Hi my name is Stefania, I am 34 and I live in the countryside close to Rome. I have been teaching Italian for 9 years and and every time I start a lesson with a new person it is always an amazing experience, since a language is not just learning a new word or a new verb is much more than that. It is an encounter with a different culture which makes the study of a language more valuable and meaningful,
I am an easy going and friendly person who never loses sight of the professionalism a teacher should always have. I will be more than happy to answer all your questions/doubts about grammar and pronunciation

My approach is always communicative. I design and implement lessons plans for young students and adults at different levels by tailoring teaching methods to suit their individual needs, that can be for business or cultural reasons.
I always try to motivate and direct students to maximum performance by encouraging a positive and energetic environment.
I often use role plays to stress the importance of context to language learning, to develop grammar in a simpler way and to improve pronunciation. We will also read and discuss topics taken from newspapers, blogs, books which offer an interesting and updated view of the language.
Stefania is an excellent teacher, I find lessons enjoyable and stimulating. Stefania uses a range of teaching material and techniques to assist students to build confidence with their language skills without becoming frustrated. Highly recommended!
