Information about Laura
I am a qualified Italian native teacher.
I hold a post graduate qualification for teaching modern languages to adults (CELTA), from Goldsmith University in London.
I have been teaching Italian for over 20 years .I taught at University, at the Foreign Office, International House.I am still currently teaching at City Lit, Bishopsgate and Morley college.
I love teaching my language, and I do so by using modern teaching techniques in a friendly, fun and efficient way. I tailor my lessons to meet the needs of my students, whether my students are learning Italian for leisure, business, or academic reasons.I am patient and enthusiastic, well organised and I always bring variety to my lessons by using different teaching methods in order to keep my students active and motivated.
I also prepare for exams, including Cils B1 for the Italian citizenship.
I teach face-to-face and online.
I am based in Tottenham court road/Oxford street. ( 5 mins walk from Tottenham court road station).
Please arrange a FREE TEST LESSON UP TO 1 HOUR and you are not under any obligation to continue with the lessons.
I had started learning Italian in group lessons but found them limiting so I decided to try one-to-one lessons with Laura, it was the right decision. My lessons with Laura allow me to choose the subjects and areas that I want to work on and at the pace that suits me. If I am struggling with a certain area of grammar then we spend more time on it and my progress has been much faster since starting the lessons. Laura is professional, patient and provides imaginative ways of learning Italian. I would highly recommend her for those that want a personal experience of learning Italian.
Laura has been my Italian teacher for 4 years and coached me through my A level. She is a natural teacher - very patient, explains points of grammar clearly and makes lessons engaging and fun. I would happily recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their Italian, whether it`s just to brush up their conversational skills, perfect their written skills or revise for an exam.
I confirm that I have been having Italian lessons with Laura for the last seven years, and she has become a friend as well my teacher. I always enjoy my lessons, in addition to learning grammar, we discuss a wide range of subjects, always interesting. I recommend her to anyone wishing to learn this wonderful language.
Laura taught me Italian this year at the Bishopsgate Institute. As an ";eternal student";, I have had a lifetime of teachers, and for me Laura stands out because of her ability, diligence, and sparkle.
Anyone who has the chance to hire her should jump at the opportunity.

To whom it may concern: ! I have been studying with Laura since September 2014. ! It is with enthusiasm that I write to say that Ms. is a very engaging and inspiring teacher. She brings the Italian language to life with her warmth, humor and expert teaching manner. She is also very patient and cheerful with those of us in the class who love to ask questions. !! Personally I am grateful to Ms. for encouraging me to join the intermediate class when I lacked the confidence. I am very glad I did because I have fared well and am enjoying the challenge. ! I heartily recommend Laura .
Sincerely yours,! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Arpi SAHR
