About me

Ciao! I'm Sara and I have been one of the first online tutors of Italian. I started teaching online (and offline) in 2005 when I was a very young University student. After 13 years, I still have the same passion and enthusiasm for my language, teaching and talking with my wonderful students. I have met many of them in Italy and abroad. What I love the most is when after few weeks also a once complete beginner can discuss stuff in Italian.

I have too many interests to mention... languages, books, other cultures, Asia, travelling, cooking, contemporary art, photography, movies...

Teaching Approach

I absolutely love Verbal Planet because through Skype classes we can combine the effectiveness of having a one-to-one session (perfectly tailored on your needs and interests) with a professional teacher with being at home in a totally informal and cozy environment... I believe there is nothing better than having your coffee or a cup of wine with your tutor while discussing things in Italian!

My teaching approach: there is not just ONE method to learn a language... we have to find the right approach for YOU. My aim is getting you interested in the Italian language and culture... we will read and comment newspaper articles, listen to Italian songs... and we will do a LOT, a LOT of conversation!!!!

My tutorial sessions with Sara have been productive. Sara has been patient, positive and enjoyable. I plan on using her service weekly and, at some point, perhaps twice a week. As an American, living in the USA, it is a big benefit to speak with an Italian (born, raised and living in Italy) rather than someone in this country. Many nuances of speaking Italian are lost in my local classes (One italian born teacher with 15 American students in a class). Working with Sara is the next best thing to being in Italy to practice the language.

I have just had my third lesson with Sara and am enjoying learning Italian with her very much. She is always available for any additional matters I have with my studies and am so grateful for her kind support and attention to detail.

Sara is accomodative in teaching methods/styles. My preference for future lessons is more toward conversation, which she is able tol provide. The trial lesson was 100% in Italian (perfect!) and she used visual as well as written materials to better explain a few things to me. After my free trial lesson, I immediately booked my next lesson with Sara for next week. I think she will prove to be a valuable resource for me to improve my Italian conversational and comprehension skills. My game plan is to schedule one or two weekly sessions with her. The only criticism I have is not about Sara -- at times our Skype connection was a little sketchy. If not, I would have rated my lesson a 10 instead of 9. I'm excited to continue with Sara!

I have just had my introductory lesson with Sara and enjoyed it very much. Sara explained in detail my errors but not at the cost of disrupting the flow of learning. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with her
