I love teaching and I try to make my lesson interesting and fun at the same time using games, images, original resources, music and videos. I have high and realistic expectations of every student. I always motivate and encourage my student, helping them to become confident speakers.
I prefer to base my courses around communication and active language interaction as well as solid understanding of the core language structure. I believe in a communicative didactics, based on conversation. I can also put stress on grammar rules, when it is necessary.
I place a huge importance on providing learning experiences that build upon the student’s prior knowledge. With me you can improve your reading/listening /writing/speaking skills.

A thirst for knowledge and understanding of Literature led me to complete in 2009 the Master Degree (Honors) in Philology and Ancient Literature in Milan.
Then I spent three years teaching Italian and Latin in Italy. In 2013 the desire to teach my mother tongue led me to complete the DITALS 1 in New York where I also worked until March 2015.
I am actually in London where I teach Italian and English (TEFL/TESOL). I love teaching and I’m very proud to know that I help people to achieve their goals.
