I am a native Italian/English speaker, with over 16 years of Italian language teaching experience, including work in international language schools.
Having learned Italian and English simultaneously as a child, I possess native proficiency in both languages, allowing for excellent comprehension of (and ability to explain/translate) idioms, colloquialisms, and language nuances to help students converse more naturally. My university studies further deepened my understanding of the structure and grammar of the language, so I can teach and explain grammar rules in a way that's easy to understand and apply. I will help you build a strong foundation and get you speaking!
Lessons are individually tailored to each student's needs and individual methods of learning. I do assign homework, as continued practice outside of lesson time helps to reinforce topics and concepts. I may employ a combination of immersion methods and translation exercises, depending on the student.
