I have a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Linguistics from the University of Aosta, Italy.
I also am also fully qualified to teach Italian as a foreign language to foreigners, as a matter of fact in 2016 I earned the CEDILS (Certificazione in Didattica dell’Italiano a Stranieri /Certification to teach Italian to foreigners) from the University of Venice, Italy.
have been tutoring Italian learning since 2011 in different locations like France, Spain, and the United Kingdom, Slovakia and Japan. In 2014 I started to teach on the internet to students from around the world like the United States, Israel and Russia. I continue to maintain students from my early teaching years.
Other than Italian, I can speak fluently French, English, Spanish and Sicilian and I have a rough command of Brazilian Portuguese, German and Slovakian. I have also been studying the basics of Czech and Russian.
The lessons are focused on what you choose to focus on. I have lessons devoted to vocabulary, grammar, and Italian culture. Regardless of the lesson you prefer, they all focus on speaking and comprehension. I will help you with proper pronunciation and give you tips on how to understand Italian native speakers better.
We will have one-on-one conversations in which your abilities will be assessed.
I will listen carefully and correct mistakes and give you advice as needed.
Even if you are a complete beginner, I will introduce basic conversations and we will be speaking in Italian from lesson 1.
Because my lessons are focused on conversation, we will be speaking in Italian from day one. Achieving mastery can be a lifetime journey, however becoming fluent is possible in a relatively short time if you are motivated and practise as much as regularly as you can.
