Instructor Biography

Claudia Scaringi, Language tutor

My name is Claudia and I have always been interested in learning languages and in travels. My aim is to transpose my passion for languages into an effective and tangible help for people who want to learn Italian, which is my mother tongue.

I have been teaching Italian for several months through YouTube and Skype and I have also taught Italian in a voluntary association who helps immigrants to integrate into society. I've taught all levels from beginners to advanced, to students of all ages and I've had several private lessons so I have plenty of experience in one-to-one tutoring as well. I currently teach Italian both online and in person and have helped people improve their Italian skills

Instructor Biography

Gloria Manenti, Language tutor

I teach Italian privately to both students and professionals online.

I'm able to help them overcoming the challenges they face learning a new language thanks to my studies in the field of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, combined with the daily practice of English language due to my travels.

I've had the pleasure to assist qualified teachers and teach Italian to foreigners for several years in a voluntary association in Milan, helping people preparing for exams to certify their level of Italian and I've been involved in activities with foreigners for more than 7 years now.

. I've always loved the process of learning new languages and I want to share my passion for the Italian language with learners from all over the world.

I've travelled abroad to many countries, including some English speaking countries such as England, Ireland, Canada and the U.S, where I attended classes in English when I was younger.

Alongside my main passion, traveling, I love discovering different cultures, exchanging ideas, reading and engaging in sarcastic conversations.
