I base my classes on student's needs. I usually start my lesson from a topic-based approach, according to the student's vocabulary level. I use audios, reading texts, pictures, power point presentations and games. My classes are adressed to all levels and I offer in-depth knowledge on literature and art.

Rossella is an excellent teacher. She explains everything in a way that is simple to understand and responds very well to the wishes and requirements of her students. She is patient and the lessons are a lot of fun because they are well prepared and informative. I highly recommend taking lessons with Rossella, as you will be in good hands with her.
My name is Silvia, I have been a teacher for many years.
I met Rossella Sargenti while learning Italian in Florence.
One year ago I started taking private online lessons with her and can't imagine learning Italian with anyone else! She is dedicated, patient, fun, extremely knowledgeable and above all, very kind.
Every time I have a question or make a mistake, either during a grammar lesson or and oral exercise, Rossella gives me a thorough explanation. Thanks to her my level of Italian and above all, my confidence speaking the language, has dramatically improved.
I cannot thank her enough, it is a pleasure learning from such an incredible teacher, I am very fortunate to have met her and to continue learning with her.
The best way to learn/practice Italian virtually! I first met Rossella through a friend who had taken her classes in person in Florence. I had lived in Florence for a few months in 2015 and I recently wanted to take classes again to keep practicing my Italian.
I reached out to Rossella and she was super open and flexible to build a teaching plan and a schedule that worked for me. I prefer a conversational learning style and love Italian history/culture so our courses consisted of the study of Dante Alighieri's "Inferno" and it's history. We would also chat before and after the course to practice conversation. Not only was this a great way to polish my Italian, it was interesting content delivered in a creative and fun way. I always looked forward to the class, it did not seem like coursework rather it was like talking to a friend who was explaining a rich part of Italian culture.
Highly recommend Rossella for any level of Italian!
