Fully qualified teacher - Italian native speaker, but perfectly bilingual also teaching history and geography

In a nut shell, I am educated to PhD level. I am an intellectual historian. I also hold a master's degree in Translation and another in Environmental Studies. I have a PGCE in MFL and a BA in Italian Studies. I have taught around the world and as such, I have been exposed to different and differing people from all walks of life.
In my dissertation for my first master's degree, I have explored the use of controlled structures for teaching purposes and in the years have found that they are very effective when applied to those who want to learn another language. You would speak and learn the grammar of the language both inductively and deductively. It is a fun yet extremely efficient way to learn another language.
As for history and geography, I have a proven track of success when it comes to improving performances.
I also teach online.
Any questions you may have, please get in touch.

Please ask for rates as the ones here are only indicative and based on one subject only.
