Personal Description:

Hi, my name is Valeria. I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Modern Foreign Languages (Italian, French and Spanish), holding a PGCE from the University of East Anglia, and an M.A. in French and English Translation from the University of Genova. I’ve been teaching languages for three years in English secondary schools, and before that I taught Italian in secondary schools in France and to adult as a private tutor.

I offer friendly, creative and tailor-made online language lessons (Skype) in Italian to adults and teenagers; so if you want to explore a new language or improve your existing skills, do get in touch!

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching languages for 5 years as a private tutor and a teacher in secondary schools in England from teenagers to adults.

Teaching Approach:

I believe that there is no single teaching method that works best for everyone. Rather than a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution, I prefer to adapt different pedagogical practices depending on the different needs, contexts and objectives of the student.

My main teaching principles are, however, underpinned by second language acquisition research:

Always learn a language in context, and one that you are actually interested in!

Extensive use of the target language from day one.

Lots of speaking and listening activities.

Use of authentic materials such as films, articles, songs, books, short videos, based on your interests.

Learning grammar inductively, which means discovering patterns of language by noticing how it is used, and most importantly by way of lots of practice in meaningful, creative and spontaneous ways.
