I am a native Italian speaker and have been teaching Italian for several years at Universities and other institutions. I teach individuals and groups, children and adults. I love my language and I love to teach it. I tend to customize my classes to individual needs. I also developed a book of Italian grammar and exercises. I use a variety of resources including books, contemporary Italian songs, fun DVDs and internet material.
During my teaching, I like to incorporate Italian culture, music, literature, history and, of course, food and wine traditions and many other things as they come up. I speak and am very familiar with other European languages such as French, German, Spanish, Latin and ancient Greek, all of which have helped me make linguistic and cultural connections among languages. I also like to give travel tips to students who have never been to Italy.
It is very important to me that my students have a pleasant and fun experience that may help increase their motivation in learning Italian.
I hope that you will find this interesting, too. Arrivederci.
