Italian Teachers

Giulia Iani

I am a native Italian speaker, also fluent in English and Spanish. I was always passionate about languages, and took a Master’s Degree in Modern Languages in Italy and then decided to move to the UK where I have taught Italian for adults at Portsmouth College and offered Italian and Spanish private tuition. I studied for the PTTLS qualification during this time. After a break to look after her children I am now enjoying teaching at Language Class.

Laura Racioppi

I am a native Italian Teacher with a MA in Teaching Italian as a second language, and extensive experience in teaching students of all ages, from Primary school to University. I combine comprehensive grammatical structures with interactive activities. I also try to minimize English speaking during the lessons. I give homework exercises, and my lessons are intermixed with grammar, conversation, customs and traditions. My goal is to make certain that each student finds learning Italian exciting!
