Ciao! My name is Barbara, I am currently a Ph.D. student with St. Peter’s College at the University of Oxford, where I am also a part-time lecturer in Italian Literature and Language Instructor in Italian.
I hold two degrees: an M.St. in Modern Languages from the University of Oxford and an M.A. in Modern Literature from the University of Cagliari, Italy.
My teaching experience is mainly with secondary school students (Italian GCSE- both boards Edexcel/AQA; A-levels )and university students. At the moment I work as a part-time Italian teacher in a private secondary school in Oxfordshire.
I also have extensive experience teaching Italian as a foreign language to children—at the moment I am working as Italian tutor in two private primary schools in Summertown, Oxford.
Before beginning my graduate studies at Oxford, I spent eight years working as a teacher in a private institute in Italy. The subjects I taught include Italian (grammar, syntax and literature from the medieval to modernist and contemporary age), Latin (language and literature), History, Philosophy, and Art.
My approach is adaptive according to the specific needs of my students. I tend to follow a communicative method and from the first day of lessons and at each ability level I only speak Italian.
I put particular emphasis on spoken language and on communication, but also deal with the 4 base abilities (reading, writing, oral comprehension and speaking).
I design my lessons to always be interesting, interactive and fun, and I create a relaxed atmosphere in which learning is done naturally :) I use text books and other authentic material, like newspapers, magazines and video, to help facilitating learning about contemporary Italy and the many different aspects of Italian culture.
