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.
I am an experienced language learner and I need conversation practise rather than grammar instruction. Stefania is patient, proactive, and a very pleasant teacher. I have had 10 lessons and am looking forward to continuing with her.
I have been having lessons regularly with Stef for 1 year now. I am still enjoying my lesson and continues to improve. Thank you Stef! You are the best!
