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!

I have had many Italian teachers privately and in group courses but it wasn’t until I met Filippo that I found a great one. Filippo always shows up on time, never cancels and has a professional work environment. He took the time to understand my objectives and preferred learning style and has delivered. I’ve had teachers who have agreed to use a text book (my preference) but after a few lessons, we get distracted by random exercises on the internet, discussions about current events or analysing song lyrics. I don’t mind any of these things as part of conversation classes, but we must always get back to core lessons. Filippo has proven to be an absolute gem of a teacher. He is patient and kind, and very encouraging. He doesn’t only correct my errors, he commends when I self-correct, which I find I am doing more and more since learning with him. We are working diligently through the text book and he assigns plenty of homework (also my preference).
