Ciao! I am Francesca, a native Italian speaker. I was born and raised in Italy and I live in Boston. 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!

Lessons are very useful and well prepared

I am taking beginner Italian with Francesca and she takes time to explain and give tips to aid in remembering how to use various vocabulary and points of grammar that is helping me understand the language.

Jennifer, 3 lessons with Francesca

Helpful and patient tutor

Francesca helped me with grammar structure and verb conjugation. She was patient and fun to work with. She explained to me what I was having trouble with in a clear and precise manner.

Laurie, 15 lessons with Francesca

Very friendly and helpful

Francesca is great! We've mostly been working on conversational fluency, which means talking about a lot of random topics, which could easily be awkward but has been quite enjoyable. She's very good about correcting errors without interrupting the flow of the conversation.

Natalie, 6 lessons with Francesca

Extremely patient and knowledgeable tutor

Francesca tailors every lesson to support my progress and always follows up afterwards with a detailed summary. She is able to explain not only the linguistic elements but cultural aspects of Italian. I am looking forward to testing my skills with a visit to Italy at some point!

Cathleen, 22 lessons with Francesca

Francesca is very knowledgeable and patient.

Francesca explains Italian clearly and she makes it easy to understand. She is very knowledgeable, calm, pleasant and patient to work with. When she explains the material to me, the next day my professor would come in class and explain it almost exactly the way she did, it's uncanny. I absolutely enjoy working with her. She's amazing! Thank you Wyzant!

Knowledgeable and Skilled Tutor

My mother, brother and I had our first lesson with Francesca and she was very knowledgeable and taught in a comprehensive manner. We enjoyed it very much. Can't wait for the next lesson.

Kaitlyn, 17 lessons with Francesca

Amazing!

Francesca helped me so much! I do not think I would have been able to succeed in Italian through college if she was not there to support me. Lovely personality too, 10/10.

Jacob, 9 lessons with Francesca

Great teacher

I couldn't evaluate my teacher at first because it was all so new, but now I have taken 8 classes with Francesca and can speak more from experience. She is as good a listener as she is teacher. When I have noted specific areas where I am not confident, she has responded with additional exercises in those areas and worked closely to address my concerns. We are moving at a good pace, which I appreciate and she is very open to ideas on what kind of learning works best for me. A very adaptable, patient and knowledgeable instructor.

Diane, 31 lessons with Francesca

Friendly, knowledgeable and flexible tutor.

Francesca is fun to work with - she is flexible and friendly, and teaches at the pace of my learning. She also gives insights on how phrases and words are used by native Italians.
