About Alessandra

Hi!My name's Alessandra, and I'm a FREE LANCE TUTOR AND TRANSLATOR SINCE 2008.I have been studying languages both at the college and at University. I graduated in Milan in Languages and Communication in 2005 at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (110/110 top of my year). My thesis was in French literature, about Zola’s novel “La curée”.AND I'VE BEEN TEACHING SINCE THEN BOTH ONLINE AND OFFLINE. I've been working as well as a translator both in a firm and privately. I lived 2 years in the UK where I worked as a private tutor teaching adults both French and Italian. They loved our lessons, so we’ve been continuing them online though Skype and Msn since I moved back to Italy.I'm now a registered teacher, translator and interpeter. I'm also teaching in person at the Oxford School in the nearby city.

My students are coming from different countries around the world, and their age range from 6 to 82. I teach beginners as well as advanced students. It has been a great experience of life leaving in another country, working there and meeting new friends. I love learning new things, speaking with people and I’m easy going and cheerful. Before moving to the UK, I also taught a little group of students from college English and French literature, helping them improving their results at schools. We’ll obtain very good results for sure, just contact me!

My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Anne
Family of 4 learns Italian together We are a family of 4 from California, two adults and two kids, age 10 and 8. We had about 5 months of 1 hour per week lessons before a trip to Italy in October 2013. Ale was somehow able to have a class for a family of 4 with radically different language learning abilities! During our trip, we felt we could understand the language enough to navigate most interactions with Italian speaking natives, as well as get all around Italy by car without trouble. We shopped for groceries, asked about restaurants, ordered food, figured out directions all in broken Italian. Our host at one agriturismo, who only spoke Italian, was totally impressed with the kids' ability to sing Italian children's songs without a noticeable accent! We were able to visit Ale in her darling town of Esino Lario; I totally recommend it if you want off-the-beaten path Italy. We couldn't fit in Ale's flat, but we stayed in the flat of a friend that was perfect. We had two lessons with Ale while we were there which was fun, but what I would REALLY recommend is to take time for intensive language training with Ale when you are there. We will do that next time. We are continuing with lessons with Ale after our trip, and now we are actually more motivated to learn and are making great strides. Ale is professional, funny, prompt, kind, and really good at what she does. I recommend her heartily. Anne, Tom, Maggie, Dominic

Amazing tutor and instructor I wanted to learn the Italian language for a long time I was looking for a tutor and I found this website. I never thaugt that teaching via skype but it worked out perfectly. My brothers and I took almost a month with Alessandra me and my two younger brothers we are taking 4 hours per week. My grandmother is Italian and my father speaks the language and they have seen a great progress from this month. I am so glad and so excited to continue with this program. I really recommend Ale for all of you boys or girls and of different ages . Mariya

Ale is very effective and it is great fun to learn with her. My husband and I are making much better progress with her than we were on our own. We are learning Italian with Ale and we highly recommend her. Jayne and Mike

I have been learning italian with Ale for 10 months now. I have found our lessons enjoyable and informative. Ale is very friendly, professional, patient and approachable. I was lucky enough to stay in Ale's apartment for 3 weeks in August this year. Every day I had between 3 to 5 hours of lessons and made great progress during this time. It was also lovely to meet Ale's welcoming family. Esino Lario is a beautiful little village, high in the hills above Il Lago di Como, 12 kms from Varenna. This is a non tourist village with friendly people, beautiful old cobblestone streets and stone houses, great walks and excellent bike riding on the roads and mountains around Il Lago di Como. It has a great market on Tuesday mornings so you can buy delicious Italian fresh produce. It was a great experience to be able to immerse myself in italian culture, language and food for 3 weeks and connect with my italian heritage. My husband rode his bike every day, so he was also happy!!
