I teach through applied focused conversations relating a wide variety of topics, from day to day life to professional environment, slang vs. Formal conversations. Homework is a basic requirement and grammar rules are explained at the beginning of each class, yet the focus is given to practice. Intensive preparation is Available for quicker learning outcomes.
MA Middle Eastern Studies, Cultural mediation
BA in languages and Foreign cultures, class of Applied Linguistics.
I’m currently working for a Media publishing house, in London.
I gave classes ever since my BA, currently 6 years of experience, mentoring any age of students, from middle and high school, to college and professionals :)
The first class, it's on me! I will assess your level through a conversational exchange. Think about it more as an conversation, rather than an interview! I enjoy having flexible and multiple approaches to better adapt to my students and clients, though I expect them to be passionate and versatile in learning :)
Based on the assessment, I customise a plan with several level balancing grammar, oral expressions, and practice, alongside taking into consideration the background and necessity of the students. Depending on the level and the time that we plan to have, I provide the students with a breakdown of an "action plan" to learn quickly, and effectively, through practice rather than mere study. If the student wants to learn specific technic lexicon and vocabulary, for example, to improve his/her vocabulary in Finance, Marketing, Law, Burocracy, or Mathematic, Music, Art, Architecture, etc., I provide sector-based related dialogues and classes to enhance such aspects and preferred knowledge.
Methodology may vary depending on the availability of the students, and their preferences. Zoom meetings through share screen, are optimal, though face-to-face classes are enjoyable in equal measure. Further, for accent reduction and advances, I also can teach through phone calls conversations, as it sometimes results easier especially for professionals, to fit phone calls in their daily routines.
Homework: customised homework will be sent to email at the end of each class, alongside the resume of the lesson and the prep-material introducing the next one. Students are not obliged to do the homework, it's completely up to them! For all the rest, drop me an email :)
I started learning Italian a couple of months ago with Francesca, all I can say is I couldn’t hope to find a better teacher! Great person to meet, and a professional yet flexible teacher, that meets your needs and requests! I am now confident in having a conversation in Italian both professionally and informally, and I can’t wait to put it into practice on my next Adventure. I definitely recommend her.
If you are looking to learn Italian from basics or improve your level in communication with a genuine, authentic and effecient approach, Francesca is perfect for you. Worth every penny!
I really appreciated how she modelled the classes based on my needs and interests. I felt that thanks to her my Italian got so much better in a very short time.
Grazie mille! xx
I strongly recommend Francesca for Italian classes. She gives you constructive feedback and is always super friendly. It’s always fun having a class with her!
I've known Francesca for nearly a year now and I'm confident in saying she is a a trustworthy Italian tutor with an extensive experience in linguistics. She is very professional and yet has a very friendly and human approach to teaching. Right from our first lesson she knew how to suit my needs and requirements as a learner.
Hi, for those who want to improve or learn Italian language can not do without the skills and experience of Francesca. in a natural and professional way, she will bring you to italy in a second.
Francesca is a native Italian who speaks a vast variety of languages including English, French, Arabic, Spanish, some Hebrew, etc. (and those are just the ones I know of). Having studied languages during her undergraduate and graduate degrees, fully devoting herself to learning as much as possible, she has great insight as to how to remember and learn vocabulary, grammar, and nuances that come with each language which lends itself very well to understanding effective teaching methods for languages in a way that will stick with a person. Francesca is insightful and has very strong communication skills which make her more than qualified to be an Italian tutor. If there were anyone I’d want to learn a language from, I’d definitely start with her.
