Lesson Details

Italian

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I was born in Italy and lived there for 36 years. I went to school there and I have a Bachelor Degree from one of the oldest Universities in Europe, the University of Verona. Before college, I attended the Liceo Linguistico, where I extensively studied Italian Grammar in connection to Latin, French and German. I can honestly say I master the Italian grammar in all of its structures.
I have been working in Customer Service for an American Bank in Italy for the last 10 years. In addition to that, I have been tutoring students of different ages, Elementary School all the way to High School, since I was in college. The subjects I covered were for the most part English, Italian and Math. I was also tutoring adults who wanted to learn English as beginners or improve their conversation skills. I loved my job at the bank, but at the same time there was nothing more satisfying than seeing my students succeed: I have always enjoyed helping people improve their communication skills and improve their school grades.
I am currently tutoring adults who are trying to better their fluency in Italian and I am officially hired also by Berlitz, one of the oldest Language education company which operates in more than 50 countries in the world.
I am ready to help more people improve their confidence with this language but also present it to students who never heard it before and want to start as a beginner. I am knowledgeable, patient, fun and 100% Italian!

Teaching since:
2001

I was born and raised in Vicenza, an hour west from Venice. My husband is American, we met in Italy and after living together there for 15 years, we decided to move back to the US last Summer. We have two kids, 7 and 4, who are perfectly bilingual.
I have always enjoyed teaching English to little kids and adult friends in Italy, so I can only enjoy teaching Italian even more. Although I'm enjoying this adventure in the US, I miss my country tremendously and teaching and speaking my own language is one of the things that excites me the most. I have also travelled Italy and most of Europe extensively, and I love discussing about all the different cultural environments that I've experienced.

FRANCESCA was wonderful. She was receptive to my needs and presented as a competent instructor. The first meeting with her was comfortable, informative and productive. At this point, I feel my experience will be worthwhile and I feel grateful to have found someone that will assist me in meeting my goal of enhancing Italian language skills. Thank you, FRANCESCA and TakeLessons personnel!

Francesca is a great teacher. A native of Italy, she really is a suberb instructor. After two lessons she has me speaking Italian. Highly recommended.
