I live in Edinburgh - Scotland - and work at The University of Edinburgh as Italian Tutor and at the Edinburgh School of English as English teacher. I have worked in one of the best boarding schools as ESL teacher and as EFL teacher both in the UK and Italy and have extensive experience with students from all over the world.
As a young enthusiastic, dynamic and flexible person, I can encourage and motivate people to achieve. I'm a qualified EFL teacher, I enjoy being creative and using my drama skills to inspire and create my classes. I communicate very well at all levels and ages.
I have travelled extensively and I really enjoy meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. Languages have always been my passion, together with theatre and acting which are my main interests and have recently become a job. Music is another great passion, I used to sing in a rock band and I've been going to singing lessons for years.

The lesson was great. I already learnt so much. Lisa was very patient with me and made the whole session very interesting. Would definitely take another lesson with her.
