Miss Maria Caterina Conte

 Sydney - Manly

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!

Caterina

"My husband and I learned in private lessons with Caterina. She was always prepared for us with something new and taught in a variety of ways so that we could read, speak and write. As older students busy with many other things I am sure we learned very very slowly and forgot a great deal but she was always so patient and lovely to deal with. She is very positive also, giving praise when she sees progress. We would love to have continued with her and regretted that she moved out of our area. The Northern Beaches are very lucky to have her and we thoroughly recommend her as an Italian teacher"
