About me

I am a freelance passionate Italian language tutor. After graduating, I took a specialization in teaching Italian language to foreigners and then I joined some projects to train my skills abroad. I have been working as a teacher of Italian in Spain, Poland and Croatia. Now I am back in Italy, where I am working as online Italian teacher. I love this job because It makes me travel all over the world just through my laptop and entice me to remain always up to date.

Teaching Approach

My method is authentic and my approach follows situations, not handbooks. At the same time, I provide my students with a solid grammar base. At the end of every lesson I send a grammar exercise which is related to what we have just discussed. I ask my students to send me the completed exercise before our next lesson. I give feedback to my students as I think paying attention to their work is very important in keeping them motivated and to avoid them giving up. So, in the next lesson we correct homework and then we move on. I choose to talk more than the students only in the grammar explanation of a lesson. In all the other cases, I try to reduce teacher talking time because I want my lessons student-centric. They have to practise, not just to listen and got bored. Furthermore, I try to create a relationship with them: I've noticed that when I remember what they told me in the previous lesson they improve their speaking skills. In order not to forget any details, I take notes.
