Professional and qualified Italian teacher with 2 years' experience offering Italian online lessons. I am also a CELTA qualified English teacher.

Methodology

I believe teaching should be fun, stimulating and inspiring. I plan my lessons in order to offer a variety of creative and exciting activities, a perfect balance of conversation, writing and listening. I also believe that the student should be made comfortable in order to express themselves and gain confidence with their spoken fluency. I always try to pay attention to individual learner needs and adapt each lesson according to them. In this way, I can always provide fun, engaging and productive lessons that students can fully benefit from.

The lessons with Luca were very varied and it never got boring. English was always a fear subject for me, Luca managed to make me speak even if it was completely wrong and felt fun to learn.

I have worked alongside Luca as a teacher and can thoroughly recommend him. I saw him to be a hard-working, knowledge and caring person who has the skills, patience ad know-how to help you achieve your goals!

Luca is a born teacher. He is a young person with very high personal culture and at the same time very friendly and direct. Has a wide range of knowledge transfer methods. The period of two weeks of studying at the English language school passed like one day and my English improved significantly both in speaking and writing. I definitely recommend his lessons.

I think Luca is an exceptional teacher because he really cares about his students and he teaches with humour and enthusiasm. I worked with Luca for two years and students consistently said his lessons were fun and memorable and they learned a lot in his classes because he created a warm and positive energy. He explains difficult concepts clearly and in a fun way so that students understand immediately. I think he would make an excellent tutor and students would benefit greatly from his classes

Luca is a diligent, creative and well-organised teacher. He is committed to providing quality lessons to his learners. In addition to that, he has an exceptional sense of humour, therefore he is able to create an atmosphere in which learners feel comfortable and perform at their best. Fantastic tutor!

Interview with Luca

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Luca — I am a native italian teacher, I grew up in the North, in a small village between Milan and Como.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Luca — I believe Italian fiction reached its best in the '60 with Cesare Pavese's poetry and Fenoglio's prose about the second world war and the resistance. Milton, from "A private matter", embodies some of the qualities and flaws of the Italians and represents the roots, the culture and the way of thinking that formed modern Italy.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behavior in the language that you particularly like?
Luca — I really like some of our idioms such as "I know my chickens" which means "I really know my friends to the point they are quite predictable", with have many idioms involving animals for some reason, which I find quite amusing. Another good one is: "if my dad was a bird, I'd be singing on a tree..." meaning that thinking by "ifs" you don't get much done.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Luca — I believe Italian is a beautiful language, it's musical and melodic, it's rich and poetic. And coming from latin can be a useful tool to understand the gist of Spanish and French too.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Luca — There are many difficulties, in fact, I think it's quite a difficult language to learn. We have many articles and pronouns and different words for masculine and feminine. The best way to learn is speaking and reading a lot, watching movies or listening to podcasts, in order to fully immerse yourself in the language.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Luca — In school Italian was a subject that we feared because the lessons were mostly focused on grammar and grammar can be tricky, but I believe the best way to learn is, in fact, put the grammar book down and read fiction, listen to people talking and have a more interactive experience with the language.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Luca — By living in the UK I've met many students and language learners from all over the world and I got to know what they find difficult in their respective language and what sounds they struggle with. This has given me an insightful knowledge of the challenges that they might face with Italian and I can help them in their learning journey.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Luca — I can quickly identify what the student needs and design customised activities. I know what to prioritise in order for the students to see relevant and immediate improvements.
