Italian language tutoring


30 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 31, 2020

As a certified Italian teacher (for non-native speakers) I will help you have a nice chat about a subject of your interest, discussing new Italian lexicon, grammar or cultural aspects starting from an article, a video or something else. We will have a shared Drive file, where we will take notes and I will add some suggestions to let you improve! Please, let me know which is your starting level and your interests so that I will be able to prepare something engaging for you!

1. We will have a Zoom call (I find that this is the most effective);
2. We will introduce each other and you will explain to me what are your learning goals;
3. We will have a chat about something / read an article together / I will explain a grammar structure (it depends on you needs)
4. We will practice what you have just learned;
5. I will give you some tips to improve your Italian :)

Training & Qualifications

I am a certified Italian teacher, owning the CEDILS certificate from the Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia (Certificazione in Didattica dell'Italiano a Stranieri). I am experienced in teaching Italian both in-person and online: I thought Italian in France and in England (during my Erasmus in Paris and in Oxford) and I am currently teaching only online.

What makes Italian so special?

About Valentina Sferra

I am an Italian PhD student in Naples, in History of the Italian Language. I am passionate about Language & Linguistics in general, and in particular in Italian, English and French (which I fluently s...peak and teach). I am a very curious and open-minded person. I love learning new things, organising (travels-/time-/money-/house-management are my hobbies...), crafting. I am currently very interested in personal finance. As side-hustle, I have been doing several jobs: waitressing, baby-sitting, party organiser and entertainer for children, private tuitions (which I still do!). I also worked as a librarian at my University and as a tutor for younger students: this enhanced my organising skills, especially in time-management, since I used to work on top of studying for my Bachelor's and Masters'. show more
