My specialist subject is Italian as Foreign/Second language. I have been tutoring Italian since 2009 and am a qualified Italian Language Teacher and Examiner
experienced in all levels. I have worked in primary and secondary schools and also taught adults.
I am a MFL (Modern Foreign Teacher) and EAL (English Additional Language) Teacher and an LSA (Learning Support Assistant) experienced in SEN with Speech, Language and Communication.
I can also provide online Italian tuition, I attended the course and then reached the status as Online Italian Tutor with the University of Pisa.
I have vast and varying experience that has lead me to adopt methods shaped specifically for the students needs and targets. I strongly believe in the importance of the student cantered learning process, involving all learning styles.
After 4 years of teaching Italian in an adult school I became a courses-coordinator and internship teachers-trainer (academic year 2012/13). I have also written the literacy curriculum and yearly program for an Italian Language school.
