Information About Gabriella - Tadley teacher - (24 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Gabriella:
I am a qualified and experienced teacher of Italian, Spanish, Latin, English and Maths having prepared hundreds of students for Common Entrance, 11+, GCSE and A level.
I have two degrees: one from the Open University in Psychology, the other in Philosophy and Classics (obtained in Italy), which gives me the background to tutor in Italian, Latin and Ancient Greek. I have learnt Spanish in Sixth Form Colleges in the UK and I have kept the language alive with many trips to Spanish speaking Countries and talking/writing to friends from Spain and South America.
Because I am working in a secondary school in Berkshire, I have an enhanced DBS certificate which I am prepared to show to parents and students if they wish to see it.
At the moment I teach English and Maths (GCSE) in a secondary school in Berkshire.
In the past I have been Head of Department in Preparatory, Secondary, Public schools, Lecturer in various Six Form Colleges and Industries in the U.K.
I prepare students for Common Entrance, Scholarships, GCSE and A level.
I am tutoring at University level and also adult/mature students.
I am an Italian examiner ( A2 level written papers) with a large U.K .Examination board and I am an Exam Officer with the Institute of Linguists.
I have the enthusiasm and commitment to create a stimulating, inspirational and enjoyable environment for my students in order to communicate to them my love for the subjects I teach. As a native Italian and as an accomplished teacher of this language, I often find myself highlighting linguistic connections between Italian, English, Latin and Classical Greek. I find this an invaluable way of helping people to remember and understand the languages they study with me…

I thoroughly recommend Gabriella who, with charm & humour, is providing me with a very thorough, practical and up to date insight into the Italian language.
I would highly recommend her.
Highly recommend Gabriella
Not for her the lengthy vocabulary lists and detailed explanations of tenses… she wants her students to enjoy the learning experience and uses everyday situations to enhance the sheer fun of making progress.
I do not need to read Dante so I am learning the spoken language and loving every minute…
I strongly recommend her.
Gabriella is well organised and makes learning structured and efficient whilst at the same time keeping the sessions interesting and relaxed.
We'll certainly hope to be able to continue with Gabriella for the forseeable future.
