Personal Description:

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.

Tutoring Experience:

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.
English as a Foreign Language: Elementary, Intermediate, Upper Intermediate and one-to-one conversations (resources Face2Face, New Cutting Edge Intermediate- Students and Teacher’s Resource books; Sounds English – a pronunciation practice book, onestopenglish and Internet resources. Each lesson is prepared according to the needs. Handouts are provided.
I have experience in teaching to pairs and to groups. I am also very keen to teach Italian culture if you are planning to move to Italy or visit the country widely.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are organised around students' needs and their commitments.
A set of lessons can be organised for learners planning to travel to Italy for pleasure, study or business.
I am an experienced coach so I support and encourage students to develop their potential using different and innovative approaches according to students' preferred style of learning.
A number of resources can be used and adapted according to student learning style and interest. Own material are also used around the target language.
I usually teach at my own home but i am willing to travel a short distance. Larger groups (but not more than 6 people) are taught in hired teaching spaces.
