About Francesca

Ciao! I'm Francesca and I come from Florence (Italy). I love languages since I was a kid because my dream was to travel and being able to communicate with people wherever I wanted to go. I was born and raised in Florence, I studied and worked in Paris (France) and I now live in Silver Spring, MD. I currently teach Italian to children and adults at a private school in DC. I was a French tutor in Italy.

I use books and workbook but I love to enrich my lessons with test, games, role plays, videos and insights on Italian culture, territory and people. I have fun and I have the feeling I pass my enthusiasm on students. Some examples of what we can do:
- Individual private lessons at any level
- Group lessons (same level of proficiency)
- Conversational sessions
- Italian/French on vacation (how to survive in Italy/France! On demand I can help arranging the trip)
- Italian through food (cooking lessons and conversation)

Lessons can take place at my home, your place or in public places. A class may be rescheduled without penalty if a request is made at least 36 hours in advance.

The schedule availability that you see on wyzant is for in-person lessons. Online lessons are more flexible and can arrange a different schedule.

If you either want to learn Italian/French or refresh your previous knowledge, please contact me and ask as many questions as you want. I will be happy to give you further information! A presto!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

In 1999 I obtained a Diploma in foreign languages with honors. In 2001 I did part of my graduate studies (6 months) at the University of Paris 1 - La Sorbonne. I attended a French and Civilisation class there where I scored 18/20. In 2006/2007 I worked at UNESCO in Paris, and in 2007 I did private tutoring for high school students.

Italian

I'm Italian and Italian is my mother tongue. In 1999 I obtained a Diploma in Foreign Languages, and I know what it means learning a second/third language. I have a master's degree in Political Science - International Relations obtained in Italy. In May 2014 I started teaching Italian in US.
Since November, I have been teaching Italian to children and adults at a private school in DC.

Great tutor! — Francesca is knowledgeable, engaging and resourceful. She connected with our teenage son, managed to assess the gaps in his knowledge and engaged him in developing a study plan in just two sessions! We feel very lucky to have found her and highly recommend her. ...
