My courses are structured around the specific needs of the students. I am very creative and flexible and after a first exploratory meeting I have always been able to prepare courses targeting very specific individual requirements. Thanks to my classical education I can, if desired, guite the students towards a hight level mastery of the vocabulary based on an understanding of the Greek and Latin roots of the Italian language. I offer useful comparisons between the Italian grammar and the grammar of other languages in which I'm proficient such as English, French and Spanish. My knowledge of Italian cinema and literature allows me to suggest movies and readings to integrate the teaching.
Michele Davide is one of our best teachers. A high quality profile, verified qualifications, quick response rate and loved by students!
I am a doctoral researcher in analytic philosophy at the University of Geneva, where I also obtained my MA. Before pursuing my studies in Geneva, I obtained a BA in Letters and Philosophy at the University of Turin and a classical maturity (Liceo Classico) in Parma. I am very passionate about language, grammar and teaching at all levels. I have +10 years of experience in teaching Italian at all levels.

Perfect! Michele est un prof très appliqué, calme, à l’écoute. Excellent niveau de conversation. Super contact avec mon fils de 9 ans. Je le recommande
Alessio est un élève motivé, curieux, intuitif et très passionné par l'apprentissage. C'est un veritable plaisir de lui donner des cours d'Italien.
Perfect! Sérieux, engagé et professionnel ! Mon fils a du plaisir à suivre les cours de Michele Davide.
J'ai été contacté par Marie-Jeanne pour donner des cours d'italien de niveau scolaire à son fils de 15 ans. Les interactions avec Marie-Jeanne ont été impeccables et l'élève s'est démontré sérieux, motivé et très passionné par l'apprentissage.
Connaissant Michele depuis longtemps, je peux attester de sa capacité à transmettre son savoir et à aider les élèves a bien comprendre un sujet.
Son expérience académique et universitaire lui offre tous les outils nécessaires à accompagner des étudiants de manière personnalisée et adaptée à chacun
I studied a little Italian at school but I lost a lot of it since then. Michele really helped me not just to regain my former level of Italian but to improve on it, and also to improve my confidence in conversation. He's also friendly and thoughtful, and very easy to talk to, whilst at the same time being very very smart.
Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am rapidly improving my italian with his methodology. He is also quite adaptable to my schedule, which is really appreciated. Grazie mille
Michele is a great teacher for many reasons, but mainly because he has a special ability to pinpoint what you need to improve and helps you do it in an effective way. He is super well organised and and he always brings interesting material to the classes. I am super happy with my teacher and I highly recommend it!
