My teaching methodology is interactive and surely not passive, but favouring practical excercise and giving a practical sense of each aspect of languages. However, it can adapt to one's needs and preferences, still relying on the practise..
I use a step-by-step method based on the following topics: grammar, reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing and speaking skills. It depends also on the level of the student: the beginners are going to learnt more grammar skills in order to gradually approacching the other activities.
We can decide together how to organize classes according to your requests! But generally my classes are very relaxed, lot of work but no stress!
My teaching method is based on listening to more and more audios, videos, music in Italian. I structure my lessons by videos power points where you can learn about the language and also about the origin of the language. I use also interactive materials for spellings and pronunciations. In addiction, I use apps that can help.
I set my teaching depending on the person who is before me. This is why before commencing with any teaching itself, I get the students to take a couple of questionnaires (with ethical protocols and data-protection documentation being provided) which will help me get a better idea as to their most effective learning way.
Hi I prefer teaching one to one rather then in a class because like this I can understand better your needs and you can ask me as many questions as you want until you understand the topic :) I like you to have a good time learning this beautiful language
I base my classes on simple basic words and then I move onto the main things on italian such as past tense,present tense and future tense,trust me,it will not take a long time to learn Italian if your mind is in it.
Being an Italian mother-tongue speaker, I do not have a age limit. Whoever would like to learn Italian or just get to know the basics of the Italian language will enjoy my lessons. A typical class would be focused on grammar, written communication, words pronunciation and conversation (everything depends on the student’s level).
Hi, my name is Paul Grace and I have successfully prepared students from GCSE to adults who want to speak French and Spanish for holiday purposes. I have had a great success rate which is why clients continue to use my services.
My teaching methods vary from student to student. Someone may prefer a written approach, others oral or schematic.
- Understanding the level of the student - Understanding the needs - Focus on vocaboulary on the basis of concrete examples - Speaking sections - Grammar review
My teaching methodology is based on firstly giving an overlook of the topic the student has to bring to school or to University. Once I have noticed the main problem of my pupils, I focus on them within the topic they are required to learn. My class are not longer than 2 hours and I make sure there is at least a 10 minutes break between them.
My teaching method is based on the flipping classroom method in order to enable the students to use their natural curiosity to learn. Learning a language is not only for educational purposes but it is also a great asset for each of us, because it gives you the opportunity to gain a profound understanding of our own culture and to improve our skills.

I tailor all my class on my students needs and requests, I have experience in teaching to both young learners and adults and to all different levels.
- The writer is able to speak various languages but for the sake of keeping this text short Italian is the language with the most repertoire - First your level should be assess, then a tailored program ( just speak/writing or both ) will be selected for you. - Big fan of practice practice and practice together. The more we know each other the easier you will apprehend.
I am a really professional and friendly tutor, every lessons will be quiet and without stress, I improve my students especially with the reading, the reading is really important both for the pronunciation and practice.
lessons consist of building dialogues and a lot of speaking, videos and reading for understanding italian and being confident with it. I will look for material suitable for your level of italian in order to make you improve.
Before accepting a work I need to know what are the goals in terms of: 1) objective (e.g., I want to be able to solve second-degree equations) 2) time available (e.g., 1 month) 3) current gap (e.g., not able to solve first degree equations). Based on the above I design a program with topics to cover, exercises and activities (e.g.
I am reliable and excellent in motivating students. I am friendly and supportive but also encourage my students to become good independent learners. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach Maths and French but can also teach other subjects. - Tell me about your qualifications.
I began learning Greek young enough to give me "near-native competence". I am half Greek Cypriot and have great passion for languages - especially for teaching beginners: a good start is best - favouring different, tailored approaches to teaching.
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.
I am an italian native tutor graduated in Linguistic Mediation and Intercultural Communication. First of all, i would like to know better my students and in particular the reason they want to learn the italian language, in order to make a plan for each student, meeting their goals and personal requests.
Want a private teacher who lived in Italy for almost 5 years and has the experience and the passion to teach you one of the most beautiful languages?? We can have sessions on grammar, specific vocabulary needs, specialised topics and pronunciation... In the end of every lesson we will have a quick revision.
To teach is to share. The way I teach depends on the student I have in front of me. The most important thing is to find the right way to set a lesson in order to make times and needs of the student fit.
I believe that my teaching method is quite simple. I base my lesson on my knowledge and personal experiences. I hope I’ll be able to transfer my knowledge to others.
My classes will be focused in listening,speaking and writing, I will make a lot of notes for the students so that they can use it at home and practise,I will explain in an easy way the italian grammar, and we'll focus in italian conversation.
My teaching methodology varies depending on the student’s needs. A student preparing to take an Italian test needs a different kind of tutoring compared to someone approaching to the study of the Italian language as hobby or personal challenge, so I adapt my teaching to the different students.
My teaching is based on the student requirement, I have always prepared my lessons in advance using a mix of methods for every lesson. These methods included conversation , introduction of a new word as well as practice in reading , speaking and listening.
To be sure of the quality concerning our italian tutors and their lessons, we collect the reviews of former students in Manchester.
These reviews are authentic and guaranteed by Superprof.

According to a 2011 Census, there were 131,195 Italians residing in England, not to mention those coming for short stays and travelling through the country. There are even more UK residents who travel to the UK and stay for extended periods. Wouldn't it be great to learn how to speak Italian before you go?

A great option for those who have variable schedules and can't commit to a fixed schedule. Prices are very reasonable at:
£ 6.00 per persona per serata / per person per evening

The MIA or Manchester Italian Association is one of the oldest Italian associations in the UK, tracing its roots back to 1888! You can count them to organize events throughout the year to promote the welfare of the Italian community, it's history, culture and heritage, and bring together young people in the community.
One of the most high profile event they host is the Italian Procession which takes place every July. This involves the carrying of different religious emblems ( the Madonna, the Calvary, St. Anthony and beautiful banners) throughout the city, from Manchester city centre, passing by the Town Hall, and to the Catholic cathedral of St. John in Salford.
The procession is accompanied by the Lord Mayors of Manchester and Salford, members from the Italian consulate, women dressing in the colourful regional clothing of Italy, children in their first communion outfits, and culminates in a service led by the Bishop of Salford. All of this is followed by a festive gathering with accordion music, food and drinks. If you are interested in the Italian language and culture, it's definitely worthwhile to check it out!
For those who are not interested in traditional Italian language lessons with an Italian teacher, but also don't have the means to pay for a trip to Italy, another option is to learn Italian by going for a drink!
The Man Uni Italian Society, offers conversation exchanges to practice Italian and English. They get together over coffee, pizza and beer for a more entertaining way to practice your language skills.
