 Stefania is an exceptional teacher, she makes learning Italian interesting and engaging. Her lessons are thoughtful, organized and impactful. I am very lucky to have found such an extraordinary teacher who is a master of the Italian language while making the learning process approachable and fun. I look forward to our lessons every week because I can see my progress and I feel very comfortable and encouraged by Stefania. She really is the very BEST!

About me - English

Hi my name is Stefania, I am 34 and I live in the countryside close to Rome. I have been teaching Italian for 9 years and and every time I start a lesson with a new person it is always an amazing experience, since a language is not just learning a new word or a new verb is much more than that. It is an encounter with a different culture which makes the study of a language more valuable and meaningful,

I am an easy going and friendly person who never loses sight of the professionalism a teacher should always have. I will be more than happy to answer all your questions/doubts about grammar and pronunciation

Teaching Approach

My approach is always communicative. I design and implement lessons plans for young students and adults at different levels by tailoring teaching methods to suit their individual needs, that can be for business or cultural reasons.

I always try to motivate and direct students to maximum performance by encouraging a positive and energetic environment.

I often use role plays to stress the importance of context to language learning, to develop grammar in a simpler way and to improve pronunciation. We will also read and discuss topics taken from newspapers, blogs, books which offer an interesting and updated view of the language.
