About me

My name is Margherita, I'm Italian and I live in Milan.

I really like languages and I've studied them throughout my life. My students come from many different countries: United Kingdom, Russia, Spain, France, Brazil, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Poland, Turkey, Australia, China, Indonesia, Argentina and United States. I’m an Italian native speaker and I live in Italy, so I’m exposed all day to inputs in real, contemporary Italian and this helps me teach you the authentic language as it’s currently used in Italy. I speak seven languages, so I know the challenges you'll face when learning a new one!

Teaching Approach

What to expect:

- Structured teaching, based on communicative-approach textbooks which cover all aspects of language learning.

- Materials sent by email before each lesson.

- The choice of materials is tailor-made and based on many factors: current level of the student, distance of their mother tongue from Italian, goals and learning style.

- If you have specific goals or weak points, I’ll add extra activities to the lessons or as homework.

- Homework is not compulsory; however, please keep in mind that learning a language is fun and effective only when both the student and the teacher put some effort into it.

- Conversation is integrated into lessons that cover all aspects of language learning and conversation skills are mainly developed through activities which simulate real-life situations.

- During lessons I usually speak Italian, but we can switch to your language whenever it’s needed. I can use English, French, Spanish and Portuguese and, with more patience on my students’ part, German and Russian.
