I would highly recommend Gabriele – he is very patient and jovial, and happy to adapt his lessons to his students’ requirements and pace. He also discusses Italian culture and history in addition to teaching the language and grammar. He’s a great teacher!

Gabriele has been teaching my two children for several years now (currently aged 13 and 10). He is an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him. He visits our house, and adapts his lessons to the needs of each child. He is especially flexible when they are tired or distracted. 

Gabriele frequently revisits topics and consolidates their learning, and I have seen a huge improvement in their understanding and in their confidence.

Gabriele is always friendly and extremely professional and is excellent at putting you at ease. We would hate to lose him as our tutor.

If you have ever wanted to learn a new language, (and what better language is there to learn?), then I wholeheartedly recommend Gabriele to you.

I had lessons with Gabrielle over several months. He was always   reliable and enthusiastic, so that I learned a lot and had fun at the same time

Gabriele has taught me for a year now and has adapted his teaching to suit my needs. He has encouraged and given me confidence in reading, writing and speaking Italian which has been a great help on my visits to Italy.

I highly recommend him and can’t thank him enough!

Grazie mille!

I have had a number of lessons with Gabrielle and must highly recommend him as a teacher. My conversational lessons are always enjoyable, largely due to his flexible and friendly style of teaching. His approach is very professional, adapting his lessons to the needs of the student, adjusting his feedback to suit the confidence or otherwise of the student.

The subjects of the conversations are wide-ranging, reflecting my interests and any trips to Italy that might be forthcoming. He is, rightly, proud of his heritage in Bologna and this shows in his enthusiasm for teaching his students, not just the language but also the culture and history of the region.

I have been on a break from lessons for a few months due to travel and other commitments but am now very much looking forward to restarting which should be recommendation enough!

A presto
Gaz

Gabriele has helped me improve my business Italian immeasurably over the last several months. He is thorough, professional, encouraging and really wants to help his students reach their goals. I would recommend him to anyone wishing to better their Italian.

Gabriele Galli helped my daughter  prepare for her successful Oxbridge interview in Modern Foreign Languages last year. His teaching was well-informed and of a very advanced level.

I would thoroughly recommend him as a tutor.

Gabriele tutored my daughter for her Italian GCSE – i could not have been more grateful to have found Gabriele!  He came up with a clear plan from the very start, and relentlessly worked with my daughter to ensure she could aspire to the highest score (and she got full marks!). He has been really flexible to fit the tutoring within my daughter’s busy schedule and has been incredibly encouraging with her, building her confidence and providing practical tips that saved her lots of preparation time.

Thank you, Gabriele

I have been a student of Gabriele for a year now and will continue to do so.
My daughter in law and her family are Italian , so my lessons take on an important role as well as for when we go on holiday.
In fact they congratulate me on my Italian and that is down to Gabriele.
Grazie mille.

Gabriele has been my Italian teacher for 2 or 3 years now, with occasional breaks due to changes of circumstance. I always enjoy the lessons which are not only informative on the language but also a wide variety of subjects which we explore as we chat through the lesson. He is very good at making the discussion relevant and orients the lessons to my particular interests or current events.

I would really recommend Gabriele as an Italian teacher to anyone who is trying to learn. I have tried online lessons but having a REAL teacher not only explains the language much more clearly but also makes it much more fun!

Thanks Gabriele.

I really wanted you to know how much I am enjoying studying with Gabriele. I am not just learning (?!) Italian, but also Italian history, culture, recipes and so much more. The week before last I asked Gabriele how the Italian language evolved (we were discussing something else at the time), and the conversation turned to Dante. Last week he brought in a book for me concerning the evolution of the Italian language and the works of Dante. I have photocopied the relevant pages (he did try, but the copier was not working), and we are going to use this text for our future conversations. I have, of course, heard of Dante but have never read his works, so I am really looking forward to studying this.

What I just want to say, is that my Thursday lesson is so much more than learning Italian. It is so interesting and I am enjoying learning immensely. Gabriele talks to me in Italian and I do understand him, although I do have still have difficulty understanding everything when Flavia and her family talk at speed. My conversation is still very slow and laboured, but I shall keep trying.

I think that Gabriele is an excellent teacher and I am so lucky to have found him. He has really tried to understand me as a person, and to make the lessons as interesting as he can. Also, he is educating me in so many other ways

I always look forward to my Italian lessons with Gabriele very much indeed. His friendly manner and good sense of humour put me at my ease, and there is always so much to discuss. He has a thorough understanding of Italian and English grammar and, more importantly, the skills to explain and teach, which is not true of all native speakers.

He is interested in his students and tailors each lesson to their individual needs and interests. His warm personality and professional intelligent approach make his lessons a most rewarding and enjoyable experience.

After having completed a 24 hour Italian course with Gabriele, I could only highly recommend him as an enthusiastic and engaging teacher for all levels. Upon starting the course, I had an upper-beginner level and was not at all confident in spoken or written Italian. Now I have completed my hourly sessions of conversational Italian, my level of spoken and written Italian has improved so much and I am so happy with everything I have learnt and achieved.

Gabriele’s classes are interesting and comfortable as he asked me specifically at the beginning of the course of all my interests and hobbies and how I wanted to learn Italian. When I told him that I needed to improve fluidity of speech and that I could study the grammar at home, he searched for topics that would suit my level and which interested me so we could chat for an hour about them. I found over a few weeks that I could understand and respond much better than at the beginning through thorough teaching and explanation as well as an impeccable knowledge of both English and Italian that Gabriele possesses.

Overall, I had a very positive experience and apart from the extreme satisfaction of the fact that my Italian is now at an intermediate level and I can use it professionally, just getting to know Gabriele and chat with him in an informal but scholastic way was a lot of fun indeed. Not only will I miss my classes, I will actively seek to keep learning and I will definitely think about continuing the course further.

Gabriele has taught our 17 year old daughter Italian to GCSE over the last two years. She had no previous experience of the language. (We had a couple of Italian au pairs, and she loves the country and the Italian language).

Gabriele is an enthusiastic native speaker and clearly enjoyed teaching our daughter. He prepared the lessons well and provided homework where appropriate. He liaised with the school regarding the exams. Our daughter, in turn, is highly motivated to learn and has gained confidence and skill from the one-to-one arrangement. Most of all she has enjoyed the experience.

We have had a regular term-time slot of either 1.5 or 2 hours on a Saturday, at our home, but timings have been flexible both ways.

I consider we were fortunate to find Gabriele, and would highly recommend him.
