About me

Ciao, I'm new here on Verbalplanet, but I am a professional Italian teacher, native speaker and fully qualified, with 6 years of international experience. I have taught 2000+ hours of Italian classes to 100+ students from 20+ countries, face-to-face and online. I worked in a university language centre in the US, in a secondary school in Australia, and in private language schools and companies in Germany. I am currently working as a language trainer for companies in London. I hold a Master's in Italian and I am pursuing a doctorate (PhD) in Italian at the University of London, UK.

I speak fluent English, Spanish and German, and I can provide you with grammatical explanations and translations also in these languages.

Teaching Approach

My teaching philosophy is based on the 'communicative method', which focuses on the specific communicative needs of each learner, particularly encouraging the oral production. I have loads of material for all levels which I can send to you for FREE (no need to buy any textbooks).

BEGINNERS: I specialise in teaching beginners, having created and delivered more than 1000 hours of classes to students with no prior knowledge of Italian. I will motivate you to produce spoken and written Italian as much as possible, as soon as possible, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED learners: We can implement our classes with excerpts from movies, books, songs and videos. I can teach you some slang too if you wish to help you sound more and more Italian.
