About me

Hello! My name is Gerry. I am passionate about teaching and interacting with learners and enthusiastic about further developing my skills and growing as a teacher.

I am dynamic, energetic, enjoy interactive teaching styles, and empowering and motivating my learners. I have excellent presentation, facilitation and coaching skills.

Qualifications & Experience

I was awarded a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) teaching qualification by Cambridge ESOL (University of Cambridge). Focused on classical studies and ancient Latin and Greek civilization, I graduated in Communication. I also teach Italian. Moreover, I know Spanish and French.

I currently support students from all over the world with their goals. In these years, I have had the opportunity to connect with all kinds of language learners, from young learners to advanced adult ones.

Teaching Approach

I use very effective textbooks for my students. In addition, I like to have conversations.

In my opinion, knowing the secrets of everyday language is also important. I am very passionate about making my classes exciting, enjoyable and also effective. I use group work, presentations and role plays to help me teach, but this also helps people develop their skills.

We covered a lot of grammar in the 1.5 hours and I took a lot of notes. I would have liked to have practiced the grammar though. I didn't have any opportunity to practice the Italian I knew and had learnt.
