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!

Rami
Learn ARABIC for conversation or academic purposes (proper dialect "Fusha" or a variety of other middle eastern dialects)
As a language, Arabic may seem scary, whether you hear two people speaking it with a bit of an aggressive tone, or see the terrifying Alphabet being used and written in a different direction! However! Fear not! I can assure you, i felt the same way about Dutch, and was terrified to try and articulate the words and their meanings. However, after a year of going through a successful active learning course (which our classes will follow a similiar method to), and enough practice, i could confidently say i can hold my grounds, with the fear of the Dutch language being at bay ! In my 2 years of teaching experience, without the "over-use" of "English or other" languages and starting right from the beginning with Arabic, some students and friends of mine were able to speak Arabic with me, in addition to writing full essays, and even understood the general grammatical structure of the language, all of which took no more than a couple of months. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that Arabic is the second toughest language to learn after Chinese "Mandrin", meaning that expectations should be kept realistic, with time and practice being key.A year should suffice someone to be able to claim that they are at a "A1-B2" LEVEL, which is almost in the intermediate Zone. For our classes, THREE TYPES or METHODS could be chosen from: 1- The active learning extensive Method 2- The "school" Method 3- The "specific university subject tutoring" Method. 1- For the first and second methods, i will usually devise a specialized text book (Word/PDF, no need to hurt trees and print...) which will include all that we need throughout the course from necessary readings, literature, and grammar of the language. this book will be modified accordingly to the purpose of learning the language that you could clarify to me beforehand (whether academic in a specific field of science, or any other purposes...) 2- However, if your goal is purely conversation, and does not include learning proper Arabic (Fusha), the method of teaching differs a little. Here only the "school method" applies. Let me elaborate: In schools, we are taught to read and write "MUM, DAD" before we learn our ABCs, Thus "conversation" will be the main focus, accompanied by brief and on the surface piecing of the principles of the grammar, punctuation, and other related aspects whenever a new one is at hand. 3-Finally, if you are studying any of the Arts or Majors in University, and you need specific help concerning Arabic Subjects (Ba. Master. PHD levels), specific short classes, through the third method, will be offered, and through which we can: answer all your question, explain anything that you are having trouble with, and specific help that could also be offered according to your needs.

Practice & Learn Italian language and culture with a native from Tuscany!
Ciao! My name is Emma, I am from Tuscany, but I live in Leuven already for a couple of years. I teach Italian language, from beginners to advanced level, with love and passion through grammar exercises, conversations about culture, literature and daily news, but also playful games meant to learn new vocabulary and practice it. In this way, and through a clear communication of teacher-student, I have the best outcome in my classes. In my lessons, I've had students of all ages who were really motivated to practice or to start learning the language. Usually I don't teach with a book, I provide all the material to study on and the exercises, so you'll just need to have with you a pen and a notebook!

Katherine
Academic Essay Writing: learn to write papers and get high grades
I am a Research Master’s student in Philosophy at the KU Leuven from Toronto Canada. My native language is English and I also have background knowledge of French, however, I don’t speak it well. I teach private lessons on how to write essays in English in the Brussels and Leuven area. My academic career has provided me with a high level of proficiency in understanding of language structure, syntax and grammar. As an editor-in-chief for a university graduate journal in philosophy for two years now, I have cultivated my writing and editing abilities and want to share with you how to easily write and structure papers in order to achieve high grades. My techniques on how to write the perfect paper work for all subject areas. I have experience working with adults and children of all ages and backgrounds. I am available monday-friday as well as the weekends.

Claire
French for beginners, with native French speaker, all age
It is never too late to learn a language! The classes I offer will be cut out specifically for each student, from beginners to intermediate levels, to fit their needs and wants best. We will cover the basics of grammar, conjugation but also some conversation tips, and ready made sentences useful in daily life. Each student might also have their own passions, therefore, it seems as important as the rest to teach them the vocabulary behind. Learning is easier when done in amusement and around topics of interest.

Antonio
Italian professor, NATIVE and CELTA qualified, A-Levels, GCSE all levels
Hello everyone! I hold a doctorate in Italian, have been teaching Italian for 5 years and hold a CELTA teaching qualification. I've been preparing students for the A-Levels and GCSE (language + literature). I can prepare you for specific examinations, language lessons in general or teach you Italian for business. The lessons are for everyone, whatever their age or level (children to adults). I will make sure that you discover the Italian culture through the lessons, learn the correct pronunciation and of course learn some grammar. I am open to your needs and can speak a few languages to make sure you understand fully the lessons (of course, we’ll try to use mostly Italian in all our lessons depending on your level). I can’t wait to meet my new students! 😊
