Ambitious and enthusiastic certified Italian teacher with a directly related work experience, looking to start a career in schools and universities. I attended a teaching course at the prestigious Italian Cultural Institute of London and I have a linguistic and literary background.
I taught Italian as a foreign language to classes of international students at different levels, preparing and creating lesson plans, authentic materials and exercises. I used to work in a group of 4 teachers every day.
I've also helped eight young students of different age and level in passing their Italian school exams in various subjects such as English, French and Italian language, History and Italian Poetry with excellent results and sometimes by teaching a subject from the very beginning. I used a didactic approach based on students’ materials and I created related exercises and tests for them.
I normally use communicative teaching methods based on the "Affective-Humanistic Approach", but I'm also able to teach in a more traditional way, utilizing programmes and materials given to students by the schools. Should it be needed, I will create specific, authentic materials and I will tailor the lessons to the different students’ needs and levels. I will motivate students not only by using classic educational materials, but also proposing technological, practical and cultural activities based on everyday needs and always student-centered.
