English (Foreign Language)
I am Italian and I have a CELTA qualification. I have over 20 year experience in working in Higher Education covering roles in Management and Business Development, Human Resources, Training and Coaching.
Both fluent in English and Italian and with a specific interest in professional development. I have been organising courses and events for many years for non-native English speakers. I teach English to speakers of other languages and Italian for those who need to learn the language for study, business or pleasure.
I currently work at a prestigious London based university so I teach because I have a passion for it and I enjoy teaching and learning.
Italian Language: I currently teach Italian to adults in One-to-one Conversations; and at Elementary to Advance level (resources used: Nuovo Contatto & Contatti series, Affresco Italiano, Own resources). I also have experience in teaching to pairs and to groups of a max of 4/6. Lessons are organised around students' needs and their commitments. A set of lessons can be organised for learners who are planning to travel to Italy for pleasure, study or business.
