About Me

Salve,
Italian native speaker, university lecturer, with PhD and degree in literature, gives lessons of Italian language and culture. I am a visiting scholar and an accredited lecturer available for individuals or groups at my place (Rostrevor), or in Magill university library. I have also a number of students with whom I work via Skype. My method consists of 12 units lessons (that correspond to a uni semester), in which I focus, in-depth, on both Italian grammar and the more practical sentences of daily repertoire, so that students will start speaking Italian efficiently and soon. I will also employ video-audio supports and other didactic material in order to improve the students's listening and understanding skills. My students are usually all able to start speaking Italian in three months. Due to the selected units and material I propose (with one of the best books in circulation), we will be able to deal with the lingua italiana in a funny, informal and very professional mode. We can learn grammar, places, foods, culture, history. Both children and adults are welcome, since all levels of difficulty will be covered according to the individuals, with my easy and clear method of apprehension. I will provide all the material, exercises and homework (for the most motivate ones). Very affordable rates (40 aud per hour). Couples can pay 50 per hour. About Me: Phd in sociology and anthropology, ethnomusicology, and university degree in Italian literature and philosophy at the University of Rome. My passion for language and my adaptive teaching approach enable me to interact and please students at all levels. My aim is to make learning satisfying and enjoyable. Arrivederci, a presto!

Simone Marino has been tutoring me for 8 months now. In the past, I had also learnt Spanish & French for many years from various teachers. However, no other language teacher compares to Simone! He is by far, the best language teacher I have ever come across. His lessons are comprehensive, well structured, and fun. After every lesson, Simone follows up with an email providing you with exercises & grammar documents to reinforce what you have learnt with him. Simone tailors the work to suit you and your learning requirements, style and pace. Simone is professional, reliable, courteous, patient and encouraging.

Simone was enormously helpful in my preparation for both Continuers and Extension and I felt that both my Italian and confidence improved greatly! The online tuition using Skype made it a lot easier and more convenient, especially as Simone was always happy to be flexible with times. Having a native Italian speaker tutoring me was invaluable as I learnt a lot that my class teacher would probably not have known. Without Simone I would certainly not have been up to the challenge of the Extension monologue!

I spent 3 months learning Italian with Simone prior to moving to Italy. I did attend many other Italian classes at various language institutions before but was never 100% satisfied. I am amazed how much my Italian ability was able to excel in a very short period of time under Simone's guidance. For the very first time, I actually felt confident that I have finally acquired a very solid foundation in the Italian language. I would recommend Simone to anyone who is serious about learning Italian.
