Native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
This class is aiming at confident Italian speakers and practice is the best way to improve language fluency.
My students and I love to split each class into two parts: the first half generally focused on grammar (foundations are crucial) and the second always dedicated to speaking activities and conversation.
We'll talk about a number of different topics and share content and ideas while having lots of fun.

Classes will be in English, hopefully in Italian :)

Nice person, very empathic
Great teacher! Fortunella makes the learning environment fun and interactive, while also giving good explanations and exercises.
Fortunella has been a wonderful and energetic tutor! Aside from vocabulary words and verb conjugation, I’ve learned a lot about the culture and received various recommendations for Italian movies, shows, and songs. I’ve had such a great experience since she could pinpoint my weaknesses so that I could improve much faster. Grazie mille!

Sono contenta di averti conescuto, grazie per la tua dedicazione in ogni giornata, aspetto di ritornare a fare lezione con te! ---------------------------- Fortunella is simply FANTASTIC, both personal and professionally speaking...

Zé Eduardo
Portuguese, Spanish and Italian classes tailor-made for your needs
Hello there, My name is Zé and I'm here to teach you my native language! I am a polyglot who speaks four languages (currently learning my fifth one, Japanese), so I know the struggles of learning a new language from scratch. I can adapt our lessons to be more structured or more flexible depending on your desires and needs. Lessons can be general or focused on specific topics, depending on the client. I am available in the center of Amsterdam, starting on the 2nd of October. Looking forward to meet you!

Russian language and Literature for children with Russian-speaking background
Если Вы говорите по-русски и хотите, чтобы Ваш ребенок смог общаться на русском языке, когда вырастет, не только в семье, но и на работе, то этот курс для Вас. Я преподаю детям русский язык и литературу в одной из русских школ в Нидерландах. Поэтому не понаслышке знаю, какие проблемы возникают при обучении и как с ними справиться. Во время урока используются как стандартные русскоязычные учебники ФГОС, так и специальные издания для детей билингвов, живущих за рубежом. Основа курса направлена на улучшение письменной речи и расширение словарного запаса. Каждый урок включает в себя интересные для каждого возраста домашние задания. Возможны групповые занятия.

Arithmetic and mathematics for primary school students
Is your child in primary school and does maths require tutoring? Does he think math is stupid? Turn me on! With fun and funny tricks and mnemonics, your child will quickly change his mind. Creating a good pedagogical climate and building a rich learning environment is always my goal. I stimulate the students to discover autonomously, to discuss together, to experience and to come to conclusions. My job is not to fill a barrel, but to light a fire. I am also constantly working to keep my students in the zone of closest development. In this way I promote their constant development and growth.

French classes for all levels from a native with linguistics studies
I offer French classes, for all ages and all levels, whether you're starting from scratch, or trying to improve your skills, struggling with your homework or preparing for an exam. About myself: I'm a 21-year-old third-year linguistics student in Amsterdam. I am fluent in French, English, and Romanian, and have a good knowledge of Italian and Dutch. As well as being fluent in French and other languages, my linguistics background gives me a lot of understanding of how different minds respond better to different approaches in teaching. Looking to get into education and teaching after my graduation, I am a serious yet fun teacher and I'm confident I could help you take your French to the next level, by adapting my tutoring to exactly what you need!

Learn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past ten years. I have taught privately and at language schools like La Scuola Italiana del Greenwich Village in New York and ItalCultura, the school of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. During the first few lessons I will make sure you have the tools to pronounce and identify all the sounds of the Italian language. This step is essential! And it will make everything easier afterwards. When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling. When you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I will customize my materials to your interests, needs and desired pace. And because you are learning from a native Italian you will also learn about Italian culture and history. You will absorb a way of thinking, not just grammar rules. I speak a bunch of languages so I know a thing or two about how tedious language classes can be. My terrifying French teacher in middle school made us repeat the same fake dialogue from a really bad book ad nauseam, over and over and over again. Some of those dialogues are carved in my brain: “Bonjour, je m’appelle Richard Drapeau, je viens du Canada, je suis Canadien…” When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling and we will go on “talking walks” because when you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I hold a degree in Lingue e Letterature Straniere (Foreign Languages and Literatures) from Università Roma Tre (equivalent to an American MA) and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. I wrote a thesis about translating a long epic poem by W. H. Auden and I tried to ride a horse across America.

English Lessons, Conversations, Tutoring, TEFL Certified, Homework Assistance, Business English
You learn to speak, understand and write better English in a fun, personal way. Together we expand your vocabulary and improve your spelling and grammar by talking about your interests! If you also like literature, animals, sustainable living, travel, art or yoga then we have something in common to get into! I am a Teaching English Foreign Learners (TEFL) certified teacher who grew up in English in international schools abroad. I even think in English now, and my accent when I speak is mildly American / accentless.

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!

Ignacio
Spanish classes for beginners, easy, dynamic and inexpensive.
Simple and motivating Spanish classes for beginners. I already have many students so they could be in groups or individually. I have students of all ages and all nationalities and I love watching their learning process. You will learn Spanish at your own pace, after a level test I will check what you are ready for and what we can start on, focusing it your way. It can be Spanish to work, to travel or even to teach it. Feel free to try it.

Italian Language Lessons for kids, students, adults (online/offline)
Are you interested in Italian culture and language? Are you planning to move to Italy for work, study, travel, volunteering? Then this class is for you! Italy is one of the countries where not that many citizens speak English language, therefore it might be difficult to adapt to locals without knowing Italian, at least basic one. By this class I would like to immerse you into Basic Italian language and culture. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of Italian grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and Italian is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.

French and/or English tutoring, conversation class or test preparation
French and/or tutoring for children or adults, all levels. My goal is to keep students challenged and passionate, and move towards real progress and improvement together. I am very flexible as to what can be taught and would prepare classes in advance. I can assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports.

Matteo
Italian Language and Literature for every level. Conversation and Culture with a native speaker.
Lessons can be structured in many ways: - A more sistematic learning of Italian, going through Grammar, Writing, Reading and so on. - A special focus on conversation and chatting, while also learning and practicing new elements of the language. - A study path aimed to enjoy the beauty of Italian Literature (although for such a class the student's level is required to be already fairly high). Of course, a mix of all these categories is possible, and every lesson will be completely tailored on the needs of the learner. In addition to this, we will make large use of movies, songs, newspapers and everything that can make learning one of the most enjoyable moments.

Valentina
