ABOUT THE TEACHER

Ciao! I'm a language teacher and also a language student, I studied Oriental languages and French, Spanish, Czech and Maltese. I was born in Florence and I spent my childhood in a small village in the Chianti countryside. I love to explore curious aspects of the different languages and I'm passionate about teaching Italian. After my studies (master degree in teaching Italian as a second language + CEDILS certificate - teaching Italian to foreign students), I taught in different contexts and countries (IIC of Beirut, private schools in Prague, companies in Malta and Florence and to many many private students!).

I try each time to adapt to every student's needs, with mainly one goal: making every student enthusiastic about the learning process and more and more confident. I use a communicative approach. I'm based in Oltrarno, Florence, and I can offer classes of Italian languages, cinema, culture, gestures, focuses on grammar, conversation, etc. in my terrace, or even on Skype :) Vi aspetto!
