We are happy to put teacher Tutonlineit in the spotlight this week.
My name is Marged, I’m 31 years old and I was born in northern Italy, in a town near Venice. I’ve been fond of sounds and languages from my childhood, also because many members of my family have been working in the field of foreign languages, moreover, I’m bilingual, since I’m a half Welsh.
I also have a passion for music, namely I’m a singer. Another interest I’ve been showing from an early age is teaching. I’ve started teaching instinctively, since I love sharing my knowledge, and I had noticed people enjoyed learning from me.
That’s how I started teaching languages, firstly Latin and English and later also Hindi and Italian as a foreign language, privately. I was not satisfied with the traditional language teaching method because learning and speaking a language, to me, meant communicating with others and also imitating and producing new sounds. I liked the challenge of grammar, but I thought it was pretty useless without applying it in everyday situations.
I graduated in Hindi at the University of Venice with a dissertation on Indian classical music and even during my studies, I was always asked to help other students learning the language. Meanwhile, I attended a few courses in foreign languages education as well and so I got fascinated by the latest trends in language teaching. I have worked a lot with children too, also because I was interested in knowing more about their learning process. I noticed they can grasp a new language quickly because they just try to use it right away. They instinctively know that only by using a language you can learn easily.
More recently, I’ve started working as an online tutor and I have noticed the internet works pretty well in foreign language education for many reasons. One of these is certainly that people are more focused on the listening comparing to a live face to face situation. When I came to Myngle I instantly liked its conception of teaching languages and sharing knowledge, and, of course, its friendly look, that’s why I’m very happy to be a part of it and I’m eager to make my teaching experience available to anyone who’s interested in learning Italian, Hindi or English on Myngle!
Please have a look at my profile and of course you are welcome to book a lesson with me:
