Ciao! I am Francesca, a native Italian speaker. I was born and raised in Italy and I live in Chicago. I have a master degree and a certificate in teaching Italian to foreigners and I always keep up to date with new courses, because I think that being always updated in a field is very important.

I have been tutoring Italian in Italy and currently in US and gained significant teaching experience. I have been teaching Italian in two language schools for group classes, private and online lesson formats, all levels, all ages, using a fun, conversational and social approach. All my students are very satisfied with my teaching method, this was reflected by positive feedback.
Moreover, the desire to teach and disseminate Italian culture, led me to open a food blog. With my blog, I share my passion for cooking, history and Italian heritage with a focus on my region, Apulia.

I am a patient and engaging teacher, I will customize a curriculum for you based on your personal language goals and your interests. I can teach you Italian form the basics as beginner and accompany you to an advanced level.
Normally for absolute beginners I use English to teach the lessons, when you will reach the basics for understand, I will start to talk only in Italian. All my lessons are based on real life topics and they are interactive. After each lessons I will send you material review and homework.

NEW: Do you need the Italian citizenship through marriage? I can help you to pass the B1 (intermediate proficiency) linguistic certification for the Italian Citizenship!

Feel free to contact me for additional information and to talk me about your needs or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to working with you!

Francesca is a great tutor

I am taking Italian lessons with Francesca. She is a young dynamic girl and I enjoy my one-hour lesson with her. She makes me talk in Italian and teaches me while we have a conversation. I would highly recommend her to you.

Fifi, 5 lessons with Francesca

Knowledgeable

Helps me with Italian conversation and communicate better. Helps me with vocabularies. Also, can have conversations about some parts of Italy like Matera and talked about some history.

JoAnn , 4 lessons with Francesca

Very knowledgeable and articulate.

Very well organized and patient. Each lesson builds on the previous one as you learn a new language. She takes the time necessary to be able to learn at your own pace.

Patrick, 15 lessons with Francesca

Great Italian tutor

Excellente lezione. I learned so much. I look forward to having more lessons. Wonderful to speak Italian the entire time.

Sean, 4 lessons with Francesca

Francesca is a knowledgeable, kind and patient tutor.

I have enjoyed my first lessons with Francesca. I appreciate learning some verb conjugation, telling time, and helpful introductory conversation. The lesson format is useful and provides a good background to get started with the Italian language. The pace of instruction works well for me and Francesca adjusts to my level of learning.

Kay, 10 lessons with Francesca

Exceptional Tutor!

My wife and I so look forward to our weekly online Italian class with Francesca! She is very kind, patient and makes learning Italian fun. She is extremely organized and comes well prepared with bite-size lessons for the week. We are allowed to go at our own pace but Francesca makes sure that we are constantly building our vocabulary and conversational skills so that we’re always challenged and making progress in learning the language. Our goal is to become fluent in Italian and we are certain that Francesca will help us achieve this goal! Another asset in working with Francesca is that she is a native of Italy and shares her vast knowledge of her homeland, giving us valuable insights into Italian culture, dialects and traditions. We highly recommend Francesca!

Tough Tough Tough

It's been such a challenge learning a language in my 50's. Francesca is understanding and very positive. She's initially chose really tough work, but I see her helping me through, and she recognizes we need to back up a bit. I appreciate her keeping it just at a good challenge level for me.

Jennifer, 6 lessons with Francesca

Wonderful and patient

Francesca is incredibly patient and flexible with me. I get confused with my Spanish and English and she takes the time to explain. I also wanted to do more conversational Italian and she had no issue with my suggestion of a lesson plan. I intend to continue for a long while with her as my tutor.
