« 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. »

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.

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.

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.

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.
