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.

About Me

Hi! My nationality is Russian. I finished high school in Finland, graduated as a Bachelor in Business Management in Belgium, now working remotely in sales for a British company full-time.

As for my personality, I am an easy-going, friendly person, inspiring and motivating others. I've been teaching languages for 5 years now, feel free to contact me if you need help.

Russian language is my native and I've been learning it since my childhood. As for English language, I've been living abroad for 7 years now, always communicating in English and developed it up to a fluent level. Italian language I continue learning now for two years and currently have B2 (teach only basic Italian).

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching Russian to several Finnish students few years several times a week as well as three Belgian people on a weekly and monthly basis. As for English, I gave classes to Russian people mostly and one international friend of mine. I only taught one person Italian language this summer.

It was an awesome experience for me and for them with a fast language progress, therefore I would like to continue doing it. I really enjoyed the process of teaching languages, so I would really like to help others to learn them here on Apprentus.

I take preparation for the class very seriously, do research to facilitate easier information processing and make lessons more entertaining/interesting for the kids/adults, adapt content and the way of teaching towards different personalities of students and their knowledge levels of the language, generate topics to keep discussion with the students ongoing and search/improve student's weak areas in the language.

Skilled at teaching, communication, time-management, planning, creativity and organization. I easily connect with different students and communicate effectively.

I'm so happy I found Mariia to help me learn Russian. She is extremely professional and friendly, she manages to make it fun and easy to understand - the hours are passing so quickly! After only a couple a lessons my understanding of the Russian language has already improved a lot. You can see Mariia works hard to prepare the lessons and adapt to the level of the student! Definitely recommend you learn with her!
Very skilled, patient and friendly teacher. Maria takes her time and has different ways to explain things. She is a great teacher and I would recommend her to everyone who would like to learn Russian.
Nice and dynamic teacher, providing precise examples to improve student’s russian skills. Flexible on schedule and answering fast. Very pleased with her service.
Russian may seem difficult at the first sight, but I will do my best to prove it is not so hard as it seems! The class is suitable for all people (kids, students, adults) who would like to study Russian for various reasons. I always create a personal program for every student in order to satisfy different levels of Russian and adapt towards specific needs. The focus is, of course, put on studying vocabulary, grammar and most importantly speaking. The student can already say some basics starting from the first class. As soon as some basics are learned, communication will be practiced in a creative ad customized way. I will show various videos, texts and exercises to do together and provide written homework for further practice. The lesson is structured as following (depending on personal needs, goals and knowledge): - Homework overview and check up - New material shown and explained - Examples given for grammar, texts, vocabulary - Discussion of the topic and Q&A session - Extra additional information shared - Conversational practice - New homework given
Did you always dream to learn English language and haven't done it yet? I am here to help you out! It is one of the most popular languages on the planet, therefore it is very important to know it. This class is aimed at individuals (either kids, students or adults) who wish to learn it. You can already know basics and would like to continue learning more further on or you are starting from scratch and have a long way in front to pursue. By this class I would like to immerse you into English language environment. 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 English grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and English 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.
Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.

Fortunella
Native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
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 :) Please contact me for a tailored learning program designed for your needs!

Gemma
Learn and improve to speak and write Italian with a real Florentine
Do you love Italian people, history and food and you would like to speak the language? I am an Italian native speaker from Florence, and I've also been a language student myself for a long time! If you want to be able to interact with Italians quickly, I can give you some tips about the correct pronunciation and fundamental grammar and vocabulary, but also Italian art and folklore. Lessons will be tailored according to student's needs, level and mother language. I am also available to proofread your writings.

Emma
- Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills. Most important is that each course is based on the needs, interests and availability of the student. - The method is mainly what is called communicative, aimed at stimulating the student to speak immediately and put the focus on the functional aspect of the language. For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.

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!

Valentina
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.

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!

Learn Italian from a native speaker: grammar, oral and written skills!
Hello, I'm Verdiana and I'm a Master student at KU Leuven. I tutor students and offer private lessons since I was 16, thus I've gained quite some experience on the topic. My main focus is on foreign language because I've studied them for 5 years. Here in Leuven though, I would like to teach Italian, my native language. During a one-hour-class, you'll get the chance to explore the (difficult but fascinating) Italian grammar, to practice both your oral and written skills and to learn some useful Italian phrases. Don't hesitate to contact me in case of any question!

Alice

I went to a French school in Rome until I was 18, I currently study in an International university and just did an exchange in Argentina.
