creative tutoring

Italian and English

In my years as a private tutor, I have learnt that a teaching method must adapt to the individual student. In other words, a creative approach is needed.

Italian and English are beautiful and complex languages, expressions of rich and varied cultures. Learning them is a journey and as a creative tutor, I believe that you, the student, should choose the itinerary:

-       BEGINNER: if your journey is a holiday or an occasional trip, we can look into the basics of everyday communication and expressions, learning how to order in restaurants, buy train tickets, engage with market traders etc.

-       INTERMEDIATE: to help you expand your communication ability in written and spoken language, we can dig into the foundations of the language: grammar, syntax, pronunciation and vocabulary.

-       ADVANCED: we can create our own tailor-made activities, with a specific action plan of topics to explore in depth (whether it’s business, arts, literature, politics, society, law, food, etc.). If you already have a good grasp of the language, these targeted sessions will improve your confidence and help you take your learning to the next level.

"I booked lessons with Inga to help me brush up on my (very) rusty Italian skills. She tailored lessons to my skill level and interests, which made the sessions useful and enjoyable. Oh, and she’s totally lovely; she always corrects my mistakes with kindness and helps me push through my nervousness when it comes to actually speaking Italian.

Whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced speaker, if you want to learn Italian, you won’t find a better teacher."
