Hello everybody! I am Nicole and I'm a native Italian speaker and an experienced online Italian teacher based in Milan, Italy.
I have been teaching Italian online for 4 years and I have helped over 300 students with their Italian! I have recently took on teaching on Verbling and I am so excited to meet you and help you reach proficiency in Italian!
Besides being a native Italian speaker I also speak English, Spanish and German fluently. I also obtained a TEFL certificate to teach English professionally, which means we will be 100% able to understand each other in this language if you're a beginner in Italian.
My main area of expertise is conversational Italian and speaking practice, but I would also be more than happy to help clarify any grammar topic you're tackling.
During class we might also use material such as videos or newspaper articles in order to stimulate a natural conversation. Please, let me know in advance if you want to discuss a particular topic or you have your own materials you would like to use in class.
What do my previous students say about me:
★ "Well prepared and very supportive as always :) Thank you for another awesome lesson. I feel 10x more confident in speaking Italian thanks to you." -O. from Philippines.
★ "Enjoyed the lesson:) She immediately taught me the right expressions to use when I stammered! I'm planning to continue taking lessons in order to reach my goal." -A. from Taiwan.
★ "Nicole is very patient with people who aren't comfortable with speaking Italian yet, which is important. She also really challenges her students to get them to start thinking in Italian through conversation, which is very helpful for anyone who wishes to learn Italian conversationally." -D. from United States.
No-show policy: I will wait for you for 15 minutes, if you don't show up without giving further notice I will consider the lesson completed. Thank you for understanding! :)
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU! CI VEDIAMO PRESTO!
I have been teaching Italian for more than one year on an international language learning platform called Italki. I’ve had the chance to tailor different types of language classes for each of my students’ needs, from conversational classes to general Italian and exam preparation classes.
