 Discussion on work around the house, Pygmalion and the theatre, and a commentary on a song by Rino Gaetano. As always very useful both in terms of vocabulary and ideas. If anyone is looking for a top flight tutor look no further than Valentina. Her lessons are exceptional and she packs a huge amount into them.

 An excellent lesson in respect of a recent bereavement, short breaks away, and then more recent political developments in Italy. Full of useful vocabulary and phrases! Many thanks!

About me - English

I am an Italian native teacher and translator, living in Palermo, Italy.

I have a sound background in humanities and experience in cross-cultural mediation and journalism.

I love travelling, history, nature, languages and different cultures.

I believe in an open world.

Qualifications & Experience

I have taken both my secondary school certificate and my Master Degree in Italian language and Literature with the highest scores.

I have attended a cross-cultural mediation course at CERISDI and my English is CAE certified. I have always used different languages at work.

I have teaching experience as tutor and external expert in school projects (PONs) and several years experience in home teaching both of Italian and English as second language, ad of humanities as well.

I am also a freelance translator and I do occasional collaboration with newspapers (online you can find Italian articles signed by me).

I've also been Cross-cultural mediator, translator and interpreter for Cobas migrants' help desk for 3 years.

Teaching Approach

My teaching approach is focused on student's needs and aims.

Free trial lesson is important to define the student goals, why does he/she need to learn Italian (business, work, study, tourism, intellectual curiosity etc.) and his/her starting language level.

Generally, lessons are foremost focused on conversation and consequently on related grammar and lexicon, but approach and materials supplied can vary as student's aims do.

Popular italian songs, fiction and comics are often used to motivate the learner and to help memorization.

About me - Italian

Sono un'insegnante e traduttrice italiana, con un solido background umanistico ed esperienza nella mediazione interculturale e nel giornalismo freelance.

Amo viaggiare, la storia, le lingue, la natura e le differenti culture umane.

Credo in un mondo solidale ed aperto.

Qualifications & Experience

Sono nata e cresciuta in Italia dove ho conseguito il diploma di Maturità classica e la Laurea in Lettere Moderne col massimo dei voti.

Ho seguito un corso di mediazione interculturale presso il CERISDI e sono in possesso di certificazione CAE per la lingua Inglese. Ho sempre usato le lingue per lavorare.

Ho esperienza di insegnamento come tutor ed esperto esterno in progetti per le scuole (PONs) e diversi anni di esperienza come insegnante privata sia di Italiano che Inglese L2, che di altre materie umanistiche.

Sono inoltre traduttrice freelance e svolgo saltuarie collaborazioni giornalistiche (potete trovare i miei articoli firmati online).

Ho svolto per 3 anni il ruolo di traduttrice, interprete e mediatrice interculturale per lo Sportello Migranti Cobas.

Teaching Approach

Il mio metodo di insegnamento è focalizzato sulle esigenze specifiche dello studente.

La lezione di prova (gratuita) è fondamentale per definire gli obiettivi dello studente, le sue motivazioni all'apprendimento della lingua (che sia business, lavoro, studio, turismo, pura curiosità intellettuale o altro) ed il suo livello iniziale di Italiano.

Normalmente le lezioni si basano anzitutto sulla conversazione, sulla grammatica e sul vocabolario come conseguenza, ma sia l'approccio che i materiali scelti per la lezione varieranno in base allo scopo di apprendimento dello studente.

Per stimolare il discente e favorire la memorizzazione di vocabolario e strutture della lingua saranno inoltre utilizzati materiali multimediali come canzoni popolari, narrativa, filmati e fumetti.
