Information About Francesca - Twickenham teacher - (9 reviews)
This is how 7 referees rated Francesca:
I am a native Italian teacher with more than fifteen years of experience teaching Italian in schools and privately (both in Italy and in England).
I've always loved my language and really enjoy passing this love on to someone else by teaching.
My lessons last 2 hours, normally starting with a conversation (with absolute beginners this time is spent in role playing, games and repetitions), followed by homework correction, grammar studies and listening to pre-recorded Italian conversations.
The lessons are very enjoyable and time goes quickly!
MY LESSONS CAN ALSO BE VIA ZOOM
I am a CLTA (Certificate in Teaching Italian to Adults gained at The International House in Rome) qualified tutor of Italian, with over 15 years` experience teaching Italian to adults of all backgrounds, whether learning individually or as a group. I have therefore developed a good understanding of the problems encountered by students who may be learning a language for the first time, as well as those who may be returning to learning after a long gap, and are therefore not only unused to learning, but may need to somehow fit their studies into the limits imposed by a full time working and family life.
I have also a very good record of achievement for students undertaking GCSE, A Level examinations, MLAT test and University interviews.
Whether you are interested in simply learning the basics for a holiday in Italy, need help in preparing for GCSE, AS/A2 or MLAT exams, would like to improve and update your current knowledge for use in the Italian work market, or simply have a passion for Italian language and culture, I can create an individually tailored course focusing on your own specific learning needs, using a variety of up-to-date learning techniques.
I use the International House method in written and spoken Italian which involves the use of authentic texts, visual, audio and internet resources, also introducing culture, politics and anything else that is of the student’s interest.
This method enables the learners to speak and improve their skills as quickly as possible. Fluency and vocabulary would expand naturally as the course progresses.

She’s tuned into and interested in my work life and interests. I feel she cares. This has made me feel comfortable and able to push myself to learn, grow and practice Italian with her. I feel respected, comfortable, safe and able to take the risks to venture out of my comfort zone, make mistakes and learn!
