This is how 3 referees rated Francesca:
I am a qualified Italian and Spanish, teacher. I am enthusiastic about languages and always trying new engaging and inspiring teaching methods. I aim to include original elements as much as possible such as video, poems and songs to my lessons so that I can boost students' learning.
I have been tutoring since 2009 both in italy and Spain. After graduating in Applied anguages in Italy I spent one year teaching English as Second language and Italian in Spain first privately and then in academy.
After completing the PGCE year at St.Mary University (London) and obtaining the qualified teacher status I taught Italian and Spanish in secondary schools in London and Kent up to advanced level and French to KS3 and KS4 level.
I have extensive experience in preparing students for GCSE exams and A levels/ IB diplomas
Thanks to my experience in different schools (in Spain and UK) I developed a personal teaching method. I aim to create a calm and positive atmosphere so that my client can feel ready to learn. I follow the new national curriculum requirements as my lessons are characterised by a strong grammar approach and I normally dedicate time to the four essential skills: listening, speaking, writing and reading.
During my lessons I provide my clients with all the necessary equipment to succeed in this exciting experience. I use books (digital too) magazines, podcasts, songs, videos, poems, films and internet in general to maintain the students' interest high and engage with the country's culture.

Francesca is friendly and approachable but does not waste time in getting our daughter to work hard. We would recommend her to anyone.
My son is really enjoying his lessons and has made much more progress.
He is really enthusiastic about his studies and is now keen to keep learning French even after his GCSEs so he can eventually speak fluently
