About me

I am half Italian, half German, born 1981 in the beautiful town of Wuppertal, Germany. Thus I have two mother tongues which I fluently speak: Italian and German! I perfectly know both cultures, and I am able to help You deal with the two environments.

Furthermore, for many years I worked in an English speaking environment in Germany, keeping in contact with partners from all over the world, thus using the English language every day.

The love for languages is what made me become a professional language teacher, which you will benefit a lot from!

Qualifications & Experience

Part of my professional training involved university studies of linguistics in German and Italian as a Foreign Language (2003-2008). After that I enrolled the 2 year state seminar leading to a more elaborated didactic and methodical training in classes (2008-2010).

In the meantime I got a few advanced courses on didactics. These included innovative teaching methods that imply body movement, but also more traditional ways like the Montessori pedagogy.

I have experience in teaching someone with absolute no pre-knowledge as well as teaching higher levels, in any of these cases keeping my patience towards the student, motivating them at the same time and using official methodology.

Teaching Approach

An essential part of my teaching is made by real didactic production. I prepare lessons in advance, by including as much as possible such elements as Total Physical Response, Echo-reading, Task Based Instruction, Humorous Learning, Word & Picture Associations, and more...

From time to time, music and video clips will be used for learning purposes. Also current films in the target language may be used as a motivating factor. If the student wishes, he will receive instruction on how to work by himself on the language before the following lesson.

About me

Sono nato nel 1981 a Wuppertal, una città situata in Germania dell'ovest. Viste le mie origini italotedesche sono in grado di insegnare perfettamente due lingue: l'italiano e il tedesco. Conosco ambi le due culture e sono in grado di insegnare ai miei studenti come gestire il confronto con le due culture.

Oltre a ciò per alcuni anni ho lavorato in un ambiente internazionale, coltivando le mie conoscenze dell'inglese e praticando la lingua a base giornaliera.

L'amore per le lingue è ciò che mi ha fatto diventare un insegnante di lingue. Credo che i miei studenti ne approfittano da questo fatto!

Qualifications & Experience

Parte della mia formazione sono stati gli studi universitarii di linguistica e didattica italiana e tedesca (2003-2008). Dopo ciò ho frequentato per due anni dei corsi di formazione pedagogica imparando metodi elaborati d'insegnamento in classe (2008-2010).

Nel frattempo ho partecipato a vari corsi e attività d'aggiornamento, con enfasi su metodologie innovative che fanno uso del movimento e della communicazuione verbale nel processo di apprensione linguistica.

Le mie esperienze d'insegnamento riguardano, giovani, bambini come pure adulti, di vari mestieri, studiosi, gente d'affare e ingenieri inclusi.

Teaching Approach

Parte essenziale del mio lavoro è la preparazione della lezione in anticipo. Nell'insegnamento includo metodi come il Total Physical Response, i Role-Play, la lettura sincronizzata, l'umore, associazioni memnoniche, e altri.

Da tempo in tempo includo anche delle canzoni o dei brani tratti da film per suscitare attenzione e capacità ricettive di ascolto e comprensione. Se lo studente vuole otterrà abbastanza compiti da continuare a lavorare per conto proprio sull'argomento.

About me

Als Deutschitaliener bin ich 1981 in Wuppertal geboren. Damit beherrsche ich zwei Muttersprachen: das Deutsche und das Italienische! Ich kenne beide Länder aufs Beste und bin in der Lage, meine Schüler zu helfen, sich in beiden Kulturen zurecht zu finden.

Des Weiteren habe ich mehrjährig in einem internationalen Umfeld in Deutschland gearbeitet und täglich Kontakte aus aller Welt gepflegt. Dadurch habe ich auch meine Englischkenntnisse perfektionieren können.

Die Liebe zu Sprachen ist, was mich dazu geführt hat, den Beruf des Sprachlehrers einzuschlagen. Meine Schüler profitieren sehr von dieser Tatsache!

Qualifications & Experience

Wichtigster Teil meiner beruflichen Ausbildung ist das sprachwissenschaftliche Studium in Deutsch und Italienisch als Fremdsprachen (2003-2008), das ich an den Universitäten Wuppertal und Münster absolvierte. Im Anschluss daran erfolgte das zweijährige Referendariat am Staatlichen Studienseminar (2008-2010). Seitdem arbeite ich in Teilzeit als Lehrer für Italienisch und Deutsch. In der Zwischenzeit habe ich mehrere Fortbildungen zur Fremdsprachendidaktik belegt.

Ich habe Erfahrung, im Anfängerlevel genauso zu unterrichten wie in höheren Stufen. Dabei behalte ich stets meine Geduld gegenüber dem Lerner, motiviere ihn und wende kommunikative Sprachlehrmethoden an.

Meine Erfahrungen betreffen alle Zielgruppen: Kinder und Jugendliche, Erwachsene, Geschäftsleute und Akademiker.

Teaching Approach

Durch meine Aus- ud Weiterbildung beherrsche ich eine sehr breite Auswahl an Unterrichtsmethoden. Wichtiger Bestandteil meiner Arbeit ist die Vorbereitung der Stunden. Dabei implementiere ich Elemente wie Bewegungsreaktion, Echo-/Synchronlesen, Handlungsorientierung, Lernen mit Humor, Wort- und Bildassoziationen, etc.

Von Zeit zu Zeit werden Musikdateien und Filme in der Zielsprache behandelt. Wenn der Schüler es wünscht, erhält er zum nächsten Unterricht auch Hilfestellungen zur Weiterarbeit.

Alles in allem vertrete ich einen Unterrichtsstil, der dem Schüler viel Spaß macht und in die Lage versetzt, mit einem glücklichen Gefühl eine Sprache zu erlernen.
