About Me
italki teacher since Dec 22, 2021
My name’s Filippo. I’m a native speaker of Italian and live in Rome. I hold the DITALS I certificate, i.e., the license for the Teaching of Italian as a Foreign Language issued by the University for Foreigners of Siena. I can also speak English and am very fond of British English phonology. I have two degrees, one in philosophy and the other in religious studies, and taught in secondary schools in Rome for 21 years. I mainly speak standard Italian or, as linguists would say, “Tuscan Italian as spoken by Roman citizens”, i.e., the Italian language as historically spoken in Florence, without its peculiar local features.

5 stars. Exactly the kind of teacher I’ve been looking for. Non judgmental. Supportive. Great relaxed but effective teaching style. Great to have this caliber teacher in this teaching format. Thanks Filippo!

Filippo is an excellent teacher and is also a joy to talk to! He is very good at catching when you make small mistakes (or big ones) and then explaining not only what the mistake is, but gently clarifying the reason why it's a mistake in a way that is clear and memorable. He is an incredible font of linguistic knowledge and his years of teaching mean he also has a ton of resources to help you if you have specific goals (like doing an exam). I recommend him very highly! Filippo è un ottimo insegnante, ed è anche solo una gioia parlare con lui! È molto bravo a cogliere quando commetti piccoli errori (o grandi) e poi spiega non solo qual è l'errore, ma chiarisce perché è un errore in un modo chiaro e memorabile. È un'incredibile fonte di conoscenza linguistica e i suoi anni di insegnamento significano che ha anche un sacco di risorse per aiutarti a insegnarti se hai obiettivi specifici (come fare un esame). Lo consiglio vivamente!
