Learn the language of love with me _ italiano per tutti

Italian is my mother tongue, I love its sound, its grammar structure, the culture it expresses.
I hope to pass on to my students my passion and enthusiasm, thanks to the experience I made at university, where I studied ancient Greek and Latin, then working as a teacher in high school, and gaining the DITALS, which is a diploma to teach Italian to foreigners.
I have experience with students of different levels and age, and I gear each lesson towards my students' goals and preferences.

Reviews (1)

I really recommend Silvia as a teacher. She made me feel immediately at ease and had exactly the right blend of encouragement and guidance to make the hour worthwhile and constructive.
Nel latino risiedono le radici non solo delle lingue romanze, ma anche della cultura europea. Imparare questa lingua e la sua letteratura può essere una sfida estremamente arricchente ed entusiasmante. Le mie lezioni mirano ad offrire gli strumenti per tradurre e apprezzare al meglio i testi latini, sottolineando come parole e strutture latine sono tutt'ora vive nelle lingue moderne.

Accent Reduction for non-native English speakers (USA or UK English)
Welcome! I specialize in aiding non-native English speaking professionals with accent reduction. I can help you learn either the American or British English accent. I'm also able to aid a client in public speaking skills if desired. I am a native American English speaker (born and raised in the USA), and I am a professional private voice instructor. I have several years experience teaching languages and specialize in English diction. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education and therefore have the ability to cater my lessons exactly to each individual student's needs. I specialize in developing a keen, discerning ear, and connecting that identification of sound to slight physical alterations that can make a big difference for you in your daily professional and social life. I can help you communicate more articulately and efficiently. First I help you achieve the correct recognition and production of the speech sounds necessary for English. I will then help you use correct intonation patterns, stress, and rhythm in conversational speech. Accent Reduction will help you speak more clearly, freely, and directly. Feel free to send me a quick message, and we can set up a lesson. I look forward to meeting you!

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

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.
