Having worked as language teacher in a secondary school setting for over 5 years, I strongly value the importance of structure, objectives and outcomes of a lesson so that both the teacher and the student know what they are working towards.
Similarly, I highly believe that language learning is fun as it is not a subject you just study, but a culture and lifestyle for you to explore. I have also taught in a Primary school where making lessons engaging is key through songs and games, at University where time-pressures are met, and as a personal tutor where catering the lesson to meet the need of the student is paramount.
As a tutor I am flexible, lively and eager to tailor my lessons to suit every individual. My lessons include conversational talk, listening, reading, grammar and writing in the target language.
I am a qualified Spanish, French and Italian teacher to both children and adults. I have worked in Secondary schools for 6 years and have 1 year experience of tutoring individual students. Having grown up bilingual in Italian and English, I am very passionate about language learning, so much so that I am married to a Portuguese man. I have lived in Italy during my childhood, and have lived in Spain for a year during my University degree. I have also spent two summers working in Spain as an Au pair. I have travelled to many countries and enjoy meeting new people. I am mother to a beautiful girl called Sofia, and enjoy lovely walks in the countryside and keeping active with YouTube videos.
