Ciao! I am Stefano, a native and qualified Italian teacher with CLTA certificate of Italian teaching to adults.
Language is the key that opens the door to the knowledge of a place and its people. I feel really proud of my origins and always happy to help my clients by providing info about the culture and traditions of Italy. I believe as a teacher imparting technical knowledge is important but it is also essential to inspire interest and an enjoyable learning experience.
I always try to keep my students engaged by making my classes interesting. I do this by introducing current issues about Italy and any other topics of interest to my students. I ensure my classes are tailored to my students` levels and create an atmosphere where students can ask plenty of questions.
Lessons are planned to improve various skills, through the introduction of articles, audios or videos and usually end with a final task, when through a game or a role-play the student can practise the functions learnt during the session.
My aim is to make Italian classes fun as this keeps people motivated and passionate about learning. My teaching methodology has been developed using techniques learned at the International House which has been refined with my personal experience.
