I have a true passion for teaching and strive to pass that passion on to my students.
I'm a certified teacher with :
Master Degree in teaching skills
International House teaching quality certificate
DItals Certificate on Teaching Method Capability for Italian to Foreigner
Examiner Certification CELI Italian Language for Foreigners
15 years experience in 5 countries
Experience with both adults and children
In recent years I have studied, practiced and analyzed various teaching methodologies and taught students using "best practices". In addition to direct classroom teaching, I have had the honor and responsibility of providing didactic training at the language school where I am currently employed, for both teachers at the beginning of their career and American university professors interested in courses to strengthen and improve their teaching skills.
In my group lessons I prepare content and activities that are appropriate but challenging for the students so they work beyond their comfort zone and remember what they learn. I also have a vast experience as a private tutor and am quickly able to assess a student’s current language level and then personalize their lessons to allow the student to steadily advance.
