Hello everyone! My name is Sebastiano Alessandroni and I am an Irish teacher living and working Rome. I was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved here at the age of 7! My father is Italian so I am native in both English and Italian. I attended St Georges International School and completed both GCSE and International Baccalaureate diplomas. In 2012 I attended Loughborough University in the United Kingdom. I received a Bachelor of the Arts Degree with a final score of a higher level 2:2. During the same year , not knowing what to do with myself after my degree, I decided to start teaching, which I thought was a great way to work whilst travelling around the world. In October 2015 I completed my CELTA teaching certificate and later on that month I began teaching at a private institution in the city centre. I worked there for approximately 1 year before I decided to create my own ESL centre (You & I English Cultural Association). I enjoy physical sports and played rugby for most of life at both professional and amateur levels. I competed in mixed marital arts, practicing boxing, Muay thai and Brazilian Jiu Jiutsu.
In terms of my teaching style I adopt a method based on the individual. I believe, in order to successfully teach someone, you need understand their personality, how they assimilate information better and how to deliver the lesson. I have worked in a lot of Summer Camps from 2011 all the way to 2015 and schools which tend to impose one methodology for all their students. However, I now realise that this is impossible to carry through , as different students will learn in different ways.
