Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hi, I am a native Italian speaker, graduated in Foreign Languages, Chinese and English.

My experience as a private tutor started more than 15 years ago. I have been teaching English to school children and to adults who want to start or improve English as a secondary language.

Recently I have started to teach Italian to foreigners because it is important to spread our own culture. I think that Italian culture has got much to offer.

I have been doing translations since 1996. My main specialities are: Technical, Marketing, Medical, Business and others.

I also spent few years in the Far East working in the sales, marketing and administration. This helped me to strengthen my skills in English and made me feel confident with challenges and new situations.

I am an easy going person and I like to forge good relationships with the people with whom I am committed.

Qualifications & Experience

University of Cà Foscari, Venice, Italy: Degree in Foreign Languages and Literature, Chinese and English.

ASERGraf, School of Graphology, Padua, Italy: Diploma of "Rehabilitator of handwriting" for children with Learning Disorder in handwriting.

ASERGraf, School of Graphology, Padua, Italy: Diploma of Graphologist with a specialization in family graphology.

Teaching Approach

I start by asking a few question about my students in order to break the ice and get to know what they need. I normally plan student tailored lessons to meet people’s expectations.

I consider it is important to treat both grammar and conversation the same to make students feel comfortable with Italian. We will do conversation through Skype so that your listening and speaking skills will improve simultaneously. I will also send you some written exercises, by email, aimed to strengthen your memorization and the ability to write.

Whether you want to learn Italian for travel, study or live in Italy, it is a good reason to get close to this fascinating language and culture. I wish you an enjoyable experience!

Feel free to contact me for further information.

See you soon.

Patrizia
