Bio:

I'm Vanessa and I graduated in Modern Literature at the University of Bologna and I have a Master's degree in Science of Religions obtained at the University of Padua. I started tutoring Italian a few years ago to high schoolers; this year I have been teaching adults and children. When I lecture with children, I like to have a nice talk, read a story, or play didactic games. With adults I identify the topics in which they have difficulties and do a lesson about it. I also propose conversations.

My teaching methodology:
To teach adults, I first identify what level to start with in teaching grammar. Then, I conduct an organized lesson on the subject, including providing examples, which the student can do as impromptu exercises to assess understanding of the topic. For children, I use books with bilingual fairy tales or simple explanations on basic topics, but we can also have a talk, play educational games, or watch a cartoon in Italian. I also provide worksheets with vocabulary learned during the lesson.
My teaching background:

As a live tutor, I helped two Italian high school boys respectively improve their writing skills in Italian and with logical period analysis. The latter student, thanks to my help, was able to recover a school debt with an excellent grade. I am currently an online tutor and I teach Latin to a woman and Italian to two children and a girl.

My background outside of teaching:

I was a proofreader for the publishing house Gilgamesh Edizioni in Italy; I was a babysitter for two children aged two and three in Paris and I am currently trying to enroll in a doctorate program in France to complete my studies.
