I am a qualified and experienced Italian Teacher for Foreigners, who has been teaching Italian as second language in Rome and in London for 3 years. I have been teaching a range of classes including Italian language for Arts, Business Italian, Culture and Italian language classes to adult groups and individuals in several Italian Schools in Rome and Embassies.
I provide One - on - One lessons to adult and children, Italian lessons worldwide by Skype and Corporate classes.
In 2008 I achieved Level II Ditals Certification for teaching Italian as Second Language (L2) at University for Foreigners of Siena, after my Teacher Training at Leonardo Da Vinci Italian School in Rome; and since December 2009 I have been a member of the Italian Teachers for Foreigners Professional Association (APIDIS).
My work is based on the passion and the love for my culture and my language. My classes are carried out in a communicative style which is based on the communicative and humanistic-affective approach.
In my classes, students actively practice the four fundamental functions of language: listening, speaking, reading and writing. However, I give particular attention to conversation, to develop the student’s capacity to express himself or herself and communicate in Italian from the very beginning of the course. To engage all learners I use a variety of learning techniques and strategies, using sometimes games, involving all students and creating a friendly and nice atmosphere that inspires enthusiasm and happyness in the learning process.
Naturally, this method includes the study of the rules of Italian syntax and grammar, which are essential to learning a foreign language, but which, alone, are not sufficient for gaining a real command of the Italian language.
So, if you don't have time to go to School I can get you at your Home!
If you work hard but you need Italian for your job or business, I can get you at your Workplace!
