Bio:

My teaching method is based on the Communicative Approach. So, my classes aim at developing the learner’s competence to communicate in the target language with an enhanced focus on real-life situations. I like reading and discovering what is happening in the World and in Italy. I am always looking for authentic materials (italian articles, podcasts, songs etc.) to bring to class.

My teaching methodology:
Speaking is a huge component of my classes. We will focus on language structure by following inductive reasoning. I have found the perfect book which matches my teaching approach. I will provide it to you for free at the beginning of our course. I will also provide a grammar book and PDF files, as well as any additional reading and learning material you may request.
My teaching background:

I majored in "Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language" from University of Bologna's MA, completing a thesis entitled "the role of motivation when learning a FL". I have been working for one semester as an Italian Teacher at Universidad C. de Madrid. In 2021, I started my freelance activity.

My background outside of teaching:

I started working when I was 16 to pay for my studies. I have held different summer jobs to pay for books, rent and University fees. I would struggle to study for an exam after a twelve-hour long shift as a waitress, but I never thoughy once to quit my studies. And now I am glad to do the job I love
