Whyteleafe Tutor

Hi! My name is Luisa and I am Italian. I am currently living in Rome, running online lessons. Teaching is the career that gives me most enjoyment and reward, and the feedback I receive on a regular basis (from students and colleagues) tells me that my enthusiasm for teaching Italian is passed on to my students. I love travelling, cooking, gardening, dancing and singing (even though I am not that good at it!)

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher and teach English and Italian to adults. I have a degree in Pedagogy, which I took in 1996 at the University of Cassino. I have also a Certification in Education, which I took at the University of Sussex. For the last 15 years I have been teaching Italian and English (from beginner to advanced level) in FE Colleges and Universities. I have also run courses in Italian for holidays and for business purposes. I teach face-2-face and online.

Tutoring Approach

I enjoy variety in my teaching, and it is also necessary to meet the needs of different students:
• As standard practice I use CD player, games, online quizzes, and power point presentations in my lessons, but the emphasis of activity is on communication and dialogue and we spend a lot of time practicing listening and speaking.
• My individual tuition focuses even more strongly on conversational Italian, especially where the students have been more advanced.
• My role at the University where I run the course online places unique demands on me as a tutor. Not being able to see your students means that you need to adapt your communication style and place even more emphasis on clear and positive feedback than in a normal classroom environment

My teaching style is very friendly and professional. The content of the course is always discussed with the students so I can meet their needs.
My lessons are currently held at my place or online.
