I am an experienced and qualified teacher of Italian, Latin and Classical Greek with 25 years teaching experience.
Since 2009, I have taught at various levels of the SA and NSW teaching community (primary and high school), private adult education (WEA and private lessons) and I am an adjunct lecturer of Italian at both Flinders and Adelaide Universities. Prior to 2009, I was a high school teacher in Turin - Italy for almost 20 years. My family and I have been in Newcastle since November 2009.
one on one, group lessons, interactive on-line lessons (Skype and/or team viewer).
Italian lessons are made more about practical italian learning and i try to get students to focus on their interests. lessons can be cuisine, fashion, history/arts focused. lessons are broken in to parts to make them less boring.
I specialise in teaching Latin and greek through the method of contextual induction.This approach is neither the so-called "natural" nor the "grammar translation" method. In this method the student, who requires no previous knowledge of Latin, begins with simple sentences, such as "Rōma in Italiā est" (Rome is in Italy). Words are always introduced in a context which reveals the meaning behind them. Grammar is gradually made more complex, until the student is reading unadapted Latin texts.
