Personalised coaching, speedy learning.

Dr Alessandra Murgia MCIL has built a reputation for highly effective private tuition from over 15 years in the region.

Private tuition enables:

  • Personalised 1-1  tuition

  • Guaranteed slot each week

  • Flexibility to learn at times that suit you

  • Learning at your best pace

  • Learning tailored to meet your needs –whether this is for leisure, work or just for fun.

How much is private tuition?

Private tuition starts at £35 per hour and rates vary depending upon number of people present in one session (maximum 2:1).

What is a typical session like?

A typical session explores all the facets of good language learning with the emphasis on speaking and listening and grammatical structures. The hour is planned in advance entirely for you and normally features listening exercises from real life situations, topic discussions and plenty of opportunities to practise your pronouncing with a native speaker in a relaxed environment!   Sessions are interactive, often including multi-media and all convey a passion and enthusiasm for learning the language and about Italian culture. Oh, and there is normally some homework (compiti)…just to speed your Italian along at home.

Where are the sessions held?

Private tuition is held in a dedicated and comfortable language studio in Alba House, based in Watchfield, in Oxfordshire. The studio has ample space for one to one tuition and can comfortably accommodate two learners plus tutor. Within the studio is an extensive Italian book /CD and DVD library. The studio includes listening facilities and whiteboard for spelling and writing exercises.

How many sessions do I book?

Spaces are extremely popular, so Alessandra’s clients normally like to block book four to six sessions in advance. Sessions can be during the day, Monday to Friday.

What level do I have to be?

Alessandra’s clients are at all levels. Some complete beginners – others advanced and have been studying with her for many years!
