About me

Hello, my name is Laura and I'm an Italian teacher. I received a Master degree in italian language and literature at University of Padova and CEDILS certification at University of Venice. It is a qualification that enables me to teach Italian as a second language.

I have thought for many years Italian in secondary schools and I have experience of teaching to groups of foreign students (both teenagers and adults). Through all these activities I have organized the course material that includes various topics and is divided into different levels of difficulty.


My lessons are structured according to language proficiency levels set by the European framework and adapt to the needs of my students and to their way of learning: "If I do not learn the way you teach me, teach me the way I learn.".

The first trial lesson is specifically intended to understand the knowledge level of Italian and the needs of students in order to prepare an effective program. Usually during lessons my students practice understanding, speaking, reading, writing and reflect on grammar rules with the right balance between practice and theory.

They also discover connections between language and culture through a combination of education and fun.

Testimonials from my students

I will say this in English, for the benefit of any other students reading. Laura is an excellent teacher. Not only friendly, professional, open but always thinking about the right learning path for the individual student. I have been studying with Laura for more than one year, and my Italian has improved enormously, but even then she has identified a new approach to improve in another area. And she always checks and re-checks that the approach is working for me. You won't find many better teachers. Grazie mille, Laura!

Laura is a wonderful teacher. Completely prepared and willing to take the class in any direction. She is patient and understands the level of conversation required. She is open to flexible lesson plans to deal with what ever I am confused or struggling with. I am so grateful for her patience and kindness and her professionalism.

I definitely have to say that this lesson with Laura has been wonderful. Just after 20 lessons I have got a good understanding of the subjunctive, and this would've been imposible without Laura's efforts to make me comprehend the grammar in a fun and easy way. Also, I really like our conversations during the speaking part; time flies with Laura while talking about really interesting things (she's really well educated and can speak about very different things related with all the Italian culture, traveling, society, politics, literature, history...). I am a Spanish teacher, and from the first moment I knew Laura is well prepared and enjoys teaching her native language. If I were a student looking for a great teacher, I would definitely give Laura the chance to help me learn this beautiful language. I hated Italian for while after having a terrible Professor at the University, but Laura made me like this language again. That is one of the best things a student can say about a teacher!!!

Fantastic! Working with Laura was great--she is kind, patient and attentive. She did a wonderful assessment of my current level and asked a lot of questions to ensure she was providing a helpful lesson. I look forward to working with her more!'
