I'm friendly, patient and professional.
I always try to make my students feel comfortable, conducting my lessons in a relaxing and interesting way.
I generally lead my lessons as much as possible in Italian, supporting and facilitating in this way the new linguistic input.
I always ask my students what their motivation and language goals are.
I prepare personalized lesson plans, aligning them with the aims of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
After each lesson, I use to send homework, exercises and linguistic material by email.
