Sydney tutor in Italian

(10 student reviews)

My name is Caterina, I am a native Italian tutor and a LOTE assistant at Loreto High School.

I am extremely passionate about teaching and I love to help people learning about my beautiful language and culture. I am a very patient person, experienced and knowledgeable.

I have studied diction and acting so my Italian is pure, with no regional accents. I always do my best to meet all the needs of the students and I try to create to most comfortable and friendly, yet professional environment during my lessons.

I offer Italian lessons from beginners up to the academic level and I also provide an effective help in translations, writing business letters or email, creating texts and so on. If you are a Year 11/Year 12 student I can help you in successfully improving your marks and getting ready for your Yearly Exams or HSC.

About my method: my lessons are completely tailored on my students, as well as my method. Usually I propose a test during the first lesson that allow me to understand what is the student's level and what they need to achieve their goals.

I use my own material and I don't ask to buy any particular textbook since I provide everything we need for the lesson.

I offer one-on-one lessons but I am available for small groups too (2-3 people). Lessons occur in Manly 2095, Monday to Friday.

Rates are listed below :

Single individuals - 60$ one hour
Groups - 45$ per hour/per person
Online Help - 50$ per hour for a Skype lesson, prices are negotiable for other tasks.

Further discounts are available if you book a package of 5, 10 or 20 hours in advance (conditions apply).

I look forward to hearing from you!!

A presto!

Italian (Introduction, Intermediate, Advanced)

"I've been studying with Caterina for over 4 months now, and my Italian has improved immensely. She's very professional, organised, engaging and friendly, and our lessons are always a lot of fun. I love when she shares stories of her life in Italy, and the Italian way of doing/saying things. Not only do I get a language lesson, but I also get a cultural lesson which I feel is very important. We switch between grammar, dialogue, writing and reading, which keeps the lessons interesting. I would highly recommend Caterina to anybody!"
