I have a M.A. DITALS (pedagogy of Italian as a foreign language) from the Università per stranieri di Siena.
I have taught Italian at all levels in England, France, Italy and the U.S.A. over the past 8 years and I have taught online for the past 3, specializing in a LANCELOT course (Language Learning with Certified Online Teacher). My Master’s thesis was actually on the online teaching of Italian as a foreign language.
My way of teaching is fun and active, just like my personality. After meeting you for the first time I will set a specific learning path for you to reach your goals. This can be specific, specializing in one or two particular skills, such as speaking and listening, or in all the basic ones, such as speaking, listening, writing and reading. We can also work on integrated skills according to your need and level, such as translating, typing under dictation and so on. There are many of these integrated skills and I will recommend the ones you may need to achieve your learning goal.
I have helped numerous students to master the Italian language according to their need, however, along with the language you will also learn a lot about Italian culture and traditions. A language is a means of expressing a culture, so you will discover a new world and above all find that learning Italian with me is very fun!
Last but not least I'm very flexible for timing, so it is always worth to have a look to my current timetable and write an email with requests.
Do not wait a moment longer to start learning.
