I am a part time Italian teacher currently based in Manchester.
I have a Master Degree in Literature and a Phd in History.
For about 2 years I've been teaching Italian in a private school (class of about 10 people, all adult).
I use to give lessons to both, beginners and advanced.
The approach I use is different by the people I am teaching to:
1) Beginners: I always start with the spelling of the alphabet and then straight away with small sentences so that the students can use the words they know.
2) Intermediate: introduce new scenarios where to use new words and new grammar structures
3) Advanced: focused on speaking about different topics (it can be literature, or sport or just by reading newspapaer)
Something I use often is the music: listening, writing, alphabet and grammar can all be improved by a good Italian song :)
I've given private lessons of Latin and History at Uni
I started giving private lessons of Italian when I was living in Berlin (2004-2005)
Now, since 2 years I'm teaching in a private school in Manchester (just few hours per week).
In this school, I've always started from the beginner 1: some of them arrived to have an intermediate level, some others just moved to Italy as they felt they learnt enough to start the real Italian experience :)
I also give lessons to students for theirexams in Italian literature and history
I would highly recommend Gianni for Italian lessons. He really helped me in my understanding of the Italian grammar. He is very patient and has an excellent way of explaining things. I always came away from his lessons feeling more confident in my ability to speak Italian. I would definitely recommend Gianni
Gianni is very professional. He was always punctual and never missed a session. He is an excellent teacher and very patient.. I felt comfortable with him.
