I am Carmine, an Italian qualified teacher. I live in Salern, in the south of Italy.
I love football and Italian food as well as travelling and get to know other cultures.
I am on offer at 7 dollars for the first ten lessons you book, so why don't try me out?
I have a university degree in science communication, specialising in journalism and I am in the second year of a second degree in languages and foreign cultures, specialising in English and Spanish. I have got the CEDILS certifications which is a certification of competence in teaching Italian as a foreign language or second language. I have also got C1/2 level proficiency certificates in English, Spanish and Japanese (CAE, DELE C2, JLPT2).
As to my working experience, I worked in an English boarding school for 3 years from 2014 to 2016 teaching Spanish and Italian to students from several countries. The lessons were group sessions or one-to-one sessions, 9 lessons per week. The level of Italian taught was beginner, intermediate and advanced. I had 10 Italian students altogether.
Since 2016 I have been working as an Italian tutor and I've taught more than 600 lessons. I have also worked as a private tutor here in Salerno teaching Italian, Spanish and English to students at home.
I like to teach in a communicative way. That means that the student will immerse himself in a situation, always different for each didactic unit and will interact and learn all parts of the language, from grammar to pronunciation and culture. I am always organised and coherent with my teaching, so there is no confusion and as much as possible is retained. .
My lessons will adjust to your needs, so if you want to sit the CILS exam, I can help you prepare and pass it. If you wish to improve your speaking or just to talk, we can do that. I am all ears and and at your disposal for everything you need, so don't be scared to ask.
I provide teaching materials. That means books, audio tracks and keys to the exercises.
