About me

I'm an Italian girl who is currently living in Helsinki, Finland. I have recently obtained my Master's Degree and TEFL Certificate and I am ready to jump-start my career as an English teacher! I am a native Italian speaker, but I consider English to be my "second native language", as it has been my main means of communication over the last two years. I have attended an English summer camp in London when I was 13 and I have spent a week at an American high school when I was 17. I love travelling and getting to know new people and cultures - I don't get scared easily!

Qualifications & Experience

Bachelor's Degree: Foreign Languages and Cultures (English, Spanish, German)

Master's Degree: International Business and Development

TEFL Certificate (220hours)

IELTS Certificate (C1/C2)

Private tutor for Italian kids (subjects: English, German and Spanish) and foreign kids (subject: Italian).

Currently working part-time as online ESL teacher for Chinese students

Teaching Approach

Since I have been working with kids for years, I can say that I undoubtedly am a patient teacher. When teaching, I prefer to focus on the fluency, rather than proficiency - I like it when my students get 100% involved in the lessons, and I don't think that teaching boring grammar rules ONLY is a good way to make them happy! I am versatile, and I like to differentiate the lessons I offer with several kinds of activities (like singing, for example).

About me

Sono una ragazza madrelingua italiana attualmente residente a Helsinki, Finlandia. Ho da poco ottenuto una laurea magistrale in economia, ma in triennale ho studiato lingue e culture straniere (Inglese, Spagnolo e Tedesco). Considero l'Inglese un po' come la mia seconda lingua madre, dal momento che, da due anni a questa parte, ho utilizzato più quest'ultima dell'Italiano... quindi dialogare con persone che parlano una lingua differente dalla mia non mi spaventa per nulla! Ho dato ripetizioni private a bambini (6-16 anni) per diversi anni e so per certo di voler diventare un'insegnante, in futuro!

Qualifications & Experience

Laurea triennale in Lingue e Culture Straniere Moderne.

Laurea magistrale in International Business and Development (corso di laurea interamente tenuto in Inglese).

Certificazione TEFL (220ore).

Certificazione IELTS.

Esperienza come tutor privata di materie linguistiche per bambini ed adolescenti (italiani e stranieri).

Teaching Approach

Avendo lavorato soprattutto con bimbi ed adolescenti, posso dire di essere un'insegnante paziente. Sono molto socievole e non mi imbarazzo a mettermi in gioco anche facendo attività che includono cantare, ballare, etc. Credo che la cosa più importante per uno studente non sia imparare a memoria noiose regole grammaticali, ma riuscire ad esprimersi (seppur non troppo correttamente all'inizio) nella lingua straniera, rompendo la barriera di imbarazzo che spesso, a parer mio, rende l'apprendimento della lingua più complicato. Naturalmente questo dipende anche dall'età, dalle aspettative e dalle motivazioni del singolo studente.
