I am an Italian native speaker and I am fluent in English, having lived a decade in a few different places in the UK. Furthermore I speak Spanish to a beginner-to-intermediate level. I’ve got two passions in life: music and cultures and they both relate to languages. Music is known to be a universal language and different cultures connect with, and influence each other, through the use of spoken language. My formal education lays in music, holding a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, and a five-year diploma as a Jazz bass player from the Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado in Milan. I’ve been teaching music for fifteen years and during the last one I've decided to expand over to languages, by taking up the challenge to combine my passion for teaching with the love for languages. I’ve developed the latter during my many years abroad, where I shared my everyday life with people from all over te world. My method is essentially based on grammar and conversation, alternating the two based on the student’s level of fluency. Once the basics are mastered I focus on conversation, especially providing thorough explanation about typical words and expressions and their various acceptations within different contexts. At times I may also add the odd etymology side note when relevant. I also like to use readings upon subjects that are of the student’s interest, as this aids in nurturing their motivation. Given the transformative and fluid nature of speech, my aim is to deliver an organic learning experience, able to be put to fruition from the start and in everyday life, but that also won’t fail to address the differences between formal and informal interactions. Hence, avoiding inhibit a swift communication in favour of grammatical accuracy. A second level of my teaching focuses on expanding the student's writing skills and this is aimed to individuals who may have achieved a solid grasp of the basis and a wider knowledge on vocabulary. This is because writing is an art on its own and its objective is to convey one's true thoughts and feelings, therefore it requires a dedicated effort. I can teach in English, Italian and Spanish and lessons can be either in person at your place or mine, or via Zoom. Get in touch for more information!

Trusted teacher: Dear All, Whether you are new to learning the French language, whether you wish to enrich your knowledge or whether you are aiming for its oral, written and literary mastery, I will be happy to share my passion for the French language with you. I offer private lessons adapted to your current level and your ambitions, in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. We will cover these four key chapters together through a continuous, methodical and participatory learning process: - Grammar; - Vocabulary; - Punctuation; and - Oral pronunciation. It should be noted that the course dedicated to beginners includes a detailed and complete introduction of one hour preparing for the development of the four chapters mentioned above. In a more personalized approach and at your request, we can also address and deepen more specific topics, such as: - the syntax ; - the analysis of text(s); - literary genres; - the history of the language and its roots (Greco-Latin); - the linguistic and communicational specificities within the Francophonie; - reading a book of your choice or my recommendation (from "The Little Prince" by Saint-Exupéry to "Un Amour de Swann" by Marcel Proust). The private lessons that I offer you can, of course, be part of the continuity or the reinforcement of academic courses that you would already follow at school, at the University or elsewhere. As such, your personal media will be welcome (books, notebooks, sheets, etc.). Hoping to be able to contribute to your learning, I remain at your disposal for any further information and wish you much success in your efforts. Yours sincerely, Stephane

Rianne
Rianne was a good choice of teacher. She is extremely patient - and goodness knows trying to teach a slow-learner like me requires a great deal of patience!! She is also friendly but firm. She always arrives on time, with classes prepared but isn't inflexible with the learning. For example, If we start to stray away from the book a little and pursue something that helps me understand a point of grammar or get to grips with the pronunciation of a specific phrase, she encourages it. She understands that for me, learning a new language is a real challenge and my confidence is not especially high whilst doing it - and i'm grateful that she sees this, tries to adjust the way she teaches to fit the way that i learn and doesn't show any exasperation! I would recommend Rianne wholeheartedly.

Benyapa
I have been learning from K. Benyapa (Beauty) for approx. 3 months. She is a brilliant teacher! She puts in much more effort to design a curriculum and prepare for lessons, than any other teacher I have had over my 7 years in Thailand. Kru Beauty is willing to tailor classes for your needs, which for me, is Thai citizenship. The lessons feel a lot more personalized than the usual running through of a "Thai Conversation" text book, like many other teachers do. Highly recommended for all level of Thai language, from beginner to advanced!

Islame
Islam is always organized and prepared for class. Her lessons are clearly structured so that students can easily follow it. Patience is a virtue. The most important quality that Islam is very patient with her students and to deal with the same questions and problems over and over again. she never give up on her students and would try out new ways to help us succeed.
