about how it works and I'll support you all the way. We'll also use the latest language learning apps so that you can keep going between lessons.
I am a language specialist with extensive experience teaching Italian.
With a First Class languages degree, I went on to study education at the University of Oxford. I have taught thousands of students ranging from children just beginning their language learning journey to senior executives preparing for their next trip abroad.
I have lived extensively in Italy - it's my second home and I love sharing the language and culture with others. I have run language departments in some of the leading schools in the UK (St. Paul's and Charterhouse), winning awards along the way for the results we achieved.
I write Italian IGCSE language papers for Cambridge International so I have an in depth knowledge of examination processes for anyone looking to gain their next language qualification, whatever the level.
For students who are looking to learn Italian for business, I also bring deep insights gained from my corporate experience. I have been a company director and have cofounded two successful businesses.
Most of all, I am passionate about learning, and care deeply about the students I teach.
Stephen is a very experienced teacher who gets the best out of his pupils by imaginative exercises, enthusiasm and attention to their specific needs.
He was also a fantastic colleague from whom I learnt a lot not just about teaching but about how to motivate the students.
On top of that, he is a really kind, interesting and thoughtful person.
