About me

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

Teaching Approach

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.

Stefania is great! I enjoy our lessons and the way she corrects me and shares information via writing in Googledocs. We are making good progress and she is fun to talk with. I really enjoy the Attiva il Lessico book, where can learn specific situational topics and I can increase my vocabulary in a very practical way.
