About me

Hello!

My name is Anna, I am a native Italian speaker and I live in Rome. After few professional experiences I have decided to fully devote myself to my true passion which is teaching. I consider the latter a transmission of linguistic competence, culture, traditions and music.

I started teaching in the late ‘80s therefore I have a long record in this field. I am a sweet, demanding teacher. My classes are funny and I provide a good range of activities including songs. Particular attention is given to pronunciation and intonation.

In my free time I do gardening, I ride my bike, I go for long walks and I practise bel canto. In my life-span I have moved and worked in foreigner countries of different continents and I have lived in close contact with various cultures and languages. Furthermore, I do voluntary social work and I do care for environmental protection.

Qualifications & Experience

I graduated in International Studies at La Sapienza University (110) in Rome and afterwards I have attended a course provided by the University of Siena and I have earned the DITALS II Certificate, Certificate in teaching Italian to foreigners coming from any country, from beginners to advanced, from children to adults. Meanwhile, I keep updating. I have also attended courses of Italian elocution and storytelling at UPTER, Università Popolare di Roma.

I have taught in many schools in Rome (Ziqqurat, Focus, Studio Italia, Diana Lucozzi to mention but a few) and I have given private tuition to students coming from all over the world and walks of life.

I have obtained the Certificate of Proficiency in English – CPE of the Cambridge University (with a B). This is the most advanced qualification offered by Cambridge and has been developed to show achievement of an extremely high level of English.

Teaching Approach

I opt for the communicative-humanistic approach which allows to learn a language much faster and effectively. From the very beginning, with a positive attitude, I encourage students to express themselves using simple sentences in role plays. The communicative approach is based on the idea that learning language successfully comes through having to communicate real meaning. When learners are involved in real communication, their natural strategies for language acquisition will be used, and this will allow them to learn to use the language.

Grammar is taught reflecting on the sentences used in the activities. I listen to my students’ needs and I carefully chose an appropriate way to achieve their goals. Any attainments can be reached with hard work, determination and perseverance.

About me

Salve!

Mi chiamo Anna, sono italiana e vivo a Roma. Dopo alcune esperienze professionali, ho deciso di dedicarmi totalmente alla mia vera passione, l’insegnamento, che considero trasmissione di conoscenze linguistiche, cultura, tradizioni e musica.

Ho incominciato ad insegnare alla fine degli anni 80 ed ho maturato, pertanto, una lunga esperienza nel campo. Sono una docente dolce ma esigente, le lezioni sono divertenti. Utilizzo una vasta gamma di materiali, risorse e canzoni. Particolare attenzione viene dedicata alla pronuncia ed alla intonazione.

Nel tempo libero mi dedico al giardinaggio, a lunghe pedalate in bicicletta, a camminare in mezzo alla natura ed al bel canto. Nel corso della mia vita ho vissuto e lavorato in molti Paesi del mondo ed in diversi continenti, venendo a contatto con culture e lingue diverse. Inoltre, sono attiva nel volontariato e nella difesa dell’ambiente.

Qualifications & Experience

Sono laureata in Studi Internazionali all’Università “La Sapienza” di Roma (110) ed ho successivamente frequentato un corso dell’Università per Stranieri di Siena e conseguito la Certificazione DITALS II, Certificazione per l’insegnamento della lingua italiana a stranieri di tutte le età, provenienza e livello di competenza fino al C2 del Quadro Comune Europeo.

Ho insegnato in alcune scuole di Roma (Ziqqurat, Focus, Studio Italia e Diana Lucozzi) ed ho dato lezioni privatamente a studenti provenienti da tutti i continenti ed estrazioni sociali. Mi tengo continuamente aggiornata tramite dei corsi specialistici. Ho frequentato corsi di dizione italiana e lettura scenica tenuti dall’UPTER, Università Popolare di Roma.

Ho conseguito il Certificate of Proficiency in English - CPE dell’Università di Cambridge (B). Dimostra il raggiungimento di un livello estremamente elevato di conoscenza della lingua inglese.

Teaching Approach

Adotto l’approccio comunicativo ed umanistico che permettono di imparare una lingua più rapidamente ed efficacemente. La grammatica è affrontata con il metodo deduttivo, partendo cioè dalla comunicazione effettiva, si arriva a riflettere sulle regole stesse. Fin dall’inizio, con un atteggiamento propositivo, incoraggio i discenti ad esprimersi usando frasi semplici simulando situazioni reali.

Ascolto le esigenze degli studenti e scelgo un percorso adatto per raggiungere più efficacemente i loro obiettivi. Qualsiasi traguardo può essere raggiunto attraverso l’impegno, la perseveranza e la pazienza.

I really enjoyed my lesson. She was very patient, I'm an older woman learning a new language and her pace was excellent. A good teacher should make sure the student know how to pronounce the alphabet - she did!!!. Excellent teacher!!!
