Italian language lessons with a highly qualified and dynamic teacher based in Central London

Methodology

I'm a well qualified and passionate Italian language teacher with over 10 years' experience of private Italian tuition in the UK.

- My teaching methods:

I teach mainly to adults of any levels. What is really important to me is to deliver the best lesson adapted to the student's needs. I use a communicative approach with a blend of materials from modern text books and different media (video, audio) to give the student exposure to the language from the first lesson. I'm passionate about what I do and teaching gives me the opportunity to share with the students my love for my language and culture.

- Qualifications:

I hold a BA in Italian language and Culture and a Diploma in Didactics of Italian as a foreign language in which I both obtained the maximum mark (110 with honours). I studied in one of the leading universities in Italy (Siena) which is dedicated to the didactics of Italian as a Foreign Language and to research in the fields of linguistics and language teaching. As a result I have a strong academic background together with lots of training acquired during my 5 year course.

- Charges:

One hour lesson: £28 (at home) or £35 (at student's home/workplace)
90 minute lesson: £38 (at home) or £45 (at student's home/workplace)
Group lessons: price to be arranged based on group size
I apply a 24 hour cancellation policy.

- Location:

I can teach at home in London SE16 but I'm happy to travel to students' homes or offices in Central London.

- Timings

I'm available weekdays from 9am to 8pm. I can teach Saturdays by arrangement.

- Personal message:

Speaking another language is a great experience and it can be very rewarding. It definitely opens ways to meet people from other countries and cultures. Teaching grammar is not enough to prepare students to use the language effectively, this is why I focus my lesson on communication which means that the learner uses the language in order to accomplish function (expressing personal feelings, describing aspects of the world, requesting information, etc). I'm friendly and patient and I do really love what I do and I believe that I will provide you with a first class tuition. Wittgenstein said that "If we spoke a different language, we would perceive a somewhat different world" so I'm telling you that if you want discover that world you have found the right path!

Background

I've been teaching Italian for many years both in the UK and Italy. Since I moved to the UK over 10 years ago I've been working as a freelance teacher both through agencies and privately. I've taught many students at different levels and from different backgrounds. I teach individual and group classes on a private or corporate basis.

- My students:

My current students are learning Italian for different reasons, including because they have Italian family members or partners, for work or simply because of an interest in Italian culture. Please see my testimonials for more details about my students and their experiences.

Perfect! Romina is absolutely marvellous. In a very few lessons Romina improved my conversational Italian hugely, identifying the skills and vocabulary I would actually need for visiting the country. I look forward to trying out what I've learned!

Romina's response

As someone who started Italian on a app 3 months ago, I think he did a good job in his first session!

If you're looking to take basic holiday Italian to the next level and work parts of your brain that haven't been used since school, look no further. Romina is a naturally gifted teacher who not only immerses you in the joy of learning Italian, but also deepens your understanding of Italian culture and society. She is intelligent, efficient and warm. I can't believe that she took me from an absolute beginner to a certified B2-level speaker in 2 years (CILS). My experience was genuinely life-enhancing.

Martina

Romina is an excellent Italian teacher and a lovely person! She came to my office and put a great deal of effort into preparing interesting lessons which often focused on news items or topics of particular interest for my profession. Lessons were a good balance of speaking, listening and reading exercises. Writing tasks for homework were always marked promptly with lots of useful suggestions. Thanks to her I passed the B2 CILS exam. She took great care that I was well prepared for all elements of the exam.

E
Elaine

To all her teaching Romina brings not only a consummate mastery of the Italian language, a profound connection with Italian cultural issues and a wealth of appropriate learning materials for every stage of the journey, but also a humanity, maturity and compassion which transform lessons into learning experiences beyond the purely linguistic.

R
Rebecca

Romina was quick to identify my level of ability and build lessons around my needs and desire to communicate with Italian friends and family. Romina both challenged and supported me, providing plenty of extra material and activities for me to extend my learning at home. She is a very friendly and focussed teacher.

Romina is an absolutely fantastic tutor who puts 110% into her effort and dedication towards her students. She is always prepared, has work ready tailored to your level, and really wants to make the maximum use of the student's time. She is friendly and patient if you are a beginner and a perfect choice for progressing to a higher stage. Thoroughly recommended, you're not going to find a better tutor!

Tayfun Atailer, Investment Accounting Manager

Romina has been a brilliant tutor in helping me to learn Italian for the past 2 years. Her work is truly remarkable and she covers lots of material during lessons. She's grammatically excellent and she teaches in a very effective and comprehensible way. She takes her job seriously and puts a lot of effort for me to succeed. From textbooks to conversation and listening, she uses whatever is out there to improve the experience. She is also very patient and honest. I would thoroughly recommend her.

C
Charlotte

Romina is a great teacher and I really look forward to my lessons. She does careful lesson preparation to ensure we not only cover the planned content but have time to practice what has been learnt. We do listening comprehension, translation and lots of conversation. She is very good at explaining complex concepts in a way that is clear and easy to understand and remember. I am very motivated to learn and this is all down to her. She makes the lessons fun and has lots of energy. I love my lessons with her.

Angela

I have been learning with Romina for 4 years and in that time she has taken me from basic holiday Italian to passing the CILS Upper Intermediate level certificate. She is a very patient and creative teacher and I have always been impressed with how much time she spends preparing lessons for me and finding topics that would interest me. She really makes the lessons fun and engaging. She challenges me to challenge myself and is always supportive and encouraging.

M

Learning Italian with Romina has been an absolute pleasure. Having experienced many language teachers in my lifetime, I can say with absolute confidence that she is truly passionate about her occupation and equally competent so. Romina is kind, intelligent and constantly encourages and challenges you to learn more. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn Italian, whether it be for recreational, personal, or professional purposes.

Nick

I came to Romina as a compete beginner. She was passionate and patient with the language and my learning. She uses a variety of learning techniques to help build a solid base and understanding of the language. It is fun too! After just over a year I passed my A2 certification (CILS) with flying colours - 57/60. I am looking forward to my next challenge with Romina and my trip to Sicily.
