Hello! I'm a Canadian private teacher for standard English.
I am very passionate about my work, and that is why I try very hard to help you learn to truly communicate - spontaneously and naturally, as would be the case when you will use English in your work, studies, trips, or relationships.
-> Are created for you: I do not follow the same textbook textbook for each student, I focus on your goals, needs, and areas of difficulty. I create exercises and lessons specifically for you.
-> They are well balanced, according to your preferences. I focus mainly on conversation, stimulating the listening and speaking capacities, but we can also work on vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, writing, spelling, and oral comprehension.
-> They will teach you not only "textbook" English, but also colloquial phrases, words and ways of speaking.
-> They will help you to be able to maintain and use the language. For this purpose, I use various exercises of "repetition" and revision, to approach a topic or concept from several angles for different situations.
-> They include several types of activities, in order to learn in a dynamic and interesting way. My experience with 10+ foreign language courses and classes, and my knowledge of such languages, will also help me understand your difficulties, and find the ideal methods to overcome them.
As for the materials, don't worry about having to buy something, because I organize them for you.
The first lesson will include a relaxed assessment of your current level and knowledge, by talking about your goals and interests.
In this way, I can plan the lessons to concentrate on what you most want, without wasting time and always trying to engage you in a way that's both effective and fun :-)
I have worked with people of different ages, different interests and obviously with different levels of English. At whatever level you are now, I'm confident I can help you improve.
For any questions, do not hesitate to send me a message or schedule a sample lesson, and I'll be happy to give you more details.
** To note: at the moment I only teach by Hangouts / Skype. I am currently in the same time zone as Madrid **

SIlvana è davvero una prof che ha passione per l'insegnamento ed è proprio per questo che si ottengono i risultati migliori!
Si interessa di ciascun studente assegnando ad ognuno il metodo migliore per raggiungere l'obiettivo prefissato dello studente (che di conseguenza diventa anche l'obiettivo di Silvana).

Con lei andate sul sicuro.
I met Silvia six years ago when we both attended University of Ottawa. In the time that I have known her she has accomplished a great deal in terms of both academic and extracurricular achievements. I was always impressed by her ability to balance the responsibility of being a full time student, while also working to support herself. In addition to school and work, Silvia also participated in extracurricular activities, such as the UOttawa Kin Club (which she helped found) and studying as a pianist. She has managed to achieve all of this and more due to a combination her incredible work ethic and positive attitude. Recently I had the opportunity to witness some of her lessons when she came to visit me a few weeks ago, she is a very patient teacher who puts in a great deal of effort to personalize each students learning experience to meet their specific needs and goals, she is also very punctual and well organized. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in improving their language skills.

Silvana has shown time and time again to be resourceful and fully dedicated to her students. She is constantly trying to find a way to make things better for her students.
Teacher Silvia is very talented in what she does. I have known her for over a year, and I am impressed with her language abilities, and importantly, her ever-growing broad heart. I am amazed by her enthusiasm for her teachings. I learn from her daily, as she diligently prepares for each of her students’ individual class lesson; I can see her passion and dedication each time. I value that her class offers the students a comfortable format to learn professional and communicative English. It is an important factor for language learners, and she makes sure to value it as well. Silvia teaches her students as if their journey is also her journey; hand-in-hand, she makes the students’ goals her priority, and stays honest about the progress. She spends her hours outside of class to prepare the optimal exercise and activity for each of her students. Lastly, Silvia knows numerous languages fluently, and with that being said, I am confident that a language-learner knows how to learn a language.
I have worked under Silvia and with her on a number of projects. She is a dedicated and resourceful woman who can demonstrate great patience and has wonderful listening and communication skills.
She has participated in a number of community projects and demonstrates great communication by listening to others. She is an excellent multi-tasker, and overall highly capable person who I feel I can count on. Her charisma and dedicated work ethic are positively infectious to other group members.
I would ardently recommend her for her enviable range of communication skills and potential, her inspiring curiosity and strong work ethic, and her positive attitude and dependability. She is without a doubt an asset to any organization.

"Creo que Silvana será la mejor opción para cualquier trabajo de tutoría. Ella me ha estado ayudando durante los últimos tres años para mejorar mis habilidades de escritura en inglés. Su disponibilidad con respuestas rápidas es un signo de dedicación hacia su cliente.
Ella me ayudó con la escritura técnica y de negocios. Siempre corrige errores gramaticales y estructura de oraciones independientemente del contenido técnico en la escritura. Hay muy pocos tutores que tuvieron esta habilidad para entender el contexto técnico / comercial y corregirlos en solo una lectura. Le deseo la mejor de las suertes para su futuro. Ella es definitivamente la mejor!"
