I am an Italian native speaker. I have lived in the UK for 15 years.
I have been teaching Italian, French and English for the last 6 years, mainly private tutoring classes to adults and children.
Both my BA in Foreign Languages and Literatures and my Master’s degree in International Communication (English and French) have given me a solid knowledge or grammar, syntax, orthography and phonetics as well as teaching techniques. Having studied Italian and Latin grammar and syntax at high school too, I can confidently say my understanding of the grammatical foundations of Italian, French and English is quite strong.
I can adapt the level and amount of grammar to the abilities and requirements of my students. I strive to make my classes as rich and interesting as possible, including memory tricks for vocabulary and grammar.
