About Francesca


Bio

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 addition to Latin, French and German. I can honestly say I master the Italian grammar in all of its structures.
I worked for an American Bank in Italy for 10 years as a Senior Associate.

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 addition to Latin, French and German. I can honestly say I master the Italian grammar in all of its structures.
I worked for an American Bank in Italy for 10 years as a Senior Associate.
When I moved here in 2017, I was looking for a career change and I started to teach Italian. I have been doing that non-stop ever since.
I currently am tutoring about 20 adults who are trying to better their Italian. I work with children on a weekly basis and occasionally tutor high school and college students. I have also had the opportunity to teach local private schools, creating my own lesson plan and delivering it, while assessing the class and making sure the goals were met.
I am a very passionate teacher and seeing the enthusiasm in my students’ eyes when they learn with me is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. My knowledge and personality combined with my love for sharing my language and culture is the key to the success I have been having. I easily adapt to my students' goals and levels and tailor my course plans to their learning preferences. I can engage students in person as well as online, thanks to my extensive expertise with online learning tools.
Last but not least, I can answer any question about Italy and the Italian culture my clients have, I lived there for 36 years and I go back at least 2 months every year!
I am ready to help more people improve their confidence with their language skills 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!

Fantastic Tutor - Highly Recommend!

My first lesson with Francesca was great! We went through the basics of pronunciation (vowels, consonants), which is a solid foundation for learning any language. She uploaded words to practice and it was a helpful mixture of myself trying to pronounce letters properly, and learning from how she said them. Looking forward to many more lessons!

Francesca is an awesome bilingual English Italian tutor!

Francesca is a wonderful, attentive tutor for both my husband and me. I have a moderate ability of conversion in Spanish, my husband only speaks English. Francesca adjusts our lessons to our ability. Because she is a native Italian she incorporates intonation and real life situations that occur in Italy. I’m a former college professor so I understand how challenging teaching can be, she’s awesome and has a great laugh!! 😂😂😂

Wonderful Tutor

Francesca is helping my son improve his Italian. She’s very reliable, patient, and makes learning Italian easy! She has helped my son improve his Italian vocabulary, study for tests and practice conversing. I would recommend her others!

Super Knowledgeable and Really Nice!

Francesca is really knowledgeable and knows a lot, not just about Italian grammar and vocabulary, but also about Italian culture as well! She's really flexible with her lessons, whether you're a beginner and need help starting, to asking her for help with an AP Italian project from school! She can cover everything, from simple colors, to prepositions, to the subjunctive! I'm really happy that I found such an enthusiastic tutor to help me.
