My teaching method is communicative: I like to start with a little game activity that helps recall the topics of the previous lesson, and I place a lot of value on oral and comprehension skills. What is important is to help students find a motivation and help them learn new things every time.
I hold a PhD in Italian and comparative literature at La Trobe University. I have taught English in Italian schools. I am originally from Italy, but I have also studied German for several years (I achieved an MA in German and English language).
Cancellation policy: please let me know the day before if you cannot make it to the lesson. Danke!
