  • A private tutor

    My private tuition allow you to take advantage of learning the Italian language with lessons based on student's individual needs designed to reach your goals with the methods that most suit you. My way of teaching is entirely focused on your need, moreover practical, so you will learn quickly what it is necessary for effective communication.

  • Location

    I teach in the area of Lugano, Ticino (Switzerland) and the travelling is included in the lesson price. Normally the lessons will take place in your own home, or where you are most comfortable. If necessary, I can also teach from my apartment, close to the Lugano station.

  • Skype

    You can study Italian with a native speaker from anywhere in the world. I give Italian lessons online through Skype, with video calls. This is great for conversation practice and language discussion; you will improve your speaking and listening skills. We can simply talk for the whole lesson, or we could do advanced lessons in grammar. You let me know what you want to learn (reading, pronunciation, listening, etc.) and we can decide the best course of action for you.

  • Times

    I work flexible hours and can teach at hours that suit you, weekends excluded. The length of our lessons is up to you, but typically private lessons run for 1 or 2 hours at a time (lesson of 60 minutes).


Included in the price is preparation of bespoke material for your lesson, and my travel and administration costs.
