Enthusiastic Italian Tutor; Italian Teacher

As a graduate from the University of Pisa, with a Masters degree (honours) in Philosophy, I have spent last year cultivating two other passions of mine: food and teaching Italian. While attending a professional masters degree in Food Quality Management and Communication, I got a DITALS qualification for teaching Italian as a foreign language. The DITALS training and the following internship at Istituto Linguistico Mediterraneo (Pisa) taught me how to manage individual students and a class of students with varying levels and ages, and how to plan a lesson, working both from textbooks and creating my own materials (e.g. teaching Italian with food and cooking). I am an enthusiastic teacher capable of motivating students by creating an easy and positive relationship with them. In all of this, philosophy has not been left behind: teaching a language for me means also teaching a culture, sharing ideas, and confronting points of view with young and older people; and this is precisely what philosophy aims to do. Currently, I am doing a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Warwick.

Patient, friendly and knowledgable teacher

Lorenzo was a voluntary language teacher classes held at the University of Warwick. I attended his class every week which was very well prepared and included hand outs.

Lorenzo was capable of teaching Italian at a high level (to university students studying Italian) but I am confident that he is able to teach at a lower level as well as he is very adaptable. I feel this because we adapted our lessons with him according to our needs.

In addition, I feel that he is professional enough to make an excellent tutor to anyone who is lucky enough to employ him.

Excellent Italian teacher

I am a professional living in London for the past 10 years. I studied Italian with Lorenzo in Pisa, Italy in 2015. Lorenzo is an excellent teacher and he is also very personable and easy to talk to. Unlike some other Italian teachers, Lorenzo is also fluent in English. I would highly recommend him as an Italian language teacher.

Excellent Tutor

Lorenzo always comes with a well prepared lesson plan and tailors the lesson to my needs. The lesson always has a very good balance between covering important grammar but also starting to develop some conversational skills. He is always very patient and encouraging and very easy to get on with. You even get recommendations on great Italian places to eat in London.
