A talented teacher and researcher offering lessons of Italian to students of all ages and academic levels in Birmingham.

Methodology

I introduce a variety of teaching methods depending on the needs of the learners. I prefer a student-centred approach especially when students are of young age, since cultivate passion for the subject contributes to their engagement in learning and their improved academic results.

Background

I am a native-speaker teacher of Italian with a strong academic grounding, ongoing research projects, and fast-growing experience in teaching and learning. In a number of different language teaching roles, I have demonstrated that I have very high expectations for all students, whatever their age, background or ability. I carefully differentiate my planning, create personalised resources, and use a rich mix of teaching strategies to engage students and inspire them to learn and grow. My impact on their development has been clear to see.
I have also used my skills as an educator within a commercial setting, training staff and leading their linguistic development. I have shown that I work extremely well in different sorts of teams, maintaining a clear focus on standards and targets while always supporting others to deliver impressive collaborative results.
