About Me

I am Margherita, and I am a food geek.
I have always been attracted by everything related to food: from unusual ingredients, traditional recipes or exciting new combinations.
I had great teachers, starting from the women in my family who taught me to understand and to have a brave but respectful attitude towards ingredients.
From there I built my culinary experience, having encountered and worked with amazing chefs who helped me understanding food and cuisine from a higher perspective and expressing my compelling need for newness through my recipes.
I would love to share my knowledge and love for cuisine teaching you how to climb the steps of your culinary journey.

Education

University degree in Chemistry
Several training in
software development, analysis and design
Project Management
Safety and security
Communication
European funding

Experience / Qualifications

Training on the job with several chefs in Italy
Personal chef
As main activity I work as a feee lance supporting small enterprises and start-ups accessing funding provided by the European Commission
Creative cooking is not just putting random ingredients together with an aesthetic touch. Rather it is about creating new dishes that tell a small story, tickle, and excite all our senses and especially our imagination! Aesthetic is important because we eat with our eyes (first), so the glance is fundamental to amaze and create expectation and suspense, but those promises and expectations must and confirmed in the smell and ultimately in the taste. A dish is a game of consistencies, colors, and flavors that mix and harmonize with each other! I am a very experienced personal chef and I love to share my knowledge and passion. I bring you from beginner to advanced level always with interesting and tasty recipes.

Italian language: grammar and conversational skills
As an Italian native speaker, I would like to focus not only on grammar and formal aspects of the language, but also on the cultural context in which phrases are used and coversation. My classes will be flexible and adaptable to the student's needs.

I can give Italian lessons to whoever would like to improve his skills (conversation, grammar, writing...) or for those who would like to start to learn this amazing language! I can also help current Bachelor students in Japanese with their studies. I have a N2 level and I have been in Japan for 8 months.

Ugne Aleksandra
English (grammar/pronunciation/spelling) help for adults and children
Hi, My name is Ugnė and I am a 20-year-old student. I speak fluent English, Lithuanian, and German. I was born in Lithuania, completed primary school in Austria, did the Middle Years Program in Lithuania at an international school, received my International Baccalaureate Diploma in Denmark, and currently, I am doing my bachelors in Psychology here in the Netherlands at Leiden University. From the age of 10 I have only attended English speaking schools as well as completed various education programs in English. I am able to teach using only English, German, or Lithuanian. I am willing to assist both adults and children (such as doing homework). My approach with tutoring is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and friendly as teaching should be enjoyable for the student. I also have babysitting experiences and experiences working with young children particularly with special needs. Feel free to send me a message and we can have a call to see whether I am suitable for you or your child. :)

Denise
English, Spanish and Catalan lessons (native speaker)
I am fluent in English and Spanish and Catalan are my native languages. I don't speak Dutch, so my classes would be 100% in the language we are studying. I have been tutoring in Spain for 2 years. I have helped people with English exams (FCE), with school exams and also helping kids with their homework. Let me know if you have any question!:)

Roberto
Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

Anna
Italian Grammar and Literature. English Grammar and conversation
I am an Italian native speaker with a bachelor in Italian Literature and Linguistics. In Italy, I usually teach English to high school students​, or adults who want to improve their skills with this language. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.

Alessandro
Italian linguist from Leiden university offers Italian lesson including personal homework, personalized lessons of grammar and conversation
The difference between a self-learning book and an experienced teacher with a linguistics background is that a book will teach you to understand a specific set of sentences, while after 10 lessons with me you will be able to understand and CREATE new sentences. The focus is on both sets on grammar and on oral comprehension. My advice is therefore to organize a lesson of 90 minutes in which 30 minutes will be dedicated to: - Grammar (how the Italian language works and how to translate) - Reading and listening (comprehension) - Talking (production), with me or other students. My charge will also include: - Weekly homework (if requested) - Lessons prepared on the specific needs of the students - Assistance 24/h about any questions you might have on Italian (and Italy!)

Also offering IELTS preparation course (English) for the highest possible score. Duration is also flexible!

Chloé
French Lessons (Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading, Pronunciation, Spelling, Writing)
As a French native speaker, I would be happy to help young pupils and students with learning and practicing French. This class is best suited for students who have a beginner or intermediate level of French and may encounter difficulties with French grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading, spelling, or pronunciation. I have specialized in French literature in secondary school, therefore I can also help students with the methodology and structure of writing essays in French. For each class, I will prepare exercises (which will vary from student to student depending on their needs) and during each lesson we will complete the exercises together and work on the mistakes. If needed, I will also assign homework. My goal is to teach French in an interactive, engaging, and stimulating manner to make sure that it is both enjoyable and enriching for the student. Furthermore, it is important for me to assess the student's needs and provide him/her/they with the most adapted learning methods which will allow me to address the student's shortcomings in the best possible manner.

Ludovica
Italian classes for all ages with Italian speaker, experienced teacher. Also available for conversation and test preparation tutoring.
I am an Italian international law graduate based in Leiden. I have a DILIT diploma to teach Italian to foreigners, meaning that I prefer to use a non-academic approach to teach the Italian language. I have over 5 years experience in teaching and tutoring. I usually teach my classes in Italian, but I can also speak English and Spanish. We will discuss the goals to achieve during the course, based on your wishes and interests, and we will decide together what kind of methodology is the best suited for you!

Chiara
Wanna improve your Italian speaking and grammar skills?
Hello everyone! I'm an Italian expat studying international relations at Leiden University. Back in Italy I used to give English classes to students in need, and I also worked for a while for an association where I taught Italian to African immigrants. Here in Leiden I would like to teach Italian to people who don't only want to improve their grammar skills, but also their conversation skills.

Angela
Italian language and grammatics tutoring for adults and children
I have several experience in teaching my mother tongue (italian) to other international students, but also to adults or kids. My goal is to explain even hard concepts in a clear way, in order to make easy and funny the learning experience. I am also available for a regular conversation practice (also because I enjoy talking very much and I am plenty of ideas about different things we could talk about).

Chiara
Interactive Italian Classes with Native Speaker - All Age Groups
Tired of your italian friends mocking you for your "bad" cooking skills? Bored of using the same old italian phrases while on vacation? Want to give your second-generation kids the chance to fluently communicate with their grandparents? This class is for you, and for whoever fell in love with italian culture and its chaotic people. We will address all language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) in a relaxed one-to-one environment, while alternating the necessary grammar and vocabulary learning with language games, music and interactive discussions on news. My class will be held in Italian and English, and it will be tailored to the needs of the student. Assignments will be given after every class.
