About me

My name is Paola Piccardo and I am a native speaker of Italian. I have lived in Scotland for the past 9 years and I love teaching Italian as a foreign language.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a PhD in Modern Languages obtained at La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.

After graduation I went to Scotland to study for an MSc in Library and Information Studies. I have been teaching Italian as a foreign language for 6 years.

I have students of various age and nationality. I teach privately one-to-one and to small groups for language schools and for the university. In addition I am experienced in distance learning and teaching through Skype and the internet.

Teaching Approach

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience. My Skype classes are tailored to the students' individual needs and make use of a wide range of Italian learning resources available online.

My teaching method is based on conversation exercises in Italian with the help of articles about topics in which the student is interested (for example travel, culture, music, sport, etc.), which can be taken from newspapers and magazines online.

The conversation exercises can be on specific topics chosen by the student who can prepare them before the class.

Often my students wish to cover specific areas of Italian grammar, to aid in this I can provide exercises and study materials for my students to review before the class. I can also correct written exercises and prepare students for exams.

About me

Mi chiamo Paola Piccardo, sono di madrelingua italiana. Vivo in Scozia la mia passione e’ insegnare italiano agli stranieri.

Qualifications & Experience

Sono laureata all'universita' La Sapienza di Roma dove ho conseguito la laurea in lingue e letterature straniere (inglese, francese e italiano). Ho conseguito anche un Master in Scienze Bibliotecarie in Scozia. In piu’ ho esperienza nel campo del 'distance learning' tramite l’uso di Skype e internet.

Teaching Approach

Mi piace insegnare attraverso le nuove tecnologie come Skype che arricchiscono l’esperienza di apprendimento dello studente. Le lezioni su Skype si basano sulle esigenze individuali dello studente e sulle risorse didattiche disponibili online.

Il mio metodo di insegnamento tramite Skype si basa sulla conversazione in italiano con l'aiuto di articoli di quotidiani su argomenti a scelta che interessano lo studente (per esempio: viaggi, sport, arte, musica, ecc.). Gli esercizi di conversazione possono anche essere su temi specifici a scelta dello studente che possono essere preparati prima della lezione.

Spesso gli studenti vogliono coprire aree specifiche della grammatica italiana, per aiutare in questo posso fornire esercizi e materiale didattico che possono essere preparati prima della lezione. Correggo anche esercizi scritti e preparo agli esami.
