I have taught in Rome for five and a half years and have acquired a variety of experience there. I have taught elementary school children in groups and private lessons from basic beginner to intermediate levels. I have also created and taught a special project which consisted of teaching children's classes English through theater and Musical theater. The children loved it and it challenged me every week to come up with new ways to present the material to finish each weeks aims.
I have also taught adults of all levels, Test prep ( KET,PET,FCE,CAE,TOEFL), Business and Legal English, as well as English for Medical purposes. I taught with three different private language schools, Accedemica Britannica, Centro Linguistico Eurolingue and Easy Languages. I have also taught English for Nursing at the University of Rome La Sapienza. In the summers I also taught intensive English classes with Kaplan and Embassy CES. These were group classes with a maximum of 15 students per class. The classes were five days a week three and a half hours per class. They were grammar directed but were also dynamic, mixing communication games, projects and multimedia.
Along with this experience, I have some other experience which I think is very helpful. I've traveled to over 47 countries around the world as a professional singer/actress for over 15 years. And not least of all, I too have been a language student myself in Rome, Italy. These experiences give me insight into the challenges my students face in their language learning experience.
I have a CELTA certification From Cambridge University, UK. I also have six years classroom experience in the US and overseas with test prep, all levels adult and children, Legal and Medical English.
