Would you like to learn Italian or improve your current level?


I’m Kate, from Petersfield, Hampshire, UK.  

My teaching method is based on 15 years of experience working with individual students to find the approach that gets the best results.


Classes are dynamic and responsive, with a focus on expression and promoting a deep understanding of your new language.


Although lessons often feel fun and informal, you will progress very quickly, with a tailored programme designed to suit your learning style!

We offer private and group lessons for learners at all levels, in person (when possible) and via Zoom.

One-to-one tuition is a great option to progress quickly with your Italian!

Learn at your own pace and build fluency with tailored lessons from your own personal tutor.


Lessons are suitable for beginners, GCSE and A-level, degree-level and adult learners.

If you prefer to learn with others, you can choose a group programme to help you take the next step with Italian.

Our courses are designed for small groups of up to 5 participants to ensure a fun and productive learning environment for everyone.
