My name is Serena and I help students from all over the world become fluent in Italian.
I am a professional tutor of Italian as a second language (as well as Latin and Ancient Greek). In the past 5 years, I have worked with 120+ students from all over the world and gained over 1300 hours of teaching experience, working both as a teaching assistant at university (UCL and University of Manchester) and as a private tutor.
My sessions are aimed at speaking Italian from day one. In each lesson, you'll learn new words, idiomatic expressions, and linguistic structures and immediately put them into practice. In my classes, I usually include a mixture of written exercises, comprehension activities, and listening tasks, and I always make sure to set aside time to practice conversation. My lessons are aimed at students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds.
I am an Italian native speaker and passionate about languages: over the years I have studied and perfected English, Latin, Greek, and Russian. I obtained a BA in English and Russian in Italy, an MA, and a PhD in Classics from the University of Manchester. I also hold an Associate Fellowship from AdvanceHE (formerly Higher Education Academy).
N.B. At the moment I am only able to offer ONLINE classes.
Learning Italian on your own can be challenging, but with the right guidance and resources targeted at your objectives and learning style, it will become very enjoyable and rewarding.
This depends on a number of factors but it mostly has to do with how much time you spend practicing the language every day.
